Local Homeowners Defend Texas Cops Who Brutalized Black Teens At Pool Party

By Judd Legum


The police’s brutal treatment of black teens attending a pool party in McKinney, Texas has sparked a nationwide outrage. The video shows officer Eric Casebolt grabbing 15-year-old Dajerria Becton, unarmed and wearing a bikini, by the hair and wrestling her to the ground. The seven-minute clip, posted Saturday, has already been viewed over 1 million times on YouTube and the incident was the number one trending topic in the United States on Twitter for much of Sunday.

But a reporter for Fox4 in Dallas, Zahid Arab, interviewed local homeowners who witnessed the incident and defended the officers’ conduct. These homeowners, according to Arab, say they believe the “officers’ safety was at risk.”

One of these homeowners appeared on camera, but allowed only her hands to be filmed. “I feel absolutely horrible for the police and what’s going on… they were completely outnumbered and they were just doing the right thing when these kids were fleeing and using profanity and threatening security guards,” she said.
