Have you seen this one yet?

Texas Police Officer “On Administrative Leave” After Pulling Weapon On Teens During Pool Party[1]

The officer was filmed aggressively handcuffing black teens before drawing his weapon to scare away others who had come to their aid.

This is being turned into a big raaaaacism issue by the mostly leftist media and websites covering it, along with Police Brutality. Sites like the Huffington Post[2] go down the same route. This evil cop apparently pulled his gun! On Black kids in bathing suits! The McKinney PD[3] has responded

On June 5, 2015 at approximately 7:15 p.m., officers from the McKinney Police Department responded to a disturbance at the Craig Ranch North Community Pool. The initial call came in as a disturbance involving multiple juveniles at the location, who do not live in the area or have permission to be there, refusing to leave. McKinney Police received several additional calls related to this incident advising that juveniles were now actively fighting.

First responding officers encountered a large crowd that refused to comply with police commands. Nine additional units responded to the scene. Officers were eventually able to gain control of the situation.

McKinney Police later learned of a video that was taken at the scene by an unknown party. This video has raised concerns that are being investigated by the McKinney Police Department. At this time, one of the responding officers has been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of this investigation.

Buuuuuuuut, there are a few issues with the Leftist narrative, which the Leftists attempt to gloss over

(Breitbart[4]) Left media is ablaze with articles condemning the police response to a pool party at a McKinney, Texas, subdivision. Now a video is emerging showing why police were called to the scene to begin with – violence.

Residents in a McKinney subdivision were hosting an end-of-school party in their private community pool. Many teens who were not residents of the subdivision began showing up. Some had been invited by residents, some had not. An ad for the event had been placed on social media sites.

Teens who were not invited began climbing the fence to get in, according to reports from residents of the area. Trouble began when they were asked to leave by residents and pool management.

The kids were fighting with the adults who asked them to leave, because they were trespassing. And fighting. And breaking things.

One resident, Benet Embry, a black man, posted[5] on Facebook about the events leading up to the police call. “Look, I LIVE in this community and this ENTIRE incident is NOT racial at all,” Embry wrote. “A few THUGS spoiled a COMMUNITY event by fighting, jumping over fences into a PRIVATE pool, harassing and damaging property. Not EVERYTHING is about RACE. WE have other issues that NEED our attention other flights of made up make believe causes.”

Another McKinney resident, Bryan Gestner, posted on Facebook, “This was a Twitter party that turned into a mob event. Jumping pool fence. Assaulting 2 security guards, attacking a mother with three little girls. The video doesn’t show everything.” He continued saying the kids were drinking and “smoking weed” and they would not listen to any of the adults around the pool.

Watch the video. Notice that the police officer pulls out his gun when a kid is quickly approaching him while he attempts to get the girl in the bikini down on the ground, while she resists. He used the proper amount of force in attempting to get her to the ground, while she resists, which, remember, is a criminal violation. Pulling his service weapon may not have been the optimum solution, however, he saw a threat coming towards him during a volatile situation, one in which he was down near the ground and only had one hand free.

The police could have charged the girl, but, instead, they let her go after being briefly detained.

Gestner wrapped up his post alleging that these same kids came back into the neighborhood Saturday night. They were “kicking in people’s front door, stole a truck and crashed it into many vehicles. They vandalized dozens of cars and were stealing things.”

So, a bunch of teenage thugs, who shouldn’t have been at the pool in the first place, caused all sorts of problems, then came back to cause more. Funny how all the Leftists are excusing that behavior.
