Morning, everyone – well, we might as well start with recent events that occurred close to Your Humble Narrator’s home – just 10 miles Northeast of my humble abode.
I’m not going to unearth the countless threads on the McKinney pool party – just use your imagination on that subject.
Instead, I’m going to focus on the Freeperati reaction to the resignation of the officer of the day –
First, there’s this:
Ferguson, Baltimore … now McKinney?

McKinney, Texas, has joined Ferguson, Missouri, and Baltimore as cities known not for their business, tourism, climate or economy, but as communities torn apart by racial controversy.
The Texas town has been targeted by protesters since a video of a white police officer confronting a mostly black crowd of teenagers went viral, leading to claims of police brutality.
But some commentators say the drama in Texas is the latest case of racial agitators deliberately dividing Americans for their own personal gain.
Colin Flaherty, the author of “White Girl Bleed A Lot: The Return of Racial Violence to America and How the Media Ignore It,” says he is outraged at how the press has distorted the story.
“I am constantly amazed at how local and national media are able to ignore and deny basic facts of a story,” he said.
“In this case, huge numbers of black people were trespassing at a private pool, attacked the white people at the pool, bullied and attacked their children, destroyed property and the entire time used racial epithets. And when they were asked to leave, they attacked the security guard.”
Brent Embry, a black local resident, posted a message on Facebook charging “THUGS” were responsible for crashing the party.
According to Embry, it was a security guard, overwhelmed by sheer numbers, who called the police. Embry has reported being called an “Uncle Tom” because of his comments denying the incident was about race. His posting on Facebook has since been taken down…
I’m sure the Freeperati will give this the wise and measured analysis it deserves…
It’s not a problem with community. It is a problem in their genes. Sorry to say that, but look at every single black community in the world.

It’s not a problem with community. It is a problem in their genes. [!!!] Sorry to say that, but look at every single black community in the world.
You richly deserve a lifelong ZOT for channeling the thoughts of Margaret Sanger, founder of the leftist abortion mill, Planned Parenthood. Attitudes such as this are just a step away from advocacy of genocide through mass abortion of those deemed genetically inferior.
Remember when Margaret Sanger called for a genocidal race-purge?
LoL. Margaret Sanger? Really?
There is something wrong and it goes deeper than community. I would never condone genocide, but the “thug” certainly has something wrong with him. If you didn’t understand the context of this post.
But blacks as a whole everywhere in the world cannot seem to rise above savagery. That’s a truth. An easily verifiable one. The black people I do know that aren’t living thug life ghetto slummin are surrounded by white people. So you tell me what it is then, since you just labelled me a genocidal maniac racist.
So you tell me what it is then, since you just labelled me a genocidal maniac racist.
It’s not genetic in any way, shape or form — it political. Conservative blacks meet or exceed every known metric of intelligence, income and responsible behavior.
A liberal white is just as thuggish as is a liberal black. That’s indisputable. Take Vermont as but one example of this as proof positive. The state is over 95% white but elected Bernie Sanders, clearly a traitor and enemy to America. He’s a thug every bit as much as Trayvon Martin and Freddy Gray.
I never tire of Freepers calling OTHER PEOPLE racists.
It just never gets old.
Reactions to Punch Side-iron’s resignation and so much more after the barrel-roll…
McKinney Officer Resigns Amid Pool Party Investigation

Officer’s resignation effectively ends internal investigation by McKinney police
“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 community pool, are indefensible,” said Chief Greg Conley, during a news conference Tuesday afternoon. “Our policies, our training, our practice, do not support these actions. He came into the call out of control, and as the video shows, was out of control during the incident.”
As Casebolt and two officers first responded to the scene, teens were said to be running from the area as officers tried to gain control of the situation
“Our citizens called us to a fight in progress and a general disturbance at the community pool. We responded. I do not condone the actions of those individuals who violated the rules of the community, showed disrespect to the security person on scene and to the officers who responded,” Conley said. “However, we as a department are held to a high standard … as we do our jobs. I support the fine men and women of the McKinney Police Department, who day in and day out, do an outstanding job on behalf of all of our citizens.”
Police said nine additional officers were called to the scene and the disruption was eventually brought under control.
“I have 12 officers on the scene and 11 of them performed according to their training. They did an excellent job,” Conley said. Video showing the incident sparked national scrutiny of the officer’s actions. Meanwhile, Casebolt was placed on administrative leave while his actions were investigated.
Casebolt resigned Tuesday through his attorney and did not issue an apology, police said Tuesday.
The teen in the bikini taken to the ground by Casebolt was eventually released without being cited.
“I was wondering what was going through his head. Why would he even come to the scene and act in the manner in which he acted?” said Dana Bakari, whose daughter, Jahda, was at the party on Friday night.
The family lives in the Craig Ranch North neighborhood.
Casebolt’s resignation effectively ends the investigation by the McKinney Police Department’s Internal Affairs Division.
“We may never know, but at the same time, too, I am relieved that he’s no longer at the police force here in McKinney,” Dana Bakari said.
On Monday night, the Craig Ranch North Homeowners’ Association sent an email to its members, saying, in part, “This is a peaceful, increasingly-diverse neighborhood that is growing and thriving because of our difference in background, race, reasons for moving here, and in many other ways.”
“I just hope it doesn’t shed a negative light here,” Dana Bakari said.
Cornell William Brooks, president and CEO of the NAACP, released a statement Tuesday following Casebolt’s resignation.
“To protect any community, law enforcement officials must respect that community. The resignation of Cpl. Eric Casebolt is a good first step, but hardly the last,” Brooks said.
Brooks went on to say the NAACP, “will continue working with community members and law enforcement to ensure that no one, especially the young people of McKinney, are ever again the victims of excessive force, racial profiling and police brutality.”
One person was arrested for evading arrest/detention and interference with public duties. Police said Tuesday that those charges were dropped.
McKinney police said they have reached out to the teens involved and asked if they wanted to press charges. So far only one person has responded.
And before they (the Freepers) even got their blah people thing really going.
Translation : “I miss the good old days when a cop could show an uppity nigra a thing or two without being caught….”
But what’s the end game here, Freepers? What is all this “accountability” thing in aid of?

“It’s obvious that he just lost it. He went into a rage. The other officers did not. He shouldn’t be a police officer, thats all. And once again, all police officers should realize that everything they do is being recorded.”
Yep. I hope they continue to point out that 11 other officers did it exactly right.
Just like anything else. The majority does it right but one cop, who at the very least, is having some obvious anger management issues totally blows the good work and the goodwill that the others have earned.

I see we have a couple of Trolls here.If you look at the tape there were two THUGS coming from behind him
What started this
Question mark omissions?
The people in the community called the police because Thugs came and TREPASSED(sic) and harassed property owners and their children.
Oh, for fuck’s sake.
It’s obnoxious to see how the media have completely distorted a story to the point of no recognition. The girl was given a lawful order to disperse, refused to do so, because she thought she had a right to trespass and use vulgar language in front of children. She then refused a lawful order to sit down, and chose to verbally and physically resist. The next step is physical force. Doesn’t matter if she’s a girl. If she’s hysterical and resisting commands, the cop was in the right.
I thought you were just supposed to slap hysterical wimmens?
As for the gun thing, the twothugs were sshouting and charging on his blind side, closing in just a few feet. Totally justified, but I keep hearing him portrayed as pulling a gun for no reason!
The lie will live on and join a list of other lies that go on to infinity.
“the cop was in the right”
The McKinney chief of police disagrees with you.
He said Casebolt went in out of control. He did praise the other 11 officers for their professionalism.
He also laid some of the blame on the kids for their behavior.
McKinney isn’t Ferguson. It’s a pretty well off suburb of Dallas.
The girl who got pushed down lives in that subdivision.
It’s not the Hood and those kids aren’t gangstas.
There’s no rioting or looting going on and the matter’s closed.
The cop resigned as he should have.
Everybody is more or less satisfied.

This is a twofer for the communists. It supports attacks on private property while protecting change agents. The video clearly shows an agent provocateur reaching behind him feigning a weapon to entice the officer to draw his weapon. Other officers witnessed this and chased after him.

“If the perp(s) are black, it has to be hands off policing. Cops now know that even when faced with an out of control mob of black “youts”
running amok, assaulting residents, destroying property, not following orders to disperse – they now know to just stand down and let them have their space and give them more “space to destroy” just like Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake did during the riots in Baltimore.
The lesson learned and the “problem solved” is that no white nor any black cop is ever going to risk taking down a black perp, no matter what that perp, he or she has done because they don’t want to, not only lose their job or be forced to resign under pressure, but also face a criminal or a civil rights prosecution for doing their jobs.”
Sorry but I think there’s going to be some middle ground between Hands Off and going full tilt out of control.
The argument that you can only do one extreme thing or the opposite extreme thing isn’t valid.
This was pretty simple. A party got out of control and the cops showed up and one cop got out of control.
It’s the cops job to be in control. Cops are held to a higher standard.
The party’s over the cop has resigned.
“…Sorry but the McKinney chief of police disagrees with you.”
The police chief is a political hack who needs to be fired. He is not some paragon of morality that we should look to for our opinions.
Interestingly, the entire community is rallying around the officer and demanding he be reinstated, and they are also calling for the chief to be fired.
How many of these kids knew the hostess?It’s irrelevant. She was throwing a party on private property and a hundred feral thugs showed up.
Would you like her to throw a party at your house without permission.
Would you like her to throw a party in your neighborhood? one that gets national publicity and your property value goes down 30%.
All these events are being pushed by the MSM at the behest of the Obama Administration.It’s to take people’s attention away from the upcoming economic collapse.
