ArlingtonPD #Tweetalong 08/16/2012


Due to some unforeseen difficulties I am later than usual in posting this transcript.  Because of this, I was not able to put the time-stamps on that I normally do.  Keep in mind that the time-stamps (when included) are based on when the twitter post (via @ArlingtonPD) was posted and not the actual time of the call.  Posting of tweets by ArlingtonPD are delayed for the sake of officer safety!

Arlington PD gives press release on Graffiti Crime

{NOTE!!  We at @DFW_Alerts do  not take sides, but simply report what we see/hear.}

{In posting the below article, we are neither speaking for nor against Gay Rights, Gay Pride, or related but simply reporting on the act of graffiti}


@Arlington PD gives press release in response to hostile messages left in an Arlington Neighborhood on June 10, 2012.  In attendance was: Will Johnson – Acting Police Chief,  Thomas R. Anable – President of Fairness Fort Worth , &  Chris Cook – ArlingtonPD Seargant.

A video surveillance capturing suspects in the act of the vandalism was obtained. This was key in identifying the suspects.   All suspects will be charged with graffiti 1,500-20,000 which is a state jail felony in Texas.

According to Sgt Chris Cook (of the ArlingtonPD) the criminal episode was reported as a “hate crime” to the FBI using the UCR process.

Says Acting Police Chief Will Johnson:

Nothing is more disturbing to a police chief, to a police dept and community than Experiencing a crime that was committed for no reason than hatred.  Our commitment from the initial stages of this investigation was to provide equal protection to all 13 of our victims. The evidence allowed detectives to identify 5 suspects and obtain arrest warrants for those involved in this criminal act these suspects range in age from 16-18 years of age and are a mix of female and male suspects.

The cornerstone of Arlington’s crime fighting strategy is community engagement. We are committed in Arlington to preventing crime, especially crime directed toward an individual for no reason than hatred.  This type of behavior will NOT be tolerated. They will be fully investigated & to the extent possible prosecuted to the full extent of law

Says  President of Fairness Fort Worth Thomas Anable:

The citizens of Arlington should be proud of the police dept.  We are looking forward to working with our dept and with the city of Arlington.  The way the Arlington Police Dept. handled this situation is text book perfect, I can’t stress it enough.
