Dallas police shootings: Jada Pinkett Smith says ‘desperate communities do desperate things’

Dallas police shootings: Jada Pinkett Smith says ‘desperate communities do desperate things’ – Speaking to TMZ at LAX, Smith said that the atrocity, which is the deadliest single attack on US law enforcement officers since 9/11 in 2001, was further proof that America needed to take action. When asked how to stop the violence, the 44-year-old star said: “That’s a good question. Here’s what I know: you gotta do something because at the end of the day, it can’t keep happening. Desperate communities do desperate things. At some point we’re gonna have to do something.” After the camera man suggested a CNN special on the subject, she replied: “We are going to have to figure it out for sure. Trust me it’s on my mind.” As expected her comments have divided the online community, with some claiming that she was condoning the alleged acts of revenge. “Things MUST change with the police – no question. BUT to go on a shooting spree in retaliation is wrong on every level,” one commentator said. “It sickens me the BLM supporters posted comments like they did celebrating the killings. Should someone start taking out BLM folks for their actions (in retaliation) all h/E/ll will break loos.”
