Hey You Can't Treat Criminals Like Criminals!
Howdy folks and greetings from the Great Plains of North Texas!

I'm sure some of you saw this story because it immediately went viral.  This happened in Galveston, Texas. This guy was charged and arrested, **after repeated warnings,** for criminal trespassing.

The mounted officer's station was 2 blocks away so they escorted him over there on foot. So naturally, when a bystander saw what was going on and posted the images online...well, all hell broke loose.  Activists went ballistic.

What year is this?! ..they screamed. And of course the Galveston police were accused of racism. The officers were actually following department policy and didn't think anything of it. 

If the distance was 2 blocks and they're on horseback, because that's what the Mounted Patrol does, and a car wasn't available or they didn't want to wait on one, what other choices are there?

Since the officers had the lawbreaker's handcuffs attached to a rope, to keep him from running, the activists are saying they had a "leash" on him. lol.  

## Charges of racism of course
James Douglas, the president of Houston’s NAACP chapter, said that the photo shows a lack of respect for the black community and “poor judgment.”

“This is 2019 and not 1819,” he said in an email. “Even though the chief indicated that the technique would be discontinued, he failed to address the lack of respect demonstrated by the officers in the episode.”

The New York City Public Defender wrote: "Officers led him through the streets…on mounted horses. All as though they were slave masters, and he was their slave."

## Criminals should be coddled?
So there you have it. You can't treat lawbreakers like lawbreakers, you have to treat them with the utmost respect.  

Meanwhile police officers are assaulted by being drenched with buckets of water, yelled out, cursed out, pelted with debris, threatened, their families are threatened, called every name in the book and TOTALLY disrespected.

>One of Mrs. J's friends from work(she works in the Criminal Justice system) said she saw a former inmate when she went to Walmart and the inmate saw her. When she came back out her tires were slashed!

## Those heartless Texans!
Well, since it was such a bad look and terrible publicity... that policy has been abolished by the Galveston police.  

>I actually thought it was a great look for Texas. Afterall, this is Texas. 

>We take a hard stance against crime and criminals. If you want to be one, don't do it in Texas or there will be serious consequences. Ever hear of the **Texas Rangers?**

## Signs of the breakdown of society?

It was also interesting that so many people were outraged and saying that the world was becoming lawless and asking how we got to this point that the police would be so disrespectful!

The officers doing their job is now the problem..according to the activists and liberals. **But, the only thing standing between them and total chaos are the laws and law enforcement.**  So I don't know what they want. 

Actually in most cases we could use some justice from 1819. It might send a message that crime doesn't pay.

What do you guys think, was this incident a case of cruel and unusual punishment?

Thanks for reading folks, God bless you all!

Crime in all countries increasingly affects our society. Many people are not aware that this can lead to chaos and civil war.
It is necessary to create new jobs and give the opportunity to receive a decent education to all sectors of society. But instead, country governments spend taxpayer money on military spending.
As a result, there are many homeless people prone to crimes and violations of the law.

Howdy there nilpan! Yes and homelessness is a huge problem for almost all countries too. I don't know where you are but over here the homeless populations are increasing in most cities every year. Thanks so much for reading and commenting!

Howdy Sir @janton, so if you catch a politician that embezzled millions he pulls the race card, by blaming the explorer that discovered the country.
If a white journalist writes any uncomfortable truth, he/she is called a racist.
If a white judge passes a heavy sentence he is called a racist.
What chance then do the cops have.
Blessings!

Howdy sir papilloncharity! yes you guys have the same situation over there where the race card and racism label is constantly used don't you? It's tough for everyone. The officers who are honorable men, like most of the ones in our small town get lumped in with the bad apples that make the news. 

One of your politicians blamed whoever discovered your country for his problems? lol! Politicians are a special breed aren't they?

Well, all cops are bastards, so there ya go. I feel no pity for the pussies who wear a badge and kill/assault/kidnap my fellow citizens. Cops are one of the biggest fucking problems, but there are people like you who are too lazy or weak to defend yourselves, so you think we need them. It’s a sad state of affairs tbh. Honestly, I hope they wrongfully beat or maim you one day, so you can stop the bootlicking. There is nothing honorable about the police or the military here in the U.S. Just a bunch of over-glorified gang members. Get your head out of your ass.

You’re an idiot if you think we’d be in total chaos without laws or law enforcement. Obviously you’ve done no research into alternative forms of government or how they could be achieved, have no idea about private sector security, and are just all around too ignorant to see beyond your narrow minded beliefs. Just another mindless person who thinks that things are fine and thinks that police are any part of the solution. Smh.

I’ll be happy to laugh in your face and say I told you so when we’re all being corralled into cells because we gave our government too much power and they decided to enslave us. :) but hey, more police will solve that issue too, right? Oh wait, no it won’t. They’ll just be “following the law” at that point too. You gonna support them then? Dumbass.

@lookplz While there are bad officers (we jailed some of them here for abuse of an inmate) most are decent and work hard. Here where I live, you will find the Police helping a lot more often than arresting. 

As far as your BS on Conservatives cowering for police protection; I have to say, it is Total crap! I rely on myself, but I also respect the difficult job the police do every day; while they are constantly exposed to vitriol, from people like you.  

You break into my house; you will not survive long enough, to be arrested. Same if you threaten me or mine, as we have a stand your ground law here. Depends on how angry I let you make me, make me real mad, and you won't be lucky enough to be shot!

Might do you a favor at that, beating you to death might be a mercy. Most Anarchists I know can talk a lot, but would Not survive on their own for a month without government help! Always too busy with the hot air, to plan and prepare. 

You ARE entitled to your opinion, even when unsupported by reality. I recommend that you study and prepare, so you can defend yourself, and survive, when the Police become History; and we enter the next Dark age!

@janton, there are always trolls....

They are mostly bad, not mostly good. I admit, there are SOME that are good... but those are the ones who BREAK the law, when the law is wrong. The only good officers are the ones who break laws when they are immoral, not enforce them. So no, a majority of cops are not "hard working and decent" as you claim. First of all, it's stupid to think they "work hard" at all. There is nothing hard about being a cop, the hardest part is having balls and being able to keep your composure. Something most lack, hence the insane amount of deaths against unarmed, innocent people (not even criminals, you dumbass.) that we have been seeing nonstop for years and years now. If you really think they help more than they harass, well then I guess you've had your nice little privilege thus far, so be glad you've been lucky enough to have that, as there are a vast majority of people who don't. Across the board. You think what you think because you're ignorant to the first-hand experiences of having your rights violated and being beaten and arrested when you've done nothing wrong. Until you've gone through that and researched how much it actually happens, you can shut the fuck up as far as I'm concerned. Also, over HALF of police are reportedly spouse abusers, so what do you make of that? Good people? Ha! More like fucking trash. Like most police.

Oh? Is that so? They don't do a hard job, again. Also, you're a dumbass for assuming that I disrespect police. I do not. I understand that it will only complicate things and worsen my situation, as most of them are pussies with badges and a complex that doesn't tolerate disrespect, so they violate your rights and beat you and get away with it, just because they got butthurt and their fragile little egos were attacked. The only people who seek out power, are those who do not deserve it and should not have it. Anyone who seeks power over another person, is a piece of shit, period.

As funny as that sounds, being that I've heard it a million times from a million different places... No. You would not do any harm to me if I were to break in. Not me, personally. IF I were to break in, you would not make it out of bed/off the couch/to the next room/reach your weapon at all. You would be disabled before I even entered. Prepare and plan all you want, but if someone like myself wanted to come after someone like you, you would not survive it. In that matter, consider yourself lucky that I am not and will not be coming after you. You talk about talking big and bad, but you just pushed a whole lot of hot air out of that ass you call a mouth that you keep sticking your foot in. Smh.

The idea that you would beat me to death is also a great one, since you're apparently some old fat fuck. Good luck man, good luck. Ideas and dreams are the only places that will take place.

Would I even be an anarchist if I wasn't able to survive on my own? Do you think that all of a sudden technology, infrastructure, etc.... just all disappears when government does? Are you retarded? LOL. I guess by your stupid logic, when government disappears, so will the roads and the buildings and the water and the air and the plants. Dumbass. It won't be any harder to survive than it is now. Actually, it might even be easier to survive, without that constant slave tax and perpetual inflation going on, that keeps the USD and other currencies on the decline and keeps the slaves working longer hours. I guess you're too stupid to see that though, since you took the time to look dumb in an attempt to tell me off as if you know more than I do, while showing your ignorance by making assumptions about me and showing that you have done no research into how anarchy would even function. You probably think it means absolute chaos, like your stupid ass was indoctrinated to believe when you were young. Never wised up and thought for yourself, perfect little sheep. Easy to farm. Some of us, though, actually cared to look into the positives and negatives of many different types of governmental structures and came to the only logical conclusion we could (since we actually live in reality, unlike you who lives in some fairy fantasy world.) which was that anarchy is the best form of government. I don't believe in no government. I believe in small, self government. Privately organized militaries, protecftion, etc. No requirement to participate, but no shit accepted when it comes to hostility. No forced will upon anyone. Only cooperation. I guess for someone like you, who has to be right all the time and can't accept that he knows too little to truly be speaking on a topic... cooperating is a foreign concept, one that is lost on you.

The only opinion unsupported by reality here, is yours. If the american government and police are so great, why has nothing changed over time? Only gotten worse? Why are people struggling now more than ever, while our government officials make more than ever and work less than ever? Why are police killing more people who are unarmed, elderly, of color, etc... who have done nothing wrong? Why are baby cribs being flashbanged because of police ignorance and error? Why are people being choked to death over selling cigarettes? (cleared of wrongdoing by courts, not just blowing hot air, if you're too stupid to know this shit, then look it up.)

The problem here, is you live in your own little world, where you don't want to see the truth, so you turn a blind eye. You don't research cases, you don't look at statistics, you just blindly talk out of your fat ass and lick the boots of those who enslave you and oppress you. You're too ignorant and too blissful in that ignorance, to open your eyes and be willing to accept the bad. You want to pretend things aren't horrible and in the grand scheme of things, people like you are the fucking problem. People like you allow things like that to go unpunished. People like you make excuses and defend police and government to no end, because you BELIEVE they are here to care about you and do shit to help and defend you. That's where you're detached from reality though. They are not here to help you. They are explicitly here to enforce laws, just or unjust, and the vast majority of them are not capable, but are not removed from their positions. I am not a troll, I am a realist. I am logical. I think in the confines of reality and what is actual, not what could be or might be, like you do. Sure, cops COULD be good, but are they currently? Not a fucking bit.

Evidently being a "victim" is the in thing now. It seems everybody wants to be one. It keeps them from facing the fact that their actions are the reason they are failing in society.

Howdy sk43! yes there are consequences to breaking the law. I don't know where you're located but man, here in Texas they are STRICT. If you ever come through Texas don't get into trouble.  lol. But to your point, yes it's very easy to play the victim card so you can shift the blame. Thanks so much for commenting.

Somehow when I was very young (grade school) I saw two sides to this issue that I think many still miss as adults. Yes, individuals need to be responsible for their actions. However, society needs to be responsible for its actions as well. Texas is a great state if you have some money, but not so great if you are poor. As with many states, the War on Some Drugs decimated many African American communities here. These were already hurt by decades of discrimination (see my other response here for more on that). Texas does a very poor job at providing a social safety net. In Houston, over 50% of the kids are below the poverty level, yet the schools are woefully underfunded. THe grade school our daughters attended had a food and clothing bank and would give food to kids on the weekend and at holidays, because otherwise the kids would have nothing to eat. And to think that this is in a nice suburb of Houston. We have half the police force that we need and the city is constantly in budget crisis. However, because property values are up, Houston has to give school money to other parts of the state. Social responsibility is severely lacking in Texas. I find it very frustrating when I hear people say "why should I care about supporting poor kids, poor people--they are not my kids or my relatives".  You need to care because if they have no other choice they will turn to selling drugs and committing crimes. Keep at it enough and it just becomes their way of life. So yes, lets hold a person who commits a crime accountable, but lets also hold society accountable for creating a system that pushes or allows so many to commit crimes. Clearly, there is a limit to what society can do--there are plenty of stories of wealthy people who also commit crimes, usually through fraud. In some sense though, society plays  a role in that by making it easier for those with money to get away with crimes, by political favors, etc.

I think it looks terrible and they should have known better.   One of the officers could have dismounted and walked the _two blocks_ with the suspect instead of having fun treating him like an animal and leading him on a leash.  Guess that makes me a liberal and an activist, huh?  Damn straight.

In Tulsa the mounted Officers are not allowed to dismount. They can see better on horseback, and are more effective. The cuffs were enough, the leash was a dumb move, because a cuffed man can't outrun a horse...

Here the mounted Officers carry radios, and call for a cruiser to move a perp, even two blocks.

Hey, @janton.

Been turning up the controversy a notch on the old blog, have we? :)

I don't know much about Galveston's police procedure, and I don't know what's supposed to be better (waiting around for a squad car, however long that might take, maybe?), but I do know bad optics when I see it.

I'm not one who believes criminals should be treated with kids gloves. I don't know that the officers should need to walk just because the criminal would have to, nor do I think the criminal should get the horse ride. So, what else is there?

The pendulum has swung in the direction of identity, be it race, gender, sexual orientation, or based on something else. If the identity makeup is not in your favor, I guess this is what happens, regardless of who is the criminal and who is not.

That said, law enforcement in this day and age should be thinking about how things look, because others are. And they're on the spot with camera phone in hand to upload to social media.

And I wonder. Do these police officers ever arrest people who are not black, hispanic, or some other ethnic minority? Do they ever walk a white person like this a couple of blocks to the station? What would be the ratio? It can't be racism if it's race neutral—where all instances have followed the same protocol. I don't think we'll get that information, and even if we did, I don't think anyone is going to care because, as stated, this is 2019.

lol! Howdy sir Glen! I just like to post about things that I find interesting and yes sometimes controversial! lol. I try not to make boring posts but I don't always succeed.

Yes, you are exactly right. It's a tough job for the officers. The ones I know from our small town are honorable men but there's been so much air time for the bad apples that they get lumped in together. 

Well, this incident made them change their policy so that's a good thing for optics. I have to assume they treat everyone that way if it's policy. Or was policy. I never thought about how mounted officers transfer people, now we know how they USED to do it!

Hey, @smithlabs.

re: MSM agenda

No, it does not. It's funny how things can go to the opposite extreme. Martin Luther King, Jr said he longed for a day where he and everyone else could be judged by the content of their character and not the color of their skin. Instead of that happening fifty or so years on, the pendulum has merely been swinging to the other extreme, where another color is now responsible for all of society's ills.

Funny thing is, if you look at the make up of the media, the entertainment business, the educational system, corporations and the governments, any organization that might be prone to give voice to "that's racist", it's going to be mainly comprised of white people, simply because over the length and breadth of this country, white people are still in the majority. So, basically, those of us who are white are in effect helping those who are not to call ourselves racists.

I go back to the picture of the fight that broke out between ANTIFA and the group termed as White Supremacists a couple of years ago and if you look really hard, it's still difficult to find more than one or two people of color among all the white folk pounding on each other. :)

I know I don't need to tell you this, but we can't even get the wording right when we say "that's racist." I'll do it anyway, for the good of the order. Skin color is not a race. Mexican is not a race. And scientists are still debating if race exists, let alone how many there might be, which the last time I looked, was between 3 to potentially 10 or more.

I think other people identify me more as a middle aged, white, heterosexual male than I do. :) I don't feel the need to announce who I am, what I do, or how bigoted or racist everyone else is. I don't think others need to, either. I don't really need to know how they self-identify, nor do I really care. It's live and let live. As long as I'm not infringing on anyone's rights, and their not treading on mine, we're good. I just try to do what I think is best, learn from my mistakes, apologize and provide restitution when possible (aka repentance) and try not to burn bridges along the way. :)

Ignorance is rampant, if this Man were considered  property, the restraints would have been one his neck. 

IF THE arrested Man had not been trespassing and refused to leave when ordered, he would not have been cuffed! They would have arrested ANY Man in the same circumstance! 

This actually had Nothing to do with his skin color, and everything to do with poor decisions....

The officer acted properly, and professtionally!

Well the chief said they were following departmental policy so I agree that this must have been a common method for mounted officers. But the optics made it too easy to call out racism. That's the political climate today, pretty toxic. 

I agree, that this would be the consequence of anyone that they arrested, I don't think it had anything to do with race.

Everyone is so damn ready to be offended these days! Intent should be (but is NOT) included on any claims against anyone else, Including the Police....

Here, they would have called a car. BUT he would have gone to Jail here too!

Possibly a photo taken at a right timing to cause the chaos...and the internet loves chaos. That's what makes it slightly self-contracting, humans should prefer a slightly calm and fun place, but the internet which is totally constructed by humans really love chaos.

Howdy lilacse!  I agree that the internet loves chaos and controversy and sensationalizes things that never would have been noticed hardly. I think that's what happened here, I think these guys were out doing a routine action and could not have dreamed it would be a huge, world-wide story!  You are so right. Thanks so much for commenting!

A few months back there was a guy here who killed his girlfriend then once located  led the police on a chase down a highway after him, he crashed then got out running across the highway while exchanging gun fire with the police, one cop in a cruiser coming upon the scene decided to take his cruiser and run the guy down, the guy went flying through the air...he suffered a whole lot of skin abrasions but in my opinion if he had been a minority instead of white all hell would have broke loose.  Just as in my opinion if this man had been white led for two blocks attached with a rope it'd never got a mention.

Holy smokes! Wow sunlit7 thanks for sharing that. Yes unfortunately I agree, that case would have been easy to portray as excessive police force against a black man if he'd been black. That was one dangerous guy though and needed to be stopped by whatever means necessary. I'm so glad the guy wasn't black!

Howdy redheadpei!  Well in much of the country now the criminals have more rights than the victims.  Makes me wonder what it will look like in another ten or twenty years.  

I would LOVE to know the answer to your question!  Would anything have been said if the man was white? ...not by the black activists, which I don't blame them.  I think it still would have gotten criticism but just from whites and not as much since it couldn't be portrayed as racist. which I don't think it was since it was standard policy.

Good that you have shed light on this action in a state known to be perhaps hard on black folks. Society is in a state of decay, civilization is not very civilized. it may be getting worse as the recession hits in coming days.

Howdy julianhorack! You are so right that society is in a state of decay and I hate to see it happening. I know your country is going through alot these days. Are you saying a world-wide recession is going to hit?

Hey there Sir Janton. Yes a worldwide recession is being predicted in the coming months if not days. Already happening apparently bit by bit here and there. I'm no expert, just finding reports online. It could be sensationalist of course, but there is slowdown in the main economies of America, China and EU. A recession is usual in the cyclic nature of the global economy, and the downturn is overdue, since the last one in 2008.

Good to know you are aware of the situation in my part of the world too, you read some posts. It has always been a delicate situation here socially and economically, so nothing too unusual. But presently things seem more delicate than usual. Foreign nationals from other African nations have kind of taken over run down areas of Johannesburg, the big city of commerce in the north, and sell contraband goods. The police had a street battle with them this week to reclaim the area and found a large stash of weapons and ammo, arresting 800 mostly illegals who flood over the border constantly. 

In one incident, your post here makes me think of it now, the local police tied a foreign national to the back of their van and dragged him a little distance, more to frighten him I think, which makes your mounted police story look quite tame. He might have actually been killed later in prison before trial. So it is savage here in the south of Africa.

Your post here did very well, in that it inspired a lot of debate over a captivating topic, pun intended lol.

Howdy brittandjosie!  yes, it looked terrible for the world to see, it was a look that only a Texan would find normal, just because we are rooted in our Western heritage but not even the rest of America could comprehend this, let alone the world so the policy had to change.

It would definitely be embarrassing and it is unusual, but I don't think it is cruel.

If I was the police, I would have called for a car. It looks like a bad Halloween stunt to be honest.

The problem is we are living in a world where feelings and emotions are becoming more important than facts and logic. Since these are descriptions entirely up to the concerned individual, it presents a unique challenge to enforce or judge on. We have to focus on the motives and intentions not the image and perception. Suspect did crime was arrested according to procedure by police.

It seems the group is more important than the individual and this will encourage people to see an us vs. them.

It doesn't matter that it wasn't cruel to the individual, however the racial perception of group power relations white cops black man is cruel and brutal.

This sort of thinking will not lead to good things. We are on a pathway to extremism.

Amazing people always only see what they want to see, if that was a white man being led down the road no one would have photographed it, it is not sensational reporting!

World has gone crazy, they wish to be safe, however everyone has to be Politically Correct all the time! 

Teachers, Paramedics, Firemen, Police are expected to carry out their duties, even a gunpoint, being high-jacked, robbed on call-outs, yes it is a questionable world we live in.

Howdy joanstewart! Great points you made. I know some local officers from our small town and they have a very tough job and much of it is because of bad publicity even though they work their tails off to help keep our community safe. 

Yes, from what I understand the Galveston police have been operating this way forever and this was just a routine thing but the optics are terrible because the man was black, hopefully they treat everyone the same. It should give the critics some satisfaction that the policy is changed now. Thanks so much for commenting!

Good point Joan, the situation in the south of Africa puts the lives of the paramedics, etc at risk of hijack and robbery every time they go into a ghetto area. The army have now been deployed to patrol the streets of the Cape Town gang-infested suburbs, which is not ideal. But it was the last hope, where locals are being shot and killed daily in gang violence.

They actually have them in a lot of areas, @enjar. Mostly in cities, believe it or not. Washington, DC has them,  as does NYC... it give them more height and visibility. 

Plus they don't get caught in traffic, hence the added use of cops on bikes.

Exactly. Thanks dswigle for the excellent explanation! It IS a strange site in NYC but they still have a good sized force of mounted police there. And the people love the horses. I don't know what they do about the "stuff" the horses leave behind though!

Howdy enjar! Well dswigle gave a great answer and I thank her for that. Yes, mostly in cities because they are 8 to 10 feet up so they have the view and they don't get stuck in a traffic jam. Plus if someone tries to run from them it's pretty hard to outrun a horse! But I'm sure in NYC they wait for a car to pick up a suspect and not walk them down the street like in Texas..or like they USED to do in Texas. I love the Old West look in Texas because of the cowboy hats but I'm an old cowboy.

Thank you sir krazzytrukker! At this point we are still a nation of laws and there should be some serious consequences for being a criminal, especially if you do harm to others. Texas is hard on crime. Texas is changing though with all the people from New York and California moving in so in ten years I reckon we'll significantly soften our stance.

Reminds me of a conversation with my mother about 30 years ago. She was an administrator at the university I attended and more and more black students were being admitted.  The conversation when something like this:

>These black students:  they are so scruffy and dirty.

My response:

>Mum, if you put those same clothes on a white student, what would you see?

She never made the remark again, bless her.

Howdy fionasfavourites!  Oh I hate any kind of racism and the reason the photo looked so bad was the black man but since this was a routine action apparently...because it was departmental policy...I hope that race had nothing to do with it.  Either way the practice is over and that's good for public perception at least. 

I know our local police officers are excellent and are not racist, many of them are black. I love that you made your Mum think, that was really good! Bless her heart and bless you too. Thanks so much for commenting!

It's always about the optics and agreed, not good for public perceptions.  Glad it'll never be done again.

Obviously, nobody has met the County Sherrif in Maricopa, Arizona!

> Joe Arpaio would never be confused with any Nancy-boy bleeding heart lawman, no sir.

> The man who began his professional second act in the early 1990s as the Maricopa County, Arizona, sheriff endeared himself to voters by not coddling thugs and criminals.

> The former Drug Enforcement Agency agent made inmates sleep outdoors in tents, wear pink underwear and work on chain gangs. He served them two meals a day, which sometimes included in-date but green baloney sandwiches.

> He said he wanted to make jail an inhospitable place so that criminals would never want to come back.

> But Arizona voters just sent the long-time lawman packing after 24 years. 

And so, even though he was doing what he thought would turn around crime, his actions were not humane enough and the let Joe go.

Howdy dswigle! yes I followed his career for years until he finally got defeated.  I think he made a big impact in his county. I did think about him when I saw this photo!  I was thinking "this is NOTHING compared to Joe Arpaio!" He was a throw back to the more traditional tough Sheriff of the Old West. 

Well, that's been the Texas style too but it's changing like everything else. Thanks so much for commenting and for the tip!

Howdy Jonboy!

I saw this story, put in the context of awful racist police of course.  I enjoyed your post clearing it up.  It seems like the police did the right thing here in my opinion.  

I used to be a big law enforcement supporter, but my views have changed.  My personal bias is against the police these days.  I don't use drugs, and I don't associate with people who do, but I can see that the drug war has been won by drugs and has caused devastation mostly due to the efforts of police, and DEA agents.  Asset forfeiture laws are a disgrace to a free people.  Since 9/11 the police have become increasingly militarized to fight a largely imaginary foe.  Now they are pushing red flag laws that will strip Americans of the last true freedom we have, the right to bear arms.  I don't agree with Black Lives Matter, but I'll side with them on taking the cops down a peg or two.

Howdy sir optout!  Oh I agree about the assault going on and the unConstitutional Red Flag laws which are really scary.  I agree about everything you said, the militarization is alarming. I only know that our local police and the officers I know are very honorable family men who word their tails off to help keep the community safe. 

But I can's speak for the large cities, that's looking scary. The marijuana laws have been ludicrous but at least that's changing. Our prisons are overflowing!

You're right.  I'm blessed with outstanding local police.  They are human and make mistakes, but they are not jackbooted thugs at all.  We have some really outstanding Sheriff's and Deputies in Wyoming.  I am concerned when I hear stories such as the one about the cop that was planting meth on traffic stop victims for years before he was caught.  They think he put hundreds of people in prison unjustly.  Here in Wyoming we also had a Highway Patrolman who tried to rob and murder a truck driver during a traffic stop.  That of course was hushed up pretty quickly.  I know most police are good and there are just a few bad apples, but it is frustrating that the good apples are so quick to cover for the bad apples and prevent justice from being served.  That old joke, "We investigated ourselves thoroughly and found no wrongdoing."  applies to more and more police departments these days.

It'a appalling, and yet it's the mindset being handed down as acceptable to the masses, and I fear there is worse to come. Perhaps when the end of the year comes and Bernie and Corbyn are in power then this will change

Howdy ireenchew!  Exactly. The officers I know in our small town are very dedicated to helping people and they work their tails off to make the community safe but they are hated by many because of all the publicity that a few bad apples have gotten. They are in a very tough position. But I can't speak for the big city police departments. Thanks so much for your comment!

Howdy blueeyes8960!  lol...yes I wasn't trying to upset anyone, I just thought it was an interesting incident. Since the officers were following policy this might have been a routine thing everyday! I think it would only work in Texas with our Western heritage but I know it looks bad to the rest of the world. The policy is changed now so that should make people feel better. Thanks so much for commmenting!

A very good friend of mine has a brother that is incarcerated, everytime he gets released, he moves in with his mother for a couple months, after she gets tired of his bullshit, he goes back to stealing cars until he gets caught so he can get back into prison. His mom is dead now, so I doubt he'll get released again. It's all he knows.

oh no! That is sad, what a way to live. But at least he knows he can make it in prison. I know a few people who are in and out and it's just their lifestyle, they don't seem to mind it. Thanks so much sir wonderwop.

That would be a pretty unique arresting experience. Always makes me laugh when the Internet goes nuts. Like anyone in real life will actually care what is said by keyboard warriors! Just switch the TV or browser off and walk outside. 

So are you changing your career path from Lord Fluffton to Lord Anchorton now?

@janton ·
lol! howdy sir nickyhavey!  I just thought it was an interesting article with an Old West justice look to it! I really did. I wasn't trying to upset anyone. Europeans don't understand many things about America, and America as a whole doesn't understand some things about Texas! lol.. So thank you for your very non-condemning, non-judgemental comment. 

I really enjoy the great variety of viewpoints that we can gather on Steemit though, it's fascinating. I don't think I'll be changing my career path but I'm not sure how the hardfork will work out. Some people are saying they will post much less so that may be a trend.  

I know, maybe I can come up with a Controversy of the Day post! You know, so people will have something to curate if no one else is going to be posting.  lol.

I'll see how it goes after the hard fork but with all the communities and tribes that are forming with their own curation reward percentages then why would you stop posting? I think I'm earning even more since they started (although everything is staked that I'm interested in) and I have been on a mission to get as much steem in from posts as possible with the daily music post and occasional travel blog - #teamfluff

Will you keep posting? You will have about 4k steem soon? That will give you some nice curation rewards? $0.04 per 100% upvote?

Would it still be profitable to delegate to bidbots or actually curate yourself? I wonder what the threshold is of curation rewards with your own SP vs delegating to ocdb for example.

I had around 1400SP that was getting me 0.03 steem per week in curation. With ocdb delegation I'm getting between 0.4-0.6 STEEM per DAY! so I'm thinking...never lol

As I see it, one of the big problems we have as a society is to judge without being judges, because that's why there are these accusations, the color of the skin I think is the least when it comes to a delinquent, because if it is being carried by two cops the way they do, it must be for some reason. But it's easier to make some stupid comment before you at least take the trouble to find out the reason for the action. I think that's where we're doing it wrong!

Apparently, the Galveston police chief agreed the officers exercised poor judgement in this case.

I had seen this photo when it was first shown and thought long and hard about it. I believe that police here had no ill-intentions, however, they still made a big mistake and I am glad to see that this practice is ending. I will be honest, my gut dropped when I saw it, especially when learning that it was recent. This image is disturbing for several reasons. First, it reminds us of our country's unconscionable past of promoting and even fighting for slavery. This past is still with us today, in large part because even after emancipation, many in the US, including in government continued to discriminate against  African Americans. For example, the National Housing Act of 1934 explicitly discriminated against African American communities and African Americans. Later, when African American veterans tried to use the GI Bill, realtors discriminated against them. Banks would not loan to people living in African American communities. This resulted in the terrible conditions of inner city slums. Of course, many blamed African Americans for this outcome, but it was really discrimination by those in power. Some of this discrimination continues, though now it is often directed at anyone who is poor (you know, they must be lazy, right?)

The second reason for the outcry over this image is due to Trump's divisive, hate-filled speech that is usually directed at "others" typically with dark skin, or anyone he can vilify to satisfy his base who seem incapable of separating fact from fiction. I have to honestly say that this is the first time in my 50+ years on this planet that I am truly ashamed to be an American. Our ideals are much higher than the photo above, much higher than Trump's hateful rhetoric, and the chants of those at his rallies.  Yet it is clear that Trump is just a symptom and that 
that symptom has revealed that our racist past is still present in a rather large percentage of people today. We really have not come that far in the last 200 years.

In this context, the image above is indeed disturbing. And wanting 1819 justice is regressive thinking that fits the kind of hate-filled speech that Trump encourages. As a citizen of the world, the US (and a Texan) it saddens me to see the state that we are in.

Howdy sir toddrjohnson!  Thanks so much for your wonderful comment, it's excellent. I agree with you and I too have studied the discrimination against blacks and the fight to keep them from buying homes etc. It's shameful and sickening.

In regards to my post, I had nothing in mind like what has been caused by it. I just threw something together real fast because I didn't have anything to post about and I saw this article which was interesting. I liked the Old West look of it because I'm and Old West writer. That's what my blog is about, telling stories about the American Wild West. 

I never thought about race or anything and the last thing I would ever want to do is cause offense or controversy or to upset anyone. My blog is simply entertainment and hopefully sneak in some history lessons and some laughs.

I thought only my few readers would see this and they know me and get my sense of humor, I never dreamed that steemitbloggers would resteem it. In fact, I figured they wouldn't touch this one with a ten foot pole! lol. 

So if I knew that was going to happen I never would have mentioned the 1819 comment, that was in reference to my blog about the Wild West in the 1800's and my readers know my tongue-in-cheek, dry sense of humor.

In fact, if I knew this was going to be picked up and read by so many people, I never would have posted it at all!

Thank you sir so much for your thoughtful and well written comment!

Hi janton, this is a most contentious post of yours, where there just has to be 2 sides to the argument.   Of course the police need respect but public scrutiny is not such a bad thing either to make sure that people get a fair go because in some instances they do not.  

There it is out --- a great post to write janton.

All I can say is that I am very impressed with the respectful and thoughtful conversation that has followed your post, @janton. Some of us will agree and some of us will disagree with your assessment, but regardless, we can discuss our thoughts and ideas in a way that doesn’t indicate there is only one right answer and anyone who thinks differently has a brain the size of a pea. That would not have accomplished a thing!

At the end of the day, I think it all comes back to this: perception. When I saw the picture of the officers riding a horse, I think it was cool mainly because it would really be easier for them to pursue offenders in "tight" corners which might not be accessible by car.

Looking at the picture and, I am just wondering, will this same people be yelling injustice, racism and whatnots if the arrested person came from a white background?

 I understand that it was necessary to ensure that the offender will not run away- thus the rope and the handcuffs were there.

Howdy nurseanne84!  You are SO logical! lol. I love that. Yes, the rope was just to keep him from running away, it was tied to his handcuffs, it wasn't a leash.  We would not have heard from activists about this if it had been a white suspect, but like you said it's all about perception and you could not have designed a more inflamatory image! lol. It was just business as usual for the officers I'm sure, I'm sure they weren't mean racists but the optics fueled alot of outrage. 

I never would have posted about it if I knew it was going to upset so many people! I just thought it was an interesting story and one that would not fit that look anywhere in the world except Texas because of our Western cowboy heritage. Thanks so much for commenting!

As they say a picture is worth a 1000 words.  In 100 years all there will be is the picture no one will care what actually happened.  It looks bad. However there is always a story.  People are too quick to judge too. So many are just looking for more reasons to justify their anger. 


I think it's a perfectly Texan thing to do 😜. It has a rationale to it and I can see why no one at the time thought anything of it. I bet they even asked him if he minded the walk rather than sitting out the in the heat waiting for a car.   I completely agree that most criminals are coddled.  

 When people contemplate going to jail vs. getting a job you have to start to look at the problems.  Yes there is the drawback of being locked up and not being able to be on your computer all day or going out.  Having your toilet where everyone can see you and of course the idiot who has the be the bad ass. It isn't great.  When you get free work out facility, 3 square meals a day, a bed, air conditioning and heating, cable television (and get a say in what you watch), access to school and college oh yeah don't forget full medical, dental and vision coverage, it does make you wonder which way is the 'right' way.

Howdy tryskele! You are so right. Yes, Texas is the only place in the world, including the United States, that this would look normal and I'd love to hear an interview of the two officers. You are so right about the heat too. I love the logic. 

Couldn't be more accurate in your last paragraph. The victims of crimes are often left devasted emotionally and financially but we spend a fortune on the criminals and take care of their every need. Except privacy. 

Great point about which was is better. For people who have nothing, prison and jail is much better many times.
Mrs. J. works in the criminal justice system so I'm very familiar. lol. If I knew this post was going to upset so many people I never would have posted it!

I think you did the right thing. Nothing wrong with 'stirring the pot' a little 😜 and provoking conversation. If we don't start talking about all of this, somewhere, it is going to get worse and it's horrible now. I don't think anyone should be afraid of addressing situations, especially on this platform. Sadly, many who would rant and take issue with the post are the ones who would be upset at a bully, but they don't see that is what they are doing. Their 'ideals' were hurt so now they think they have a reason to lash and be mean to you who  only presented what happened. 

You are a great storyteller. Not many like you as you can see. You have brought history alive. You inform you don't tell people what to think, you don't push an 'agenda' you present the facts and let each decide for themselves. This time it provoked something a little emotional. To me, you did exactly what I have come to expect from you. So don't ever regret posting something because some feel the need to push their ideals. 

Poor Mrs. J  I feel for her, that has to be rough. My brother was a prison guard in New Mexico before becoming a police officer, oh the stories I heard. 🙄
 
You're welcome for the comment. I like our little chats. Glad I didn't sound like I was nuts LOL.

There are a lot of different ways to view this one... More than enough to write a book on.

There's the optics, history (recent and not-so-recent), double-standards, racism, societal inequality... Lots going on there. 

In this situation, it would have been wiser to have one officer hold the reigns while the other walked the guy. Of course, if the criminal were white, people would have cheered the same image and that's racism, too.

lol! Well there is only one place in the world where this would look normal and that's Texas but the problem is like you said, the image went all over so all hell broke loose. Well the policy is changed now so no one will be offended by this sight anymore. social media can make you or break you in one day!
