Mom Has a Message in Response to McKinney Fury That You Won’t Hear in Many Places [Video]

When I first heard of this, my instinct was to come to the defense of the police here. But there was wrong doing on both sides and it had nothing to do with race. The mother here is right – parent’s need to teach their children how to respond when police are present. They also need to teach their children not to mob up and go to private parties where they have no business being. Over 100 teens were flash-mobbed over social media and went to a pool party that was in a gated community and when the guard wouldn’t let them in, they climbed over the wall. The guard called the police who arrived to disperse the crowd and then the games began.

From TheBlaze:

A Texas mother’s video response to national furor over a YouTube clip showing McKinney police officer Cpl. Eric Casebolt grabbing a 15-year-old girl and throwing her to the ground has gone viral, gaining more than 1.5 million views as of Wednesday morning.

Kisa Jackson delivered a passionate response in a clip that was uploaded to her Facebook page on Monday, defending Casebolt’s right to draw his gun and imploring parents to “take ownership” and teach their children to respect authority figures.

“I think ownership needs to be placed where it should be and that’s on the parents,” Jackson said. “Do I think the incident was excessive? Yes — but do I think it was necessary? Yes.”

She went on to explain that the video shows the kids running from police officers when they arrived on the scene, and said that parents should teach their kids that this isn’t the proper way to act.

“You should teach your children that when the police arrive to the scene, you stand there and you wait for instructions,” she said. “You don’t know what’s going on. The police officer does not know what’s going on.”

Watch the clip below:

And she wasn’t done there. Jackson also pushed back against those claiming that black kids were targeted by the police.

“Everyone is in an uproar they refrained the black kids and not the white kids. The white kids weren’t running. The black kids were,” she said. “And I’m black by the way.”

As for Casebolt’s reaction — which has garnered much attention and controversy — she said that the police officer was being rushed by kids and that the teenage girl who was thrown to the ground pulled away from him.

“You cannot pull away from an officer. At that point, that’s a threat,” she continued. “So, he had every right to detain her from ‘any means necessary’ from Malcolm X.”

Jackson continued, ”What is he supposed to do, calm her down, hold her gently? He’s an officer. You do what an officer says.”

The mother did say that she believes “we are dealing with 430 years of systematic genocide” and that nothing has changed, but she added that she doesn’t believe all cops are good or bad, for that matter.

“It’s about, again, the parents and teaching our children to respect authority figures, whether it’s an officer, a teacher … a parent walking down the street.”

As TheBlaze previously reported, Jackson isn’t the only person concerned over authority issues among young people.

Still, many have heavily criticized Casebolt’s actions, with the embattled cop resigning this week.

The teenagers would not obey the officers and therefore were cuffed and put on the ground etc. Cpl. Eric Casebolt was ticked off in the heat and cussing at the kids while trying to get them to leave. Two boys approached him as he was handling a 15 year-old girl in a bikini. Both acted as thought they were reaching behind them and the officer pulled his gun, startling everyone and causing two other officers to caution him it looks like. But when Casebolt manhandled the teenage girl the way he did, he stepped over the line. She may have mouthed off and not obeyed, but he threw her to the ground several times and then knelt on her back. He lost his cool and his wits and Sheriff Clarke condemned his actions and he is right. I have a huge problem with several things the officer did. The officer did not do anything criminal, but it was unprofessional and violent. Casebolt has resigned and I think that is the right move here. He will never work in law enforcement again. This Texas mother is right… parents are responsible to teach their children the right way to behave and to honor authority. My dad would have made sure I didn’t sit down for a month if I had behaved like that.
