|The chief of McKinney Police said that Eric Casebolt's actions were disgusting.|
If one thing has taught me about society and the ills that came along with it, I realize the media can really ruin a career. Seriously, a career in law enforcement down the drain because of a reckless call.
McKinney, Texas police issued a public statement. Eric Casebolt has resigned amid the controversial YouTube video of him slamming a teen to ground and pointing his service weapon on unarmed teens.
Chief Of Police Greg Conley announced Tuesday evening that Casebolt knew he was fucked! He condemned his actions and vows to correct the wrongs. The Huffington Post and KDFW has learned that this is an open investigation and the U.S. Justice Department is looking into it.
Casebolt's lawyer told KDFW earlier on Tuesday that the officer had decided to leave the force. Conley said that Casebolt's decision to leave was voluntary and that he would continue to collect a pension and benefits.
Conley strongly condemned Casebolt's actions during the incident and said that the officer, who had been with the department since 2005, was "out of control."
As the chief of police, I want to say to our community that the actions of Casebolt, as seen on the video, of the disturbance at the pool, are indefensible. Our policies, our training, our practice do not support his actions," he said. "He came into the call out of control, and as the video shows, was out of control during the incident."
Conley also said on Tuesday that charges against 18-year-old Adrian Martin, the only person arrested at the pool party incident, had been dropped.
Casebolt had been placed on administrative leave after video of the incident went viral. That internal investigation has ended because Casebolt is no longer employed by the police department, according to Terry Qualls, a police department spokesperson. There is an ongoing investigation to determine whether Casebolt should face criminal charges.
Police said in a statement on Sunday that they were responding to reports of a disturbance at the Craig Ranch North Community Pool on Friday. Casebolt was caught on video wrestling a young black teenager to the ground and then pulling his weapon on others who ran to help the girl.
Some real shit going on in Texas.
Of course, our racist right friends are so fixated on calling a bunch of teens "THUGS".
Thug is the new NIGGER. The racist right has been invested in making this notion that despite a few White people racially agitating the event, the agitators have already fingered the teens.
Pathetic concern trolls like this asshole Todd Starnes. He's a fixture on Loserville and he's like that annoying conservative agitator but a whole lot worse.
And also the nasty remarks from these Twitter twats....
Our friends at Addicting Info have gotten the worse for you.
And some of the best.
The world is watching how our conservative friends reacts police brutality against Black people. They treat men of color, women of color, people in the LGBT community, practicing Muslims and immigrants who are trying to achieve the American dream as criminals, deviants, and everything else they can pull from their asses.
