    TX - 14 Assaults in Dallas' Gay Neighborhood Since September 2014


    A Dec. 22 attack in Dallas, Texas' Oak Lawn neighborhood, one of the centers of the city's gay community, brings the total number of assaults in that area to 14 since September, according to Gay Star News and local news station WFAA.

    The assaults have been brutal and have resulted in serious injuries. The incidents include mostly gay victims, who have had their skulls fractured, been struck from behind, stabbed and robbed. Some of the attackers made their feelings about the victims clear, using homophobic language.

    Dallas police say there has been another hate-fueled assault and robbery in the city's Oak Lawn district.

    The latest incident happened late Saturday night as the 54-year-old male victim was walking to a parking lot from the Round Up Saloon in the 3900 block of Cedar Springs Road.

    Police do not currently believe there is any direct connection between the attacks.

    "The offenses were committed by one black male, by two black males, by three black males, by three Latin males, by two white males, by unknown description males, by a black male and Latin female," Dallas Police Department Assistant Chief Randall Blankenbaker told WFAA.


    Don't believe Chief Blankenbaker at all. Jmo.

    "For weeks DPD has promised an increased presence in the neighborhood," advocacy group Rally for Change said in a statement published in LGBTQ Nation. "When pushed on the fact that such an increase has been spotty and largely invisible, DPD has pointed to officer shortages and has now even suggested that the protection provided by our tax dollars is not enough and that we should pay for expanded patrols by off-duty officers."

    Kim Davis wanna be's imo.

    Mark Cuban to donate $1 million for Dallas police response to Orlando mass shooting

    Dallas City News Releases

    Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban today informed Mayor Mike Rawlings that he plans to donate $1 million in support of the Dallas Police Department’s response to the Orlando nightclub shooting.

    The money will be earmarked for an estimated 16,000 hours of Dallas police overtime to be utilized at Chief David Brown’s discretion for enhanced counterterrorism efforts, including additional police presence in the Oak Lawn area.

    "I'm proud to be able to help the City of Dallas,” Cuban said.

    Added Rawlings, “Once again, Mark has demonstrated his devotion to his city by stepping up in a time of need. In the wake of national tragedies, we often hear empty talk from politicians and other influencers. With this pledge, Mark shows he is a man of action who cares deeply about his fellow Dallasites."

    Cuban’s donation comes days after a gunman killed 49 people inside the Pulse nightclub on Sunday morning. Also on Sunday, a man arrested in Santa Monica armed with guns and explosive chemicals was said to be on his way to the Los Angeles Pride festival.

    Police in major cities across the country are beefing up security, particularly in the LGBT community, in response to the Orlando attack.

    “The Dallas Police Department thanks Mark Cuban,” said Dallas Police Chief David Brown. “These funds will be used primarily to protect the LGBT community. We will earmark and track the expenditure of these funds to ensure its effective use in creating a safe environment."
