These random murders have to stop. We have been given lip service by Chief Hall, Broadnax’s office and several city council members. They reason Covid has made crime reduction more difficult, and we say the reason is irrelevant. We know more officers on patrol leads to fewer violent crime incidents and homicides- but with the decrease in the overtime budget, this is impossible. Dallas remains 600 officers short, and there is no end in sight to these heinous shootings. KDS remains vigilant in it’s commitment to public safety and will pressure to end the incompetence coming from the City Manager.
