"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." - Ken Sheppardson
"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.'" - Ken Sheppardson
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. - Ken Sheppardson
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." http://www.nydailynews.com/news..." - Ken Sheppardson
Wait, I read this story last year?! - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
