Houston police aren't commenting on why they handcuffed a young dancer, took her away from her teachers and turned her over to Child Protective Services. Landry Thompson, 13, had traveled with two of her teachers from Oklahoma for some classes. When cops spotted them napping in their car, they pulled her out and took her away even though the teachers tried to explain they had a notarized letter from her parents giving them guardianship over her during the trip. The fact that her teachers were two black men and Thompson is white probably played no part in the matter.
