Two equestrian police in the US state of Texas, a black person after tying the rope was handcuffed. Reflection of the images to the press after the police organization ‘apology message’ came.
The images were targeted by criticism on the grounds that the United States, in particular in the southern states, evoked slavery practices in force for many years.
Adrienne Bell, a congressional candidate from the 14th district of Texas, announced at the beginning of the week that the photo she published on her Facebook page was real.
After the reactions, the police authorities apologized for the practice.
According to Euronews, the written statement said that this method was considered the best practice in some scenarios, such as intervening in events involving a large number of people, but in this case the police officers made a wrong decision and should wait for the transfer of the suspect person. Police officials announced that the suspect is a person with a criminal record and known by the police, but the police officers have immediately changed their policies so that this technique cannot be reused.
