Man led by rope says video of arrest made him feel shame

A homeless man who was led by a rope by two officers on horseback in a southeast Texas city, has said he was overcome with shame after watching a video of his arrest. Donald Neely has been arrested nearly 50 times previously, mostly for trespassing. Diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia, he said he hopes the video prompts a conversation about the way police handle mentally ill suspects.

Maybe it's the crime you committed, that lead you to be "roped" that you should feel shame about.

If he feels shame about being arrested maybe he shouldn't have committed a crime?

Criminals should feel shame.

How are they to know someone is mentally ill?

I don't think it matters which way. You're going to be embarrassed if you get arrested maybe the issue isn't the cop but you committing crimes?

LOL. I don't think he should be feeling proud; shame does seem appropriate.

Notice how they feel shame for being arrested, not for the crimes they committed. Cry me a river

I understand the whole tough on crime thing with the right, but this story was indecent and a bad look for cops.
