Shonda Rhimes hit back at those who have blamed the Black Lives Matter movement on the murders of five police officers in Dallas on Thursday.“If I hear one more idiot suggest that #BlackLivesMatter incited this… The level of ignorance is stunning. Just absolutely stunning,” she wrote on Twitter.On Friday, police identified Micah Xavier Johnson as the shooter in the attack. He was not affiliated with the protest or Black Lives Matter movement, but was upset over the deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, both of whom were fatally shot by police officers this week. According to Dallas Police Chief David Brown, Johnson “wanted to kill white people, especially white officers.” He was killed by officers after the attack (three other suspects remain in custody).
