if you are from Houston I am sure you already heard the story. Bellaire Police Department is being investigated for racial profiling:
Robbie Tolan was shot in the driveway of his home on Woodstock about 2 a.m. Dec. 31, while Bellaire police were investigating what they thought was a stolen SUV.
The vehicle, in fact, belonged to Tolan.
In its press release, the Bellaire Police Department said an altercation followed, and Sgt. Jeff Cotton used his firearm, striking Tolan once.
Family members say Tolan, who was on the ground, leaned up to protest the officers’ treatment of his mother, who had come outside during the commotion.
Tolan remained hospitalized with a bullet lodged in his liver as of press time.
Tolan’s family members and attorneys, who say the incident arose from racial profiling by Bellaire police, attended the meeting, but they did not address council.
