  1. I know its standard procedure, but you could have just called in a transport unit or something. Probably embarasing for both the man who was arrested & the officers too.

  2. These idiot cops must think they’re badass due to riding horses and wearing cowboy hats. In reality, they’re spineless cowards

    Fire them

  3. They knew exactly what they were doing and wanted to get national attention.

  4. So what's the difference between a horse and a car?

  5. These cops are complete, unmitigated, morons. I'm a life-long Texan. Yep, that's the brand of idiots we've had as "police" since I can remember (61 years old).

  6. From homeless to a beatiful mansion.

  7. The 2 cops won't be charged. Let's keep making America great again! Jay Z is in.

  8. :)) good job officers!!! He was not dragged people,…after this video his black family took him home, now!!!!???????? Why to make money on lawsuit, before they threw him to streets "like a dog"!!! Primitive black people and their ways.

  9. Couldn't wait to read the comments on this one !

  10. No rope, he runs away. Besides patrol car was called they were busy

  11. At least. . hide your racism. We don't want to see it.

  12. Now they want to take their dad off the street 🤦🏿‍♀️

  13. Pure racism this is what the klan did to blacks 😡😡😡😡

  14. Techinally no patrol car was available but atleast he wasnt dragged on the road

  15. I fail to see how this is racist since they do this to everyone.

  16. What get's me is those ten gallon white hat's.?These honkey cops must think they are bass revesse.

  17. Are they even human. ????
    Just down right disgraceful they wanted to humiliate that man. That's just what they did. They knew better than that but they didn't care. No common sense 👎 human decency 👎 respect. Poor judgement how about just firing them. 😠😠😠

  18. Come on guys really did y'all see a passenger seat on that horse I think the guy didn't have a choice but to walk

  19. I remember years ago when my Daddy punish me he made me walk to my Granny's house a few blocks away while he followed behind in a car

  20. I didn't see any passenger seat on that horse looks like if it was a white guy he would have had to walk to

  21. 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. there is nothing disturbing about any of it. They are on horse back not in a car. I would have done the same thing. If the man in question was white we would not hear anything about it. And when that lady said " you don't even do a dog that way." What BS is that? Dogs have to have some type of leash on them to be out in public with there owners. You can and will get sighted. They were leading him to a police car. So now when crimnals are caught there like "okay I'll follow you to jail." Please give me a break. This is total BS and there never should have been an apology, there is nothing to apologize for. BACK THE BLUE. On this issue.

  24. That's how u got to treat them animals

  25. Here's what I think. if African American men can discriminate against their own women by the color of their skin what makes him think they have the right to Fight Against Racism?

  26. Trump: There are good people on both sides of this situation.

  27. ECCLESIASTES 10 VS 7 I have seen servants upon horses ,and princes walking as servants upon the earth .

  28. I am sorry – but why was he homeless with mental illness when he has family in town?

  29. 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

  30. Good job officers! Finally stand up to scum!

  31. If he was white it wouldn't have even made the news. Black people need to stop acting like victims about everything. If you break the law it doesn't matter how you get arrested.

  32. а могли и пристрелить

  33. FUCK YOUR APOLOGIES.🖕🏿🖕🏿🖕🏿 BLACK PEOPLE GOTTA BEAT SOMEBODY ASS OUT HERE…WHO WANNA FIGHT 🙋🏿‍♂️ SINCE Y'ALL THINK Y'ALL SO TOUGH LET'S FIGHT…🙋🏿‍♂️ COWARD ASS PIGS….

  34. For they did nothing wrong they did not hit the man
    What elets they gonna do tie him to a tree but whatever they do they be racists even though he broke the law but the freedom speech act no
    Let the criminal go fuck that theife is like murder.
    Hand and hand
    Drugs results to murder
    Im shore he's inacent
    For god we'll not brake his commandments for any man no matter your color.

  35. Reading the comments, it's not a racist thing, but the police have made it like one now, People are angry not just because this guy is black, what ever race black, white etc, etc It's Still WRONG !

  36. Beat the shit out of these policemen !

    Galveston citizens: Lets rumble and get them; fortunately we were lucky enough to identify their home addresses.

    You are invited to forward this message to the Galveston Police Department, but this will not save the ass of these two simple-minded creatures !!
