Collin County’s District Attorney has asked the Texas Rangers to independently investigate the McKinney pool party incident, where a teenage girl was handcuffed and physically restrained by a police officer.
It’s been 20 years since a man named Killis Melton said “it’s too darn hot for a chili cook-off…why don’t we have an ice cream event?”
What happened to McKinney police Corporal Eric Casebolt before that now infamous run-in at Craig Ranch is coming to light.
Attorney Hannah Stroud said the resignation of McKinney Police Corporal Casebolt should not mean the end the investigation into his actions.
An attorney, representing the former McKinney police officer at the center of what some are calling a racially charged incident at a pool party, said her client has been forced to leave his North Texas home and has and is still receiving death threats.
Local, state and national activists gathered in McKinney Wednesday afternoon to question why the former police officer under investigation for his actions at a community pool party was allowed to resign.
The McKinney Police Department remains under fire after a pool party disturbance over the weekend. The officer at the center of the issue has already resigned, and the police chief admitted that his man was out of control.
On a hot day, the sounds of kids splashing around the pool serve as a sign for some. that the Craig Ranch community could be moving forward.
Corporal Eric Casebolt’s resignation was applauded by the only teenager arrested by the former officer last Friday.
Reaction, discussion and debate continue Tuesday over a McKinney police officer’s response to a pool party.
A McKinney police officer’s demeanor, take-down of a teenager and pulling of his weapon are all problematic, according to a law enforcement expert who broke down the video of the pool party incident with CBS 11 News on Monday.
Hundreds of people gathered in competing demonstrations both for and against the actions of McKinney police officer Cpl. Eric Casebolt.
