A Houston cop was caught on camera begging a black female security guard to put down her cell phone and help him subdue a robbery suspect who was fighting him as he was arresting him.
“Stop f*cking filming and help me!” the officer shouts at the woman, but she instead continued recording his actions.
This is the world we live in now… great example of a sheep in sheepdog clothing. Just because you wear a uniform does not make you courageous. Great job by the officer, as far as the security officer…find a new line of work that accepts cowards!

Houston police arrested Davon Shavelle Miller, who was driving a car connected to an aggravated robbery and shooting in Harris County, KPRC-TV reported.
According to the NBC affiliate, Miller, 17, jumped from the vehicle and fled and was fighting with the officer who had chased him down.
A number of bystanders begged the suspect to stop resisting, reassuring him that the officer was not going to kill him because they are all recording.
“This guy is absolutely a threat. He had a pistol in his car that his girlfriend actually wrapped in a towel and threw it in the bushes while our officer (was) fighting with him,” Joe Gamaldi, president of the Houston Police Officers’ Union, told KPRC-TV.
“Not only that — you watch the video. He’s grabbing our officer’s gun,” Gamaldi said.
Even though Miller can be heard on the video saying he didn’t grab the officer’s gun, he appears to be reaching for and can be seen touching the weapon toward the end of the video.
But the actions of a black security guard was most egregious. Gamaldi took to social media after the incident to report that the woman has been fired.
“Update to the story that has been making the rounds the past 2 days. I contacted security company that employed the security guard. They handled the issue swiftly, she is no longer employed w/the company. In addition they expressed their love, support, admiration for HPD officers,” he tweeted.
