Dallas police chief asks group to stop downtown protests

🕐 1 min read

DALLAS (AP) — Dallas Police Chief David Brown says he won’t meet with organizers of the July 7 protest where five law enforcement officers were shot and killed unless they cancel any future downtown protests.

Brown posted his email exchange with organizer Dominique Alexander, founder of the Next Generation Action Network, to a police blog Wednesday a few hours before a scheduled 6:30 p.m. protest. Police officials say the protest was still scheduled as of 4 p.m. and officers would continue their duties at the event as planned.

Alexander didn’t immediately return a message left by The Associated Press.

In the email exchange, Alexander agreed to compromise by making the event a rally instead of a march. Brown said holding the events downtown poses a tactical threat to police regardless.
