The Dallas police chief has a message for Black Lives Matter protesters – get a job!
With the police department, that is.
In a press conference Monday, Dallas Police Chief David Brown told young black men to improve their communities by joining law enforcement in their hometowns.
“Become a part of that solution,” Brown said. “Serve your communities. Don’t be a part of the problem. We’re hiring. We’re hiring. Get off that protest line and put an application in. We’ll put you in your neighborhood and we will help you resolve some of the problems you’re protesting about.”

In fact, that’s what Chief Brown did himself.

I actually left college my first semester of my senior year to come back and apply to the Dallas police department. Do something about what I was seeing in my neighborhood. My first beat was my old neighborhood and that was just happenstance. I’m the kind of person, I probably wouldn’t protest or complain, I’d get involved and do something about it by becoming part of the solution.
And that’s still in me, that keeps me going. I get so much satisfaction that I can do a small thing to help this community. I just love Dallas. I love serving. It’s part of my character. It’s part of who I am. Out of all the crap we have to take as police officers, the satisfaction you get with serving is much more gratifying. It’s like that for a lot of police officers in this country.
It really is the perfect solution. For all the complaints about there not being enough black police officers or that the officers don’t reflect the community they police, there’s an easy fix. Time for BLM protesters to put their money where their mouths are and be the change they wish to see.
