(DALLAS YBW) - A man who is a self-described “Texas Redneck” says that he has been harassed repeatedly by Texas police because his granddaughter is black. Scott Henson often volunteers to babysit his granddaughter and claims that he is the victim of “babysitting while white.” On his blog, “Grits for Breakfast”. Henson says that police have been racially-profiling he and his granddaughter for years, and getting very aggressive when they come after him.

This week, Henson was handcuffed and detained by police. His granddaughter was separated from him after someone called and said that they saw a black girl being kidnapped by a white man. Henson admits that when officers stop him, he is terse and impatient with them. He says that he is insulted that they are asking him questions just because his granddaughter is of a different race and that he has no obligation to stop.

Mr. Henson is a retired political consultant and journalist who runs a blog about the Texas criminal justice system.

He describes his last encounter with police and his granddaughter, whom he refers to as “Ty.”

Ty edged up the hill away from the officers, crying. One of them called out in a comforting tone that they weren’t there to hurt her, but another officer blew up any good will that might have garnered by brusquely snatching her up and scuttling her off to the back seat of one of the police cars,” he wrote.

Henson also says that officers refused to call his wife and other who can verify the relationship. He was eventually released with apologies, but there is no word if he is going to file any kind of legal action.

Wow, so no one of any color can be with a black person...or you'll be harrased. I praise you for standing your gound...

Frankly I consider some on this site as domestic terrorists and have literally hundreds of combined articles/comments to assert that evaluation. It is my goal to see them tried for both Sedition and Treason. My fervent prayer is that it is through the UCMJ (for civilian terrorists) and the death penalty applies. Anyone who knowingly supports Iran is at the very least, a criminal...

Editor: That was a good one, any other humor

This IP address: was traced to the short term parking area of Chicago's O'Hara Airport. This is an area, like thousands of other areas in the world, that have literally hundreds of WIFI signals that anyone can hook into. So did this poster threaten your life? If you only post what you decide to post and it is not automatically put on your site, then what's the problem? I suggest that if you are so easily offended, then have people register to post. Keep in mind that anyone can create a false idenity and create an IP number/address. This is not illegal for posting unless there in some kind of fraud. Posting comments is pretty benign. Maybe you should get some thicker skin? Considering that you put out provocative and highly misleading articles coupled with creative postings that augment your fantasies, you really should just not post those items that you cannot deal with. If someone threatens you, then sure law enforcement can monitor. Of course you don't like law enforcement do you? So what did this person write that was so scawee?

Editor: Well you're just a shade better than that idiot, of course you speculate at 120 MPH and have plenty to say about it don't you?  This story is where the threatening comment was made, about the little girl who is Black, WTF back to you?  Not that I expect a person who says the crap you spit out to be a defender of children, but I have news for you... threats are not like other things, this person is a racist and talks like a terrorist, people don't have a right to do things like this. It's all funny to you, maybe it won't always be?

My God, this is like a horrible act against nature, against God's rul......

Editor: This is a dangerous individual who needs to be investigated by the FBI for making threats toward people, his IP is and any agents who are interested can write to me at tim@salem-news.comAlso, if one of our high tech readers can run this IP and get me a name and address, I'd appreciate it so we can turn this guy in, and post it publicly, thanks.
