Cops Who Crashed A High School Pool Party With Guns Pulled Might Need To Switch To Decaf

MSNBC – A police officer in McKinney, Texas, has been placed on administrative leave after a video surfaced showing him wrestling a bikini-clad 14-year-old girl to the ground and aggressively confronting other teens at a pool party, police said Sunday.

Police officers were first called to the scene about 7:15 p.m. (8:15 p.m. ET) Friday to respond to a disturbance at the Craig Ranch Community North Pool in the Dallas area. Several more calls came in reporting that juveniles at the pool were “actively fighting,” police said.

McKinney Police Chief Greg Conley said officers who arrived on scene “encountered a large crowd that refused to comply with police commands.” Eventually, 12 officers converged on the party, he said. No one was injured, he said.

Brandon Brooks, who shot the video on his phone, said he found out about the pool party on Twitter. He was leaving the pool with his friend when he heard of a fight outside. Brooks said that the fight was over when cops arrived but that they started chasing people and throwing them on the ground.

“When I started the video was right after all the kids who got put on the ground had gotten up and ran away. The cop was chasing after all those kids just putting every black person he saw on the ground,” Brooks said in an email to NBC News.


Sure you might think it’s a bit silly to come in guns ablazing to a pool party with a bunch of high school kids. And sure maybe roughing up a teenage girl in a bikini, grabbing her by her hair and smashing her face into the ground (part is at 3:15) isn’t a “smart move.” But what does it say on that police shield? Protect. And. Serve. Who knows what these kids were capable of! Maybe they would have splashed someone or taken selfies or talked about their favorite Migos song. Where does it end if the cops don’t step in and heroically put a stop to these menaces to society in the most aggressive way possible?
