How Many Prostitutes Look 12-Years-Old and Scream, ‘Daddy, Daddy’?

CopssjpgThis story, out of Texas, comes again from QuizLaw confidential informant, Joyce:

It was a little before 8 at night when the breaker went out at Emily Milburn’s home in Galveston. She was busy preparing her children for school the next day, so she asked her 12-year-old daughter, Dymond, to pop outside and turn the switch back on.
As Dymond headed toward the breaker, a blue van drove up and three men jumped out rushing toward her. One of them grabbed her saying, “You’re a prostitute. You’re coming with me.”
Dymond grabbed onto a tree and started screaming, “Daddy, Daddy, Daddy.” One of the men covered her mouth. Two of the men beat her about the face and throat.
As it turned out, the three men were plain-clothed Galveston police officers who had been called to the area regarding three white prostitutes soliciting a white man and a black drug dealer.

Joyce’s ire is also appropriate, so here it is in full:

Where the fuck do these guys get off? They are called out because three white woman were allegedly soliciting, and the cops end up arresting (kidnapping) a twelve year old black girl two blocks away. After wrongfully arresting and brutally restraining her (scaring the bejeezus out of the little girl and scarring her for life), they had the gall to arrest her three weeks later AT HER SCHOOL for resisting arrest. The case was declared a mistriail on the first day but still. This girl should be rewarded damages, a full, heartfeld apology, and a lifetime of free maid service by the policemen who mistreated her so. Since they apparently aren’t very useful as police officers, OR human beings, they should be made to fetch her slippers. Being a black girl’s man servant for the rest of their life has to be a more just punishment than jail time (and will cost the state nothing). I should totally be a judge.

With that kind of ruling, I’d totally hire you as a judge, Joyce.

I also loved a very appropriate quote from H.L. Menken left in the comments section to this story:

“Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats.”

What the motherfucking fuck is wrong with these people.

Maybe the Greeks do have the right idea about cops.....

Ah the Galveston po-po, there is little they love more than gratuitous violence. Also, how did they go from a report of *white* prostitutes to arresting a little *black* girl??!?!?

the worst is the response from the police office where they basically blame the girl by replying that it's unfortunate that she fought back and the police had to resort to violence.Both the daughter and the father were arrested for assaulting a peace officer.

"The father basically attacked police officers as they were trying to take the daughter into custody after she ran off."

Also, "The city has investigated the matter and found that the conduct of the police officers was appropriate under the circumstances," Helfand says. "It's unfortunate that sometimes police officers have to use force against people who are using force against them. And the evidence will show that both these folks violated the law and forcefully resisted arrest."

sounds like these cops should loose their jobs as least.. no mention of them identifying themselves
and in a world where young girls do in fact get kidnapped and killed all too often.. i sure as hell would have fought the max.. and called for
help.. and what daddy would not protect his daughter.. basically the department took these
men at their word .. still why in the story is no mention of them identifying themselves.. no one can find these cops innocent of being bad cops
based on the story
truth is .. there are way too many bad cops.. and it seems to be getting worse all the time

Yea, I from Galveston. This is almost regular behavior against blacks on the Island. They are still fighting against school desegragation,in the courts,50 years after the fact, just as quietly as sending this girl's father for two years to a Texas State jail for cocaine possesion, after busting him"TWO DAYS" after this incident with his baby daughter. The only difference in this racially biggoted city, is that they use a minority to offend the other minorities. It makes it OK,if a minority does the heavy work for the white system.
