Dallas Police takes jab at Houston

Tweet has since been removed from twitter

DALLAS - Verbal shots have been fired, from the Dallas Police Department, directed at Houston.

All while targeting Dwight Howard, the departments twitter handle posted a questionable "jab" which read:

"@DwightHoward DallasPD invites you to come play with the Dallas Mavericks its safer than Houston."

That tweet shocked many Houstonians and has since been removed from twitter.

Local 2 did some research, and found out the crime rates are actually comparable between the two cities, in the terms of property crimes.

But the numbers are higher in Houston in the terms of violent crimes.
