"Anyone out there in the Wimberely area willing to do some leg work for my parents? My Dad or brother, Steven, can't walk and my Mom is about to fall over from the stress, she is really getting sick from all this. We need to get together several documents from various places.. such as EMS ambulance report, hospital report, EMT reports... and of course the police report. Thank you Leah"

My friend, Leah Harrison, posted this on her FB page today. Included in this email is the web address for picture proof of what these "police officers" did to her 80 year old father and his 58 year old son. I am a teacher in Magnolia and this story is getting around very quick. I was hoping that someone in your area of expertise might be able to point them in the right direction. Her parents are retired and this is killing them. The officers knocked Steven unconcious and dragged him to the police care (still unconcious) and then they threw Leah's father in the police car as well. You know what they got besides a broken leg, a concussion and numerous other injuries? Public support...go look at Leah Harrison's FB page and see what all is being said. The sad thing is that this is all because the officers said that they were trespassing on their own property! Mr. Threadgill and Steven Threadgill never even got a ticket! Please help them ASAP! The following is the link to the picture proof:

This is absolutely and utterly sickening these Sheriff deputies are way out of control. An 80 year old man on his own property no matter what he did not deserve this type of abuse!! AND THAT IS WHAT IT IS NO MATTER WHAT SPIN THEY THROW AT IT!!!!!!!!!! And they wonder why people are so leary at any moment they can beat you down for absolutely no reason and say you resisted. I really hope someone out there can help these folks it sounds like they really need some.

I hope theses cops pay dearly for what they did please contact every media outlet you can and show them the photos. They broke a civil rights law by beating that 80 year old man. DO NOT SETTLE FOR MONEY OUT OF COURT. These cops belong in prison screw the money do justice to them. To often the cops judges and local media outlet The wimberley paper, put there spin on it and the cops get of with suspension or some other crap. Also the paper published the police report without investigating anything else. I guess they have a friend there to. Please try to include all of this. PLEASE take this to a jury trial. Think about if you did this to a cop what they would do to you. I want these cops gone for good or else they may do it again!

I'm sure those two deserved it. Just because someone got beat you all think the cops were wrong.

Wow, that's about as sensitive as saying a cop deserved to be killed, it's part of the job. They got bad ass insurance and bennies why donate to their families. They didn't? it's not my charity that will compensate for their lack of economic preparation. I have plenty of friends in the law enforcement, an officer is not clean as a whistle. This goes department wide in different cities too. Hope justice is served.

By the way Bill, my ex-husband is a police officer and former special ops in the USAF. I know what police officers are allowed what to do and what they aren't allowed to do. I have been on both sides. By the way, have you taken a look recently at the San Marcos news? Two police officers (wonder if any of those cops went to San Marcos after they left Wimberley)were arrested for beating up a woman who argued with them on a traffic stop...Hmmm..yeah according to Bill, she probably deserved it!
