Hate Hoax: Childish Texas State Rep Garnet Coleman Falsely Accuses Deputy of Treating Him Like a Child
Yet again a phony allegation implying racism is spoiled by a police dash cam:
The Austin County Sheriff’s Office released the dash camera video of a July 14 traffic stop of State Representative Garnet Coleman Tuesday to refute claims Coleman made last week about being disrespected and treated “like a child.”
Coleman, as the chair of the Committee on County Affairs, held a hearing last Thursday in Austin as the first public inquiry into the arrest and death of Sandra Bland in Waller County. In that hearing, The Houston Democrat recounted his own history of being pulled over in traffic stops and gave this account of an I-10 traffic stop that happened just two weeks ago.
“He talked to me like I was a child,” he said of the sheriff’s deputy who pulled him over for speeding. “He was so rude and nasty. Even when he found out I was a legislator, he became more rude and nasty. And I didn’t understand why this guy was continuing to go on and on and treat me like a child. And basically like I’m saying is treat me like a boy. I want to be very clear about that,” Coleman said in the committee hearing.
Use of the charged word “boy” drives home the racial implications. Coleman is of course a Democrat and black.
Maybe the deputy treated Coleman like a child because he behaves like one — or maybe he didn’t treat Coleman like a child at all.
This week the Austin County Sheriff’s Office revealed to KHOU 11 News that one of its deputies made that traffic stop near Sealy on the morning of July 14. And Austin County Sheriff Jack Brandes released the dash cam video of the stop to let the public decide for themselves if his deputy did anything wrong.
“I think the video shows exactly what happened,” Brandes said. “I saw nothing that indicated that he put forth any disrespect whatsoever,” Brandes said of the Austin County Sheriff’s sergeant who made the traffic stop.
Despite having been proven a liar, Coleman declines to apologize.
Not only did the deputy treat Coleman with far more respect than he appears to warrant, he let him go with a warning despite having clocked him at 94 mph in a 75 mph zone, and despite a previous speeding violation having come up on his computer when he entered the license number on the State Rep’s official plate. You see the thanks he gets.
Rep Coleman helpfully demonstrates that the only appropriate response to attempts by politically privileged moonbats to club us over the head with their hypersensitivity is laughter. The thanks he gets is a spot on the Hate Hoax List.
