    Hundreds marched through the Dallas-area city of McKinney on Monday calling for the firing of a police officer seen in a video throwing a bikini-clad teenage girl to the ground and pointing his pistol at other youths at a pool party disturbance.

    McKinney Police Corporal Eric Casebolt has been placed on administrative leave pending an investigation of how he responded to the disturbance on Friday in the city about 30 miles north of Dallas, an incident that has raised fresh questions about racial bias in U.S. policing.

    Casebolt, who is white, is seen shouting obscenities at black youths in a multiracial crowd, shoving a black teenage girl, briefly pointing his gun at African-American youths and throwing the girl in her bathing suit, who is black, to the ground, burying his knees in her back.

    "We are demanding that the officer be fired and be charged with assaulting the youth," said Dominique Alexander, the president of the Next Generation Action Network, which helped organize the rally.

    About 800 people took part in the peaceful rally, carrying signs demanding an end to police brutality and calling for police accountability.

    The incident comes after a string of cases over the past year fueled waves of protests across the United States over what civil rights activists say is law enforcement's unjustified use of force, often lethal, against minority groups.

    The seven-minute video, viewed more than 7 million times on YouTube as of Monday, shows officers responding to the incident, which police said started when scores of youths attended a party with a disc jockey at a community pool and refused requests to leave.

    Civil rights leaders met McKinney officials on Monday and told reporters they saw the officer's actions as being racially motivated. They also said they wanted a U.S. Justice Department probe.

    Casebolt, a 10-year veteran once named the department's patrolman of the year, was questioned by authorities on Monday. He has not spoken publicly about the incident.

    At the start of the video, one officer cordially tells some teens: "Don’t take off running as soon as cops get here."

    Dajerria Becton, the 15-year-old girl thrown to the ground by Casebolt, told broadcaster KDFW the officer twisted her arm and grabbed her by the hair.

    "Him getting fired isn’t enough," she said.

    Several wrote on the McKinney Police Facebook page that the youths antagonized police and they should have obeyed when officers told them to stay put and keep quiet. A few area residents told media the case was about unruly teens and not about race.

    McKinney has about 150,000 people, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. African-Americans make up 10.5 percent of the population and whites about 75 percent.

    Why is this even happening? He quit the next day, and moved out of town with his family because he feared for their safety. :dontknow:

    That kkk sign just pisses me off. These reggies deserve to be forced to sit down and watch video footage and testimony of fellow blacks living in Africa during colonization and post when blacks assumed power.

    Watch what happens when they are left to their own devices because of a genetic lack of iq, high aggression, and nearly impossible narcissism.

    If you hate whites and hate america, get the fuck out. Theres an entire continent of pure shit, disease, and violence where you can build your home. Stop taking my tax dollars to pay for people who hate me while they pump out kids, spend all day committing crimes instead of working, and being responsible for 99.9% of noise pollution in any location they exist in for even mere seconds.

    Maybe a few more of these "protests over nothing" and people will be fed up enough to even bother paying attention. "Crying Wolf" only works for so long.

    Let's count the unnecessarily inflammatory comments from the "press", shall we?

    1. Casebolt, who is white, is seen shouting obscenities at black youths in a multiracial crowd
    *only yelling at the blacks? I need to watch again for this*

    2. throwing the girl in her bathing suit, who is black *the only reason he did this?*

    3. pointing his pistol at other youths
    *did he?*

    4. unjustified use of force, often lethal, against minority groups
    *only "minority" group? check the stats on that*...
    Peter Moskos, an assistant professor at New York City University’s John Jay College of Criminal Justice, has concluded that during the period ranging from May 2013 to April of 2015 roughly 49% of those killed by LEOs were white, while only 30% were black.

    5. Civil rights leaders met McKinney officials on Monday and told reporters they saw the officer's actions as being racially motivated
    *of course, because these types see EVERYTHING as "racially motivated"*

    6. briefly pointing his gun at African-American youths
    *really????*

    7. Dajerria Becton, the 15-year-old girl thrown to the ground
    *with the mouth of a 30-year-old and the sense of a 15-month old*


    "Casebolt, a 10-year veteran once named the department's patrolman of the year"
    *how the fuck did he pull this off???*

    If a cop is rough on teens = yelled out by civil rights activists.

    If a cop shows to be lenient = yelled at by soccer moms who complain to city council.

    Well it has turned a lot more people that were tolerant to the black cause against it. Already set back race relations a few decades. It's definitely a strange time.
