Dallas’ spiking murder rate sparks ‘Think Before You Thug’ movement




Former crooks, community leaders and cops have a message to Dallas’ gang members: “Think before you thug.”

City Council member Erik Wilson announced the provocatively named awareness campaign Wednesday at City Hall. Wilson said a recent sharp rise in violent crime and slayings – Dallas had 14 more murders this year as of Monday than the city recorded on the same date last year — prompted the effort.

“This is an important issue,” Wilson said. “One life lost is one life too many.”

The campaign is similar in some ways to the pro-Dallas police campaign Operation Blue Shield, which also pushed a community awareness message. But unlike that campaign, “think before you thug” will not be led by business and political elites, Wilson said.

“This is not a top-down effort,” Wilson said. “This is a bottom-up movement.”

If you don't think the welfare system is designed to promote exactly this, you're fooling yourself.

I think the white cop down front is trying to say, "Shoot me. Please."

Strangely, I don't care if gang members kill each other. As long as they leave the citizens alone.

Not sure if it wasn't initially an unintended side effect, but once realized became an easily exploited convenience. Either way, it's been the intended purpose for the last several decades.

How about - Dont thug or we will shoot you dead and let your body rot in the sun.

Slogans dont change behavior.

Get shot while thuggin.... just one of the many occupational hazards.

How about start charging juvi felony offenders as ADULTS,  instead of letting them out in a few months?  And the few months only comes after multiple felony offenses.   Pathetic.

This is the problem with social media and community oriented policing in modern day.

Tired of the people hired to come up with dumb public relations ideas instead of solve problems.

I say let em shoot each other.  Its only a problem when non thugs get brought into it.
Link Posted: 4/23/2016 8:56:16 AM EDT
Looks like their promoting " kill yo self" before thuging. The universal pointing to head and all.
Link Posted: 4/23/2016 8:56:19 AM EDT
I commend them for trying.

the lifestyle is keeping the numbers in check pretty well IMHO.... see Chicago murder rates as a example.  unfortunately it does occasionally escape the hood and effect honest decent peaceful citizens way too often as well though.

That's it. I have worked with many gang members. They have all brought that issue up to me.  It's the one thing they all wish they had growing up.

Maybe this is a way to get teens to be more aware of surveillance cameras.
