Dallas PD's Lineup Of Old Chief Photos

Speaking of old photos ...

Here's one more stroll down Amnesia Lane courtesy the Dallas Police Department. A month after posting its old-car collection to Facebook, the department's done uploaded a photo lineup of its chiefs, dating back to James Carter Arnold, who served as the chief in 1881. (Wonder if he liked his gig.) There's my man Jesse Curry, poor guy. And Terrell Bolton too, ugh. Billy Don Price looks like he should have been hosting a late-night talk show, and I bet Claude Trammell didn't take shit from no one (nope, he sure didn't). Incidentally, I'm now thinking about going with the Epps Knight.
