Dallas Police Chief David Brown gave what many are calling a moving and historic speech at the Dallas police memorial to five fallen members of his force. Brown’s words – which even included reciting Stevie Wonder – moved the audience, including a president and former president, to its feet.
“Calm at the center of crisis,” The New York Times said of Brown. On social media, the praise was equally strong, with one woman compared Brown to a modern Martin Luther King Jr.
