    "This may get somewhat complicated.  Watkins is black. "

    I think you should stop and think about what you are suggesting here.

      There were comment s from chrislove and Grizzard regarding criminal justice in Texas further up, and some others regarding how others thought this might "typically" play out here. I was tryi g to add some facts about local offic ials and perhaps paint a different picture . I dix not mean to imply Watkins would or could not prosecute a black person. My information was intended to enlighten those perhaps unfamiliar with the officials here that they might not fit their preconceived ideas of Texas and Dallas.

      Dallas is still a relatively conservative place, including some black prople as well. I am sincerely confident in my DA. He will see justice done rather than simlly try to "put criminals behind bars". It would be fair to say he will bring a heightened aware ness to the job.
      In Dallas County this will be complicated. It will not be business as usual as in the past in Texas.
      I hope that is clearer.
