Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
IMHO even the recent ugly and sad events in Dallas, Texas represent part of the raising of the middle finger. The establishment elites are unable or unwilling to acknowledge any responsibility for pushing their agenda too far on the weakest in our society, or both. When this happens the weakest links break. That is, I believe, what happened with the shooter.

That he shot officers serving one of the police forces best responding to the need for more outreach and community policing is an ironic irrelevance. This US Army trained marksman simply broke and took out his anger on the nearest available target, police protecting marchers who were protesting the same thing he claimed to protest. This will increasingly be par for the course.
