“I'm Firing You! And Telling the World Your Sins—on Twitter!”

This powerful Dallas police chief has an unusual and very public way of disciplining wayward employees

Talk about public shaming, Internet-style…

Dallas Police Chief David O. Brown has fired or disciplined 27 officers and employees in the last year. And every time he brings down the hammer, he announces it on Facebook and Twitter, specifying exactly who the men and women are and what they did. On Dec. 30, it was five officers and a 911 call operator.

A giant step...

A giant step forward to gaining the public's trust and respect. Make this mandatory for all police departments and you will see a big difference. Two thumbs up !!!!



Its about time someone got the idea back into their heads that these people are acting as PUBLIC SERVANTS and get paid by our tax dollars.

We all share this eternally evolving present moment- The past and future only exist as inconsequential mental fabrications.
