Fort Worth Officer Smoked Pot in Police Car

A citizen saw him sitting there in his patrol car, smoking pot, and turned him in.

Perhaps FW should run an IQ test for all  incoming new hires.

David Brown, Dallas’s New COP

He won out over 5 other guys under consideration for the same appointment. One of them as far away as Louisville Kentucky.

David Brown spent the last 5 years working second in command to the current Chief, who’s imminent retirement demands a new chief be named to replace him.

Chief Brown is from Texas, actually born/raised in a Dallas suburb. His stake is here, along with his fam and friends.You don’t get any more real/local/native than that. Brown is a hardliner, a by-the-book man. I imagine he’ll do very well. And with all the scandals involving Dallas law enforcement and city council members over the past few years, Dallas needs a good name and a good rep.

Some articles just released on Mr. Brown’s appointment:

I’ve been wondering about former mayor Ron Kirk. Haven’t heard anything much about him since his appointment.
