There are serious problems of racism in Law Enforcement that must be corrected. There have been dreadful incidents lately and deserve protests and firings of those cops who are guilty of acting, in their roles of law enforcement, in a racist manner.
The case of the officers’ supposed abuse in the McKinney Pool Party incident was not racist. There are eye witness accounts from white and black people proving that this is not a racist incident. The following is an account of what happens when a black witness tells the truth.
Benet Embry a Black Radio Host Tells What Really Happened in McKinney Texas, Was Not Racism By Cops and Community is Not Racist.

“This is not Ferguson, this is not Baltimore, this is not Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, or Eric Garner……”https://youtu.be/z1PjtR8SixQ
The pulling of the gun had nothing to do with the black teenager being cuffed but by the guy behind the cop who was cuffing her. at 5:47 time mark in the video shows just that.
The teen who took the video did not witness the whole incident. He says himself, that he was in the bathroom when a friend came in and told him about the fight. He says that he then packed up his stuff.
The fight started while Brooks was in the bathroom. He says that when he walked outside, the fight was over and everyone was running away.
“The cops showed up and the parents immediately started yelling, ‘You need more cops, there’s too many of them .’ And most of the kids weren’t even involved. It was a fight between a mom and girl, which had nothing to do with all the other kids that she apparently needed more cops for,” Brooks explained
Another view of the incident: heavy.com shows that these ‘innocents’ were verbally goading the cops. They also show that BLACK ADULTS WERE TELLING THEM TO GO.
Why were people so riled up enough to call the cops?

The ‘teen’ in the fight is not a minor. She is in her majority at the age of 19
And here is another resident’s view:
COPS CRASH POOL PARTY(ORIGINAL) Brandon Brooks
In the above video the girl who was a ‘victim of a racist cop’ had walked by said cop TWICE and he didn’t bother her at all. It was when she was mouthing off at him that is when he made physical contact. At that time, she refused to sit, when he physically guided her to sit, he used her arm to take her down, and even then she refused to comply.
In an appearance on CNN’s “Outfront” on Monday, Benét Embry, host of the “Benét Embry Radio Show,” explained that it was his view that a pool party that went awry and led to a confrontation between several black teenagers and local police wasn’t about race.
He blamed “seven knuckleheads” for ruining what was about kids “there just having a good time.”
“I do not believe that this was about race,” Embry said. “What this was a teenage party that got out of control. It was about 130 kids there, 100 good kids there just having a good time. Out of the 130, predominantly African-American, seven knuckleheads ruined the whole thing for everybody. That’s what this is all about. I don’t think — I do not believe that officer showed up to the subdivision with the intention, ‘I’m going to go out and swing black kids around.’ I do not believe that. That’s not the way the community is set up. That’s not the community we live in. So, amidst death threats that I have received and the banning of my radio show, my neighbor had to send his son away because he is receiving death threats.”
Dozens of activists are calling on a Dallas-based video broadcast station to fire a black talk show host for blaming a group of mostly black teenagers for starting a fracas at a private swimming pool in McKinney, Tex. on Friday.
Benet Embry, who hosts an internet show on Deep Ellum on Air and lives in the neighborhood, has been accused by some for being a traitor to his race after he posted to his Facebook account to push back against what he called a false media narrative that has been crafted in the wake of the incident.
The Daily Caller confirmed with the CEO of Deep Ellum, Jedi Jantzen, that the station has received at least 25 phone calls and numerous emails and social media posts demanding Embry’s ouster. Jentzen said he has no plans to fire the host.
The outrage began with a seven-and-a-half minute video released over the weekend showing McKinney police officer Eric Casebolt throwing a 15-year-old black girl on the ground and pulling out his gun as he tried to detain a group of teenagers allegedly involved in the fracas.
But witnesses to the scene say that the video lacks context. They said that teens, many of whom did not live in Craig Ranch, began causing trouble at a concert held next to the pool. Pool-goers who do live in the neighborhood called police after some of the teens trespassed into the pool. Others were fighting. Police who first responded to the scene were reportedly unable to control the crowd of teenagers, who refused to comply.
The girl Casebolt forced to the ground said that she was not involved in any of the violence that had occurred at the pool.
The incident was portrayed in racial terms for two reasons: Casebolt is white and the neighborhood where the incident occurred, Craig Ranch, is a planned community with mostly white residents.
But in a Facebook post that has since gone viral, Embry disputed the notion that racism was involved:
Oh, I say and I say it again, ya been had! Ya been took! Ya been hoodwinked! Bamboozled! Led astray! Run amok! MediaTakeout.com posts a story showing only 7 minutes of a 30 minute ordeal, makes it racial and all the activist come a running. Look, I LIVE in this community and this ENTIRE incident is NOT racial at all. 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 issuses [sic] that NEED our attention other flights of made up make believe causes.
“I’ve never seen such irresponsible reporting and miss management [sic] of media resources in my life,” Embry commented later.
Michael Cory Quattrin also lives in the neighborhood and witnessed the drama.He posted to Facebook saying that the teens showed up after a DJ circulated an invitation to an event that was held near the pool.
“Teens began fighting with each other and pushing their way into our private pool,” Quattrin wrote. “Some were jumping our fence. The security guard was accosted when he tried to stop the beginnings of this mob scene.”
He said that the teens began yelling racial slurs at neighbors and assaulting people, including a mother with three young children. Some of the teenagers who attended the concert have claimed that the pool-goers were the first to use racial language.
Embry’s comments sparked widespread pushback.
“Don’t listen to this fool’s show,” Facebook user Tracy Price-Thompson wrote on Embry’s page. “Petition to have it cancelled and taken off the air. But wait, he’s not engaging Blacks as his audience anyway. He’s pandering to whites, eating crow and shucking and jiving to please those who will never accept him.”
Another commenter named Fe Flucas posted contact information for Deep Ellum’s owners and producers, asking others to call for Embry to be fired.
Many seemingly heeded Flucas’ advice.
“I have been receiving a lot of calls and there is a petition too,” Jantzen told TheDC through email.
“We would never fire or get rid of someone for having their own opinion,” Jantzen continued, noting that there are even people on the radio station’s staff who disagree with Benet.
“However they are able to discuss it and be civil towards each other and that’s the saving grace. Banning Benet from doing a show with us would be pointless and completely against what we stand for.”
Embry could not be reached for comment, though he wrote on Facebook that he plans to discuss the story on his show Monday night.
There is an outstanding coverage on the background of the party planners here: [hint: they were not supposed to have this party and it was unlawful to have a mass public invitation, and they were committing a crime in the booking of this party public or private] Kudos to theconservativetreehouse for quick screenshots of the background.
