Obama has been pussy-footing over Dallas

Since writing my previous posting yesterday on the matter of police shootings of black men in America there’s been another shooting. This time in Dallas and this time a revenge killing of five white policemen by — as it turns out — one black sniper.

I can’t say any more than I wrote earlier except that, this time, it’s likely to lead on to more copycat shoot-outs which may in turn lead, for all we know, to further escalation of the usual pattern of killings by unbelievably gung-ho police officers.

In speaking of the incident, President Obama was guilty of pussy-footing. Why did he say that police officers shoot twice as many blacks as whites? The real figure is twenty!
