The Shipp Hits the Fan: John Wiley Price Doesn't Know What "Public Property" Means


And here we thought we'd have to wait till 5. Not hardly. Let's take a look. At some point, surely, Maurine Dickey regretted not getting back into the barbecue business sooner.

Update at 3:59 p.m.: KTVT's Bud Gillett piggybacked on Shipp's story and was also there for this morning's altercation and has quite a bit of footage of Dickey telling Price, look, this is public property, so what's the problem? Price eventually tells Dickey she can see the satellites but only if the media leaves. Jesus. Now, let's jump for Channel 11's lengthy video. Rashomon!

If this is not proof that this guy, and many of his clan, are up to something no good, I don't really know what it takes. It's obvious that Paranoia is now an everyday event for Ole JWP...The clock is ticking louder and louder by the minute !

If you've been leeching off the public teat for what 26yrs, you would have the audacity to believe  public property was private property.  Term limits people!

She tried to get both the mavericks and cowboys to build arenas/ stadium on Chavez Brothers property, which her husband  steve wolens represented as their texas attorney. She and her husband lobbied and owned a part of brian postiak property company.

Watching John Wiley Price go to a Federal Pound-Me-In-The-Ass Prison for the remainder of his miserable life will be the highlight of my decade.  Maybe he and Don Hill can watch (and wash) each others' backsides in the shower.  Insofar as the investigation, the Feds don't run search warrants until the wiretap and other evidence has already made their case.  The good people of this county can rest assured that indictments are coming, followed by a fair trial and a lengthy prison sentence.  The self proclaimed "Our Man Downtown" a/k/a Texas' Number 1 Black can then rot in a cell without air conditioning for the rest of his life, as deserved.  AMF.

Face it, our politicians are equipped with the morals of gutter cats.

The problem with republics is the same as with monarchies. After a while, the noble intentions at the start are as dead as the noble individuals which founded the kingdom or the republic. (The methods of creation for either are equally bloody.)

If we want a representative government, we’ll have to create it.

The first thing we do is change from an elected to a selected form of government.

Pick names out an eligible citizen pool and they’re stuck with doing the job for one, and only one, four year term.

There is no such thing as a career in politics. (The only thing worse than getting stuck with somebody who didn’t want the job is getting stuck with some idiot who did.)

Eligibility requirements are:

• were you born here or are you a naturalized citizen?

• are you a permanent resident in a village, town or city within our borders?

• are you above the age of 25?

• are you healthy enough? (you don't suffer from any clinical health issue(s) or mental impairment(s) which would prevent you from fulfilling your duties?)

• have you never served on the government before?

• have you never been found guilty of a violent crime?

• have you never been found to be clinically insane?

Answer yes to all of these questions, you’re eligible for selection.

Don’t want to be bothered?

Go live elsewhere!

That would get rid of all PACs, K Street lobbyists, a lot of graft, waste and expense that WE'RE all paying for.

the truth is...

I've seen this before played out on playgrounds across the metroplex.  Common racist ghetto trash loses his shit because he thinks "whitey" is forcing him to play by the rules. Man oh man I would love to know what in his history makes this douchebag think the way he does.

People are so quick to judge. So JWP will be judged asguilty until proven not guilty. If the Feds have something on JWP I wish itwill be revealed soon but nothing has, otherwise it appears they are fishing for something that will stick. With this recent visit, it seems theyare still fishing, again nothing was found because now the top news is on simplercharges like “charges should be filed on him for closing doors in someone face”or "it a public place, he kept us out".  This is not news people.

The long and short of it is this: JWP was caught assaulting someone once again on camera (Anyone remember Fred Watts?) why is this a surprise to any of us Dallasites? The bigger issue is this man has no respect for the public he serves or anyone that isn't black telling him what to do.

Also, Dickey makes the same mistake as J W O--it is not HER property--listen to her term. It is, again, OUR property.

Also, why did she need J W P to look at any County items?

CBS 11--Okay, we gert your need to protect your video rights, but could you get your freakin logo off the CENTER of the screen? Really, this is not a plane crash or assassination. This wuilln ot go viral around the world. Get some perspective and a lower right case would still be just as good.

Some of you people need therapy, or at the minimum, an eye exam. Brett Shipp played up the incident for ratings, making it sound like he was, in effect, "clotheslined" by JWP. Hell, he'll probably be hospitalized by tomorrow morning! But taking a look at Ch. 11's video reveals something quite different. At no time can you see the commissioner's hand at Shipp's throat. It's akin to the NBA phenomenon of "flopping," wherein a player will fall dramatically at the merest touch, all with the intent of drawing a foul. Please, people! Don't let your hatred of JWP literally make you blind.

Shipp is clearly confused about the difference between "public property" and "personal fiefdom"

I'm no JWP fan, and this was inexcusable. Still ... if anyone in Dallas deserves to get his clock cleaned, it's Brett Shipp.

Karma on both sides: Shipp for being disrespectful to the President--some people will bite back. J W P for thinking he OWNS public property--and has shown a side we rarely see on tv....SO, can Shipp charge him with assault?

John.  Seriously.  No one is hating you.  We'd just like to know where our $400k went.  Show us the satellites and it all goes away.

Unless, of course, you like the publicity....which really is what this is all about.

Diane Birdwell

Where do you see an over-reaction by Shipp? He barely goes back, does not grab his neck or cry out in pain. He had no need to play this up, because it is simply a case of a video of an assault. The POINT is, it was committed by an elected official on public property on camera.

My eyes, all four of them, work fine. Ch 11's camera angle does not show the correct angle to say thathis hand did not touch Shipp's neck.

Yeah, you're right. I'm surprised that WFAA hired him.

Look up the word "racists" in a dictionary...that doesnt describe JWP...he may dislike whites...but he isn't a racists.....do yourself a favor and LEARN what a word means before you use it.....okay pumpkin?? ;)

Diane,

im  guessing you're a new arrival to the DFW area because  JWP is KNOWN for going ballistic with cameras running....he's been in fist fights...shoving matches....heated verbal exchanges (several this year alone) and property damaging behavior...ALL caught on BELO cameras...along with other local news stations.....

Diane Birdwell
Diane Birdwell

Okay, but why does she need HIM or his approval to get into ANY county office or locker? Who is the key control person? Who si the person who runs that facility? Any attempt to block a lawful look at public property should be illegal....

Ms Bookworm

All FOUR of them, huh? The Ch 8 footage doesn't really show his hands at all. At least you could see his hands in Ch. 11's footage. Shipp overreacted by saying JWP's hands were on his neck pushing him back. He pushed him in the chest area, and that was wrong, but it did not justify an exaggeration like that. And he made it seem that the satement that, "I'll split your throat" happened during the hand-on-neck physical contact. Not so! It took place several minutes later, after the meeting with the BBQ queen inside, and after they were all back outside. Put on your extra eyes and watch Chl. 11's footage again.

my dictionary says bias or belief towards a member of another race on basis that one is superior to the other.. if JWP isn't a racist.. i don't know who is.

Did you miss JWP's "You are white.  All white people go to hell." comments?

Diane Birdwell

Actually, racism DOES apply in this case. "hatred or intolerance of another race or other races." from dictionary.com/Also, in the past, some blacks have tried to say tha they could not ever be racist, because it is part of a power game. Only people with POWER can be racist. Well, J W P and his cronies have controlled Dallas County politics for years, it seems as if millions in county tax dollars have gone to his friends--all black, so far, and his defense is based on  the race card. So, YOU need to understand what RACISM is and is not. To be racist is to show bias --and usually some action attached against a certain group. You do not have to believe your group is better than others, just that you believe that  the other group is wrong, worse, etc.... And here is the point YOU don't get---you apply that belief to all who fit the description, as when J W P said that, "All white people can go to hell." Get a grip. Get a dictionary, and better yet, know history in the South,

Diane Birdwell

No, lived here most of my life. I have been both on the same side AND opposing side to J W P in political things, but I have never seen him do this since--what, 1994? If you recall, he baby-stepped across roads, bent windshield wipers and painted signs. He did hurt one person's ankle, but most of his antics were aimed at property or in verbal assaults in front of cameras--that is what I meant. In the last 15 yrs, he has grown very quiet in pubilc, until about a year ago.....

Yes. He constantly interrupted President Obama in a most disrespectul manner during an interview. Then he whined about it on Facebook when the president told him about his ill manners. Whining twit got exactly what he deserved.

Diane Birdwell

I did--nowhere does Shipp imply that the comment was made simultaneuously with the assault. In fact, he says it to clarify that there was no misunderstanding of what J W P had JUST SAID to him. Shipp used a technique used by teachers and cops all the time. By reiterating the threat, it gives the person who made it a chance to argue it back, clarify or dispute. All J W P could do was rustle papers in his hands... and when my students do that, that is the sign of, "Crap, how do I get out of this now?"

Also, to hit someone in the neck---ever happen to you? Put yourself in his place, egos and names aside. You are going somewhere, anywhere, and a man does that to you. You are defending or even minimizing it? Unbelievable.

My eyes and EARS work fine. Check yours, please.

Thank God for Tarrant County

So what your saying is that JWP had time to cool his jets and think about what just happened (which the video shows) and THEN came back to let Shipp know he was going to "..split his throat".  WOW - what an amazing leader for the county of Dallas.

"All of you are black, you can go to hell."

Not quite the same as, "You can all go to hell."

A public official telling a group he doesn't have to answer to them because they are of a certain race is the problem.

Not that a public official telling citizens to go to hell is ever appropriate.

Ms Bookworm

JWP did NOT say, "All white people can go to hell." The statement, made to a specific group of attendees at a Commissioners Court meeting, was, "All of you are white. Go to hell!" I'm sure you'll see that this is different than condemning ALL whites to hell. And it seems that more than you heard that statement incorrectly. Maybe that's the problem.

Hey, this white woman got the two mixed up too.  Perhaps channel 8 needs to put them  together in a story so we who get guys with blondish hair mixed up get educated.  

Brad Watson is off my respect list, taking a bit of channel 8 with him for biased journalism and being Fox-like when it was off base.  Hard questions, yes?  Being a brat and disrespectful over and over to a sitting President, NO!   Who on channel 8 ever asked Bush hard questions when they were so desperately needed?

That was Brad Watson, not Shipp. I realize that "all white people look alike," but try to be a little more precise.
