The Dallas County District Attorney said in a release on Wednesday that the grand jury no-billed those officers involved after evidence was presented about the July 7, 2016 attack, reports KSAZ-TV.

"Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with the families of those who lost their lives that night, the officers who were injured, and all of the men and women who courageously put themselves into harm's way, all in an effort to protect our community," the DA's office said in a statement.

Why was there ever even a question about this? They successfully ended a terrorist attack,saved lives,and rid the world of yet another complete waste of life. They should have been given a damn parade thru downtown Dallas!!!

There should not even had been a grand jury those officers saved lives by blowing the stupid SOB up. Dallas Officers gave their lives protecting their citizens. The Mayor should be arrested for telling them not to wear their vests.

In answer to Frankie's question: The damn liberals don't like it when the good guys win, period!

There was no reason to convene a grand jury to see if the extremely brave Dallas PD Officers acted properly, THEY DID. Their own brothers in blue weer shot at and killed. They should be commended for using the robot to end this situation. They stopped a very bad situation from becoming much worse .

BUT THE POOR ROBOT SACRIFICED ITS LIFE! I'm sure there is a do-gooder outfit somewhere that will raise that issue, probably composed of Millennial techno-geeks.
