As you may be aware the Hurst Police Department placed Officer Arnold 654 on Administrative leave. Here is what they agreed to do at our meeting,
1. Conduct a thourough investigation, reviewing all videos, dispatch reports, other officer testimony, testimony of all witness present and reviewing the Rojas Video.
2. Assured the family that there would be no retailiation against the family by any entity associated with the Hurst PD and or City of Hurst.
3. That upon completion of the Investigation, and the evidence, (and we believe that the video speaks for itself), shows that Officer Arnold assaulted the victim, that the Hurst Police Department would refer the matter to the Tarrant County District Attorney and we are prepared to take it to the United States Attorney, if need be..
The formal complaint will be filed on Wednesday and we expect the process to take its course. The Mother, Kelly Pope was present today at the meeting with Chief Steve Moore.
In closing, the Chief and his staff were courteous and gracious, we appreciate their immediate response.
To the more than 300,000 people and everyone who seen glimpses of it on the major news channel who have seen the video, share it on YouTube, Twitter or Facebook and have commented about it, together we all made a difference and to Jordan, you did a great job for your friend.
