"These officers should be weighed for what they did on that video tape," Quanell X said. "That's clearly criminal conduct and they should go to jail."
Holley Made National Headlines
Holley's first arrest in March 2010 was captured on surveillance cameras installed at a southwest Houston business. The video showed several Houston police officers kicking and stomping him. Holley was 15 at the time. He was later convicted on a burglary charge and given probation.
Four Houston police officers were fired and charged in connection with the arrest. One of them, Andrew Blomberg, was acquitted last month of official oppression, which sparked outrage by some community leaders. All of the jurors were white.
Three more former officers, Drew Ryser, Phillip Bryan and Raad Hassan will be tried on similar charges.
"One of the reasons the trial of the officers was delayed two years is because of pre-trial publicity. So, that's why I'm going to do everything in my power not to make any commentary that would drive that, " Harris County District Attorney Pat Lykos said when asked about Holley's latest arrest.
"I don't know the facts and circumstances of his arrest, but really, I have no feeling toward it. He's no different than any other suspect that has been arrested for committing some crime," said HPD Chief Charles McClelland.
McClelland said he doesn't think Holley's latest arrest will play a role in any of the officers' upcoming trials.
"Has no connection to the incident where he was arrested and former police officers are on trial. No connection whatsoever," McClelland said.
Holley's attorney in his civil lawsuit against the officers and city agreed.
"I believe that there are damages that were caused by these officers, and I think they should be made to pay for them under the U.S. Constitution," attorney Ben Hall said.
Neighbor called 911 to report burglary
Brandon Scott lives next door to the home that was broken into and said he called 911 when he noticed some suspicious activity.
"I just witnessed a red vehicle pull up in front of my house and I didn't know them," said Scott. "I could see people jumping the fence here into my neighbor's yard."
Another neighbor told KPRC Local 2 the suspects kicked down the door and then were seen throwing the stolen items over the fence.
