Unequal Protection Under the Law

If you wanted a summary of how the Texas “criminal” justice system works, here’s a snapshot.

If you’re a uniformed police officer and badged bully, your assault charges get dropped, you get months of paid “administrative leave” sitting at home, and eventually forced to endure two weeks of unpaid “punishment.”

If you’re a citizen simply walking down the wrong side of the road, you have a gun stuck to your head, you’re illegally disarmed, thrown in jail, forced to endure TWO trials because they were adamant about teaching you a lesson, and finally keep changing the charges until they can convict you of that you weren’t even arrested for.

From the Temple Daily Telegram:

Temple Police Sgt. Thomas Menix received a 15-day suspension without pay effective Monday in connection with a Class C misdemeanor assault charge brought against him by the Port Aransas Police Department, Temple City Secretary Lacy Borgeson reported Tuesday.

Menix, a 27-year veteran of the Temple Police Department was arrested on April 16 while he was off duty. A Port Aransas Police Department incident report said Menix was intoxicated and bit a woman.

One of the responding officers to my false arrest and illegal disarming was SGT Thomas Menix (pictured above left). One of the statements he made during the assault and abuse of authority was, “we’re exempt from the law.” Turns out he was right. There is a separate standard between law enforcement and their citizenry subjects. So much for “equal protection under the law.”
