On-air in the aftermath of the incident, Dale Hansen of WFAA-TV, said “The one black family [my father] knew were good people; all the others he didn’t know, they were the bad people,” Hansen said. “The ignorance in that reasoning if you think about it long enough will twist your mind and it twisted mine.”
