Texas Deputy Charged for Slapping Man after telling Man to Slap him First

Carlos Miller

Harris County sheriff's deputy Ellison Collins was indicted by a grand jury Tuesday on a misdemeanor assault charge.

A Texas sheriff's deputy has been indicted by a grand jury for slapping a 61-year-old man who had attempted to slap him first.

The only problem is, Harris County sheriff's deputy Ellison Collins told the man to slap him, acting as if he would not arrest him.

And the man was naive enough to believe him.

“I am giving you permission to slap the (s- - - -) out of me, and get it off your chest,” the deputy says after the man asked if he would be arrested.

When Jerry Alan Vaco raised his hand and moved it close to the deputy's face, Collins slapped him so hard he fell down. Collins then handcuffed him.

"That was stupid," Collins tells the man as he leads him away in handcuffs.

The incident took place in September 2018 in front of an IHOP restaurant after Collins encountered Vaco in the parking lot. It is not clear at this time why Collins confronted Vaco in the first place but it took more than a year to complete the investigation on Collins.

The video shows Vaco may not have even touched the deputy after he slowly lifted his hand towards Collins' face.

Court records show Vaco was charged with interference but the case was dismissed. He has a history of trespassing arrests so perhaps that had something to do the deputies confronting him in the first place.

The deputy, who has been on "non-law enforcement administrative duty" since the incident, is facing up to a year in jail and a $4,000 fine, according to the Houston Chronicle.

Collins' bodycam was turned off during the incident but another deputy had his turned on which is what led to the charge against the deputy.

This is why we are in this mess today... Sadistic, psychotic scum that think they can get away with anything they want. How do people with such deep psychological problems get jobs in law enforcement so easily??? Treat my family member like that scumbag and see what happens to you. Results of a trial will be the least of your worries.

And I suppose the other two were the "good cops"...

For anyone who thinks this is “white privilege at its finest “ GET OUT OF THAT VICTIM MINDSET this has nothing to do with race! Someone always has to make it out to be racial white and black cops both do these Horrific things and this is proof Right here that it isn’t just white cops and there is plenty more proof don’t believe me? Look it up! And to defend the cop because he’s black is just wrong! And anyone with the right mind would agree. Stop making a generation worse then it already is.

Aggravated attempted murder. If the old guy didnt go down and instead kicked the lying cop in the nuts for that battery, he'd be dead. Life without parole,, or wait 20 years and have a chat with one of his kids about daddy.

ONLY a WHITE person would have the AUDACITY to ASSAULT a POLICE OFFICER when asked.

WHITE PRIVILEGE at its finest.

The trolls and comments OF SELF ENTITLED WHITES if the officer was WHITE and the slapped man was
BLACK.

Smh

White privileged doesn’t exist and this video is proof. You have a black officer and a old homeless white guy. You’re seriously either racist or brainwashed. When I saw this video I didn’t even think about skin color. I couldn’t imagine being so racist and ideologically possessed, to live every situation in my life through skin color. Wow. People like you are the problem in the world.

Dudes last name is Vaco man... Seems like there's some underlining prejudice going on with your thought process. It shouldn't be what color someone is. It's about what the evidence shows. Which, from what I've seen, shows a full grown man who was appointed a position that dictates he shall serve and protect the rest, asking to be slapped and then using the power he was appointed to be a complete child about it. The race of Mr. Vaco has nothing to do with it. You should look at the whole parade from over the top of the fence, not just through the hole you're looking through bud.

Only a black person would justify a cop entrapping an old man to hit him- actually bullying him into “hitting” him- and then slapping him. You think just because white cops are a holes, it’s ok for black cops to be? How about this? If a cop tells u to put ur hands up or commands something-do it. Just do it. Funny how my bff was just shot 20x unarmed by policeman but no one protested. Why? Bc he’s white. Look at stats. Look at how many white people are assaulted and shot by cops. My friend was 6’7” and acting crazy so they shot him. See, I’m not white but under the circumstances I understand it was needed to shoot him, not 20x but it had to be done. I’m sick of black people thinking that it’s ok for things to be done to other people just bc it happens to them. Reality check. It happens to everyone too. All I hear now is how black people are held down by the man and that’s why they can’t succeed. I’m nowhere near white and I had more of a disadvantage so how is it that I made it? When my black friends I grew up with try to blame white people for their failures I remind them how we had counselors who did events to show us scholarships and gov funding or how our principal arranged free college tours. No. White people are not the reason ur being held back. What do u think ur ancestors would think if they went to Chicago? Lemme guess.. it’s white people forcing u guys to shoot each other. Michele Obama said when blacks started to move into the hood whites moved out. Well, guess what? I did a before and after crime stats comparison and do u blame them? It went from 1% petty crime to that hood having 10 murders per year. Yeah, white people dont want to deal with that. This is the only country where black people blame their lives on everyone and slavery. Slavery still exists btw and Africans sold other Africans to White people. Jewish people had the Holocaust and now own the world. Why were they able to make it? Before moving to the hood, I came from a hut in a 3rd world country. How is it I can learn English at 10, live in a black neighborhood and one of the worst in NYC, still be able to go to an Ivy League school and become self made? How? I’m dark. I’m mistaken for African American.

Now y’all see how dumb and stupid he was,now the other cops kept their cameras on and their cameras are being used against him but you see how the white cops weren’t going to go all out for his black behind like those white cops stood behind Jason Van Dyke but none of them was charged with conspiracy and I’ll bet anybody that he stood around and allowed the white cops to do what he did to the white guy do to black citizens though but either way he should be charged with felony assault because unless my eyes were playing tricks on me,that was an old white guy and if he gets jail time I hope that they put him in population because those fellows hate guys who beat old folks and children whether they’re cops or not throw him away along with the key I couldn’t give a dam.😡😎
