    maybe the media will pay as much attention to it as they did when ann presley, blond white female, was brutally raped and murdered by two black men but it was downplayed just before the election , of course to help obama.

    Two things:

    1. Google News results for:
    “Anne Presly murder” – 1,319 results
    “Dymond Milburn” – 1 result

    2. There’s only one black man suspected of being involved in the death of Anne Pressly, and he wasn’t arrested until November 27 – three weeks after the election. Before then, no one knew what race the alleged attacker was, so why on Earth would anyone think to “downplay it” before the election?

    My god, that was a Herculean effort in stupid.

    I’ve long had the impression that anyone who’d want to work as a drug or vice cop has to be bent already. This is yet another in the great litany of evidence that supports said impression, with precious little evidence to the contrary.

    dopes. the point of the post is police also corrupt in the ann presley case, being told not to release anything until after the election, thats why it came out 3 weeks later.
    let me guess, the police are corrupt when it comes to brutality on minorities, but it’s not corrupt in the pressely case. what a sad sack of dumbed down humanity the nyt and the rest of the creatins in ny and hollywood have made you.

    In what imaginary world did that happen? Are you telling me that the police in Little Rock, AR knew who the suspect was in a high-profile murder of a TV personality, yet waited for over 3 weeks to announce it because of the election? Really? Are you seriously not capable of figuring out that that’s the stupidest thing said on this blog in at least a month?

    let me guess, the police are corrupt when it comes to brutality on minorities, but it’s not corrupt in the pressely case.

    Police are sometimes corrupt, and sometimes they’re not. Idiocy is believing it’s only one or the other all the time. Thanks for demonstrating how that works.

    Please keep responding. You’re making an amazing ass of yourself. The world record in stupid is well within reach at this point.

    no, my bad, that would never happen in this country…just like someone could never steal 50 billion

    What? Was that supposed to make sense? You’ve posited something that is so absurd, it’s comical. None of the news articles on this case make any mention of anything that even hints at the possibility of what you’re alleging. Do you have a link? I’ve found a post on a white supremacist blog that talks about a coverup. I’ll let you link to that one…

    since you refuse to believe that the police can be corrupt unless its to victimize a minority, let me take a different approach. the murder of ann pressley was given very little coverage in the msm, in contrast , the murder of matthew shepard was wall to wall 24/7. the msmm wants to make all non white,non christian, non hetero oppressed victims.

    Galveston was basically destroyed by Himmicane Ike. I hope this isn’t another Tawana Brawley case. For those who don’t know it, Brawley was Al Sharpton’s leap into fame. He’s never apologized for the lie either. Yet some of you lefties use Al as the spokesperson for downtrodden blacks on this blog. Some of you were gung “ho” with Sharpton when he attacked Don Imus. Puddy tried to tell you this long ago.

    Wow Lee, this is disgusting. And the mayor Lyda Ann Thomas is a Democrat too. So much for compassionate progressivism.

    You can view Galveston’s Finest here

    You can learn all about the police chief

    If this is true, maybe their office of professional standards will finally get off the ASSes and correct this travesty.

    People Eating Tasty Animals picked Oprah Winfrey as their ‘Person of the Year’. My lovely wife gets “O” The Magazine and Oprah is back up to 200 pounds. Oprah used her “powerful voice to defend those without one.” “Eat more meat”. I guess eating those tasty animals are doing her body good!

    I can not believe what I’ve been reading on your blog. You who do not even live in Arkansas, let alone Little Rock spew this garbage. I knew Anne Pressly and I was one of the first news photojournalists on the scene. None of you knows what you are talking about. This case has rocked our world here in ways you can not imagine. All our female reporters are scared to death even though the perp is caught. The was only one’ not two like all you rumor-mill generators have said. You need to stick to talking about things in your own communities. Then maybe you might know what you are talking about. Your blog title says it all. You conspirists out there about this case are a bunch of horses asses!

    Given that much information. That was a travesty of Justice. Those cops should be punished.

    All the rest of you conservatives, stop trying to change the subject.
    Do you secretly support cops beating up 12 year old black girls?

    No, I’ve never said that, not even close. Please try again.

    Bullshit. As I’ve already pointed out, there are 1,319 news results for Anne Pressly. Coverage of her murder was everywhere.

    the msmm wants to make all non white,non christian, non hetero oppressed victims.

    Wanna keep going? Please keep embarrassing yourself some more.

    Just to be clear, the commenter at #1 obviously does not represent this blog. We have open comments, which means that any idiot can leave remarks here. If there’s anything that I’ve written about the Pressly case that’s incorrect, you’re more than welcome to email me (click the link to my name at the top of this post) and let me know.

    IMO opinion this is a very, very sad incident. The officers need to be, at the very least, retrained or taken off duty… Their SA is total shit.

    That said, it’s not so black and white.

    Officers are continually reminded, daily, of the dangers literally lurking around every corner, every traffic stop, every arrest.

    Hey RS, I think your link is broken there, but I don’t think anyone is insinuating that a police officer doesn’t have a dangerous job. That’s obvious. But the thing that bothers me so much about this particular case is the brazenness over which they don’t feel any need to atone for a genuine (and horrible) mistake.

    @22 I see the link didn’t work. Here is most of the story.
    “HOUSTON —

    A man charged in connection with a police officer’s death made his first court appearance on Monday, KPRC Local 2 reported.

    Mabry Joseph Landor III is accused of killing Houston Police Officer Timothy Abernethy on Sunday.

    Houston police said Abernethy, 43, stopped Landor on suspicion of a traffic violation in the 5800 block of Sunforest Drive near West Tidwell Road at about 8:45 a.m. Sunday.

    Detectives said Landor, 28, got out of an SUV and ran though a nearby apartment complex, ran around a corner and hid behind a bin, waiting for Abernathy.

    When Abernethy came around the corner, Landor shot him in the head, investigators said.

    Police said that after the shooting, Landor stood over the dying officer, pointed his gun and tried to shoot Abernethy several more times. “

    Believe me, I do not approve of what was done to that little girl. If it turns out that the officers involved broke from their SOP and acted outside the law, they should be held accountable. My point is that we certainly don’t know all the details…What details did the arresting officers have about the suspects? We don’t know what assumptions they were operating under. Again, all that said, it certainly looks like these officers are in big time trouble, their SA was total FUBAR and that poor girl will never forget what happened to her…..

    I could just as easily say that we don’t know all the details for the story you posted either. That said, I tend to believe that the reality of both stories are pretty close to what they seem: one, an instance of police officers exhibiting completely unreasonable behavior; another, an instance of a police officer being killed in cold blood.

    The fact that both of these things can and do happen in this country isn’t contradictory in any way.

    What details did the arresting officers have about the suspects?

    This is where the Dymond Milburn story is arguably the most damning. Apparently, the officers were looking for white prostitutes when they tried to apprehend Milburn (a 12-year-old black girl). If that’s true, I don’t see how the police have any leg to stand on. We’ll see as this case unfolds.

    Thanks for the discussion, RS.
