Houston Police have refused to explain why they took a 13-year-old white girl from her two black guardians over the weekend and placed her in the custody of Child Protective Services.

Landry Thompson’s mother had signed notarized papers giving dance instructor Emmanuel Hurd full guardianship over her during a trip from Oklahoma to Houston for training,according to KHOU.

Thompson, Hurd and another dance instructor had stopped at a gas station in Houston on Saturday night when they were surrounded by police cars.

Thompson is a 13-year-old blonde white girl and both dance instructors are young African-American men.

“We were on the GPS trying to figure out where the hotel was,” Hurd recalled. “They just pulled us out of the car and put our hands behind our backs like we were criminals.”

“The officer asked me ‘who’s the girl?’ and I said ‘she’s my student,’” Hurd continued. “I told him I had a notarized letter from her parents stating that we have full guardianship over her while we’re here.”

All three told the police the same story, but the officers apparently weren’t buying it.

“They still put handcuffs on me and it really scared me,” the 13-year-old said. “And they put me in the back of a cop car and I was terrified.”

Thompson’s mother, Destiny, was shocked when she found out that her daughter had been placed in the care of Child Protective Services.

“She was with the people I wanted her to be with,” the mother remarked. “She was with people I trusted. And now she was taken away from those people and in a shelter with people I didn’t know.”

At first officials reportedly demanded that the mother fly to Houston to get her daughter, but 11 hours later, the girl was released back into the custody of Hurd.

Destiny Thompson insisted that the police owed her and her daughter an apology. However, the department refused to comment for KHOU’s report.

Someone should probably tell them Rosa Parks ended racism.

i doubt anyone in my area will see this but just in case
this is our housecat, squishy. he’s an escape artist, and seems to have slipped out of the house recently. We didn’t realize he was missing until this morning, because usually he stays in my brother’s room.
We can’t offer a reward because we don’t have any money to give, but please if you live in the Lewisivlle/Flower Mound area, please please please keep an eye out for this cat. He’s not an outdoor cat!!
The phone number showing is mine. Please keep calls serious.

Signal boost!

Please see previous post. Also per this post, my blog, my choice.

texanpearl said: Not a question really, more of a statement. Just saw that liberal post... TX is a red state and should stay that way... So that'll be an unfollow. Cant follow a TX page that isn't really Texan... Its a shame really that you're a typical name calling liberal.

Oh gee whiz. You must have been new around here too because we clearly encourage lively, intelligent debate. Too bad you didn’t stick around because we love that Texans come in all shapes and sizes, range up and down the whole political spectrum and are a vocal bunch- though I think we can all agree that chili ain’t got no beans.

“It’s hard to look people int eh eye and say they don’t have a job anymore — not because of anything they, or we, did in correctly or because we weren’t caring for women in a fabulous way.”

Around one dozen clinics in Texas have shut down or stopped offering abortions after Republicans in the state successfully pushed through legislation that requires doctors performing procedures to have admitting privileges at local hospitals.

Other laws in neighboring states — such as laws requiring the widening of hallways or the installation of high-tech surgical sinks — have caused abortion clinics to fire workers and shut down.

Legislation in Republican-controlled states counts for half of the 73 clinic closures since 2011. The people hardest hit by the shifting laws: Poor and minority women.

Women who live near McAllen, Texas — many of them poor — will now have to drive 150 miles to Corpus Christi if they want an abortion. Their other option: The local flea market, where illegal do-it-yourself drugs cost around $15 a pill.

Republicans have stopped challenging Roe vs. Wade. Their new tactic: Make it harder to get an abortion. So far, their strategy is working.

Affordable contraception + sex education= fewer abortions.

Decrease the need not the availability, asshats.
