Dallas Police Chief David Brown lost his son, former partner and brother to violence

This is painful.

The face of this tragedy has had so much tragedy in his own life you wonder how he can do this without breaking down.

"Few people understand loss better than David Brown, the Dallas police chief who stood before television cameras Friday morning and said, “We are heartbroken.”

Even before five police officers were killed Thursday at the site of a Black Lives Matter protest where seven other people were wounded, Brown had become intimate with loss, pummeled by it again and again in his career and personal life.

Before this week, violence had already taken from him a former partner, a brother, a son."
