Texas Officer Suspended Following Pool Party Incident

A McKinney, Texas, police corporal was placed on administrative leave after a video surfaced Saturday showing him pulling a 15-year-old girl to the ground and pinning her down outside a pool party Friday night in the expansive Craig Ranch subdivision. Seconds later, he pulled his gun and pointed it at two teens who appear to try to come to her aid. More Here.

Well! If you watch closely it appears that two males move to the officers right side and he makes eye contact with them for a split second andhe moves to protect his gun from being grabbed. It's almost instantaneous and the two male characters apparently thought better of it and backed off. I think what I'm saying is an officer trying to control his weapon from being taken from his person!

It doesn't seem to me to be a black and white deal, since there is several lights in custody also, what it appears to be people crashing a pool party!

This is why police should all wear body cameras. If it wasn't for this video there would be unsubstantiated protests that the officer was waving his gun around, instead of trying to control from being taken by those two men.

I may be wrong but that's what it appears to me.

This police officer isn't exactly a role model. Cursing up a storm and overly agressive, it was his unnecessary roughness that escalated the situation, easily preventable by acting like a human bein instead or a police thug.

They are obviously responding to a report involving a young black male. They are controlling the incident and this mouthy youths began interfering with their investigation. More than a few of them should have gone with the paddy-wagon called to transport them all for processing.

These officers gave thes people very chance to shut their mouth and move away. Instead theydecided to spend some time in jail. These officers acted very appropriately. It's rediculous the officer was suspended. It's an obvious move by politicians to placicate savages.

This just a taste of things to come This police admin was scared of becoming the next Ferguson or Baltimore at the expense of the officers carreer and name. Sad part about it is the DOJ will likely attack him because that's what the federal Administration does.
