Calm, controlled and very professional in Dallas

As we all know, police in Dallas, Texas, have identified Micah Johnson, a 25-year-old Army veteran, as the sole suspect behind the killing of five police officers last week. The gunfire erupted during a Black Lives Matter protest march. A professional photographer named Robert Moore was covering the march when he saw one officer had been shot, "and then the gunfire really opened up." Moore crouched next to a car with three officers, unable to move for almost two hours. He took a few photos, including the one below. It shows one of one of the officers who was behind the car with him.

After two hours there was a break in the gunfire and Moore wanted to leave this area. The officer in this photo (who is yet unnamed) stood up to create a human shield. Moore got behind him and they walked as hastily as possible back to the main police line. Moore said, "That guy was calm, controlled, very professional. To be in the presence of someone with such command lends an air of assuredness to the people around that things are going to be OK."
