As someone with law enforcement in my family, I am just shaking. That does not equal this. Senseless. Horrific. Heartbreaking.
These Dallas shootings are horrific. Killing these officers is morally reprehensible and completely counterproductive to keeping us safe.
In London I have to wake up to this. He was black. Shot 4 times? When will something be done- no REALLY be done?!?! https://t.co/OaLn60G6nm
Just heard about shootings in #Dallas Please everyone stop killing each other- no more guns. No more violence. No more murder. Horrible.
Violence will NEVER bring peace! Killing innocent officers won't bring peace. Riots won't bring peace-We must embrace mercy & love. #dallas
We are all hurting tonight. More violence is not the answer. #StoptheViolence
My heart hurts. Too much death. Too much hate. Hug your loved ones tight. Tell them that in the darkest times, we MUST love even harder.
Dallas,we mourn those who lost their lives protecting us and stand together, united, to cherish those we live and work next to #DallasStrong

This barbaric behavior under the guise of law is despicable, inhumane and heartbreaking. Justice for #AltonSterling https://t.co/PgG76xSk5t
Another day...another hashtag...
How many more times must this happen for us to matter? How many more must we lose? BLACK. LIVES. MATTER. #AltonSterling
1) In the interest of time, would ye noble patriots please provide a list of infractions punishable by spontaneous public execution? Thanks!
2) Upon receipt of this list, we'll return to our quarters and study up, eager to enjoy freedoms of white mass murders. #LIFEHACK
3) You chumps will NEVER provide this list... We see through you.
Thoughts And Prayers for Brent Thompson's family and the other 4 officers we lost and those injured! All lives matter #Dallas
Love to Louisiana #AltonSterling
I can't wake up to another innocent black man gone. Police reform NOW. Please @potus. #blacklivesmatter #howmanymore #PhilandoCastille
These last months have brought so much sadness. From Alton Sterling, Philando Castile, Orlando shooting, Dallas, to terrorist attacks of late Bangladesh, Istanbul, Baghdad, Somalia. Everyday there is violence like this reported and not reported. It becomes overwhelming that there could be such hatred and senseless killing. When I can't make sense of things I just start to write. I don't usually share my writing but I felt a desire to put this out there. Peace ✌️
My heart and prayers go out to his family #AltonSterling
To everyone threatening to unfollow me because I said #blacklivesmatter, PEACE. And also, #blacklivesmatter.
I can count 5 parents in the last 3 hours who have text me and said my child just asked me "AM I GOING TO DIE"?!? https://t.co/mXwlLYfqZq
What will my brown son's future be? What will your brown son's future be? The uncertainty is real. I beg you not to be a bystander in this life, but to go out and find ways to make peaceful change. Our boys need us so rather than launching into deep sentiment here on this platform, I promise to find ways to get involved and help. Please do the same. You can start by reaching out to your local politicians, legislators & government officials NOW. Let us be heard. God bless all the victims and families of these senseless CRIMES.
The unending heartbreak on the news is just beyond devastating & infuriating. I'm at a total loss. #AltonSterling #PhilandoCastile #Dallas
Brent Thompson. 4 more officers dead, names still unreleased. More wounded. Heartsick for Dallas this morning.
My heart hurts. God help us.
Sick, misguided mfs all around!
i have nothing left to say. i don't know how many more innocent people have to be killed before we recognize there's a problem. #dallas
There is tragedy. We answer it with tragedy. We demand justice. We seek vengeance. We hang our heads in sorrow. Sad week in the US of A
Stay safe, Dallas. 🙏🏼
My heart is with the families of the officers who lost their lives tonight and those who were shot. ❤️ https://t.co/NY47TlPNfb

So much Brutality in the world. We don't have all the info but looks like a cold blooded killing. UNACCEPTABLE!!!! https://t.co/G8QRDbti48

Beyonce performed the first verse of her hit song "Freedom" a capella in honor of the victims during her Thursday stop of the Formation World Tour in Glasgow, Scotland:

Kim Kardashian West took to her website to share her thoughts, writing: "I want my children to grow up knowing that their lives matter. I do not ever want to have to teach my son to be scared of the police, or tell him that he has to watch his back because the people we are told to trust—the people who "protect and serve"—may not be protecting and serving him because of the color of his skin."
