Dallas police officers have cited drivers for not being able to speak English after least 38 times in the past three years. After these citations were disclosed by the media, Chief David Kunkle insisted that it was a big mistake and that such citations are only appropriate for non-English drivers of commercial vehicles.
Latinos make up 44 percent of the more than 1 million residents in Dallas and nearly 45 percent speak a language other than English.
One of the six officers who wrote these tickets was a stand out with five citations to his credit for non-English drivers.
Kunkle says that he will not even allow tickets for non-English commercial drivers in light of the controversy and will leave that to “other law enforcement agencies.”
