You’d think if a guy spent 40 years as a law enforcement officer in Dallas and Irving, he’d have some pretty interesting stories to tell. But if the video clips on his campaign Web site are any indication, Lowell Cannaday has had the most boring career of any cop who’s ever lived.
In the above clip titled “The Riot That Didn’t Happen,“ Cannaday recalls a potential riot in Dallas involving members of the KKK and the Black Panthers that, well, didn’t happen because it was too cold that day. Wow! In “The Butcher Knife,“ Cannaday recalls how a guy once ran toward his patrol car with a butcher knife. Cannaday jumped out and drew his weapon, but it turned out the guy was just worried about Cannaday’s safety after he pulled somebody over. Crazy! Then there’s the touching “Abandoned Children,“ where Cannaday tells about how he once found some abandoned kids in an apartment that smelled really bad. But get this: One of the kids was eating raw flour! You’re kidding me, right Lowell?
I admit I don’t know a lot about Cannaday, the 70-year-old former Irving police chief who will face Dallas County Sheriff Lupe Valdez in the November election. Here’s one thing I do know: He’s a member of First Baptist Church in Dallas, according to this article from The Dallas Morning News. In case you didn’t know, First Baptist is where this guy is pastor. Now that’s a scary story!
