A Dallas Observer investigation "deals with disturbing allegations of widespread police corruption made by a former Dallas Police Department (DPD) officer." The author, a Dallas-based lawyer, details the corrupt story of the patrol officer Daniel Maples who has turned himself in to the police and has claimed being "part of a "ring" of dirty cops run by another officer, Quentis Roper Jr." To back up his claims, the officer has brought $ 49,000 in cash and has said it is 'his cut of what he, Roper and other cops" have stolen from arrested drug dealers. The two-part series examines Maples' allegations and shows that "for a variety of political, budgetary and personality-based reasons, the DPD was more interested in hushing this up than in fully investigating Maples' story."
