Dallas Officers 'Ashamed' By Escort for Cop Killer
June 28, 2010
Dallas police officers say they are ashamed by a deputy chief's decision to give cop killer David Brown, who is also the chief's son, a police escort on Friday, the Dallas Morning News reports.
Deputy Chief Julian Bernal gave the order Friday to provide 10-12 motor units and a squad car to escort members of the funeral procession of David Brown, who shot and killed Lancaster PD's Officer Craig Shaw. Escorts are usually reserved for dignitaries and officers who are killed in the line of duty.
Officers posted comments on Underground.com, a private message board for Dallas officers, and a message about a planned protest and a meeting at the Dallas Police Association headquarters to discuss the matter.

AS A RETIRED CHIEF, IT IS OBVIOUS TO ME THAT DEPUTY CHIEF BERNAL WAS PLACED IN HIS POSITION AND OFF THE STREETS SO HE WOULD NOT HURT ANYONE. OBSERVING THIS ACTION SHOWS ME THAT CLEARLY HIS SERVICES ARE NO LONGER NEEDED. HE HAS NO RESPECT FOR THE DEPARTMENT, THE OFFICERS AND MEN OR ANYTHING THEY STAND FOR. IT IS A DIRECT SLAP IN THE FACE OF ALL. I AM SURE THE OFFICERS PERFORMING THE ESCORT WOULD HAVE BEEN ANYWHERE ELSE AT THE TIME. I WOULDN'S BLAME THEM IF THEY COVERD THEIR FACES SO THEY WOULDN'T BE RECOGNIZED.
GOODBYE MR. BERNAL
