Demonstrators target DISD superintendent's home, but ordinance keeps them at a distance

 
From staff writer Claire Wiseman:
When a dozen demonstrators gathered at the corner of Hockaday and Snow White drives Saturday morning, they thought they'd be allowed closer to DISD Superintendent Mike Miles, the target of their protest.
"We had no idea that we would not be able to protest in front of his house," organizer Joyce Foreman said.
But a city ordinance kept them on the sidewalk next to Amy and Scott Sample's home. Amy Sample only understood the noise outside after entering "DISD protest" into a Google search.
"We were just watching out the window, trying to figure out what was going on," she said. "We didn't know that it was planned."
The group assembled about 9:45 a.m. and were met by Dallas police, who informed them they'd have to stay on a strip of sidewalk on Snow White Drive.
Because Hockaday Drive doesn't have public sidewalks, that area provided the closest strip of public land
