Following her initial comments about her brother, Nicole added on Facebook: "White (people) have and will continue to kill us off. The only difference is they serve the system hiding behind that blue suit and get off easy murdering civilians."

She later told her Facebook friends she would be shutting down the page.

Her brother, who was from Mesquite, Texas, reportedly had no criminal record or no known ties to terrorism, and told police he was acting alone in the shooting. He also claimed to be a U.S. Army veteran.

Remember the Dallas victims and see how they were honored around the country:
