Government is Violence & Deception. From [HERE] The family of a McKinney teen who was arrested at a pool party in 2015 has reached a settlement with the city over accusations of excessive force by police.

In a complaint filed in federal court in December 2016 a Black family was seeking damages of more than $5 million and alleging that a white McKinney police officer used excessive force while restraining a 15-year-old during the break-up of a pool party in 2015.

Cellphone videos taken by people at the pool showed the former police officer, David Eric Casebolt, who is white, running after black teens and ordering them to the ground, then forcing the teen girl, Dajerria Becton, onto her stomach and placing his knees on her back.

At one point, Casebolt drew his firearm after two young black men charged forward in apparent protest of the girl's treatment but holstered the weapon when two other officers intervened. A random white neighbor appears in the video to help white cops carry out their official oppression. 

Casebolt was one of a dozen officers who responded to the 911 disturbance calls at the pool. Casebolt resigned five days after the incident occurred. McKinney Police Chief Greg Conley called Casebolt’s actions at the pool “indefensible” and said “he came into the call out of control and the video showed he was out of control during the incident.” The 

A grand jury declined to indict Casebolt in June 2016.

The complaint alleges that Casebolt used excessive force, committed assault and unlawfully detained a minor child, Dajerria Becton. The lawsuit also states that the city and police officials failed to provide McKinney officers with proper training and failed to provide adequate policy direction to protect residents from having their rights violated.

The party occurred on June 5, 2015, and was a celebration of the end of school at the Craig Ranch North subdivision community pool. The party was attended by an estimated 100 teens, many who were African-American children. The teens live in the Craig Ranch community, an upscale planned community in North Texas. [MORE]

Police were called by workers and residents asserting that a fight had taken place and that African-American children who were not invited to the party had climbed the fence to get access. Witnesses said a fight did occur when a white resident allegedly swore at a black resident and told her to return to public housing.
