Suspected Dallas Gunman Blamed Police ‘for Taking His Son,’ Father Says

The father of the suspected gunman who opened fire on Dallas police officers Saturday morning mentioned his son had recently lost his household and custody of his kid — and he had placed the blame on police.

“He said, ‘I got practically nothing left.’ He mentioned, ‘I’ve lost all the things I have, and I’ve got nothing at all left, and they’ve taken my son.’ And he did blame the police for taking his son,” James Boulware’s father, James Ray Boulware, told ABC News Saturday.

Dallas police said the suspect, who died throughout the attack, identified himself as James Boulware, but police stated they could not confirm the identity.

James Ray Boulware said his son felt pushed past his breaking point.

“We don’t have a justice method in this nation. We have a legal method, and there is a huge distinction, And without the need of a lawyer, he could not get justice,” Boulware stated. “We all have a breaking point and they pushed him past it.”

“Was he a perfect person? No. None of us are,” Boulware added. “But did he deserve to shed his son? No.”

When ABC News reached James Boulware’s mother, she mentioned she was “so glad none of the police have been hurt,” but declined additional comment on the circumstance.
