Not This S%#& Again!

This is police officer Eric Casebolt, who neck slammed a 14 year old Black girl and held her on the ground with a knee on her back. He also drew his weapon on two unarmed Black teens.  I know...I know...He was afraid for his life right?

A Texas police officer has been placed on administrative leave ,which means he is sitting at a desk, still drawing a paycheck,after a video surfaced on social media of him pushing a teenage girl to the ground and pulling a gun on another teenager at a pool party.

A seven-minute YouTube video shows a police officer using profanity and aggressively throwing a 15-year-old girl in a bathing suit to the ground, face-down. He then appeared to pin her down with his knees.
The girl can be heard screaming, "I want to call my mom. He hit me."

McKinney police spokeswoman Sabrina Boston said the incident involved "multiple juveniles at the location, who do not live in the area or have permission to be there, refusing to leave."

She said additional units were dispatched after the first officers to arrive "encountered a large crowd that refused to comply with police commands."

Brooks specified that the chaos began with a fight between a white woman and a 19-year-old black woman.

Speaking to reporters on Sunday afternoon, police Chief Greg Conley asked citizens to be patient and to respect the investigative process.

"A (teenage) female was temporarily detained by one of the officers," police Chief Greg Conley told reporters on Sunday afternoon. "She was ultimately released to her parents."

The girl's family told WFAA-TV that the girl is 15 years old.

A dozen police officers eventually responded to the disturbance.

"Several concerns about the conduct of one of the officers at the scene have been raised," Conley said. "The McKinney Police Department is committed to treating all persons fairly under the law. We are committed to preserving the peace and safety of our community for all our citizens."
Conley did not name the suspended officer.But I will..His name is Officer Eric Casebolt.

Brandon Brooks, who posted the unedited video clip titled Cops Crash Pool Party on Saturday, wrote that "this kind of force is uncalled for, especially on children and innocent bystanders."
In an e-mail to USA TODAY College, Brooks said he felt "invisible" to the cops and that he recorded the incident to demand department accountability: "I knew that what the cops were doing was wrong and that the video could hopefully provide some evidence to someone."

The story you won't hear...The other side...was that this was a graduation party and that the black students had been invited there by a black tenent who lived in the development....The party was mixed...It wasn't just black kids...It was Black and White and Mexican kids....

Most of the kids...DID IN FACT COMPLY, when told to stand down....The Black teenager who got into a fight with the white woman was slapped by the woman ,who then allegedly said-''Why don't you all go back to where you come from." Did she mean Africa or from a few blocks away?  Maybe she meant both...But the media has blocked that part of the story completely out....

This isn't new...This isn't the first time these things have been happening...It's just that we didn't live in a social media world before where so much can be filmed and put out into the world so quickly...

I'm certain there is a lot more to the story than what is even being reported here...I'm just tired...I'm tired of having to write these stories so much....

I'm sick of racism...I'm sick of the lies...I'm sick ,sick,sick of it all!   When does it all end?
