Dallas Police Chief David Brown Would Prefer Not to Be Called a "Cocksucker"

Dallas Police Chief David Brown engaged in a brief Twitter spat with DMN reporter Scott Goldstein Monday. It all stems from an incident outside of Brown's office, when Tanya Eiserer, longtime crime reporter with The Dallas Morning News, dissatisfied with the fact that she would not get the exclusive she'd been promised, shouted "cocksucker" and "asshole."

According to The Black Police Association of Greater Dallas, those words were aimed at Brown. The DMN claims Eiserer was simply cursing in frustration at no one in particular. Frankly, who cares? In the friction of the journalist-public servant interaction, sparks will fly. But Brown hasn't forgotten it, and he took Goldstein's bait when the reporter sent out this tweet:

I haven't yet gotten tired of seeing the following tweet associated with the official Twitter account of the police chief. You've got to admire the man for leaving it up instead of deleting it. Brown responded thusly:

This fleeting instant of laudable candidness Brown soon regretted.

The year is young, but this exchange, I think, is a strong contender for best of 2014.

Fire him! Just like Rhome, pride and greed active all will fall. The black police association is only to keep racial divide. If it wasn't there, where would the race card be?

Why do we need a "Black Police Association of Greater Dallas"?

He's a PIG.  He is a cocksucker and asshole.

This Tanya Eiserer person sounds homophobic.  Wasn't Alec Baldwin fired for saying the same thing?


And why does she care about getting an "exclusive"?  Just interview the chief and call it an exclusive.  Done and done.  No one gives a crap about exclusives anyway except the journalists claiming they got one.

Language like that will get you thrown out of a baseball game--just ask Crash Davis.

The incident the chief is tweeting about happened in 2011. At least he doesn't hold a grudge.

I just don't understand what happened here. 

Journalists, unlike other mortals, just never use that kind of language when thwarted or frustrated by a public official who dodges the press or cancels an interview.

And I'm sure neither of those words have ever passed the lips of any of the comment-posters here.

Your post about this is so much more honest than Tim Rogers'.

She should be barred from further contact with city hall, and cited for abusive language to a City official

Reporters have to realize the golden age of assumed superiority is over, and the news media polls as low as dirt.

@P1Gunter If someone had called Bullock a cocksucker in public, he would have beaten the shit out of them in the road, if he didn't end up beating them to death.  So, yeah, Brown would have to get a little more physical to survive in Deadwood.
