Dallas sheriff releases dashcam video of armored truck chase following shootout at police headquarters
Houston Chronicle
Early Tuesday, the Dallas County Sheriff's Office released two videos of deputies chasing and ultimately stopping an armored truck which led an assault on Dallas police headquarters over the weekend. Police say James Boulware lured officers to his suspicious-looking van outside their headquarters late Saturday, June 12, when he began firing upon them from inside. He then allegedly rammed patrol vehicles before fleeing.

An initial dashboard camera captured an offficer from the sheriff's department deploying "stop sticks" to stop the van just seconds before it came speeding through, just after midnight Sunday morning.

Privately owned armored trucks raise eyebrows after Dallas attack
The New York Times via The Dallas Morning News
As the attack on the Dallas Police Headquarters recently by a man in an armored van that was apparently bought on eBay makes clear — anyone can buy virtually anything online and drive virtually anything on the road. The Ford van in the Dallas attack resembled a vehicle used by the police or money-transporting companies, with gun portholes, armor plating and outer running boards along the sides to stand on. It was one of scores of military and police-style vans, trucks and cars offered for sale on Craigslist and eBay, vehicles the owners defend as novelties that are driven for fun, not for assaults.

Driver's license addresses no longer help police
The Texas Tribune
In years past, a driver's license issued by the state Department of Public Safety was one of the most best tools police had to track down criminal suspects and witnesses, serve warrants or look quickly for next-of-kin when someone was killed. But no more. Blame it on a more mobile, job-hopping culture, both nationwide and in Texas.
