I'm surprised to see such a development so quickly. Now lets see what the police chief has to say about this ordeal.




McKinney Police Chief Greg Conley said Casebolt's actions were “indefensible” during a Tuesday evening press conference.



“He came into the call out of control and as the video shows was out of control during the incident.” Conley said. “I had 12 officers on the scene and 11 of them performed according to their training.”



“Our policies, our training, our practice do not support his actions,” Conley said.

If you look at the video, when he pulled the gun on the two teens that came to the girls rescue, even his officers knew he went too far, they ran over to him with kinda "dude chill" and proceeded.

The pool party escalated quickly tho.. few people jumped the fence and entire pool party gets raided like its a drug bust. I seen officers acts better during actual drug busts.

He was out of control. If you watch the whole video he is the same cop that falls down on his way to the altercation . He looked and felt an ass and his ego got hurt so he took it out on the kids .

But the worst part of the whole situation and what the police chief left out is. He was the senior officer on the scene. I agree 12 officers responded 11 acted normally. But the senior man was the man out of control. What does that say about that department training?

Agreed. These cops get horrible training these days and very little ongoing training as it relates to de-escalation and baton and hand to hand and what to do in a chaotic situation. It's pathetic.

The barrel roll is what pushes this story over the top.

Now on the other hand. I cannot complement the two officers enough that stopped him when he drew his gun . I doubt they would testify, but they certainly stopped things from escalating even more horribly .

When I saw that I thought the same thing. They potentially stopped this situation from becoming even worse.

I can absolutely see how having the senior officer on scene being the one out of control can make a situation worse then it has to be. Not sure how comfortable most underlings feel about calling out their superior in the field but as this incident shows us, it is sometimes necessary.

Perhaps the family of the girl he assaulted will be giving him a going away lawsuit.

Those were my thoughts too. I wonder where the liability will fall now, he doesn't have a taxpayer bailout behind him? should get interesting.

I could be mistake, but I remember hearing this senior officer was also an instructor for the PD. This must be the newly adopted (from the Military) OFFICIAL policy of "Shock & Awe" in the American streets.

Further justification why it should be mandatory that all LEO's wear body cameras (that are "tamper" proof)

"Do as I say, not as I do" has had it's day - time for full accountability.

If LEO's know that their actions are being recorded they will chill the f### out and enforce assertively - not aggressively.

Seemed that not even the teenage girl in the bikini that he was sitting on top of was "Shocked and Awed"


I cannot understand why the other officers didn't come and pull him off the girl.
He looked like King Kong sitting on her; he was so pleased with himself and seemed to feel so powerful.

So which facts would you suggest are the most relevant to the fact that the offending officer resigned and the police chief said the offending officers actions were indefensible?

That's all fine and dandy that the event got out of control and needed the cops to be called. It was how the one acted once they got there.

The girl was grabbed for talking back, last time I checked that is not illegal.

With all the championing of free speech we got going on we should know that. As that is exactly what it is for.

Nobody wants the truth.

There are agendas to be pushed here.

Cue Sharpton.

Are you guys able to get past the racial stuff and talk about how the officer acted?

Resisting arrest / talking back is going to get you thrown to the ground. Particularly when a situation is already somewhat out of control. It really is that simple. If you look at the screen shot breakdown in the link I provided, it clearly shows why the officer drew his weapon.

I'm a black male, so I know what it is like to fear cops. However, my dad was a copy and taught me early on how to interact with police. It was really simple. STFU, say Yes, Sir & No, Sir. He drove into my head even if I thought the cop was wrong, the side of the road or wherever is not where you try to play Johnny Cochran and argue with the police. Just STFU and deal with it when you get home. Cops are already on edge because they don't know who they are dealing with, so mouthing off is just going to escalate a situation and make it worse.

Given how weak kneed the politicians and everyone has gotten, I'm not surprised the cop resigned. I wouldn't want to be a cop in this environment and the politicians are more concerned about their careers than standing up for some low ranking officer.

I'm not saying cops are perfect by any means, but this constant Monday morning quarter backing of every little thing is going to have some very bad consequences for the general public. Police are afraid to do their jobs.
