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.

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?
