    Yeah, not the greatest optics. Could have waited for a police car to take him in.

    Not only that but it doesn't look good.

    I think the only thing that could have made it more blatantly racist was if they had the rope around his neck when they marched him in.

    these officers should be fired immediately.

    Can't wait to see the same typical names come in here and claim nothing racist about leading a black man into town by rope while the "law" rides in on horses.

    it's right out of a goddamn movie trope.

    2019. Holy crap, they should have called for a squad car to come get him. I can’t say they were racist, but... :oops:

    According to this guy it’s(was anyway. It’s been rescinded after the uproar) a standard department procedure if there is no car available.
