As a general rule, cops are fairly bright, while criminals are definitely not. But if you rule out stupid as a cause, that leaves a not so subtle racism, and that is not good.

When I seen this on the news I was in shock, disgust and profound embarrassment for our country.

 

How are we ever going to be the "United" States of America?

 

Once again, they use black, mental illness and homelessness to make a mockery of?!

I just finished Underground Railroad yesterday, by Colson Whitehead. With graphic passages of slave hunters and what they did to catch runaway slaves. Seeing that image in the paper yesterday was especially jarring. As if time stood still.

Texas....What Year are We In????

Officers on horseback led a black suspect through the streets by rope. The chief apologized.

 

In a pair of photos, two white lawmen atop horses guide a bound black man with a rope down a wide and empty street. If it weren’t for the cars and pavement, a quick glance may lead to the conclusion that they were colorized plates from the antebellum South.

 

 

Police lead Donald Neely through Galveston, Tex. (KPRC)

But it was Saturday in the island city Galveston, Tex., and officers arrested Donald Neely on suspicion of criminal trespassing. They had horses, and a rope, but no patrol car to take Neely away. The officers attached the blue rope onto his handcuffs, and Neely, 43, was led to a mounted officer staging area.

Bystander photos from the arrest went viral across social media, with many African Americans saying the photos were reminiscent of captured slaves in the 1800s. The outcry prompted an apology on Monday from Galveston Chief Vernon L. Hale III, who called the arrest an “unnecessary embarrassment” for Neely.

 

“I believe our officers showed poor judgment in this instance and could have waited for a transport unit at the location of the arrest,” Hale said in a statement. The officers did not have “malicious intent,” Hale said.

 

The officers trained in the arrest technique for crowd control and other scenarios, Hale said, but the public blowback led the department to rethink how the practice was applied to a sole suspect amid a national discussion about police treatment of African Americans.

 

“We understand the negative perception of this action and believe it is most appropriate to cease the use of this technique,” the department said on Facebook.

 

Neely was freed on bond, the Associated Press reported. He does not have a listed number and could not be reached to comment. His family’s attorney did not immediately respond to a request for comment, but told KPRC that she was appalled by the arrest.

 

“I believe the way they handled him was disgusting,” she said. “The family is offended. The family is upset.”
