If this had happened in South Florida...use of on-duty officers for funeral procession of cop-killer, TV cablenets would've crucified South Florida

Though I've been following this story since Father's Day, some good friends in the Dallas area have alerted me to the more recent angles to this tragic story that's so troubling on so many different levels that you hardly know where to begin.
Not that I've seen it covered even once in a serious way locally.

Maybe it's just me, but I can't help but think that if something like this had happened somewhere in South Florida, the cable TV shows would've absolutely made this a MUCH BIGGER story nationally than it has been coming out of Dallas, and put the bulls-eye directly on South Florida yet again.


With them, the default position on South Florida is that it is always presumed guilty until proven innocent.


But then you've probably thought the same thing yourself after seeing the way the MSM handles most news stories originating in South Florida, where, generally, no amount of bombast or skepticism is too much.

Dallas officers still seething over funeral procession for Police Chief David Brown's son
By Tanya Eiserer

The virulent eruption surrounding the decision to order an apparent last-minute escort Friday for the funeral procession of a cop-killer, who is the son of Dallas' police chief, shows no sign of abating.

Since word leaked Friday afternoon about the order made by Dallas police Deputy Chief Julian Bernal, I have been inundated by outraged phone calls, emails and text messages from current and retired Dallas police officers.

By Tanya Eiserer

11:54 PM Fri, Jun 25, 2010


A cop-killer who is the son of the Dallas police chief continued to stir deep emotions Friday as he headed to his grave.


An apparent last-minute decision by a deputy police chief to provide assistance during part of David Brown Jr.'s funeral procession angered some police associations.

The city manager quickly issued a written statement distancing herself and Chief David Brown from the decision.

Police release 911 call of child abuse incident involving David Brown Jr.

By Tanya Eiserer

2:21 PM Fri, Jun 25, 2010


On May 7, Lancaster teacher Roesanda Allen called 911 to report that one of her third-grade students had been the victim of abuse.

"He has a black eye," Allen told the operator. She told the operator that the 10-year-old boy told her that he "was talking back to his mother" when her boyfriend "whipped him" and "accidentally" him in the eye.
"

The way he did it was like he punched him," she said. "So I let him tell that story to another teacher and you know how you take your hand and you swing it back. He kept demonstrating that way."


The boyfriend was David Brown Jr, the son of Dallas Police Chief David Brown.

The boy told police that Brown hit him in the face, bruising his eye.

Speaking of police, I've got some news for you to take note of, though for now, it'll have to sound more cryptic than I'd actually like in order for me to keep some secrets close to the vest until the time is right: At the rate they're going, it looks like it's going to be a VERY BUMPY summer for the Hallandale Beach Police Dept.

Fact-filled tales of their serial incompetency, un-professional behavior and general buffoonery under HB Police Chief Thomas Magill, as well as their longstanding history of mis-leading the public -as recently as two weeks ago, which I witnessed myself- not to mention, their time-honored history of petty threats and acts of intimidation, are all going to be coming out for the whole community to hear and judge for themselves.
Trust me, it isn't a pretty picture.

Though it's hot and humid as hell already, and only getting worse over the next few weeks, for some people in this community who have a lot to fear from the truth finally coming out and being fully known, it'll actually feel like they're on thin ice
.
And for good reason.

What a night we had! #HollywoodFL based photographer/entrepreneur Esther Chuang with a very elated Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy at his Victory Party, held at Leo Anato's Atelier3/AT3 on Harrison Street & S. 19th Avenue, Hollywood. AT3's great environment and the amazing variety of food prepared by chef Kevin Dreifuss, former owner/chef of ENDS MEAT restaurant, was SUPERB! November 2016
