Wow. I know that I've had my own issues when with my own damn kids, but at least I've never been cuffed. That poor guy and that poor child having to witness that. -
"Corporal Anthony Hipolito of the Austin Police Department verified that Henson was stopped on Feb. 10, as police were searching for a kidnapper who'd allegedly snatched a young black girl nearby." -
"Ty's mother is his goddaughter, and Henson and his wife often find themselves 'tasked with unplanned impromptu babysitting duties, like hundreds of other parents and grandparents around Austin.'" -
I'm going to bail on this if and when you guys start flaming me, 'cause I basically agree with "Wow"... but those two quotes seems to make it a slightly different situation than one might infer from the headline. -
Also: "Austin police released surveillance video of the incident in an effort to refute Scott Henson's claim that officers were "rough" and came at him with "Tasers drawn."
Wait, I read this story last year?! -
