President Barack Obama said Saturday that the gunman responsible for killing five Dallas police officers was a "demented individual" who does not represent black Americans any more than a white man accused of killing blacks at a church in Charleston, South Carolina, represents whites.It was the third time in as many days that Obama has spoken about the fatal police shootings of black men in Louisiana and Minnesota that were immediately followed by a sniper attack in Dallas that killed five police officers Thursday night. Seven officers and two civilians were also injured. In addition to the five slain officers, seven officers and two civilians were wounded.The other attacks on police included a Georgia man who authorities said called 911 to report a break-in, then ambushed the officer who came to investigate.In suburban St. Louis, a motorist shot an officer at least once as the officer walked back to his car during a traffic stop, police said.
