A Dallas Photographer Captured an Amazing Image of the Officer Who Saved Him

DETAILS: Heroic El Centro College Officers Injured in Dallas Ambush


Dallas Police Chief David Brown implored young black men to become part of the solution if they're upset about police officers' actions in their communities. 

He was asked during a press conference this afternoon what he would tell young black men, including those who have joined protests against police around the country. 

"Become a part of the solution. Serve your community. Don't be a part of the problem. We're hiring," he said. 

"Get out of that protest line and put an application in and we'll put you in your neighborhood and we'll help you resolve some of the problems you're protesting about."

Brown shared his own story of how he became a police officer, saying he was moved to join after watching the crack cocaine epidemic in the early 80s in Dallas. 

"I'm the kind of person, I probably wouldn't protest or complain. I'd get involved and do something about it," he said.

Brown said he had a "full ride" scholarship to University of Texas-Austin after high school, but opted to become a police officer instead.

He said since Thursday's attack, his family has received death threats.
