New Delhi: Calling the latest development concerning the fatal shooting of policemen in Dallas, Texas “horrifying”, United States President Barack Obama on Friday spoke about “what tremendous tragedy” had occurred in Dallas and exclaimed that the guilty won’t be spared.
Speaking from Warsaw in Poland where the US president is attending a Nato summit, Obama said that the police in Dallas were on duty doing their jobs keeping the people safe. “We are praying for their recovery,” Obama said of the six officers who were critically injured during the gunfight.
Addressing the issue behind the protest in Dallas, Obama exclaimed that there were “no possible justification for these kinds of violence”. “Justice will be done,” said Obama, and added that police in the US have an extraordinarily difficult job.
Obama said that the administration will look into the realities of people armed with powerful weapons which make onslaughts more deathly and tragic.
A total of 11 police officers were shot during a Black Lives Matter rally in Dallas protesting the institutional killing of Philando Castile and Alton Sterling. Five police officers succumbed to their injuries.
