18. Good to hear that this is happening back home

There are parts of the country where prosecution of such police abuse would be a matter of course, but in Texas, it doesn't happen very often. Maybe this is the start of something. DPD has a lot of good people in it. I know some of them. But it also has attracted rotten apples, as does most any PD at some point or other. It's the willingness to go after the dirty cops instead of sweeping their rotten behavior under the rug that makes one proud or ashamed of one's local constabulary. This may not make the Dallas PD the envy of the London bobbies, but it's a small step in the right direction.
