The Trump Effect visits Galveston Texas. I got a Facebook message that said a kid took a picture of a black man that was being pulled by an officer on a horse with a leash.

It does not matter if the black man in the photograph is a criminal -- he was a trespasser. The depiction of his interface with police officers is unforgivable and deserving of much more than a simple reprimand. These officers should be fired.

I called the Galveston Police Department and after awaiting a callback for some time, they sent me a press release. Among some of the gibberish they sent me in the press release, they claim the rope was not a leash. Of course, it was a rope connected to his handcuffs effectively a leash. Even the terrorist who killed 22 people in El Paso was escorted to the police car humanely.

The Galveston police have responded as though the officers were tone-deaf but didn't do anything really wrong. The fact is that their explanation in the press release is also bullshit. The officers treated the man in a way that no person should ever be treated. They should be fired.

Nope, there's no institutional racism in America. Just move along.

And Eric Garner, a black man, was murdered by cops in NYC for selling single cigs on a street corner. A white guy slaughters 22 people in El Paso, and is treated, well, like a white guy.

Not breaking any laws does not mean you are doing the right the thing! The Galveston police treatment of a black tresspasser and their response after the fact sends the message to the nation that they do not like colored folks down there and they probably think this is the way to MAGA!
