Houston Police Caught On Camera Beating Black Teen

Houston Police BEATING Teen Suspect Chad Holley [VIDEO]

Here is another case of injustice and brutality being perpetrated against the African American community. Even the Houston Police Chief had to admit to a room of jurors on Tuesday that the video captured in 2012was sickening. The video depicts the beating of a black teenage burglary suspect. The chief claimed that after seeing the footage he was made to feel “sick to the stomach” and such an embarrassing incident has been like a “black eye” given to the police department.

The Police Chief, Charles McClelland Jr. gave his statement in court against ex-officer Drew Ryser, who was terminated after the 2010 beating. He is also one of the four officers to be indicted in this particular case. He stated the the officer failed to follow proper procedures and coincidentally mistreated the teen in question during the arrest.

Drew Ryser, a 32 year old ex-police officer, is on trial this week for misdemeanor charges, and faces up to a year in jail if the conviction goes through.

The Chief was quoted telling the special prosecutor Jonathan Munier, “It made me sick to my stomach because it was an egregious use of force and the men and women of the Houston police department are better than that … they did not deserve that type of black eye.” It’s hard to believe that someone can honestly say that those officers did not deserve the stigma they brought upon themselves. After watching the brutal video, they clearly brought all of this upon themselves.

The former officer’s actions were justified in court by claiming that he was following procedures  for an arrest of a suspect who might have been armed.

Though this would be a reasonable answer if the suspect was armed, the footage recorded in March of 2010  clearly shows then 15 year old  Chad Holley falling to the ground after being rammed head on by a police squad car. After landing on the ground the suspect immediately laid still and placed his hands behind his head, yet he was still surrounded and beat by five policemen. The men were seen kicking the suspect in the head, side, and legs.

The public was furious with footage that came out and the Houston police department received much criticism. Activist groups called this incident another case of police brutality against minorities.

McClelland admitted that it was disturbing to see the Holley had obviously given up and gave “no active resistance and the force that was being used against him was excessive and unnecessary.” He then went on to explain that if Ryser and the other officers believed Holley might have been armed, proper procedure would have called for one officer to draw his weapon on the teen and for another officer to then handcuff him.

  6. DEVALUE DEMOCRACY CIVIL AND HUMAN RIGHT WILL GET YOU A AMERICA THAT WILL GET AWAY WITH KILLING INNOCENT CITIZEN.

    If you hear that a person was handcuffed and beaten and or shot dead by cops. More then likely it is a minority. Normally a black male! The more power given to police officer takes away many human and civil rights of all Americans. Especially black people! A sharply divided Supreme Court cleared the way for police to take a DNA swab from anyone they arrest for a serious crime, endorsing a practice now followed by more than half the states as well as the federal government. See this ruling is another way of devaluing American democracy and civil and human! It is also another way of targeting black people! There is (DWB) Driving While Black” and (WWB) Walking While Black” Stop & Frisk Laws” “ Voter Suppression Law” “Stand Your Ground Laws” “Saggy Pants Laws”! All these written and un-written laws can lead to beating taser and or death of American by cops and another citizen. Especially targeting black people!

    Now police officer have added to thing that can allow them to slam you to the ground and choke you until you urinate in your clothes! I’m naming it (WWSAC) Walking While Stare At Cops”! A 14-year-old black teenage boy was choked, slammed to the ground and arrested by two white Miami police officers with guns taser mace sticks weighting 210 plus pounds. Claim a teen weighting 90 pound half naked holding a puppy stared at them in a “dehumanizing” way. Tremaine McMillian, an black teen boy from southern Florida, spent Memorial Day on the beach with his family. While he was ‘rough-housing’ with another teen on Haulover Beach, police drove by on an ATV and told him that his behavior was unacceptable. They asked the boy where his parents where, and McMillian walked away.
    The Miami-Dade police officers subsequently jumped off their ATVs to restrain the teen, claiming he gave them “dehumanizing stares” and “appeared threatening.” Maurissa Holmes, the mother of the boy, captured the incident on her cell phone. Video footage shows one police officer choking the 14-year-old boy while the other officer is restraining him. “He started choking me, and as he was choking me, I urinated on myself because I couldn’t breathe,” McMillian told WSVN-TV after the incident. The boy’s mother was close by and ran over to the officers, telling them to get off. They told her to stand back.

    While your not watching and understanding the true evil of DNA swab! To give a already bias racist and corrupt law enforcement and judicial system. The right to DNA swab you and enter your DNA into a data bank for getting arrested “WILL” lead to planting DNA evidence to gain conviction on innocent citizen. Especially black people! Remember the OJ Simpson Trial when Detective Mark Fuhman. He admitted planting evidence on black innocent people to gain arrest and later conviction. Any election of politician should demand that they overturn laws that place American in danger! Write laws that protect American citizen civil and human rights!

  7. WHITE RACIST MEDIA AND THE MENTALITY OF HATE HAS BEEN VERY SUCCESSFUL IN CREATING THE BLACK BOOGIE MAN.

    It is clear that because of America’s un-even start when it comes to race. Whites gave themselves an advantage! Then because of a white racist mentality taught to the country and the world. That black American are the problem and whites are innocent victim. Of a black race with animosity about a white America racist and hate and dividing start! Whites control the media and threw the media taught hate and divide and negative black stereotypes! Black became America’s “Boogie Man”! That are to be treated less then. Black on black crime was repeated over and over by the white control media. Black communities (bad neighborhoods) and black parents are to blame for black crime. The lack of teaching morals and proper education were also to blame! Now John Wayne Casey a white man murder and raped 33 plus white males. White on white crime never mention by the white control media. Today John Wayne Casey community is not called a bad neighborhood.

    Then whites in authority or whites with the capability of media and belief that blacks are the low life classless evil people “The Boogie Man”! Police department and law enforcement in general are taught that minorities and especially blacks are “The Boogie Man”! Blacks should alway be looked at as suspicious. Walking driving running breathing blacks were up to something in the minds of whites in authority and the rest of the country. White racist mentality was very successful is teaching hate and divide and blacks are always on the defense!

    Donald Trump is a “birther” that believe President Obama’s birth records were fake and 50 years ago. Obama’s family plotted by creating a fake birth place because they knew he was going to be President years later. According to Trump “and we know that once you begin making a point by quoting Bill O'Reilly, it's all downhill from there), "80% of all the shootings in New York City are blacks — if you add Hispanics, that figure goes to 98%. 1% white." TOTAL LIE! In tweets that have since been deleted, Trump went on to say, "When it comes to violent crime, and if we are going to solve the problem, we must stop being so politically correct — must tell it like it is!" Then, "Likewise, the primary victims of violent crime are in the African American and Hispanic communities. These people want LAW AND ORDER now!

    A white female Texas judge ( a white in authority) allegedly said blacks and Hispanics are‘predisposed to commit crime! Civil rights groups have filed an ethics complaint against a Texas federal court judge after allegations that she made racist statements! I write often about negative black stereotypes that are detrimental to black people. On many levels of living in America! Starting with being born! Congressional Democrats blasted former Education Secretary William Bennett for saying that aborting "every black baby in this country" would reduce the crime rate! The former Secretary said that because he knew nothing could be done to him. Bennett also knew that in America the white control media along with American history has convince the public. He is right! WHEN HE IS WRONG!

    Just think if a judges a profession that should be fair and balance and base on equality has a believe system discrimination. Also believe that minorities are‘predisposed to commit crime. How can she be fair when a minorities litigant is in front of her? America by now knows Donald Trump is a racist nut with a agenda to say outrageous things! But these believe system and outrageous things are detrimental to minorities!

  8. CAUGHT ON CAMERA !!! Thank goodness for these cameras !!!
    RODNEY KING was a famous case when the cops were caught beating him. We have seen so many of these cops beating up on people like they are a bunch of thugs that it is sickening.

    Just recently 2 cops in Jasper, TX were caught on camera beating a Black woman over a traffic ticket. Jasper is the same place where the Black man was tied to the back of a pickup truck and dragged until his body fell apart a few years ago.

    “Post racial”???? The more things change…the more they seem to stay the same.
