  1. Wow! They couldn't call for a police car? They knew what the backlash would be and did it anyway. A procedure that should have been banned long before this incident?

  2. "When they dragged donald neely down that rope by horses and rope, it was like they were calling our community down the road" — its not like everyone in the town doesnt already know its wrong!!!

  3. That' was all uncalled for and the officer's should be treated the same way but some things 😉 just don't change leave the past when it belongs God forgives us amen

  4. Sickening! this looks like a lynching in progress.why have I never seen a white person roped and cuffed this way? how demonic!

  5. Mounted officers do this to White people as well. Is the suggestion, then, that White people are like slaves? If you look for signs of racism, you will find it something as benign as a white piece of copy paper. You people are nuts. Shame on this police chief for not defending his officers. The perp was arrested trespassing. They were walking him back to an area where they could transport him for processing. It is nothing more than this. Those cops could’ve been any color.

  6. How is that racist. They're on horses and the jail was probably a block away. would it be a big deal if he was white? Bunch of snowflakes in America nowadays.

  7. What? They should have given him a ride? Do whites get the same treatment. We need more info before being outraged.

  8. There were other ways they could have handled this. This was mean in many cases. People don't stop to think anymore. They just do what they want. It was wrong to treat him like that. Should have shown more respect. 🤔

  9. “They treated my brother like he was a dog”

    All who brake the law are dogs. There would be no outrage if the guy was white, Hispanic, or Asian.

  10. Dragging down the road? What video are they watching?
    Ok they will change the policy, good.
    Notice, the officers were on horseback. They did not have a squad car so no back seat.
    Notice, they did not abuse him. They walked him to a staging area.
    Next time they’ll place him on the animal and give him a horsey ride to jail, then everybody will be happy.

  11. So, they arrested a man for trespassing? Whats the big deal here exactly? Its a bit unusual looking sure but are you really gonna drag out a car for a 2 block journey when theres horses handy?

  12. Standard procedure. What are they going to do leave their horses.
    He wasn't "dragged", he was walked.
    he wasn't abused at all!
    If it were a white male in the same situation no one would have turned an eye.
    The SAME EXACT procedure that has been used on ALL races that have been placed under arrest by the mounted police unit!
    WAKE UP YOU SENSITIVE SNOWFLAKES!

  13. How does leading someone around by rope get to be part of police training? and how does this dudes brother stay homeless?

  14. THE SEED OF SATAN RIDES AGAIN……It is very easy to recognize the seed of Satan when you see them, they carry the same evil nature as their racist vile forefathers, this is how they treat mentally ill African Americans whom they have oppressed and violated for eons. they carry the spirit of Cain within them an evil doer by nature and the very seed of satan himself they are always constantly proving God right. IT IS GOOD THAT THE WICKED ARE BEING REVEALED IN THESE LAST DAYS.

  15. This is do racially insensitive in these troubled times of race relations in America. Are we trying to mend race relations or add fuel to it? How would it look if it was a black officer with a white male at the end of that rope?
    Woe is America on racial issues. Please do keep trying and perhaps someday all people will be treated equally, no matter their skin color.

    As has already been said in this forum, the officers could have waiting for proper transportation. Suppose the horse is spooked and gallop off will the officer release his grip on the rope? I doubt it. Imagine then in his attempt to maintain control of the suspect he drags the suspect along. Think people think. Safety FIRST. This look is most inclined to remind Blacks of those slavery days videos and photos of their ancestors. My Goodness!

  16. 🗣️ It's not as bad as it looks..but it looks pretty bad to me. Optics should not matter all the time, but optics tell a large part of the story. 👁️

  17. The should have waited for a car, even if the guy was OK with it its painting a picture of the rotten past. I was livid with anger when I saw this so can image any one of colour been outraged, I'd even be outraged by it happening to anyone it just looks inhuman like parading someone down the street so everyone can see and humiliate another..

  18. If he was white he'll been put in a car …. That's why this country is going to be divided too many racist non lawful people in this country against people who want justice for all…. Ain't no police arresting me at all ..ARREST YOURSELVES…

  19. His family had been looking for him he has mental disorder and if they would’ve put him in a car then they would still be praying to know he is okay….

    It’s a smile story!

    All about your perception and nobody likes a negative Nancy you’re bringing the country down

  20. Color is not the issue we are close to 2020 not the 1800s sir. lol I
    guarantee 99% states and cities within gives police departments funds.
    Its simple if you on horse back, motorcycles, or bikes. When you arrest a
    person they could have detained that person right there and had a
    patrol car dispatch to the location for pickup. I find human beings
    funny they will stretch there imagination to make a unethical situation
    ethical. SMH This why I disagree with self policy creation its call
    conflict of interest like the congress giving themselves a raise. Its
    called unethical. SMH

  23. haha, "We stand with Donald". For some reason a guy you stand for "with mental ilness" was homeless on the street. Can cops do more of this "racist" stuff to the homeless people, so that SWJs finally do somthing productive and take care of ALL of them not just Donald.

  24. Just race hustlers trying to invent a crisis for cash. His absent family now pretend to be caring and all concerned. Laughable.

  25. He was homeless. After this he's now living with his sister . Why wasn't he living with his sister before. Because he will be getting a large cash settlement

  26. What would be said if the scenario played out with 2 black cops and 1 white suspect led by a rope to be arrested. …I know, it's hard to imagine right, that's because it's racist!

  27. THIS is why KLAN COPS need to be banned from interacting with Black Americans. We need our own police force.. this is INEXCUSIBLE and disgusting to see how white males have this SLAVE FETISH.
