Dallas Chief Back To Work

Two-and-a-half weeks after his son was killed after murdering a Lancaster Police officer Dallas Police Chief David Brown is scheduled to be back in the office today. 
It’s been a rough time for the new chief; his son murdered Lancaster Police officer Craig Shaw and Jeremy McMillian, then was shot and killed by officers returning fire.  Then during his son’s funeral police administrators a couple ranks lower ordered a motorcycle escort to help get through traffic.  That was done contrary to the Dallas City Manager’s orders and without Brown’s knowledge angering the Dallas Police Association.  Nobody from the City of Dallas has held the chief responsible and both City Manager Mary Suhm and Public Safety Committee chairman Mayor Pro Tem Dwaine Caraway have supported Brown.  The chief is scheduled to make his first public appearance tomorrow morning when he addresses the monthly breakfast of the Dallas Crime Commission.

    It is interesting that KRLD didn’t name the lower ranked chiefs who ordered the police escort. I feel for Chief Brown, but more than this, I pray every single day for the officer’s Shaw;s family and Mr. McMillen..

    Here’s a good way to express support. I took flowers to my police substation on July 4. It was simply to say I support them and that they didn’t deserve the lack of respect shown them by the upper ranks of the DPD. Our officers deserve respect and honor.
