Black Man Led by Horseback of Texas Police Full Body Camera Video Released – WATCH =>

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.

Donald Neely was arrested in August for criminal trespassing. A photo was captured at the time showing Neely being led by two mounted officers on horseback for six blocks.

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.”

Andrew Yang: Taxing The Wealthy Is A Disaster in Practice – WATCH =>

“I understand the spirit of it and the intent of it. But I agree that it would be somewhere between problematic and a disaster in practice,” Yang told CNBC’s John Harwood.

Yang: I think the wealth tax is an idea, in spirit, that makes sense, given the wealth distribution. But in practice it would have massive implementation problems. There would be capital flight, wealthy people would renounce their citizenship. And the bigger problem isn’t even the money. It’s the annual inventorying of their assets. The truly wealthy in this country have zero interest in submitting to an annual audit of all of their assets. They barely know what all their assets are. And the last thing they’re going to do is report them every year and then pay a toll. So you would have massive compliance problems. And to me there are better ways to make this economy fair, though I understand the spirit of it and the intent of it. But I agree that it would be somewhere between problematic and a disaster in practice.
