A dozen officers were shot
during what had been a peaceful protest in Dallas over the recent deaths of Alton Sterling, a black man shot by white officers, and Philando Castile, another black man also killed by police officers.

TGIF! Maybe next week will have more highlights, and less lowlights.
Time for me to walk on down the road...
