GALVESTON, Texas (KTRK) — After public outcry over the arrest of a handcuffed man led by officers on horseback, Galveston police have released the full arrest bodycam video.
He was arrested in the 600 block of 23rd Street and walked to 21st and Market. People took pictures and video, and the images have been compared to those from the dark days of slavery.
It appears the officers involved were aware at the time of how it would appear to the public. One could be heard saying, “This is going to to look really bad.”
