Houston Police have refused to explain why they took a 13-year-old white girl from her two black guardians over the weekend and placed her in the custody of Child Protective Services.
Landry Thompson’s mother had signed notarized papers giving dance instructor Emmanuel Hurd full guardianship over her during a trip from Oklahoma to Houston for training,according to KHOU.
Thompson, Hurd and another dance instructor had stopped at a gas station in Houston on Saturday night when they were surrounded by police cars.
Thompson is a 13-year-old blonde white girl and both dance instructors are young African-American men.
“We were on the GPS trying to figure out where the hotel was,” Hurd recalled. “They just pulled us out of the car and put our hands behind our backs like we were criminals.”
“The officer asked me ‘who’s the girl?’ and I said ‘she’s my student,’” Hurd continued. “I told him I had a notarized letter from her parents stating that we have full guardianship over her while we’re here.”
All three told the police the same story, but the officers apparently weren’t buying it.
“They still put handcuffs on me and it really scared me,” the 13-year-old said. “And they put me in the back of a cop car and I was terrified.”
Thompson’s mother, Destiny, was shocked when she found out that her daughter had been placed in the care of Child Protective Services.
“She was with the people I wanted her to be with,” the mother remarked. “She was with people I trusted. And now she was taken away from those people and in a shelter with people I didn’t know.”
At first officials reportedly demanded that the mother fly to Houston to get her daughter, but 11 hours later, the girl was released back into the custody of Hurd.
Destiny Thompson insisted that the police owed her and her daughter an apology. However, the department refused to comment for KHOU’s report.
Someone should probably tell them Rosa Parks ended racism.
I think that person will be an elected official and an attorney who will be handsomely compensated. That lawsuit will be astronomical!! Good!!
fun fact: if you tell someone to kill themselves it’s considered encouraging suicide and you can get a fine of $25,000 and 10+ years in prison. if they actually commit you can be charged with manslaughter.
so really it’s in your best interest not to be a cunt.
This needs to be shared
-everyone- needs to see this.
Anyone who does this should go……well…..I don’t wanna be fined and imprisoned.
I have these moments when I get so depressed in a matter of moments. My whole world feels like it caves in on me. Stress over finances builds up and new life changes and everything gets the best of me and sometimes all I want is a hug and to be told that everything is going to be ok. It breaks my heart when I open up to someone I love more than life itself and tell them how I feel and what I need to feel better and they reply with, “You wouldn’t believe it if I said it.” Then they walk away and you feel crushed like you were driven down deeper and darker than you were before.
BECAUSE WOMEN AREN’T JUST BOOBS THEY’RE PEOPLE JESUS CHRIST
Wow, in all honesty….as a man, I’m not my beard, but I’d like to beat cancer without losing it. People get way too uptight. I’m sure a lot of women (maybe not you) would like to beat cancer without losing their tits. Jesus Christ. Calm yours.
I think instead of trying to educate people/government on rape culture and trying to make them not joke about it, we train women on how to use a gun and let the problem weed itself out. I have no sympathy for rapists. The court system will never take it seriously enough.
