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.

    What we see is the lack of professional self control resulting in escalation instead of deescalation of events. Us policing is in really bad shape. Yes, that is so powerful, taking down a bikini-wearing girl. No doubt. BTW, did anyone notice the couple of guys roaming around in the video did nothing to help the kids or calm the policeman down?

    It's why cops are so opposed to body cameras. They know they're liars.

    Often. I've witnessed police misconduct in my life, I know its widespread. Even still, I'm sure that the vast majority of police/citizen encounters are amicable, it's the cases like this that need examination. Step one has been made, the officer that perpetrated the act of excessive force has been suspended, they just need to make sure he's properly disciplined so that the right message gets around to other cops.

    You mean the officer was slinging out profanity and just racially targeting one teen after another? That police officer? Who thought 2 young kids coming somewhat close to him when he assaulted a young girl for no apparent reason and then pulled a gun? After which the 2 young boys, scared to death ran away and he sent police officers chasing after them? For what? Being threatened by an over active racially abusive, verbally abusive crazy cop?

    After all that has been happening I would have run and I am white. The 2 boys did not lay a hand on him and still he went dirty Harry on them and the rest of the black boys?

    Sorry, but I am glad he is suspended pending an investigation and I hope the white mother who instigated the problems will be found and arrested for assaulting a minor, wasting police time and for making a false police report.

    I think we already knew your position on that before you stated it.

    Whatever happened to talking to people first? Talking to the teens first before trying to round them up probably would've been better for all involved.

    Apparently, it started with two adult white women using racial slurs against some of the black teens because they didn't like so many blacks in the swimming pool. But if the pool was reserved for a teen pool party, then why they there?

    What is wrong with people, why'd the white women resort to racial slurs, is there anybody that doesn't realize what a problem we have with this already!

    Think about that. Fights instigated by White woman: cop focuses exclusively on detaining Black children.

    PLENTY of cops are out of line, some of them quite often, for a fact. This case will probably go to trial, and right or wrong, that cop's career is probably at an end now.
