Trump, tasers, and locker-room convos.

Donald Trump Finds Silver Lining at Dallas Fundraiser. He told the crowd that the “shackles have been taken off” now that the establishment is jumping ship. I can’t even imagine what an unleashed Trump sounds like.

Thief Gets Taser Treatment in the Middle of I-30. Clinton Lang, Jr. should thank the officers who took him down as he ran across interstate lanes in Garland. From the looks of this video, he nearly ended up in front of pearly gates instead of behind bars.

West Dallas Residents Saved From Eviction (For Now). HMK, Ltd. owns rows of shacks in West Dallas.
