Just watch.

(The Grio)The incident reportedly took place this weekend in McKinney, Texas - where a resident was having a pool party. Allegedly, neighbors were concerned about the large group of black children who were in attendance at the event, and called the police to intervene. Authorities arrived immediately to the predominately white neighborhood and proceeded to chase and handcuff the frightened partygoers without providing much information as to why. At one point in the clip, an officer can be seen pinning a young girl in a bathing suit facedown into the grass while grabbing her by her braids. She and her friends hysterically scream as she is cuffed. The adults in the neighborhood are seen helplessly watching on as the girl sobs. All throughout the clip several detained young boys try to explain to the police that they just arrived to the scene and were not involved in whatever complaints had been made. They also appear confused as to why they have been cuffed. The video ends with the officer chastising the boys for “being part of the mob.”

Wow. The officer shown brutally manhandling a teenage girl above, Eric Casebolt, has his own YouTube account: youtube.com

And he has a playlist of “police training videos,” some of which are blatantly racist in nature. And get a load of this — Casebolt added the video of the pool party incident to his playlist:

(UPDATE: the playlist has now been deleted.)

Here’s a screenshot of Casebolt’s playlist at YouTube, just in case the video suddenly disappears from it; it’s the last one on the list, at the bottom:
