Dallas residents call for police chief's resignation, decreased police budget after use of force during protests
While residents gave their names neither the city council speakers nor the livestream spelled them out. This meeting comes on the heels of a tense Austin City Council meeting where residents called for similar action as their Dallas counterparts. Four Austin City Council members said they lost faith in Austin Police Chief Brian Manley after use of force on protesters in that city. The mayor and council have a binary choice: You either hold DPD accountable right now or you endorse what happened on that bridge, said one resident during Fridays city council meeting. Kevin Felder, President of the Dallas NAACP and a former city council member, said Dallas has a decades-long history of police brutality against black people.
More details on Dallas police ambush and gunman
Five officers were killed and nine others wounded during a protest Thursday, when a gunman targeted them following the deadly shootings of two black men at the hands of police officers this week.
