Eric Casebolt

Once again, a racist incident involving white cops and unarmed black youths has divided the country along color lines.

The incident involves an end-of-school pool party held in a McKinney, Texas gated community, that dissolved into chaos when several fights broke out between white residents who objected to black youths swimming in their community pool.

Some of the black youths were invited to the pool party while others reportedly "jumped the fence" to get in. The party had been advertised on social media.

Witnesses say a white woman hurled racist epithets at a group of black girls. The woman then attacked a 19-year-old girl, punching her in the face. A fight broke out between the woman and 2 younger girls.

Someone called 911. What happened next was captured by a neighborhood boy on his cell phone.

The first officers arriving on the scene were calm and responded to the situation in a professional manner.

Then Officer Eric Casebolt arrived, somersaulting into the camera view in an overly dramatic manner. He jumped up and began chasing only the black youths, ordering them to get on the ground for no reason.

Casebolt was out-of-control from the moment he arrived. He handcuffed only the black kids, screaming profanities at 14-year-old girls who were simply standing around. Casebolt approached a 14-year-old girl who didn't move fast enough, snatched her by her hair extensions and flipped her to the ground. He buried her face in the grass and straddled her back, as she cried for her mother.

2 adult males approached Casebolt in an aggressive manner and Casebolt drew his weapon. If not for the quick actions of another cop, we would be talking about another officer-involved shooting of an unarmed black male.

The video left many viewers shaken and outraged. Others -- who only see race as a factor in police brutality cases -- blamed the black youths for the cop's aggressive and wholly inappropriate behavior.

Casebolt was placed on administrative leave (not suspension) while the incident is "thoroughly investigated."

Many are calling for Casebolt's termination, including TV writer and producer Shonda Rhimes. Rhimes, a lesbian who adopted 2 daughters and had a 3rd by surrogate, fired off a stream of Tweets questioning the officer's actions.

Rhimes tweeted: "My kids didn't wanna get out of pool today. ANYONE think best way 2 handle is grab 'em by throat, slam em to ground & cuff 'em? Hell no…. How hard is it to TO NOT ASSAULT A CHILD?" she asked.

    The YT kid filming said he was invisible to the police, they NEVER said a Word to him.

  • Just Looking

    It's a small incident, (no one was killed); then the next one will cause all out race war. Praying that it will not come to that. Unfortunately that is the direction it's headed to here in the United States with a African American President.

    @Sunshine Luvn - Not BIG YT Gorilla.

    Yes, you said it and it's true. I mean she is a big lady.

    MCkinnely is suppose to be the "melting pot" of Texas, but Iono now.

    The outcome of this will say alot, thankfully he has suspended. Next action should be termination, these police are going to learn, that the a badge does not give them permission to bully at kill at will.

  • Torae

    They need to press charges against those white bishes. I'm really sick of this and it disgusts me to the core. We as parents would get arrested for child abuse if we man handled our children like that. In the video there was also a white fat man restraining the 14 year old.....sickening

  • https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=kPI_xA1SoRg Mother Of Dragons, Shopaholic, Geek

    DF said he'd have ended up in jail had that been our kids. Said you are not going to yank my unarmed half naked daughter to the ground and sit on her and get away with it. I said I'd be right there with a lawyer to get you out and sue EVERYBODY :fistbump: This is beyond sickening.

  • iWasteTime

    I'd be dead or in jail if that was my baby :no:

  • datsmdubya2u

    And who was fighting was the racist yt woman who told the kids to go back to section 8 housing and young WHITE teen who confronted her about what she said..the 911 call didnt report 2 sprites fighting but that there werebkids there who didnt belong and were not invited…so when the po pos roll up who looks like they “dont belong”? The po pos were completely wrong but i would have liked to see more black adults at the party. The party was given by a AA teen and her mom..but i think if more AA adults had been there the white filks would thought twice b4 hurling the racist stuff at them in the first place

    Honestly, I watched the entire video and aside from him being too rough handling the girl, I don't think he did anything wrong. People love sensationalizing stuff.

    White kids in my area...raided the Target about 12 of them and ran out the clothes and groceries. They were recorded doing this and do u think it made the news.....NO!...this is baltimore county by the way...15 mins from where the riots happened.

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals lovezoe

    And you got these alaabasters thinking it's okay. The white fools at the swim club posted a sign in support of those pigs. Where was that baby gun? In her snatch?

    I follow Jen Hatmaker. She adopted two African kids. She posted how she was heartbroken. Why does this keep happening. Folks mad. I love the fact that because she's white, she remembers she has black babies.

  • Just Looking

    The threatening with the gun scene with the teens was WAY TOO MUCH.

    I am sure that is why he was suspended.

    The rough handling of the bathing suit dressed girl, is not against the law. Unfortunately.

    Ok, that does it. Let me go outdoors and watch this dramatic footage. It sounds like a doosie. Plus I think I need to see it to feel the anger that everyone else is feeling. Right not I'm just envisioning this guy cartwheeling and back hand springing onto the scene and all I can do is snicker. My daughter didn't tell me that part yesterday when she was telling me about it.

  • sassyshe

    I saw this mess on IG yesterday and I was like what the hell did that poor girl do to deserve such treatment. He was trigger happy and was looking for someone to jump the wrong way to pull a gun on them. I really do think that psychologicals need to be completed as part of the assessment process to be an officer as it would help to indicate some reason why these fools are trying to become officers. It is a goddam shame that these kids had to go through this and for all the parents that were justifying this crap, I hope one day their kids face unwarranted brutality and see how powerless it feels to not have justice for your child, smh

    And for the most part police officers are not only UNEDUCATED but they are psychotic as well. My ex b/f came back from Afghanistan (was one of the first people shipped over there.) He came back with ptsd and was a crazed, stalker, suicidal drunk that couldn't find a job..guess whatjob he applied for? Trenton P.D. 9 years later he still does not have an education(this mofo barely graduated high school)...still crazy and an alcoholic.

    FOH w/not much wrong here.

  • http://youtu.be/bQaBEm_mh5U I AM MisTaken I don’t get tired :huh: of being PETTY :)

    Listen and understand me
    1) If I saw that police officer abusing (cause that is what it was) my child like that I might have reacted more aggressively than the two young men
    2) So when you see someone be assaulted ILLEGALLY and without cause by someone in authority the thing to do is to just sit there and allow it to happen because you might get shot? So you would want someone to stand there? :huh:
    3) If my husband saw this happened to any of our kids he would be in jail because the cop would be paralyzed, not breathing or on the cusp of visiting hell permanently. People better learn who to play with. Everybody doesn’t take injustice and attacking our children in a “respectful” manner. Everybody don’t march. And for those that don’t march..we have no business judging them.
    4) Kat Stack …a sack of sperm and skin waste said the kids deserved to get beat because they shouldn’t have been disobedient. FOH. :rolleyes: That is the problem will SIMPLE MINDED folks. They will always find a justification for hate and mistreatment of others. Until it happens to them

    Lordt forgive me, but I just watched the video without sound and that roll move the officer did was just way too funny for me to be outraged. Coupled with the white socks I just couldn't maintain any seriousness.

  • cookiemobster

    What this officer did is highly inappropriate!! And in NO WAY should he have man handeled that child that way!!! But people have got to realize that you are not supposed to argue with the police. If the cops get to a situation they have to think about their safety as well as the safety of others. You may have not done anything wrong, but if they tell you to sit down or stand up or whatever, I was raised to do it. That diffuses the situation a whole lot quicker and is a lot safer for everyone.

  • Meme81

    I don't even need to see the video, I'm sure it's excessive force. We already know what's going to happen-administrative leave, 'thorough investigation', local community protests and some rioting, investigation finds no wrongdoing and cop reinstated. Rinse and repeat.

    What I don't understand is why this was escalated. Were the kids rowdy, were they disrespectful? Or were they just ruining some white racist day off? To have guns pulled on kids who were doing absolutely nothing and to justify it, is fucking ridiculous. Sorry.
