He must have known he was going to be thrown under the bus.
Mark Levin has been screaming this misinformation. He wasn’t the first on the scene. You see him arriving and doing his barrel roll stunt with the other reinforcing cops. The other cops come over to his area when he’s being abusive.
And, the kids came over closer when he was bashing a 14yo girl onto the concrete. Then retreated as quickly as possible, with the cop only pulling his gun after they had retreated quite a ways away from him.
> JMHO but they didnt escalate and helped keep this incident from getting all the way out of control.
That one officer definitely escalated the situation. He definitely appeared to have control issues but then again I wasn’t there. Becoming a police officer is definitely becoming a less desirable profession since The One ascended the throne.
IIRC, this guy was one of three who was surrounded by a gang of kids who were not responding to lawful orders.
So those eleven the chief is referring to were NOT the first ones on the scene.
My take is the chief is throwing the cop under the bus.
This is worth repeating.
It seems quite possible, given the speed of the resignation.
There are rumors of another video out there. I hope it exists, and hope it shows enough to be useful.
Did this not start as an illegal gate crashing incident by folks who were not invited?
The winning posting.
A number of conservative sites I have visited since this recent incident I have noticed myself a few trolls have been showing up.
“Mark Levin has been screaming this misinformation. He wasnt the first on the scene. You see him arriving and doing his barrel roll stunt with the other reinforcing cops. The other cops come over to his area when hes being abusive.”
I’m on Mark Levin’s side, not yours. Your viewpoint is colored (pardon the pun) by a distinct dislike of police, methinks. Mark’s objective here, you, not so much...
The point is a simple fact of the case—not anti- or pro-police bias.
Can Freepers not handle simple facts anymore?
Sadly as I had posted before, I have noticed on a few conservative sites trolls coming in to cause trouble since this most recent incident.
The who issue was about a number “gate crashing” teens who were not invited to the party to begin with, more then the actions of a police officer.
I agree that that has been lost—because of the one goony cop.
This is the era of smartphone video, and you can’t have a white cop beating on a 14yo black girl in a bikini in a predominantly white neighborhood without causing an uproar.
Because of Obama’s gang’s Alinsky campaign to rub the black community raw about white police brutality against them, way too much of the country has the idea that white on black crime, albeit by cops, is far greater a problem than black on white crime—when law enforcement isn’t around.
I blame BOTH the kids who gate crashed and the police officer whom I believed had a major meltdown in this incident.
I may be old-fashioned, but if you did get an invite to a private party, you just do not go, period. Gate crashing a party just simply lowers my respect in my eyes. From what I have heard, there was not supposed be more then 20 kids at that party.
On the police officer, he either had a complete meltdown and ended up acting like a rouge or was on a power trip. Either way, there are NO winners in this incident.
“Being first on the scene, this cop got the brunt of the mob turmoil.”
He was not first on the scene. The chaotic event had already been going on long before he arrived. And the scene he arrived at was not ground zero. This was crowd control. He was trying to keep them from going back to the main scene.
I agree—though a beating by the cops is probably not the due punishment.
I wish I knew the facts better. It does look like the rules are no more than 20 to a party, but also the “hosts” claim that most of the attendees were classmates and from the neighborhood. If so, were they entitled to go to the pool on their own and not officially count as part of the 20?
I really don’t know. I’ve also read that they had obscene, loud rap music blasting, etc. Don’t know if any of that is true.
And the cop screaming at the kids with profanity when issuing his instructions was also totally uncalled for. Looked like he’d watched far too many cop shows on TV.
Even after all this, there are still way too many questions to be answered. Even I am left with questions myself.
When I say I blame BOTH the former cop and the gate crashing kids, other posters here and on other sites view my comment with surprise. But it is because there is still way too many questions that need to be answer first.
IMO there’s definitely fault on both sides.
“Stop saying everything is fine now, and its all settled. It isnt. The rage is just below the surface, and a lot of that pent up rage is on the part of very much maligned police officers throughout the U.S. while our own half black, but thats the half that counts Prez and his thug regime constantly stir the pot of racial divide, class warfare and hostility towards its own citizens.”
I’m talking about McKinney specifically.
Not what may happen somewhere else.
The incident in McKinney is over.
“No it isn’t. Even in the article, one of the racist agitators said the policeman resigning is a start, but it isn’t over.”
Well I’m sure there will be a lawsuit or a settlement.
But I said that before.
