McKinney Pool Officer Will Not Face Charges
Remember that shocking video of a cop slamming a bikini clad black girl in McKinney, Texas???
Well the officer involved, Eric Casebolt, will not face any criminal charges after a grand jury decided not to indict him.
A grand jury has cleared the McKinney Police officer seen on video forcing a teenage girl to the ground outside a pool party last year.
Seven minutes of video posted to YouTube put Eric Casebolt and the city of McKinney in the national spotlight in June 2015.
In that video, Cpl. Eric Casebolt is seen using profanity and aggressively throwing a 15-year-old girl in a bathing suit to the ground, face down, outside a pool party in Craig Ranch. He then appeared to pin her down with his knees.
A Collin County grand jury on Thursday determined there was not enough evidence to warrant criminal charges against Casebolt, who was a 10-year veteran of McKinney PD.
Dejarria Becton is the girl in the bikini.
“What he did wasn’t right,” she said. “I think more should have been done. I don’t think he should have just walked away.”
The Texas Rangers completed an investigation into the incident in January. The results of that investigation were given to the district attorney’s office and then presented to the grand jury.
The full results have not been made public.
SMH…of course the officer got off.
Are YOU even remotely surprised that the grand jury voted in favor of the cop???
