State to City: Yer in Trouble

The city of Dallas gets pretty well sliced and diced in a searing report released Friday by a Texas House of Representatives legislative investigative committee, which concludes that Dallas tries to duck its crime-fighting reponsibility by shoving it off on private businesses, engages in witness retaliation and uses official pressure to hawk moonlight business for off-duty cops working private security. I'm sure the Pravda version will be in The Dallas Morning News over the weekend. I will have a story in the Observer next Wednesday to explain what really happened. --Jim Schutze
