WARNING: The video is graphic and very disturbing.
Johnny Hernandez was choked to death by the husband of Harris County Sheriff Deputy. Terry Thompson puts a chokehold on Johnny Hernandez killing him. He hasn’t been arrested. The Hernandez family deserves justice for their loved one. There would be no need for a Grand Jury if a Black or Muslim was caught on video choking someone to death, the person would’ve been in jail immediately. The deputy, Shauna Thompson, was right there as her husband was choking the life from Johnny Hernandez and did not stop it. I see her as an accessory to murder. LOCK THEM UP!
HOUSTON — A 24-year-old father reportedly beaten by the husband of a Texas sheriff’s deputy died after being taken off life support Wednesday night, the family lawyer confirmed Thursday.
Johnny Hernandez had been in the intensive care unit of a Houston hospital where he was declared brain dead.
Late Sunday night, Hernandez’s family stopped at a Denny’s restaurant in Crosby, Texas, in east Harris County. Hernandez was drunk after celebrating his beloved Chivas soccer team’s victory, his wife said. She insisted he have coffee.
Instead, surveillance cameras showed Hernandez walking outside with his wife trying to stop him. She said her husband urinated near their vehicle.
Hernandez’s wife is not being named as she was too afraid to show her face in an on-camera interview.
Another man, whose wife is a Harris County (Texas) Sheriff’s deputy, was outside Denny’s with his children and confronted Hernandez about his behavior. Video showed the two men scuffling.
People ran outside while Hernandez’s wife and 3-year-old daughter watched and screamed.
“She was crying and telling (the man beating Hernandez) stop and he didn’t even stop,” Hernandez’s wife said. “I told him please stop. Don’t do that to him. He’s drunk. He wasn’t in any position to fight. But, he didn’t have any compassion. He was really angry.”
Hernandez’s wife claims deputies took her cellphone then led her away for interviews. Three days later, her husband was still in intensive care before he was eventually taken off life support.
The report given to the family called the man who beat Hernandez the victim.
In a statement, a spokesman for the Harris County Sheriff’s Office said the matter is under investigation.
