VIDEO: Houston PD's Arrest of Teen Burglary Suspect
A teenage burglary suspect who accused four Houston Police officers of beating him during a 2010 burglary arrest allegedly committed another burglary less than two months after finishing probation.
In May, a jury acquitted former officer Andrew Blomberg on a misdemeanor charge of official oppression, prompting black community leaders to criticize the verdict by an all-white jury as unjust and racist, reports ABC News.
The initial arrest of the now-18-year-old Chad Holley, who was 15 at the time, caused an outcry among community activists after video of the incident was broadcast by a local news channel.
Holley's latest arrest could imperil the cases prosecutors will argue against the other three officers.

It sounds like the black activists are the real racists here as they excuse the behavior of the youngster based solely on his skin color.
