ROBOT KILLS DALLAS SNIPER
The Dallas shootings became one of the headline events of the week after police shootings in Baton Rouge and Falcon Heights took over media networks. An anti-police sniper sat on the roof of a Dallas building, engaging in a 45 minute battle with officers which ended after a robot killed the sniper. Chief David Brown gave his officers the task of devising a way to neutralize the suspect without endangering other officers. In the 20 minute time period that it took for him to update the press about the ongoing battle, the force came up with the plan. The idea was to use a robot carrying a load of C-4 to take out the sniper. They maneuvered the robot, which had been bought from Northrop Grumman in 2008 from $151,000, behind a brick wall with the payload, detonating it and killing Johnson, the sniper.
