Dallas PD crushes the mainstream media with one tweet after threat to police headquarters

Never has so much been said with so few words.

The beleaguered Dallas Police Department was hit with an anonymous threat Saturday evening as the department struggles to accept the deaths of four of its own at the hands of a black man sympathetic to the Black Lives Matter movement. Adding to the day’s challenges, they faced a report of a suspicious person in the parking garage at their headquarters.

Amid the heightened concern, the department turned to its very active Twitter account to chastise the media for “making our jobs more difficult.”

In a series of tweets, the Dallas Police Department made it clear that when it comes to the media, they’re little more than a hindrance. One tweet might have said it all . . .

The reaction on social media was mostly supportive of the police, with one user going so far as to suggest “the media is responsible for a lot of our problems!” Plenty will argue that the observation is valid.

Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
