Attorney demands body cam footage of officers on horses leading black man by rope

Source: NBC

Civil rights attorney Ben Crump on Monday demanded that a Texas police department release body camera footage from an arrest involving two white officers on horses leading a black man in handcuffs by a rope.

Photos of the detainment, which went viral last week, show Donald Neely, 43, flanked by two Galveston Police Department officers on horseback as they lead him by a rope attached to handcuffs clasped behind his back.

He had been arrested for trespassing and led about two blocks. His family and attorney say Neely suffers from mental illness, and the Galveston Police Department is familiar with him.

Crump said he filed a formal request for the release of the body camera videos. The police department has 20 business days to make them public, or it can choose to fight the request by sending it to the Texas attorney general.

2. They look like two bounty hunters who have tracked down a runaway slave, as they return him.

Absolutely hateful.

Not a trace of human resemblance with the two sociopaths sitting on the horses.
