“There’s no possible justification for these kinds of attacks or any violence against law enforcement,” Obama said. The President said, that he had spoken with Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings and offered his support and condolences. The FBI is already in touch with the Dallas police and anyone involved in this senseless murder will be held fully accountable, Obama said.
