Fort Worth Police Chief Is Wrong, Jacqueline Craig's Arrest Was Racist

Fort Worth Police Chief Is Wrong, Jacqueline Craig's Arrest Was Racist

"We don't believe him to convey a weapon nor does he have our consent to come in our group and sanction fatal drive", B.R. Daniels Jr., minister of First Greater New Hope Baptist Church told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

While a Tarrant County grand jury declined to indict Collie in September, according to court records, the case against the officer - identified only as "Officer Barron" - who shot Collie has not yet been presented to a grand jury, according to Sgt. Marc Povero, police spokesman.

Washington said most of Fort Worth's police officers are good men and women who do their jobs in a professional manner. She says she asked the neighbor why he put his hands on her son. Fitzgerald asked the community to be patient while the incident is investigated. The attorney said he released the video Tuesday at a news conference at Collie's insistence because Collie was exhausted of comments made to his mother by people assuming he must have done something wrong.

Protesters Call for Fort Worth Officer to be FiredAbout 150 protesters gathered on the steps of the old Tarrant County courthouse to speak out against the officer and to speak up for the Craig family.

"You just pissed me off telling me what I teach my kid and what I don't", she continues. You don't have the right to choke somebody's son. What you can see in the video is upsetting many people in the community.

A police dashcam video was released on Tuesday showing what appears to be a Texas officer shooting a black man in the back as he's walking away.

"Yeah", the officer replies, confirming her claim did actually happen.

The video shows the argument escalating, eventually leading to Craig and Hymond being arrested. Police said Collie was shot after he threatened officers with a box cutter, but new video has raised doubts.

Craig, getting frustrated, tells the officer that he doesn't know what she teaches her son, and that children don't always follow their parents' rules.

On July 27, 2016, Collie was walking from work to a friend's apartment in the 8700 block of North Normandale Street when the officers approached him in the patrol vehicle, Washington said.

"I don't know how to". He was told again by the officers to stop and show the officers his hands, one of which was in a pant's pocket.

Obi said a "pattern of officer misconduct", including the Fort Worth incident, has outraged the black community around Dallas.

"Many members of our community have been assaulted, handled roughly by Fort Worth police officers". He points a Taser into Craig's back and, after cuffing her, points the Taser at the daughter who tried to intervene and arrests her. Police said the daughter filming the incident was arrested, too.

The officer pushes Craig to the ground.

The police statement said investigators "worked throughout the night" interviewing witnesses and reviewing video evidence, including footage from the officer's body camera.

Terri Burke, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Texas, said that when the officer arrived at the scene of the conflict between Craig and her neighbor, he had a responsibility to de-escalate the confrontation, but instead he did the opposite.

He has been placed on restricted duty, pending the outcome of the investigation.
