11/20/07  Open Letter to Dallas Police Department

We are still having problems with 1038 N. Dwight (Arcadia Park in City Council District 6).

We are really frustrated with these people.

They constantly break the law.  They play loud music, scream and fight.  Teenagers are in and out during school hours, constant traffic in and out.  

They constantly stare at members of my family when we are outside.  

Our motivation for calling the cops has extinguished.  It seems the people at 1038 N. Dwight have the upper hand on the lawThey are made up of over 100 people.  They have a lot of thugs that support them.  Almost everyday, a new batch of thugs shows up.  Almost everyday, a new vehicle is seen at the residence.  These people do what they want when they want.


This is happening throughout Arcadia Park.  Thug after thug, street after street.  

Residents can be found, frustrated and tired of the same old thing:  We call the police, the police show up.  If we call the police, the police don't come on time.  If we call the police, a few people are arrested, and a few weeks the perps are back out.  

After calling the police 2 dozen times, the situation is still the same.  The thugs are running wild, doing what they want when they want.  They show us they don't care about authority. they have guns and that we should be afraid.

The conclusion is that people start saying, why call the cops nothing changes.


If the Dallas Police Department cannot control one gang infested home, how can they handle a gang or thug infested neighborhood?  We seem to be fighting a losing battle.

The bottom line: We are losing.  And the Torres family has lost, because we are moving out of the neighborhood.
