Pool Party Police Tactics in Question
McKinney, Texas, police officer Eric Casebolt was put on “administrative leave” after a video posted online showed him wrestling a teen girl to the ground and pulling his gun on another teen during a pool party. Casebolt is seen shouting obscenities and pulling the 15-year-old Dajerria Becton’s hair as he wrestles her. “He grabbed me, twisted my arm on my back and shoved me in the grass and started pulling the back of my braids. I was telling him to get off me because my back was hurting bad.” Officers were responding to the call of a private security guard and residents who complained that several teenagers did not have permission to use the residential community pool and had refused to leave. According to a woman who claims to be the host of the party, the fight started because a while woman made racist remarks, and told her guests to go back to public housing.
