Here We Go Again – Another Racial Rorschach Test

“A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.” – Mark Twain

Something happened in Texas the other night. It involved black teenagers and the police. As usual, there was a rush to judgment. Here is a statement issued by the McKinney Police Department:

Pool Party Incident:

On June 5, 2015 at approximately 7:15 p.m., officers from the McKinney Police Department responded to a disturbance at the Craig Ranch North Community Pool. The initial call came in as a disturbance involving multiple juveniles at the location, who do not live in the area or have permission to be there, refusing to leave. McKinney Police received several additional calls related to this incident advising that juveniles were now actively fighting.

First responding officers encountered a large crowd that refused to comply with police commands. Nine additional units responded to the scene. Officers were eventually able to gain control of the situation.

McKinney Police later learned of a video that was taken at the scene by an unknown party. This video has raised concerns that are being investigated by the McKinney Police Department. At this time, one of the responding officers has been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of this investigation.

Now here is the narrative:

Cop Suspended After Video Emerges Of Brutal Arrests At Teen Pool Party

A Texas police officer has been suspended pending the outcome of an investigation after video surfaced showing one cop pulling a gun on a crowd of teens at a pool party while others handcuffed teenage partygoers.

Police on Friday evening were called to the Craig Ranch North Community Pool in McKinney, roughly 40 miles north of Dallas. McKinney police said in a statement they were responding to a disturbance “involving multiple juveniles at the location, who do not live in the area or have permission to be there, refusing to leave,” and that some of them were fighting.

A roughly 7-minute clip of the incident was published on YouTube Saturday and shows officers running after teens, with one aggressively handcuffing a black male teen while pinning a black girl to the ground by her head as she cried for her mother.

The officer was identified as patrol supervisor Cpl. Eric Casebolt.

“There was a fight, the cops showed up and started putting people on the ground for no reason,” Brandon Brooks, who shot the YouTube video, told The Huffington Post in a message.

A group of teens were at the pool for an end-of-school party, Miles Jai Thomas, one of the teens who attended, told HuffPost. Then a security guard showed up and put out all the black teenagers, Thomas said.

“He started making up rules to keep us out,” he said.

Before officers arrived on the scene, a white woman had started making racist comments, telling black partygoers to get used to the bars outside the pool because that’s all they were going to see. When one of the white teens at the party talked back to the adult, the woman began cursing and yelling at her as well, Thomas said.

Teens at the pool party told BuzzFeed News the police were called after a fight broke out. Some adults made racist comments and told the teens to return to “Section 8 [public] housing,” BuzzFeed reported.

“I think a bunch of white parents were angry that a bunch of black kids who don’t live in the neighborhood were in the pool,” Brooks said.

In the video, some partygoers are seen sitting in the grass and pleading “sir, we just came here for a birthday party, please.” Another officer is heard thanking a group of teens for returning a flashlight the officer dropped.


“Why the police who yelled at the kids to go home — how did they know those kids didn’t live there?” asked Lashadion Anthony, a barber and realtor in McKinney who attended with his son, a toddler.

“We live here, we pay taxes, we’re law-abiding citizens. Why should be treated differently than anyone else?” he said.

“They didn’t stop any of the people who aren’t of African-American descent,” Anthony added, saying that police “have to be able to handle people in a better manner than this.”

“We’re just asking for justice,” he said, noting that when his son is older, he should be able to visit public pools without fear of prejudice.

This is another racial Rorschach test. If you don’t see obvious evidence of racism and police brutality, you are a racist. If you question the narrative, you are a racist. If you want to wait until all the facts come out, you are a racist.


I must be a racist because I don’t know what really happened in McKinney the other night, but it appears that this wasn’t a “public” pool. You have to be a member of the local homeowner’s association to use the facilities. It is unclear who was hosting the party and if they had permission.

Apparently black people cannot be expected to control themselves if exposed to racist words and are justified in resorting to violence. As for the use of the adjective “brutal” it should be pointed out that no one was shot, tased, pepper-sprayed or beaten by the police.

Expect this story to dominate the news for a few days. The usual suspects are already planning protests.

Oh yeah, that poor innocent girl who was detained by the police? Here she is a few minutes earlier:

    Left media is ablaze with articles condemning the police response to a pool party at a McKinney, Texas, subdivision. Now a video is emerging showing why police were called to the scene to begin with – violence.

    Residents in a McKinney subdivision were hosting an end-of-school party in their private community pool. Many teens who were not residents of the subdivision began showing up. Some had been invited by residents, some had not. An ad for the event had been placed on social media sites.

    Teens who were not invited began climbing the fence to get in, according to reports from residents of the area. Trouble began when they were asked to leave by residents and pool management.


    Police were called to the scene and attempted to get some of the trespassers to sit down while they investigated. Many of the teens fled and police chased some of them down. This is when the video of the incident with police began. There does not appear to be any video of the initial police contact with the teens.

    One resident, Benet Embry, a black man, posted on Facebook about the events leading up to the police call. “Look, I LIVE in this community and this ENTIRE incident is NOT racial at all,” Embry wrote. “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 issues that NEED our attention other flights of made up make believe causes.”

    In another post he is critical of media coverage of the incident. “I’ve never seen such irresponsible reporting and miss management of media resources in my life,” he said.

    It is an HOA pool for home OWNERS. This is something the media does not comprehend. All pools belong to everyone in their mindset. Except their pools on their estates. How dare people in McKinney Texas not invite EVERYONE including felons and druggies to their pre-teens end of school party. How dare they! By the way, the social media promoter who cause this was charging admission to someone elses private party. That is fraud. That is theft. This scheme is also done on the coast in private beach homes when the owner is away and thief promoters have beach raves and destroy the whole town. Police brutality is also claimed as the entitled steal, vandalize, rape, pillage, murder each other, sell drugs, and terrorize neighbors while they are parking in their flower beds. One little town had to cut the power to the whole town to make them leave in the dark and they trashed the place and pissed in the street leaving. The cops are afraid of them which is the plan all along.

      That’s true you have to submit full name and SS of anyone living in your house for security clearance, plus names and addresses of extended family members (parents and siblings), plus the name and contact information if you have it for at least one neighbor for every single place you have ever lived. For your initial clearance you have to give 3 names as a reference, like a former teacher, pastor, friend.

      Hubby’s security clearance had to be renewed every couple of years, so unfortunately his files will impact a lot of people……not to mention our entire family’s names, date of birth and social security numbers are now in the hands of who knows??? It’s likely in time Uncle Sam will provide hubby with some kind of identity theft alert system……for one year no doubt, he’ll be on his own after that. My adult kids just starting out and me, well I guess we’re just collateral damage and we’re on our own. Not to mention our extended families and current and former neighbors, sheesh!

      I took the Massachusetts state teachers’ exam. If you can’t pass it, you don’t belong in the classroom. If you can’t pass the reading and composition test before you start college, you don’t belong in college. A lot of colleges and universities are making candidates who want to enter the teacher prep majors take the general test before they admit you to the program. You don’t take the subject matter test until after you’ve graduated and that makes sense. But so many people were getting degrees in education and failing the general test after graduation, schools said they decided to wean them out before they invested two more years in preparing these people to teach. Personally I think they did it because of the possibility of lawsuits from graduates who have a bachelor’s and sometimes a master’s degree, but can’t pass the certification test. And unless you’re a math major, there’s no math on the test. It’s all can you read and write at what’s about an 8th grade level.

    Via Facebook:

    Facebook friends and family – PLEASE HELP! That (now viral) video of the officer in McKinney subduing a girl in a bathing suit was in OUR neighborhood. The situation was NOT what is being reported…
    A DJ setup in a public space next to the private pool in our neighborhood on Friday and played loud explicit (F-bomb) music for multiple hours (it is unclear if he was invited by a resident as no one has claimed responsibility). The teenagers (both black and white) were being brought into our neighborhood by the carload because the DJ was tweeting out invites to a “pool party” for $15 (obviously unauthorized by our neighborhood). The teens began fighting with each other and pushing their way into our private pool. Some were jumping our fence. The security guard was accosted when he tried to stop the beginnings of this mob scene. Some residents who live around the park/pool area tried to come out and settle things down. The teens started yelling racial slurs at our neighbors and started assaulting people and property (throwing bottles at cars and attacking a mother at the pool with 3 young children). The first officer on the scene was by himself. At that time, the party had grown to a large, aggressive crowd. As the officer arrived, many teens started running through our neighborhood. Many of the teens were being very aggressive and yelling at the officers as more arrived.
    This was a very dangerous situation for the officers AND the teens/residents not involved. The news media has refused to hear the neighborhood’s side of this story. The video being distributed is only a very small segment of what happened. This information being distributed by the media and others is extremely distorted and in some cases outright lies.
    PLEASE HELP US STOP THE BROADCASTING OF THIS IGNORANCE. The media is trying to make it look like our neighborhood is a white’s only, racist area. Anyone who has spent even a few minutes in our area knows this is an outright LIE.
    The unfortunate result is that our neighbors are now being threatened. We have also had cars and property in and around the park area vandalized this weekend. Unfortunately, the press and social media are trying to enflame the situation.
    I am asking for your help for my family and my neighbor’s safety…PLEASE, PLEASE do not rebroadcast any of these lies.

    OT. The three – count ’em, three – Dublin, Ohio, high schools graduated a total of 222 valedictorians this year, or one out of five graduates was said to be at the tippity top of her/his class. Oh, yeah. Nothing’s getting dumbed down. Nope. Not at all. Just smarter kids. Yep.

    • Somebody says:

      Wow! I guess they have a lot of special snowflakes in Dublin. I thought it was absolutely terrible when they had an 8 way tie for valedictorian in my daughter’s senior class. That whole thing got really ugly, because only 1 was going to have the honor. All 8 were straight A students and national merit scholars, so there had to be tie breakers implemented. They ended up going back to elementary grades and that knocked out 6 of the 8 because they were home schooled for elementary therefore had no grades.

      Because of that magically the final two were decided. I don’t remember the final tie breaker that decided which one of those two was valedictorian. The entire time, I felt the issue could be easily resolved by using SAT scores……but that would have resulted in the “wrong” kid getting valedictorian…..the principal knew who she wanted she just had to find a way to justify it. After that ugly mess our school board set strict policies for deciding valedictorian and salutatorian so something like that most likely will never happen again. The board decided to use test scores as the first tie breaker, LOL! If they had used test scores that year then the decision would have been very simple, but again the principal wanted who she wanted……so no test scores.

    The Atlantic wants to outlaw private swimming pools cuz “feelings” and discrimination by homeowners who won’t let mobs into their property to physically and verbally abuse them. Why not the rooftop pools in millionaires row on Central Park in NYC? Why can’t the project kids go there to have some fun?

    • Myiq2xu says:

      Public pools used to be common in the 50’s and 60’s. Lots of public pools closed not because of racism but because of liability costs and tight budgets. Not only that but use was declining because people started getting backyard pools. And by “people” I mean those racist white people who moved to the suburbs.

    I agree with this comment. 😀

    In other words, “valedictorian” no longer means anything worthwhile.

    • Lulu says:

      In my daughter’s graduating class the valedictorian took not a single advanced class. Not one. She got into UT-Austin (top 10% of their class auto admission) and flunked out sophomore year. She is now a cashier at a convenience store, married with two kids (nothing wrong with that by the way) but not exactly what most people think of as a talented student. Another boy in the same class could not get into honor society and he just graduated with a PhD in physics at age 25. So yeah it all bullshit.

    • 1539days says:

      One guy in my HS class had two doctors for parents. He took most senior year classes at a bigger HS, a few college classes and took about 2 classes in my my smaller parochial school. He didn’t transfer to the big school so he could still be valedictorian.

      I graduated with honors, washed out of physics in college and became an engineer.

    My borough had to go hard core with pool rules. There was a lightening storm so the poolbhad to close. There was a three year old on her own. Parents used it as day care. Now only residents can go and under 16 requires a guardian. Pool opened on Memorial Day but people have already cried racism. Makes no sense as the complainers are all white. Seems parents were using the pool as a baby sitter. It has always been residents only they just didn’t enforce it. After the changeling they are serious. I cannot even imagine what kind of person leaves a three year old alone at a pool. I was familiar with her face but never realized she was on her own. What did she do for food. Guess a number of people were doing the same thing. Other kids were all older than 3 but it was being used as daycare. my 15 year old niece goes swimming with my brat. Small town school has no busses except for charter school(DId you know charter schools get the same money per student as public and transportation has to be provided. 6 kids go to charter school but they ride in a big yellow bus. I live a stone’s throw from PIttsburgh. My zip is Pittsburgh. I walk home from Downtown takes me a little over an hour. City kids use public transportation. Tiny district less than 100 per class has to spend almost a 100 grand to send 6 kids to charter school. That is just the bus fare. I got into heated arguments with mothers. They were saying it’s all Republicans fault that district has to pay oodles for charter schools. I scream read the laws it’s all democrat policies. I live in a tiny town but all transportation to the city goes through my yard. Hundreds of buses run down main street. Create this awful pretend world and then scream republicans hurt our kids. So bizarre. I deal with these people all the time. I say lets keep it short and sweet what do we need for the 3rd grade summer reading program. So insane the books in the park is supposed to be unconnected. No government money no grants just readers sharing books and clothes. World has gone topsey turvey. I a gay great uncle provide a few things for my niece. She is my pain in the arse.

      Cinnamon with sweet potatoes or allspice. That is funny that I made sweet potatoes too this weekend but I made a sweet potato pecan pie.

They put their careers on the line. Such a mess. The money is insane. He uses legal aid and every time the judge makes a decision. He refiles and gets the case moved to another judge. How mad is this he can only see her for 4 hours per week. We have to be outside of where they meet and shechas to have a cell phone. I seriously would not have spent my retirement on lawyers if he was not so awful. He says stuff that remind me of Charles Manson. It is scary. Four years of legal warfare. For two years he could only see her in a closed setting. Once a week. Now my parents sit in a car outside of Dave & Busters. He has not bought her a pair of socks in 8 years but drops 200 on games. She has to have a cell phone. We have to be near. Shit is crazy he is so bad but all things accomodate him. My mom begged the judge to not let him take her to the river. My nephew drowned because his father was high. He was asleep when his kid fought for life. No guilt. He sued and got ten million. He spent it all on drugs. He rents a room by the week. He was Allegheney County’s most wanted. His son my baby girl’s dad is same saga. He gets arrested all the time. My brat is amazing. All A’s. Her father is a criminal. Borderline Sociopath. He operates on a twisted level. He walks down the street checking car doors if they are unlocked he steals everything. Crud is my best friend. She matters to me. I sit in an office and hear he had a rough life. So insane. Warped. Not a chance in hell I will give up. He is 30 and they talk about him like his an infant. I am speechless. All things are pity. He has four DUI’s and seven other charges because someone hurt his feelingz.
    Trust me sit in family court everyone is a victim. My nephew knocked out his girlfriends front teeth. Somehow that becomes his only way to live and self reliance.
    I am probably the worst person that has ever traversed the earth. I am a cold asshole.
    I am limited when it comes to compassion. I am not a bleeding heart..For fucks sake this thing got to me. I had to protect her. I don’t even like her(not true). So wierd she was a throw away kid. No one cared about her. I was her great gay uncle. She has straight A’s and studies French every day.
