Dallas Struggles With Rising Crime. At yesterday’s Public Safety Committee meeting, they knocked around the idea of not arresting people who are caught with less than 2 ounces of weed so that cops don’t waste time booking weed smokers into jail when they could be instead dealing with violent offenders. Homicides are up 10 percent (178 compared to 162 at this same point last year).

COVID Update. Yesterday Dallas County reported 335 new coronavirus cases and four deaths. Collin County added 74 cases. Mask up, and do your part.
