Fair Park Riot Erupts in South Dallas Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Tue, Jul 24, 2012, 07:33 PM

Against FBI.jpgDozens of irate residents swarmed the sweltering South Dallas streets; shortly after reports of a police shooting had spread throughout the neighborhood.

According to the Houston Chronicle, “the incident happened sometime after 5 p.m. Tuesday in a residential neighborhood about a mile southeast of Fair Park and about three miles southeast of Dallas.”

Although details remain sketchy about what prompted the violent confrontation with police in riot gear, however aerial video footage showed some fistfights breaking out among onlookers, while temperatures hovered above 100 degrees.

As reported by the Houston Chronicle, “no arrests have been reported as tactical squad officers arrived to support dozens of officers standing riot shield to riot shield.”

Yet, evidence has shown that South Dallas residents were not rioting to protest the FBI investigation of Dallas County Commissioner John Wiley Price, a Democrat.

I think its all sad because we r all as one. Everybody jealous of this person and so on and so forth. Everybody has to look at the situation... The police officer has family at home jus like you and I. Protection plays a big part but we as grown men and woman should kno better all these big tymers selln weed dope or whatever JUST GET A REAL JOB.... I love my kids and family and friends too much to loose my freedom over something stupid... Dont judge the laws just obey the rules life will be less stressful. Take care everybody.
