A Texas teen accused of burglary was beaten, run-over, and stomped repeatedly by several Houston area police officers. That dramatic 2010 incident is NOT in dispute. It was caught on tape.
What is in dispute is whether those officers committed a crime. This week a jury said no, in the case of the first officer to be tried.
This has sparked racial tension in the community and calls for the Justice Department to investigate.
Here is my conversation on HLN with that officer’s attorney, and a community activist who is close with the teen’s family.
