Pit bulls. Who can blame them?

Police. They are trained to be military. Who can blame them. Robocops, skin-heads.

Everything about Texas is ridiculous. Most of the people in that state are fine folks. But Texas justice is third world and that's being nice. They prosecute these cases to try and get a conviction and lessen their odds of losing a civil case. A 12 year old beating on three big cops? at least they didn't empty their firearms into her like they normally do (must have been witneses)

I am a part of the media and I find this case disgusting. Our news network will request an investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice.

We will likely make a criminal complaint.

Why hasn't the mainstream media covered this story?

I was aressted in Galveston county for trespassing when, as a customer of a store I was trying to get a refund. League city Police officers made up charges and would not hear my side of the story.
This happened in June of last year and they just keep postponing and there have been three prosecutors,no evidence of charges.
