Officer Eric Casebolt, who was seen blatantly manhandling Black teens at a  McKinney, Texas pool party in video footage that went viral, has resigned. The cop who was apparently afraid of teen girls in swimsuits had been on administrative leave. 

Reports CNN:

At a press conference Tuesday announcing Casebolt’s resignation, the city’s police chief called his actions in the video indefensible.

“Our policies, our training, our practice, do not support his actions,” Police Chief Greg Conley said. “He came into the call out of control, and as the video shows, was out of control during the incident.”

​Officials previously had said Casebolt was on administrative leave as police investigated what happened. Now that he has decided to resign, the internal affairs investigation is closed, and it’s too soon to say whether he’ll face charges over what happened, Conley told reporters.

“We’re continuing an investigation. We are continuing looking into all the allegations that are being presented to us, and any part of a criminal investigation regarding anyone will take a matter of time for us to work through all those allegations and those people who have come forward to us to complain,” he said.

Wait, the internal investigation is closed? It’s too late for a cover up, Chief Conley.

Also, will Casebolt still receive a cushy pension or nah?

As more details emerge, it seems an altercation started near the pool arty when a white woman started hurling racial slurs at Black kids during an argument.
