Protesters back in Dallas just weeks after deadly police shooting

DALLAS, T.X. (WNCT) – Black Lives Matters protesters took to the streets of Dallas once again Friday, just weeks after a shooting left five police officers dead there, and wounded several others.

It was the first time the Black Lives Matter protesters returned to the city since the shooting. Supports of the movement said they didn’t think it was too soon to protest.

“Some have said it’s too early. No it’s not too early to heal. And the only way we can heal is to continue to focus in on what we have to be about to bring an end to the violence,” said Dr. Fred Haynes of the Friendship-West Baptist Church.

Others thought the protesters were being insensitive and were disgusted by the protest.

During the protests, the group stopped to pray for the fallen officers.
