Dallas Mavericks CEO Cynthia Marshall is facing criticism by police officers for her strange and irreverent efforts to unite the community and Dallas Police.
Marshall attempted to bring breakfast to DPD officers earlier today- an effort to recognize the police and civilians killed during the infamous Dallas Police ambush that took place in July of 2016, when five Dallas cops were killed during a protest over the deaths of African-Americans Alton Sterling and Philando Castile.
According to CBS Local, Marshall claimed the two black men died because of their skin color, and that the officers were slain for wearing blue. Her grand plan appeared to involve wearing both black and blue to honor both at once, effectively offending DPD officers who dislike the combination of police deaths and police shootings.
Marshall and 10 of her cohorts were turned away DPD headquarters following a moment of silence that was supposed to usher in a breakfast and $7,250 donation. While Dallas Police did not interrupt the moment of silence outside of the building, the meal and donations (which would have taken place indoors) were politely refused.
Marshall eventually took the food and money to the Boys and Girls Club of Dallas, where the resources were then used.
