On May 28, a 24 year old man was beaten and choked outside of a Denny’s restaurant in Houston, Texas. The victim, John Hernandez, was confronted by Terry Thompson after Hernandez was caught urinating outside. Thompson began beating Hernandez, who was very drunk at the time so didn’t put up much of a fight, and got him on the ground in a choke hold. Thompson’s wife Chauna, a cop, helped Terry restrain the victim who at this point was kicking and gurgling. Witnesses, including the victim’s wife and 3 year old child, were begging the couple to stop and let the man go but the two wouldn’t listen. Hernandez was taken to the hospital where he died three days later from his injuries. According to the autopsy he died of strangulation and chest compression. Terry and Chauna Thompson have been charged with murder and could face anywhere from 5 years to life in prison.
Clearly, this Terry guy had some anger issues and his wife being a cop should mean something but we’ve all seen videos of cops being too aggressive so she’s probably one of ‘those’ types. I’m not sure what pissed him off so much that a guy was peeing outside. I imagine his wife said something and the guy being drunk probably said fuck off or some shit and next thing Hernandez knows he’s on the ground. It’s sad that a guy who was essentially minding his own business dies like that especially in front of his little girl who I’m sure will be scarred for life. Honestly, the thing that pisses me off the most about this video is the stupid dipshits trying to block the camera saying it’s illegal to film. Filming on public property is not illegal and perhaps if they had put that energy into helping the guy being choked to death they could’ve saved a life instead of being annoying as shit. Plus it’s a good thing the guy did film it as it was used as evidence to charge these two assholes. I think people need to learn when something is worth fighting over and when they should just walk away. The drunk guy pissing outside of a Denny’s is rude and gross but he would’ve been done and on his way but because these two ‘heroes’ had to come in and save the day they’re now looking at a potential life sentence.
