Travis County, Texas sheriff Sally Hernandez apologizes for making a video in which she oversees the whipping of her underlings including a black man. Big League Politics exposed this video after a state employee came to us to describe the racial outrage within the ranks that Hernandez sparked with the bizarre training video.
Hernandez, a supporter of sanctuary city status for Austin and opponent of ICE, is experiencing backlash.
The Austin Chronicle reports: “Many of TCSO’s 1,700 employees were not happy to receive this message in their inboxes last week, as Hernandez learned pretty quickly. Less than 24 hours after the email, Hernandez apologized. “I was hoping to demonstrate the change in the row test; all of us having to do it faster,” she wrote to the rank and file on Feb. 7. “I was hoping to communicate that the challenge of rowing a little faster is shared from the head of the agency down, including the head of academy, deputies, officers, and cadets, but that we could do it together.” One county source called it a “failed attempt” at bonding with staff.”
Travis County sheriff Sally Hernandez is sparking outrage in Texas over her new video in which she presides over the “whipping” of her officers, including a black man.
“Nothing like images of slavery and whips during Black History Month right after Virginia,” said a Texas state employee who provided the video to Big League Politics and said that he/she was “appalled” by the image.
Hernandez is a lightning rod of political controversy for campaigning against cooperating with ICE, and crusading for Austin’s sanctuary city status, earning her the nickname “Sanctuary Sally” from Republicans.
The unlisted video from the Travis County Sheriff’s Office shows Hernandez overseeing the whipping of people after a clip from the movie “Ben-Hur.” That video is now unavailable on Youtube, having been removed by its user.
Don’t worry, we preserved it:

BREAKING: Roger Stone is a Free Man, President Trump Commutes Sentence
The story is developing.
On July 10, 2020, commentator John Cardillo reported that conservative operative Roger Stone received a commutation of his prison sentence from President Donald Trump.

Over the past few days, President Trump has considered commuting Roger Stone’s sentence a few days prior to his report to prison.
Stone is expected to report to a federal prison in Jesup, Georgia by July 14 where he will serve out a three year and four month prison sentence for allegedly lying under oath to U.S. elected officials during the politically contrived Russian interference investigation.
Trump has had a relationship with the Republican political operative for decades.
For some time, Trump has discussed the potential of commuting Stone’s sentence.
When asked by reporters earlier on July 10 about reports of his plan to pardon Stone, Trump remarked, “I’ll be looking at it. I think Roger Stone was very unfairly treated, as were many people.”
Reuters reported that back in November 2019, a “Washington jury convicted Stone on all seven criminal counts of obstruction of a congressional investigation, five counts of making false statements to Congress and tampering with a witness.”
The same report added that “Stone was convicted for lying to the House of Representatives Intelligence Committee about his attempts to contact WikiLeaks, the website that released damaging emails about Trump’s 2016 Democratic election rival Hillary Clinton that U.S. intelligence officials have concluded were stolen by Russian hackers.”
Stone’s commutation, while not a full-blown pardon that erases his conviction, is a solid victory for the Rule of Law.
