    Here's the kick in the balls: The same leftist racists who are defending this teen today, will be accusing him of 'not paying his fair share' after he becomes rich from the settlements.

    It's really quite simple. It doesn't matter what the racial make-up of the jury is. You've got accused Cops in the courtroom looking at the jury members. The jury members know that the Cops will be able to find out the names and addresses of the jury members. They fear retribution and revenge at a later date if they convict.

    The stomp reminds me of a 1%'er MC in action. It's hard to get juries to convict biker club members too for the same reason.

    He was an ex-cop, since he was fired right after the incident. There would have been no retribution.

    The verdict was much more likely to be due to the charges or something about the trial.

    Also, people keep bringing up the "all white jury" but the DA has a say in who gets selected to be on the jury. The DA had opportunity to put jurors of other races (most likely) on the jury. Unless there is a very small number of minorities in this community to begin with.

    Look. Here's the deal man. We all saw the video. No one is saying that the cops didn't open a can of bluemob whupass on the scumbag punk.

    No one is saying that that type of police behavior should be taken as acceptable, as a rule of thumb.

    The cops were way over the line. I get it. Rodney King. I get it.

    If the cops got 30 years in the slammer for it instead of an acquittal, I wouldn't argue much with that either. Neither will I lose any sleep over their acquitals down in Judge Roy Beanland.

    All I am saying is, **** that punk. My heart bleeds peanut butter for him.

    It's Texas. Cops have been beating the **** out of blacks down in Texas for decades if not centuries. Don't mess with Texas. Texans could care less how you or I feel about it. They have their own sense of reality and they are doing quite well, thank you..

You don't see that much, but when you do, you get to appreciate cops. Not all of them, though. There are a few bad apples that belong in jail or in a padded cell. LOL.
    I had a guy tell me one night...that he was glad to see me...and that he hated cops....I said your no different than most people...they always love us when they need us...

    It saddens me to add that Texas has (maybe) the largest KKK club in the US. It's a really huge group here and encompasses many law enforcement officers throughout central Texas and the Hill country. I've run up on the wrong side of them before. I had to back off. They can take a man's freedom away.

    astounding i have to describe this to an officer of the court
    but our nation has a long history of mistreatment of people of color - tho not blondes, as you suggest
    even Stevie Wonder could see from that video that the cops were guilty of abusing the defenseless, BLACK suspect
    and an all WHITE jury refused to convict
    this picked the scab off of an old racial wound

    Google Vidor Texas. Or Jasper.

    I was born and raised in Texas. A nice place to visit.

    Not sure I'd wanna move back there though. And I'm white.
