A user on Reddit yesterday posted the below video, which was recorded on August 17 as he cruised Malcolm X, between Hatcher Street and MLK Blvd. in South Dallas. There are three cars pulled over by DPS troopers within about three blocks from one another.
Police Chief U. Reneé Hall took the governor up on his offer to send state troopers to Dallas to help amid a spike in murders and violent crimes. They then did what state troopers do: they pulled people over, mostly in South Dallas. Late last month, officials revealed that the troopers had done so 12,000 times. A video like the one above shows how you get to that number.
The Redditor, ozboaz, said he’s lived in South Dallas for two years.
“I just wanted to raise awareness of what’s happening here, to those outside of South Dallas,” he wrote.
