Cool DD's dad beaten badly by HPD

http://www.khou.com/topstories/stori...1cb8eecb4.html

Sad news for Donald Driver and his family, whatever the true story may be. Too bad Quannell X is involved, Ii think that hurts credibility.

We met DD this year at a Texans' lucheon - nice guy who has gone a long way from the 3rd Ward but hasn't forgotten his roots.

Thoughts and prayers to his father and the family.

From the article:

Quote:
"We take allegations such as these very seriously and will begin a thorough investigation into the matter," HPD said in a statement released late Wednesday.
So seriously, in fact, that:

Quote:
"The two officers remain on duty pending further investigation.
We'll see what story comes out of this, but I can't think of any scenario where the cops are justified in this. Except, you know .... they're cops.

That is horrible. I guess HPD is slipping back into their days of the 1970's. Thoughts and prayers to the Driver family and yes Yankee, Donald is a really nice guy. I've met him before when he was on John and Lance's show (610 days). He took time out to not only meet everyone there, but actually conversed with us as though he had known everyone for a while

This is the same HPD that tazed Fred Weary........how one goes from being in the back of a police car to a hospital is beyond me. I know there are many good cops out there, but stories like this don't help their cause and the main reason I will never trust a cop......never.

You though he was taking a nap, playing possum, what is it...he's "ok" when you put him in there, but when you get to where you were going, he's been beat down....was there someone in the back seat with him ???

Yeah, the Wild West days are back !!!

At least HPD has progressed. In the 70's they would have found Mr. Driver's body floating in a bayou...

That's certainly one case that shouldn't be forgotten.

There was also a case where a teenager originally from Oklahoma (I believe) had stolen a car. When he pulled over, he was shot and a gun was planted on him, by HPD. There was a movie made about it, but I can't remember the name of it... I think Tom Skerritt played the kid's father.


*EDIT*
It was actually Hal Holbrook and the name of the movie was 'The Killing of Randy Webster'

What a disgusting story, I really don't trust cops one bit either, I know there are good ones out there but too much of this stuff goes on, too many of them let the power go to their heads. The bad apples really make you doubt the whole bunch.

I agree, I don't trust HPD either. Sounds like haterism to me. I'm sure they knew sooner or later who his son was and just got all bent, jealous, mad they're salaries suck, didn't think he should be driving that kind of car, his son made it to the pros and their sons didn't or they sucked bad at playing football, and then beat that poor man. Sorry just got got a cold heart for cops.

Remember that for every bad cop, there may be two good ones. I don't like the odds.

Prayers sent for the Drivers and I hope for a speedy recovery.

I've been out of Houston for close to 26 years now and that name brings back so many memories. Wow. If memory serves John Connolly even defended the slap on the wrist those cops got.

Seeking justice in Houston
Monday, Apr. 17, 1978

Shortly before midnight last May 5, an Army veteran named Joe Campos Torres, 23, was arrested for shouting insults and threatening customers at the Club 21, located in a Mexican-American community on Houston's east side. Wearing Army fatigues and combat boots, Torres appeared drunk but apparently healthy when police officers took him away. A few hours later, when the police brought him to jail, he was so badly bruised that duty officers refused to book him. They told the arresting officers to take Torres to Ben Taub General Hospital for treatment. Instead, six policemen drove him one mile to an area known as "the Hole," behind a large warehouse facing the muddy Buffalo Bayou that winds through the city. There, according to subsequent testimony, they pushed Torres off a 20-ft. dock into the bayou. His body was discovered two days later, floating in 15ft. of water.
