Texas Cop Investigated for Pool Party Brutality
A video of police breaking up a teenage pool party in McKinney, Texas, went viral this weekend. In it, a white officer appears to assault a black, bikini-clad 14-year-old girl, slamming her face into the ground, sitting on her and drawing his gun on other teens who tried to help her. Many are calling it police brutality. Authorities, who say the juveniles didn’t have permission to be at the pool, have put officer Eric Casebolt on administrative leave, launched an investigation and asked for public patience.
