It was just an example, you still can ask your questions there - "is it right for human being to be stuck between two fast, large, strong, powerful horses? Could you do it? How many seconds?"...

Marching people behind a horse apparently is a standard practice in the US. Don't ask ME why, I don't know (and I don't really care that much).

its NOT standard practice, not since the western days

Do you have proof, link or any relevant argument supporting your claim?

Have a look at this demonstration:

Sure it is. Just as referring to people of colour as Negroes and insisting they work in the cotton fields is standard practice. But only if you are a stuck in the past racist.

For the 5-th time, from the article: "... this is a trained technique and best practice in some scenarios...".

Would you have said anything if it was not a black guy? 

Probably yes, but it has more serious connotations with it being a black man..

That full quote from the article again:

‘Although this is a trained technique and best practice in some scenarios, I believe our officers showed poor judgement in this instance and could have waited for a transport unit at the location of the arrest.’

Which doesn't contradict that it's a standard practice, thanks for reminding.

You haven't posted anything to indicate that what happened was one of the "some scenarios". We do have a police chief saying "our officers showed poor judgement in this instance" though.

I'm not disputing poor judgement, I'm not qualified for that, perhaps there was more suitable option, perhaps not. I also haven't seen any serious negative consequences of this practice and I don't think it's a big issue worth discussing and turning into racism talks.
