The Dallas police could have probably saved officers' lives if they had MRAPs like those used in Afghanistan

After Ferguson, Obama made the mistake of banning certain military-style weapons including armored vehicles like MRAP's the heavily armored trucks that were resistant to IED's and ambushes.  With such a vehicle the police could have driven right up to the sniper without incurring the heavy casualties.  It was an order that very likely cost lives in Dallas and may cost more lives if police are presented with a terrorist threat.
