It might sound a bit cliché, but it couldn’t ring truer than it does today, “If you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the problem.”
Dallas Police Chief David Brown told young black men to get off of the picket line and sign up to be police officers. He said that the Dallas Police Department is hiring and it would be a great opportunity for people to be a part of the solution. Instead of complaining about the way things are, it’s better to do something about it in order to affect change. He even went so far as to say that young black men could be policing their own neighborhoods as a way to improve things and give back to the community.
Chief Brown tweeted about how much he loved serving his community. He talked about how he left college during the first semester of his senior year to join the Dallas police force, and he’s never looked back. Chief Brown has set a great example for young black men to follow. He’s dedicated his life to serving the city and the people that he loves. What could be more gratifying than that?
The Political Insider reports:
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.”
