Alleged criminal Donald Neely was lead through the street Saturday by an officer on horseback. Charged with criminal trespassing, people were quick to point to race as an issue, with the sheriff’s office admitting it was ’poor judgment’.
Okay so a pair of guys who did their jobs and did not violate department policy won’t be criminally charged congrats we live in a normal world
Face criminal charges for what? Would anybody cared if they did that to a white guy?
well i sure hope they wont face charges for not committing a crime and doing their jobs as expected of them
Wait...was it actually attempted to bring them up on charges? 😆 The department mus''ve had a good laugh from that one! Bahahahaaa!
I know it looks bad but it's proper proceidger. Also, you don't get to lead a criminal on horse back lookin like a fuckin cowboy every day so frankly i can't blame him.
"Officers who didn't commit crime won't be charged for imaginary offense"
Fixed the title.
Why do we need to know the race? Trying to get brownie points I see.
And what would he be charged for exactly? Bad PR?
This is bullshit if you Google the images. He didnt drag him, he just had the horse walk him to the police station. They make it sound as if they tied a rope around his neck and ran off in a circle.
If they was really racist they would’ve thrown the man over the back of the horse hog-tied.
Once again the guardian proves they’re racist trash.
This is good and as it should be. However, it would be nice if the department could figure out something better than leading people with a rope regardless of race.
Couldn’t they have used a cage on a cart that’s pulled by horses. That would be funny.
Black people do not have special rights that put them above white's. or anyone else for that matter.
the only other choice would be to get off the horse and walk on the ground while controlling the horse and the suspect. my guess would be it's safer for everyone to keep a distance from the suspect and the horse. the horse can possibly step on the suspect. this type of arrest has been done hundreds of times, to all types of people.
End white hatred
If the media had their way, they wouldn’t charge the criminal either.
they should be glad that a black man's balls were saved.
“Showed Poor Judgement” but not illegal, I think that accurately describes the events, nothing done was illegal, but could have been a questionable decision by the officer
