The department issued these officers old and deteriorated beanbag rounds,” attorney Doug O’Connell told Fox News. “So rather than coming out as a soft beanbag they came out as a hardened projectile…so you had rioters who were seriously injured by these beanbags and it shouldn’t have happened but it’s not the officersfault it’s management’s fault.

It’s probably a very righteous personal injury case,” O’Connell added. “But it doesn’t make the officersactions illegal or a criminal offense.

Justin Berry, a Republican candidate for the Texas House of Representatives and one of the officers charged by Garza, 말했다 Fox News this week he believes the case is politically motivated.

This has nothing to do with justice, has nothing do with any wrongdoing,” Berry said. “This is simply about politics and a political agenda that has taken place with these radical liberal district attorneys.

We were responding to a riot,” Berry added. “People throwing Molotov cocktails at us, frozen water bottles, bottles filled with urine, bottles full of gasoline, and they were engaging in criminal activity by obstructing the passage road that goes to the main hospital.
