Let’s stay away from doing drugs, kids.
Plenty of people deserve to get slapped in the face, but I think everyone can agree that this cop didn’t deserve it. And yet, that’s exactly what happened to one cop who was trying to handle a naked dude at Houston’s Fannin South Transit Center.
The video below shows the naked guy, 49-year-old Keith L. Dean popping out of a train to spray stolen pesticide onto the face of an officer moments before slapping the hell out of him. The cop actually manages to stay on his feet, and then proceeds to Tase Dean. This encounter was caught on film. Kudos to the person who filmed this for filming it horizontally.
Take a look.
As you can see from the video above the cop even asks Dean if he’s OK, which is rare — usually a cop will beat the hell out of the guy. So this is a nice change.
Here’s what the Houston Police Department had to say about the situation.
“We commend these two officers for their actions in bringing a volatile situation to a safe conclusion. The male clearly struck our officer, who in turn used sound [judgment] in holding his composure and gaining control of the scene … thanks to assistance from his partner.”
Dean remains jailed after being arrested and charged with two counts of assault on a public servant.
We need more cops like this — you know a cop that doesn’t enjoy beating the hell out of a convict once they are down and out.
