    Widespread confusion persists among merchants over Dallas’ new carryout bag ordinance, even as the law appears to be successfully moving shoppers away from throwaway bags. *** Half Price Books, for example, was erroneously told that its new reusable bags, which cost 10 times as much as the old bags, didn’t have the right wording. Kroger was chided because signs in its parking lots weren’t in Spanish as well as English. *** Half Price Books, after studying the ordinance closely, decided to invest in more expensive reusable bags to provide to shoppers. So people there were surprised when one of their...
  • What Dallas’s historically low murder rate can teach us about policing

    Washington Post ^ | January 12, 2015 | Radley Balko
    Here at The Watch, we’ve praised Dallas Police Chief David Brown and his staff for the department’s community-oriented approach to policing, openness and transparency about excessive force, its rejection of law enforcement as a revenue generator, and its First Amendment-friendly approach to protest. Now, there’s some evidence of a payoff. Dallas’ 2014 murder rate was its lowest since 1930 — the year Bonnie and Clyde met at a West Dallas house party. And the Dallas Police Department’s preliminary count of 116 murders last year — there is one unexplained death awaiting a ruling — would be the lowest yearly murder...

    Well, it seems the same Islamist presence is looking for a “base” (which is by the way, what “al-Qaida” means) for operations here in the Dallas metroplex area, and in fact has a big conference planned with some “heavy hitters” scheduled to speak. As reported by Western Journalism, “An Islamic conference scheduled for next Saturday in Texas features two speakers who have advocated for Sharia law, and one of them was an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center (WTC) bombing. “

Instead of getting suspended, Suh will be fined $70,000. That’s actually a more harsh financial penalty than a suspension would have been, as players on wild card teams are paid $22,000 for their first playoff game.

It comes from that cult-like pagan religion. Isn’t that the genius of Satan?” Catholic League president Bill...

Whether intentionally or not, Duncan misled authorities about his exposure to Ebola. When Duncan first presented to the hospital on September 25, he didn’t specify that he’d come from Liberia or even West Africa — the center of the Ebola outbreak. Duncan only said he’d returned from “Africa,” which could’ve meant one of dozens of...
