Dallas police chief retires in wake of cop massacre
Dallas Police Chief David Brown, who’s best known for making an unprecedented decision to use a police robot to wipe out a serial cop killer, has announced his retirement after 33 years on the force.
The 56-year-old Brown did not give any specific reason why he was stepping down, but said he would leave his post on Oct. 22, according to a Dallas police bulletin published Thursday afternoon. He said he plans to address the media about his retirement on Sept. 8.
