By Matt Thomas, NewsRadio 1080 KRLD

DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – A week after the FBI conducted searches around Dallas County Commissioner John Wiley Price, the African-American Pastor’s Coalition is hosting an event billed on Facebook as a night of Prayer and Preparation for the commissioner.

The event will be held at Kirkwood Temple in Dallas Wednesday night at 7:00 p.m. DART board member Jerry Christian is the church’s pastor.

KRLD’s Matt Thomas Reports

The flyer calls for unity restoration and justice for Price and other elected and community leaders. The FBI raided the long-time commissioner’s office and home last week, seizing documents that search warrants allege may tie Price to theft, money laundering and other crimes. Price has denied any wrongdoing.

    Two letters: B.S.

  5. Deb says:

    Has he contacted Jim Adler?

  6. Infidel says:

    I have already started praying for John Wiley. I pray he goes to prison for a very long time.

  7. Baby daddy says:

    If you like him, it would not be a good idea to pray for justice.

  8. Hemroidious says:

    He needs justice alright. These pastors are paid to do this. The people who go to this event are stupid sheep. Why does the FBI have to clean their house for them.

    1. Ann woods says:

      If someone is backing someone or something, that means that they are a part of it. so I guess the pastors are part of crookedness.

  9. Guate says:

    Pray that he dont drop the soap in prison!

  10. jd says:

    why is it every time a black racist politician gets caught in the till all the black activist comes out of the woodwork and screams racism when all they care about is getting the crook off the hook by intimidation. anybody else tired of it?

    1. Hemroidious says:

      The answer is simple…Money.

  11. manofsuburbia says:

    After JWP has been a career politician for so many years, it’ll be hard to see him not being guilty of some sort of corruption. All career politicians have something to hide wheter it skirts the law or is outright illegal. The smart ones are the the ones who master the skirting and the careless are the ones who et busted on occasion.

  12. Smiling says:

    Bout time! JWP is a racist pig and I can’t stand him. It’s too bad, he’s a very smart man and should tailer ALL of his efforts for the positive.

    1. Hemroidious says:

      You are right. Just think of the good things that he could have done for south Dallas and the people there. What a greedy SOB.

  13. Laughing@JWP says:

    The City of Dallas is tired and weary of this bigmouth attenion-Wh***, and his antics. LOL, if he drops the soap in prison he might like the results he gets!!(just sayin!). JWP is overrated and it has been time for him to step down, to bad it had to come this way. When the feds come to town its for a reason.

  14. Tommy says:

    I was appalled that this guy wasn’t forced to step down after his racist outbursts at that council meeting a couple months ago. It’s time that the city started cleaning house. This is the first step. Decades ago this was a great city to live. Now nobody wants to live there. This is part of the reason why the Dallas Fort Worth area is such an expansive suburban sprawl. Why the population of the city of Dallas itself has been at almost a standstill yet the metroplex has exploded outside of the city. The reason why the Dallas Cowboys are no longer in Dallas. The reason we build toll roads from one suburb to the next trying to get around it and take us to the same if not better shopping, restaurants, and entertainment destinations.

    1. Sarah says:

      The population at a STANDSTILL? OH… must NOT be counting the thousands of illegals coming over your backyard. OH…….you while you were asleep, M. Hinjojas took off with your money after hiring illegals with stolen social security cards. OH… and while you were asleep JWP voted for new mayor who probably knows the background dirt on this. OH….while you were asleep Laura Miller did worse than this, I’m sure you know though. OH….you guys won’t shop at Redbird but I see your relatives getting their daily walk in. Not good to shop but good to walk. Separate restaurants, etc is called the separation game pretty much similar to the white flies I mean flight game. Do you prefer a black baby grand piano or a white one? This a game quiz. Do you prefer black skillet or white one? How about a white tv or black one? How bout white tires or black ones? What about white chalk board??? No this is the best one. How about white letters on your PC? LOL. what about white pupils in your eyes? Scary. Goodbye, I have more important things to do.

  15. Observer says:

    I pray for Mr. Price too. I pray that for once in his life, he saves his own soul by telling the truth and that his supporters will expect the right thing to be done instead of supporting a criminal due to race only.

  16. Jesisislikesoawesomesauce says:

    I shall pray to Joe Pesci.

  17. Curious says:

    How does a man have 18 criminal charges against him and still be allowed to serve as a politician? Look up his record at It’s an eye-opener!

    1. Catholic says:

      It is being done by other corrupted African Americans.

      1. Brooke Anna says:

        And there aren’t Caucasians who are corrupt? Just. Wow.

  18. NONYA BUISNESS says:




  19. JoeG says:

    Come on, why do blacks always say that he is being blamed because he is Black? If the guys is a Crook he deserves to be punished. Let them pray, but Pray for Justice, not Mercy.

    1. Sarah says:

      If the doctor says I am sorry you have Cancer, would you pray for Justice or Mercy? If you ran a red light and got a ticket, would you pray for Justice or Mercy? If your moma was dying would you pray for Justice or Mercy? Case closed.

  20. JWTX says:

    I will prayer this arrogant angry pompous man is through. He thinks acts so tough well he is finally put in his place amoung all the other crooks in office that have got away for years ripping off others to get where they are now!

  21. mikeC says:

    I am praying this keeps him from harming the public any longer and living off our tax dollars…

  22. Spider says:

    I think he should be praying for Mercy. If he prays for Justice, he is in deep chit!

  23. Sarah says:

    Disregard all posts below and above. These are from bored WHITE people who hate blacks. Wouldn’t theye be surprised that Moses and Jesus were possibly black. I guess they’ll choose Hell instead. Liars go to Hell, Racists go to Hell. Oh God wouldn’t send us pearly whites blue eyed intelligent greedy dominating beings to Hell would he? I don’t know I guess you can find out when you’re 50-70 years old and take your last breathe. In the mean time, enjoy your heaven on earth because you may not get to go the real one. Good Luck!

    1. TravlnTxn says:

      Be surprised that Moses & Jesus were POSSIBLY black??? How can you make such a stupid-assed statement???? Oh wait. I’ll bet I already know. Never mind.

      1. Catholic says:

        Jesus, Moses were White Jews, not black, there is not such a thing.

      2. Sarah says:

        revelations 1:14 says his hair was like wool

        and revelations 2:18 says he had feet of bronze

    2. Catholic says:

      We don’t hate blacks, we abominate them and the Whites that brought them to the Americas. They should have left them where they belong.

      1. Brooke Anna says:

        Wow really? Left them where they belong… maybe they should have left all the whites where they belong, right? In England…

        BTW- It is FULLY POSSIBLE for a man who has light skin, read… white, to have an ancestor who is a different ethnicity, read… African American.

        The only TRUE Americans are American Indians… you know… since they are the only ones who can lay claim to OWNING the land before it was taken by WHITES.

      2. Sarah says:

        Try taking them back.

      3. Jim says:

        Republican by chance?

      4. paperboy says:

        i pray for u

    3. Jim C says:

      Spoken like a true bigot!

    4. Rick says:

      Wasn’t that you who posted a whole bunch of other jibberish with your “oh, while you were asleep”? You seriously should consider counseling. It’s very clear you’re out of touch with reality.

  24. Ken says:

    I find it amazing that his own constituents can’t see how damaging he is to THEIR credibility!

  25. Mike says:

    First of all ,,Hes NOT African American..please google the definition for ‘African American’..second, the racist theif NEEDS prayer but he he needed it a long time ago. You re done John and your racist rampage on the city of Dallas has been stopped by none other than God himself! LOL ! I LOVE IT and I hope you get nailed!

    1. Catholic says:

      All African Americans that work for the City of Dallas are corrupted individuals. John Wiley Price does not work for the City, he works for the County and all African Americans that work for the County are also corrupts.

      1. Sarah says:

        Stereotyping is not christian-like but maybe you are not a christian. Old Sunday school teaching. By the way, God made blacks, whites, browns, reds whether you brought them here or not. Also if you brought certain insects from abroad hundred of years ago- try taking them back or something you got at Walmarts 200 years ago for that matter.

        Matthews 20:16 So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen. (please explain)

        Song of Solomon 86 Jealousy is cruel as the grave.

  26. Jack Russell says:

    I don’t know if JWP is guilty of any criminal charge. I am learning that I have a rare ability to presume innocence until the evidence establishes guilt. That having been said, this representative of a certain constituency who has intentionally riled and fomented the worst in our community is very difficult to have sympathy for. There is a variety of cultures in our community. This nation was not intended to support a variety of cultures, but rather to be an amalgamation of representatives of different communities who practice decorum and order to present all sides of each issue and lead this country with principles laid down by the forefathers along with the ability to amend things that they got wrong. JWP is a clown who satisfies an abberant yearning by people in this society who want to find fault, rather than enjoy opportunity. I hope JWP is not a crook. I suspect his history is an indicator otherwise.

    1. moondragon says:

      My feelings exactly!

  27. Catholic says:

    Another corrupt preacher. Praying for corrupts that had been doing corruptions for many years and were lucky to not be caught and if they were caught they got their butts free with the help of other African American corrupts. That is the way it goes.

  28. Cole Younger says:

    I pray he goes to prision he will make a good punk boy

    1. Sarah says:

      Do you like pornography too? Are you a christian talking like that? Your angel is recording this.

      1. Jason says:

        @Sarah??? Google condemnation and the Bible and read on. How can you speak out of both sides of your mouth if you profess you are a Christian. God is the ultimate Judge not you. Are most of these comments unnecessary? Sure, but getting worked up over them and spitting fire and Bible versus in a blog is not how I imagine Jesus wanted his message spread. Love for mankind makes the heart grow fond, not hatred and strife. God bless you Sarah but please drop the pen and pick up the sword.

  29. Scree says:

    Pastor’s Coalition: We pray that he receives a minimal about of years in the pen for his racism, cheating and lying. Amen.

  30. Tom says:

    Prayer is just an excuse for doing something helpful . . . and it is easy, too. Besides, if it doesn’t work, one can conclude that “Alas, it just wasn’t in His plan, but I tried”.

    Will the prayers concern “let’s hope that it does not get caught” or “let’s hope that he did not do any illegal activities”?

  31. paperboy says:

    all im reading is hate,racism,anger why?u think this is first time this happen god i pray for u all

  32. MN Graham says:

    JWP is a phony racist and someone should rip off his windshield wipers and stick them up his Kwanza ass with his Kwanza hat on

  33. les says:

    how in the HELL did god get involved in this . this one the most stupid thing’s i have heard in a long time

  34. And Justice for All says:

    HAHAHAHA….now this is funny….so long mulah

  35. NiteNurse says:

    When you are innocent then you have nothing to fear because God will protect you. So why does JWP need a bunch a prayer if he is innocent?

  36. Laughing@JWP says:

    Small Small Observation: JWP hardly ever keeps his mouth shut!!, But since this Investigation has started he has been subdued and not had very much to say(SHOCKING)…Now if he truly hasn’t done ANYTHING shady he would be spouting off and foaming at the mouth like a rabid animal.

    “ITS NO FUN, WHEN THE RABBIT HAS THE GUN” Mr. JWP remember all those workers you said made the “choice” to have kids, and that you hoped their lights get cut off because they couldn’t make it to work when it iced real bad here and schools were closed”. remember that statement BIG MOUTH?!!?? now look T YOURSELF AND YOUR SITUATION………………………..

  37. National Whistleblower Allen Carlton says:

    Who is the retiring high ranking Republican FBI agent in charge of prosecuting John Wiley Price ? The Texas Way

  38. Rick says:

    Is it me or has JWP actually shutup for the first time? If I were being persecuted for something I hadn’t done, I would be yelling from the tree tops! I believe most would. So why is John Wiley Price so quiet NOW of all times? Maybe he believes if he’s r-e-a-l-l-y quiet, this will all just go away. Yeah, I got an 8 x 10 photo of that happening! Let the games begin!
