Hip-Hop heavyweights respond to Dallas police shooting


Tensions in America are at an all time high as five officers of the Dallas Police Department and Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) were killed while seven others and two civilians were wounded during what began as a peaceful rally against police brutality in Dallas, Texas on July 7.


On Thursday, several snipers reportedly opened gunfire on a downtown Dallas march for solidarity in light of the murders of slain Louisiana native, Alton Sterling, and Minnesota high school cafeteria worker, Philando Castile.

Though a number of major media outlets initial named innocent rally-goer, Mark Hughes, as the party responsible for the shooting, police have since arrested two actual suspects while a third suspect was said to have killed his or herself during a stand-off with law enforcement, according to CBSNews.
As of now, none of the incarcerated or deceased suspects have been identified.
In the wake of the mass murders of police officers in Dallas a number of music honchos and social media warriors have taken to Twitter to reflect on the numerous tragedies against humanity.
While a majority of the Hip-Hop who’s who commented on the nation’s social unrest, a handful of digital remarks were made in response to former Republican House representative Joe Walsh’s MESSY tweet in which he appeared to be a threatening Black Lives Matter protesters and President Barack Obama.
