Its even worse - Black Man Walked With Rope by Mounted Police Has Mental Illness

Black Man Walked With Rope by Mounted Police Has Mental Illness, According to Family: ‘They Don’t Care to Know the Whole Story’

This is how much we care about mental illness


Family members of Donald Neely, the 43-year-old homeless man who was handcuffed and led by a rope by two white Galveston, Texas, officers on horseback last weekend, said he has struggled with mental illness for years—and that his condition was well documented.

Neely—whose arrest went viral after photos of him walking down the street, flanked by two mounted officers, his hands tied with rope, was shared on social media—has had schizophrenia and bipolar disorder for most of his life, his sister Tranette Neely told the New York Times.
Because of his condition, Neely has refused his family’s attempts to bring him home, and he has often slept in the streets. According to his sister, a recent attempt to bring him to his family resulted in Neely jumping out of a moving car.

She also said officers should have been aware of his mental health status because he’s had run-ins with the law before.

Where do you find the Trump donor list for your city?

I heard Joe Scarborough say these are Public Records - like Rep Castro posted for his city.

I would love to know what businesses in my area are supporting the POS so I can not spend my money there and tell them exactly why I am not giving them my business.

Why is he even going? Nobody believes him, He doesn't want to, Why cause anymore harm?

Why is he even going to El Paso?

Why add insult to injury? He doesn't really want to, nor can he be authentic in comforting the victims. Why is he being forced on these communities?

Its like forcing an abused victim to embrace their abuser. Why can't we skip the horse and pony show? Nobody would fault him for not going. At least they shouldn't. Its a useless spectacle that will cost tax payers - only to inflict more pain on the victims with his presence./

Lynchings, Church Bombings, Kidnapping, Rape, Beatings, - Racial Hatred Not Mental Health

All these atrocities were perpetrated in the civil rights era and before - Nothing happening now is new except for technology. The racists back then held meetings and distributed pamphlets. That's how they grew their base. They did not have the internet.

Now they have a conglomerate on the internet to distribute their message -
Now racial violence/white nationalist terrorism is a mental health issue?

Stop the fucking madness!

The republicans are already coming out with this talking point and its insulting.

This morning Trump tweeted about knife violence in London and crimes by Syrian immigrants in Germany

Will he say anything about White nationalist terrorists in the USA?


On Saturday morning, Trump twice retweeted British pundit Katie Hopkins, who first gained prominence as a contestant on the BBC TV series The Apprentice and has since drawn attention through what are widely seen as bigoted attacks on Muslims. In the tweets Trump promoted, which Hopkins posted on Thursday, Hopkins criticized London Mayor Sadiq Khan over knife crime in the city and faulted German Chancellor Angela Merkel for crimes committed by Syrian migrants in Germany.

Another Disturbing Facebook Post from a police officer

Why the hell is he still a cop?

Here is a cop that was posting vile images of black football players being mutilated, drugging women with roofies and insinuating rape - I guess because he was using toys its not supposed to be serious? But what kind of disgusting person takes the time to set this up?
Why should anyone trust this person with a gun and the power to arrest people at their own whim?

Warning this contains images that are possibly triggering!

Police lied about Tony Timpa's death

No surprise there.

They were putting his life at risk for Restraint Asphyxia. They had to know this. That is what disturbed me most of all.

Then came the attempted cover up. Thankfully his mother was not having any of it.

When Timpa died, there was no shooting to report. His call to 911 was dispatched as a person in need of assistance. There were no reports of a homicide at 1720 W. Mockingbird Lane the night he died. There was no booking report because he never made it to jail.
His mother, Vicki Timpa, said police initially told her that her son had a heart attack at a bar and died. Another officer told her that a policeman wandering down the street found Tony Timpa passed out by his car, and then he died.
Still another officer told her, “Tony called 911, got in an ambulance, waved to the cops and then he collapsed,” she said.
She didn’t believe any of it. She’s seen her son’s body at the morgue -- there was grass in his nose, she said, and bruises on his arms.
A woman at the morgue told Vicki: Call Ambulance 47.

So she called the Dallas Fire-Rescue crew who responded that night after the officers were on the scene. Whoever answered told her: “Ask the police what happened,” then hung up, she said.
Two weeks after her son’s death, Vicki Timpa filed the first request for public records from the Dallas Police Department, scrawling on the form: “I want to know what happened.”

At the same time, an anonymous tipster contacted The News, asking a reporter to look into the death of a man he only knew by first name: Tony.
It took more than a month of searching public records for The News to find Dallas police incident No. 192631-2016: "Sudden Death. Complainant died by unknown means."
The victim was listed as the same person who'd called the police: Anthony Alan Timpa.
