Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Two weeks ago, a crack team of You+Dallas filmmakers introduced us to Dallas Police officer Jason Groom, a former fireman now in his first year on the force. Groom's got the downtown beat -- lucky! In this, the second installment of "Deep Nights," Groom deals with a stolen purse at the downtown Greyhound terminal and shines a light (literally) on the homeless downtown.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
