Leading Off (8/7/09)

1. A TABC investigation found fault with the officers responsible for a June raid on a gay bar in Fort Worth that resulted in one man suffering a serious head injury. They were faulted for several things, but mostly for acting like TABC agents. Also, the U.S. attorney’s office told the Star-Telegram it would not conduct a special investigation into the Rainbow Lounge raid, presumably concluding, “Hey, they acted like TABC agents. Whadya want us to do about it?”

2. A 13-year-old girl police thought was 17 was mistakenly held for nearly two weeks in the Dallas County Jail with adult inmates. Police are now trying to determine how they didn’t know she was that young, especially since she claimed to be 14, then 17. Also, I should point out, she was caught stealing clothes and candy. I’d call that a clue.

3. To save money, Dallas will probably reduce its trash pickup schedule to once a week. The person most upset about this? Glenn Arbery.
