The potential Austinization of Dallas: And why we cannot allow it.

The leadership of Keep Dallas Safe spent last weekend in Austin, and boy are our hearts tired.

The initial drive into the city was noneventful, until we entered downtown and were surrounded by huge, populous “tent cities” as far as the eye could see. There were parking lots full of cars acting as makeshift homes, groups of tents (commercially made and otherwise) lining the streets for blocks and blocks. In broad daylight, we witnessed prostitution, dealing of hard drugs, and untreated mental illness in full display.
