Meet Keithan Manuel. He’s what we in the police business would call a “dumbass.”
Keithan Manuel is sitting inside the Dallas County Jail Tuesday night waiting for someone to believe him – it was a joke, he told investigators. Police, however, say the 18-year-old walked into the Wilmer Police Department Saturday evening with a white towel covering his hands.
Police Chief Victor Kemp described the incident saying, “[A] young man approached the dispatch window there and told our Communications Officer ‘give me all your money. He said he’d like to check on a warrant, but he gave a different name and after a few moments of maybe playing it off he said ‘you do know I have a gun’.”
Unfortunately, they didn’t take him down hard enough, because he’s not covered in bruises. What is the world coming to when Texas officers use restraint? /snark
