Seeing this video over the weekend made my skin curl, my nerves boil and honestly pissed me off. I have a seventeen year old son whom I love dearly and these past few years have made me even more attentive to his moves and actions. My wife and I only have him and to lose him over over aggressive police officers is not something that we want to face. This recent incident in Mckinney, Texas is not only a bad look for the Police Officers invloved, but a reflection on some of the citizens in that town and more so that particular neighborhood.

 

Could this situation have been handled better, most definitely and cooler heads could have prevailed. To me the officers took a I am man, hear me roar type of approach to the situation. Now I am still in agreeance that not all officers of the law or bad cops, but the more and more I see incidents like this, the cloud continues to get darker on that statement. If for some reason, you have not seen this video, and can stomach it. Please see the way these kids were treated and possibly scarred for the rest of their lives.

 

Mckenzie Texas Police Officers harrass and arrest Black Teens at an invited pool party:

This was truly sad and the fact that these kids were trying to enjoy their summer and have a great time with friends has been forever etched in their minds as a all to clear bad reality. I hope that some justice comes to these kids and those that were involved will get dealt with. I remember as a child the first person we were told to look for if we ever got lost or in trouble was a policemen. Unfortunately these days, in some situation this may not be the first option. My prayers go out to the families of the kids who were involved and hope that they can attempt to enjoy the rest of their summer peacefully.
