VIDEO: Rep. Jackson Tackled by Officers

The video of the incident that took place at the rodeo attended by Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-TX) finally has some body cam footage to match the incident, reported the Texas Tribune.

Unfortunately, the officer’s camera was muted for most of the interaction, only turned on when Jackson really started to lose it.

Based on the images and the post by the girl’s mother, I would say these officers used a bit of fiction to fill out their report.

Who Is Right?

Now, before I get into this, let me say that while I understand why Jackson was so upset, as an elected official, he needs to hold it together a bit more as well as not threatening to call the governor.

Aside from that, there is definitely something hokey about what the police reports stated.

The backdrop to this is that a young girl has collapsed at the rodeo and Jackson was right there when it happened.

He immediately tried to see if he could help, as he stated there were no EMT services right there at the time.

In the video, you can see Jackson talking to the girl and her mother, as well as an officer that was there.

Then, all of a sudden, Jackson gets pushed away, eventually tackled by the officers.

Now this is a man that has treated several presidents, so it is not like he is some random idiot using YouTube for treatment ideas…

The officers claimed they asked him several times to move away, but just from the video, you cannot see anything like that happening until the EMTs came on scene.

Most outlets concentrated on the language that was used by Jackson and completely ignored the fact the mother made a post on Facebook after the incident defending Jackson.

Jackson responded, “I’m glad the video is out. It shows the incompetence of the authorities and their complete disregard for the young girl in distress.

“We have the best Sheriffs in the country here in the panhandle and north Texas. Unfortunately, the Sheriff in Carson County is not among them.

“I will apologize for my language, but I will not apologize for getting upset & speaking my mind considering the circumstances.

“If I had to do it again, I would still step up & act in a life-threatening situation. I will ALWAYS help someone in need. I WILL NOT apologize for that,” reported The Hill.

As I noted above, it is unfortunate the officer had his camera on mute because that would have cleared this entire mess up.
