|Emanuel Hurd, LandryThompson, and Josiah Kelly|
Today KHOU reports that Houston police (HPD) has finally responded to their actions. HPD said, “Given the age discrepancies between all involved, the fact that all three were from out of state, and the child had no relatives in the area … officers, in an abundance of caution, did their utmost to ensure her safety.
My only problem with this is the age of the young girl sleeping in a car with two men who are not related to her - one almost 10 years older and the other twice her age + three years. I commend the police for questioning these two. ..no matter what color they are. If you think differently then you are a bad parent. What if it had been these two guys:
A man has been arrested for kidnapping and sexual assaulting a 14-year-old Texas girl who was trick-or-treating with her friends on Halloween, while his alleged accomplice is still at large.Eric Bonilla, 23, was arrested on November 1, the day after Halloween, for abducting the young girl allegedly with the help of another man, Daryl Wayne Mayberry, 28.
Documents state the girl was held by the pair for 10 hours before she was released in the early morning hours of November 1, after which she walked to her school where she was reunited with her parents. [...]Houston police say they found a police-type jacket and police patches in the vehicle...
One year's difference in their ages. Rape happened in same area of town where Landry Thompson was pulled out of a car and questioned with two black men. The above happened exactly one month before.
According to Destiny, Thompson travels all the time for dance performances, and she willingly placed Hurd in charge of her daughter. Destiny even provided Hurd with official documents, such as her daughter’s original birth certificate, insurance card, and a signed letter of consent from both she and her husband just in case there was some question or unforseen situation that would require such documentation to be produced.
First of all, this guy was not and is not her legal guardian. Her mother put her 13 year old daughter on a plane, alone, and therefore had to provide documentation to the Airlines in the form of a birth certificate and paperwork assigning someone as a temporary guardian to pick her up from the airport.
Reported crime for ONE month, October 2013, in the Memorial Park area where the two grown ass men and a little girl were sleeping in their car.
The mother of this child should be investigated - she has no qualms allowing her 13 year old daughter to sleep in a hotel with two grown men? Really? I have a feeling Emanuel Cross Hurd is trying to promote a video...one only has to look at his facebook page to see it.
These three have already told a few different stories...
Landry Thompson, 13, has been dancing since she was 7. For the past few years, she has dreamed of traveling to Houston to dance with well-known hip hop dancer Chachi Gonzales at Planet Funk Academy.Over the weekend, Thompson's parents, instructor and dance partner made her dream come true. Landry flew to Houston from her Tulsa, Okla., home on Saturday and met up with Hurd, 29, and her dance partner Josiah Kelly, 22.The three spent the day at the dance academy and taking part in a video shoot. After wrapping and dinner, the exhausted trio stopped at a gas station around 3 a.m. to program their GPS to find their hotel, according to Hurd. He dozed off and awoke to find their car surrounded by police."Everything was going amazing. It was a beautiful day .... and then everything went bad," Hurd told ABCNews.com today.Hurd and Kelly were pulled out of the car and police told them not to worry, they weren't be arrested, just detained, Hurd said.Hurd had forms from Landry's mother making him her guardian for the duration of the trip, her birth certificate and her insurance card, among other forms, which he said he tried to tell the officers.

Chachi Gonzales has mentioned NOTHING about this incident on her twitter feed.
The mother of a white teen who was taken away from her black legal guardians by Houston police officers is questioning the actions of the police.13-year-old Landry Thompson, from Oklahoma, was in the care of her two legal guardians, who are black, when she was snatched by police after the trio arrived in Houston for dance training.Dance instructor Emmanuel Hurd, his boyfriend, Josiah Kelly, and Landry were tired after a long day at the dance studio. The trio stopped at a gas station to get directions back to their hotel. After dozing off in the car, they awoke to find the car surrounded by police.“They just pulled us out of the car and put our hands behind our backs like we were criminals,” Hurd told KHOU. “The officer asked me ‘who’s the girl?’ and I said ‘she’s my student.’”
Amazing workshop with the one and only ChaChi on Planet Funk! Thanks so much to everyone who came out today! http://t.co/EtoNRnJSzr

Planet Funk thanked everyone at 9:24 that evening for coming out...the class was finished. Nothing at all on this story.
Landry Thompson Instagram: "Just a little white girl trying to be a thug."

No video shoot on Saturday and the last dance class was at 2:49 P.M.
I'm gonna be choosing a few dancers to film my new axi episode that I am filming on Monday. So come out to class tomorrow at @PLANETFUNKtx!Having said all that....11 hours seems excessive to have held them. I will post the police report in the next couple of days.
