The Dallas Police Department’s Minute-By-Minute “Complete Timeline” Of The First Four Days Of Protests Paints A Chaotic, Paranoid Look Into Officer Psyche.

Cover photo by Shane McCormick.

Listen, no one is going to blame you for not wanting to read the Dallas Police Department’s 85-page, “final” after-action report on the city’s wild first four days of (still-ongoing) police brutality protest activity.

Beyond just being long and detailed in all the wrong ways, the report really doesn’t move the ball too far past where the earlier draft we exclusively leaked in July placed it. It still paints DPD as heroic, still paints protesters as aggressors and still lacks any real culpability on the department’s part for the widely publicized mayhem or the injuries sustained by civilians throughout that opening weekend of action.

The last-week-released version of DPD’s opening protest weekend recounting does, however, bring one new thing of note to the table: It includes a 12-page portion of time-stamped play-by-play notes compiled by the department over the course of the four-day period in question.

This portion is significant in a few ways:

  1. It paints the entire weekend scene as overly chaotic — and overwhelming for the officers on the scene. Why, for instance, did DPD at one point dispatch a helicopter to try and locate a personal drone spotted near the protest activity? That just seems… inefficient at best, no?
  2. It very much portrays officers as paranoid throughout the four-day stretch. Consider, among other examples, the portions in which it goes out of its way to look askew at protesters who marked themselves as first-aid medics, or those who were wearing protective gear to defend against gas. And let’s not even start with the way it repeatedly derides those who threw canisters back at officers after those same canisters were launched into crowds across the city.
  3. Though presented in the report as a real-time recounting of what DPD saw go down at the protests, this portion is almost certainly filled with details added in after the fact. This is perhaps most notable in this play-by-play’s reference to what happened to Brandon Saenz, who lost an eye to a less-lethal projectile, at 5:40 p.m. on Saturday, May 30. The same is likely true of its recounting of what happened to the machete-wielding man in Victory Park that same night. Also? This draft notes that baking soda and water combine to form an anti-teargas agent — something the earlier draft didn’t seem to realize. Lastly, these notes confirm the use of teargas on the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge on Monday, June 1, which (as covered extensively before) Chief Renee Hall still couldn’t confirm four days later. So, yeah, there are lots of questions as to just how real-time these notes are.
  4. It notes an attempt on DPD’s part to institute a county-wide curfew on Monday, June 1. Thought unsuccessful, this is an interesting note not covered in the rest of the larger, 85-page document.
  5. As with the rest of the report, it’s vague in the areas where you’d want detail and detailed in the areas where no one needs them. Consider, for instance, a scuffle in which teargas was dispensed by law enforcement on Sunday night that was mentioned elsewhere in the report. It’s not brought up in this play-by-play portion.
  6. It makes it clear that Monday, June 1, was by no means the lone time over the course of the weekend in which protesters attempted to take their demonstrations to highways. It does seem to confirm, however, that the “bridge incident” was the only time in which the protesters were arrested for doing so.

Even though it’s filled with typos and indecipherable shorthand — as one might expect of real-time notes, to be fair — it’s worth a scan (if only for the fun fact that this is the part of the report that surprisingly includes the word “Nowitzki” within it).

To that end, we’ve posted this portion of the report — in full and in DPD’s own words, unedited — for your scanning pleasure below.
