Lying Cops and the Lying Liars That Cover For Them
DATELINE: HUMBLE Texas —Christopher Hanna spent 19 hours in the Humble jail before being booked into the Harris County Jail with a bloody face and his head bandaged up.
Who you going to believe, the cops or your lying eyes?
“After securing the firearm, Officer John Cox moved to detain the suspect, at which point the suspect backed away from the officer and refused to turn around and put his hands behind his back. Knowing the suspect had admitted to possessing and firing a firearm earlier in the evening, once the suspect continued to attempt to put space between himself and Officer Cox, the officer took the suspect down onto a patch of grass and handcuffed him without further incident. At no time did the officer strike the suspect, and it was determined the injuries suffered by the suspect were caused solely by the altercation in which he was involved prior to Officer Cox’s arrival,” Humble Police Chief Ken Theis wrote in a statement in part to KPRC 2.
The incident with officer Cox is being classified by former Houston police officer and now lawyer, Tom Nixon as an arrest tactic used during a case of non-compliance.
“No, he’s not exactly complying with what the officers instructions are. So, when he fails to comply and he tries to take a step back to make distance, the officer has to start thinking, ‘Is this guy about to run away on me?’” Nixon said. “It doesn’t even look like he punched him in the face. It looks like he hit him in the collar bone which is what he was aiming for in order to shift his body weight to take him to the ground.”
Hanna’s attorney says the claims are ridiculous, “They had to have known at that point, since they secured the scene, that he had no weapons – he wasn’t a threat to them in any way. This kind of nonsense is why they have an image problem.”
Cox is still on duty.
Hanna plans on suing.
