Activists Call State Troopers In Dallas ‘State-Sanctioned Violence.’ Cruz Blasts, ‘Stop Demonizing The Police’


After violence surged in Dallas and the Dallas Police Department requested aid from the state government, on November 18 Texas GOP governor Greg Abbott directed the Texas Department of Public Safety to provide support, including sending Special Agents and State Troopers. Now Texas activists have lashed out, calling Abbott’s plan to send help “state-sanctioned violence,” among other criticism. That prompted Texas GOP senator Ted Cruz to blast them, writing, “This is nuts. As Dallas murder rates surge to historic highs, radical activists are calling Texas State Troopers ‘Occupying Forces’ and ‘State Sanctioned Violence.’ Stop demonizing the police, whose job it is to keep everyone safe.”
