The city of Dallas is on the brink of something it hasn’t seen in 12 years — In 2019, the police department has had 197 homicides with more than two weeks left in the year, but still doesn’t have a plan to address it.
Dallas Police Association Vice President Frederick Frazier accuses the police department and city leaders of dragging their feet to address a murder rate that’s at a 12-year high.
“Everybody’s alarm should’ve been going off along time ago,” Frazier said. “Every day in our city, they’re making another victim. Whether it’s a black-on-black crime or whether it’s a lady walking through the garage at Northpark. . . ”
