    The Washington Post wasted no time in explaining why 200 black people at a private pool in McKinney, Texas attacked members of the club, bullied their children, destroyed their property, and assaulted their security guard when he invited them to leave. White racism. “America’s swimming pools have a long, sad, racist history,” intoned the Post a few days after the now infamous episode of aquatic black mob violence. “They’ve long been contested spaces where we express prejudices that otherwise remain unspoken.” The Post columnist, Jeff Wiltse, knows all about that because of all the bad things that happened 80-90 years...

    The resignation on Tuesday of McKinney, Texas policeman Eric Casebolt after the widespread viewing of a video showing Casebolt drawing his gun and brutalizing a teenager outside a pool party may not be enough to bring justice, suggests Judge Andrew Napolitano. Napolitano, in a Fox Business interview, argues that it would be proper to prosecute Casebolt. Reviewing the video footage, Napolitano explains to host Stuart Varney that Casebolt, who Napolitano calls a “hothead,” appears to have committed an illegal assault: Varney: The police officer could be guilty of a crime? Napolitano: Oh sure, it’s an assault for him to pull...

    NORTH MIAMI, Fla. (WSVN) – North Miami Senior High School's principal has been removed from his position after he took to social media to voice his opinion on a police controversy in Texas involving an officer who was caught on video pushing a black teenage girl to the ground outside a pool party and brandishing his gun at other teens.

The post itself has since been removed but not before catching the eyes of others and causing passionate responses he may...
  • Liberal Hysteria? Or Liberal Hypocrisy?

    06/11/2015 11:30:05 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 14 replies ^ | June 11, 2015 | Mark Nuckols
    Liberals are prone to two particularly unattractive behaviors: hysteria and hypocrisy. And because these two behaviors so often go hand in hand, it is hard to tell sometimes whether liberals have succumbed to hand wringing hysteria or are engaged in cold calculating hypocrisy. And when you factor in liberals’ ignorance and susceptibility to delusion, it can be difficult to even know how self-aware they are of their own duplicity. The most recent sanctimonious bleating over a minor incident in some Texas suburb has all the elements of the same ritual we see over and over. In this case, a white...
  • Mulling McKinney: A New Normal

    Based on the recent firestorm surrounding the events in McKinney, Texas, it appears the ‘new normal’ threshold for demanding swift justice and national condemnation of police officers is a short video clip followed by social media outrage. There is more to the McKinney incident than 20 seconds of video, but it is that image of a white uniformed police officer using force on a black teenage girl which has again inflamed a nation too eager to cry racism when it comes to the work of our cops. The video clip is disturbing taken out of context of the remainder of...

    There's a war on cops going on and there's also a war against those who dare to defend them.In case you've missed it, there's yet another controversy over how police handled a group of rowdy teenagers at a pool party in McKinney, Texas. After repeatedly asking a young black woman to leave the area, a white police officer (because every time a white police officer does anything to a black person it's racist, you know) threw her to the ground in an attempt to conduct an arrest. When two of the woman's male friends ran up behind the officer, he...

    A Frenship teacher said she apologized after writing a Facebook post saying she was “almost to the point” of wanting segregation regarding a racially charged police issue in McKinney. Karen Fitzgibbons, a teacher at Bennett Elementary School, told A-J Media she deleted the post Wednesday evening — a day after writing the publicly viewable post on her Facebook page. Asked about the post, a Frenship ISD spokesman said such matters are “taken very seriously.” Fitzgibbons started the post by saying a McKinney police officer’s resignation after a dispute at a swimming pool made her angry and that the officer should...

    MCKINNEY, Texas (AP) — A white police officer recorded on video pushing a black girl to the ground at a North Texas pool party resigned from the police force Tuesday. Officer David Eric Casebolt's actions were "indefensible," McKinney Police Chief Greg Conley said at a press conference after the officer submitted his resignation. But Casebolt was not pressured to quit the force, Conley said. A teenager at the party posted a video online showing the officer pushing a bikini-clad girl to the ground and brandishing his gun to other black teens when officers responded last Friday to calls about the...

    On Tuesday, Dennis L.A. White, an actor known for portraying Damion 'D-Roc' Butler in the biopic "Notorious," issued a tweet suggesting violence against the daughters of Eric Casebolt, the former McKinney, Texas, police officer whose actions at a pool party incident sparked protests. The tweet has since been taken down, but not before being captured for posterity. Jim Hoft of the Gateway Pundit was one of those who captured White's message before it was removed. "What if we found eric casebolt's (sic) family & beat up the young girls in it," he tweeted. "Would that b fair? If u live...
  • McKinney Overreactions Hinder Quest to Fight Real Racism

    One of the most unfortunate by-products of the McKinney, Texas, pool party aftermath is the lost opportunity for a constructive evaluation of police performance. The now-infamous video says vastly different things to different people, but one thing stands out as a resounding majority view: Something went very wrong as an already tense situation was exacerbated by the language and behaviors of one police officer, Eric Casebolt, who resigned Tuesday. So we are left to evaluate the reactions that led up this, which have ranged from measured to presumptuous to downright reckless. In the era of Ferguson and Baltimore and the...

    McKinney, Texas, has joined Ferguson, Missouri, and Baltimore as cities known not for their business, tourism, climate or economy, but as communities torn apart by racial controversy. The Texas town has been targeted by protesters since a video of a white police officer confronting a mostly black crowd of teenagers went viral, leading to claims of police brutality. But some commentators say the drama in Texas is the latest case of racial agitators deliberately dividing Americans for their own personal gain.
