    The suspect beat the shit out of a white lesbian.

    The suspect is a black male.

    Ignore an attack on a homosexual, or arrest a black man?

    Normally a black man who beats up a white woman in a town like that is a dead man walking. But I guess the victim being a goddamn man-woman homo negates the 'woman' part in their Southern-gentleman minds.

      the Dallas County DA and the County Sheriff.

      This is potentially a "conundrum" for Dallas County Democratic elected officials.  Not simple.

      Mesquite is not in Sheriff Valdez's jurisdiction, arrest-wise.  Warrant-serving-wise, maybe.  And the police have to make their report and submit it to the County DA, Mr. Watkins, if I'm not mistaken.  Maybe with regard to whether state of federal law applies, they are still sorting this out.

      I have seen no local coverage of this in Dallas media, except WFAA-TV and the Dallas Voice.
