So much black “injustice” and maltreatment has been going on for a while now, whether it is as a result of the fact that there is an existing black president we would never know. All we know is, crimes and arrests relating to black people are more pronounced in this administration and it seems like every week, there is a black crime to be reported.
This has erupted probably the highest number of protests any administration has ever had from the black community.
One of such is that of a McKinney officer, Eric Casebolt. Unfortunately for him, his attempt at restoring peace to a chaotic neighborhood filled with kids trying to enjoy the summer break, went the wrong way.
In a video posted on YouTube, Officer Eric could be seen holding a girl down by her neck right after he had asked a couple of kids to sit on the floor.
The video showed Officer Casebolt grabbing 15-year old Dajerria Becton, then pushed her face down into the ground and put his knees on her back as she screamed in pain.
Another scene showed the officer curse at the other children in the area, even pulling his gun out on two young black males who came to Becton’s aide.

Unfortunately for him, the video went viral and the officer in question, had to resign today.
McKinney Police Chief Greg Conley announced the resignation of Cpl. Eric Casebolt earlier today, stating that his actions are “indefensible”:
“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.
“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.”
He continued saying, “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.”
