Kunkle did the right thing. Now it's time to fix Lower Greenville

Dallas Police Department Chief David Kunkle announced Friday afternoon he had terminated DPD Central Division Sgt. Ramon Gonzalez for sending obscene email to me (using a City of Dallas computer) just 37 minutes after I was issued a now-dismissed citation for abusing the 911 system (DMN story - Chief's message: No bad cops - registration required).

Chief Kunkle has the final authority and responsibility for deciding on the appropriate punishment for this act. I support him as he went through what is obviously a difficult process.

LGNA is lying to its own residents. Again

Let's all join hands and repeat the BD Mantra for Lower Greenville

  • The streets belong to the residents, not scumbar patrons.
  • Our neighborhood streets are not parking lots for the scumbars.
  • If the scumbars can't provide free parking, they need to close their doors.

In Wednesday's edition of the DMN, columnist Sherry Jacobson calls for changes on Lower Greenville before someone else gets killed out here (link - It's high time to sober up to the chaos on Lower Greenville).

But for all the good points raised in the column, it's so sad to see our so-called neighborhood leaders from LGNA lying to their residents.

Again.

Even the cops tell you to call 911 for noise issues

Call it coincidence or bad timing, but the question of when to call 911 is not new in Dallas.

The answer is still the same - Anytime you have a problem which will require a police officer to issue a citation or take further action.

BD's readers have pointed him to the Ask A Cop column in the Lakewood Advocate Magazine June 2006 edition. This month's column, written by NE DPD Division Chief Jan Easterling, focused on the 911 issue.

BD is well aware that this edition was prepared way before the controversy on Lower Greenville took shape.
