Is Dallas Sliding Towards Chaos?

In a city in which residents who are unlucky enough to live in the part of town where you can be attacked and killed by packs of dogs, in the past 5 days, 7 people have died in shootings, all in southern Dallas.

The mayor believes his Grow South initiative is going swell. He and Dallas Police Chief David Brown announced a new plan to deal with the spike in violent crime. Regardless, in a city in which residents who are unlucky enough to live in the part of town where you can be attacked and killed by packs of dogs, in the past 5 days, 7 people have died in shootings, all in southern Dallas. That brings the number of people murdered in Dallas this year to 57, a 42 percent increase over last year.

Clearly this city has leadership problems. But will anyone ever be held accountable for anything?
