A Dallas police chief apparently decided that simply firing his officers for poor behavior wasn’t enough — he needed to publicly shame them.

David O. Brown took to Twitter and Facebook on Dec. 30 to explain why he was terminating five of his officers and demoting another.

“I have terminated 911 Call Taker Moises Limon today for driving while under the influence and not reporting his arrest to his supervisor,” the chief tweeted.

“I have terminated SC Frank Della for public intoxication, damaging a person’s property, and making offensive contact with a person,” he added in a long series of tweets.

“I have terminated SC William Wesley for his involvement in a domestic disturbance which resulted in a police response… I have terminated Sgt. Rafael Rodriguez for his involvement in a domestic disturbance which resulted in a police response… I have terminated SC Amy Wilburn today for firing her weapon upon an unarmed person without fear or justification… I have demoted SC Reynolds for failing to aid a fellow officer who was nearby requesting help with a combative prisoner.”

On Facebook, the Dallas Police Department got even more specific, giving detailed descriptions of each incident on its website.

Mr. Brown reportedly did the same thing back in 2013 when he fired 27 employees, Gawker said.
