McKinney Mob: After action report – Same song, different verse ….

It would appear that the BGI Narrative Weavers are still singing from the same sheet of music.

McKinneyProtestGoing through media reports it appears that familiar actors and entities have quickly inserted themselves into the confrontation, deliberately driving a local issue national. (Sound familiar?)

The rallying point for the BGI foot soldiers in the media and attendant “Social Justice” entities seems to be the viral video of bikini-clad Dajerria Becton being subdued by police after repeatedly ignoring specific instructions to disperse and leave the area.

Many people seem to be mystified how this incident quickly became the top story on major news networks.  To those who have followed the evolution of the Narrative, it isn’t surprising.

Enter a familiar face:  The National Bar Association.

BenCrumpThe National Bar Association, a network of predominantly African-American attorneys, judges and law professors, called for Casebolt’s immediate firing.

“It is insufficient to place him on paid administrative leave, when it is obviously clear that this officer was not enforcing the law, but instead was enforcing his will and power and showing explicit bias towards these African-American teenagers,” the Washington, D.C.-based group said. “The girl is obviously in distress and not in any manner moving or attempting to get away from the officer. She posed no physical threat to the officer.”

However, not everyone actually on the scene who witnessed the interaction first hand agrees with the BGI /National Bar Association manufactured narrative:

Some witnesses in the neighborhood disagreed.

“He grabbed her arm and tried to handcuff her, and she was resisting immediately and she should’ve just stopped at that point,” one white woman, who declined to be identified on camera, told the Fox affiliate. “They were just doing the right thing when these kids were fleeing and using profanity and threatening security guards.”

Becton’s umbrage seems to stem from her belief that she told the officer how to act, and he improperly ignored her commands to him, instead continuing to escalate use of force as she continued to defy his lawful orders:

“He grabbed me, twisted my arm on my back and shoved me in the grass and started pulling the back of my braids,” Becton said. “I was telling him to get off me because my back was hurting bad.”

DajerriaBectonThe ultimate goal in this Narrative doesn’t seem to be just money, or the show of political force by having white LEO who are doing their jobs physically threatened and losing their livelihood.

 

Becton, though, said she wouldn’t be satisfied with Casebolt’s termination.

“Him getting fired is not enough,” she said.

Enter stage left, another familiar group:  the Soros front group NY-based ColorofChange, co-founded by Van Jones.  ColorofChange were instrumental in leveraging the Trayvon Martin shooting to end the Stop-and-Frisk policing policy.

RashadRobinson

The organization’s new Executive Director, Rashad Robinson, is an experienced Narrative weaver .  Before moving to ColorOfChange in 2011, he was the Senior Director of Programs for the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD).

“We strongly urge local officials and Collin County District Attorney to fire Officer Casebolt and charge him with assault and battery. No person who treats another human being, let alone children, in such an abusive, life-threatening manner can be a police officer. All of the officers present at the Craig Ranch pool, who stood by and allowed this police violence to take place must be held accountable and an independent investigation by the Department of Justice should be launched into the McKinney PD. True change begins with accountability.”

And just in case anyone was still unsure as to whether this “outrage” was manufactured or coordinated, the Narrative about “white space” was forefront:

Dehumanizing racial stereotypes about Black girls and boys as ‘inherently wrong’ and ‘out of place’ in white spaces continues to rule the daily lives of Black people.

Robinson was also behind the “hold all officers accountable” campaign to demonize the Ferguson Police force in the Michael Brown confrontation.

    Black people are being murdered in Baltimore at astronomical rates.

    But yet, these people willfully ignore that and they want to focus on McKinney, which is one of the cleanest, safest, calmest communities that you will find anywhere.

    By the way, not one single person was killed, or even injured, in the McKinney police incident.

      They want to destroy all nice things that white people enjoy. If Craig Ranch were entirely filled with wealthy educated blacks and the pool crash incident had occurred exactly the same way as it did, the BGI would be completely silent. It’s only because the neighborhood is mostly white that the BGI takes offense. White people must suffer. White people cannot have nice things.

I do think said community would have been able and willing to deal with it, since they would not be so intimidated as whites would be. Certainly, you are correct. They would NOT have found any of that type of goings-on as acceptable.

          Patternpuzzler – If the roles were reversed, and Blacks had been the residents living in Craig Ranch, they would have been more likely to stand up and get physical with these “lawless trespassers.” This is because Blacks would NOT be fearful of massive “Across the Board” repercussions from the NAACP, SPLC, Color of Change, 90% of the MSM, the President, and the First Lady, the new AG, and White Liberals across the Country and the World. Whites have to watch what they say, and what they do, 24/7. However, I don’t think that Whites living in Russia put up with sort of activity. The Ferguson and Baltimore riots would have been shut down in short order in Russia. The Russian Police would not have accepted rioters burning their Police Cars right in front of them.

              I have trouble with the basic hypothesis. If Craig Ranch residents were primarily educated, well-to-do blacks, the entire thug invasion likely would not have happened. I surmise that thugs are, these days, opportunistically attempting to cause trouble and thereby provoke unfortunate incidents with mainly white police. The Met Life stadium riot may be an exception, but I’m not entirely sure. I also believe that the current rash of riots/violence, etc., has the capacity to become far worse than the late 60’s riots which I lived through, mainly because of the communication and organizing power of social media. No matter how poor people may be, they all manage to have a smart phone.

                Actually, these out-of-control social media parties have been happening for years, all over the country, often in affluent white neighborhoods. The difference is that it’s often large groups of out-of-control WHITE kids who gather at a private home where there is no adult supervision and commence to drinking and drugging and causing mayhem. Usually the police are called, and when the parents get back from wherever they were and find their home trashed, and possibly their little darling in jail, it doesn’t make the national media because it’s all white people. It won’t get media attention if it’s all blacks either. It only becomes a big deal if blacks are getting arrested in a white neighborhood. I suspect if it had been a white teen who started the whole thing and the interlopers had been black AND white, it might not have been such a big story. Of course, if the BGI wasn’t currently out looking for this kind of story to exploit, and if there wasn’t potentially money to be made, it wouldn’t have national attention either. Now how long before this chick files a suit against the city and the HOA for violating her civil rights? Do I hear Parks & Crump on the phone???

    Other blogs are also keeping tabs on the Soros-funded efforts to destabilize local communities in order to implement “international” standards for policing:

    The controversial Obama administration demands for national standards for police, meanwhile, came just a few months after United Nations boss Ban Ki Moon, exploiting the chaos in Ferguson, called for American police to obey “international standards.” Like Ban, the Obama administration seized on the unrest in Missouri — much of it bankrolled by billionaire statist George Soros, it later emerged — to push his radical agenda to strip communities of control over their own police departments. Of course, the Obama administration, and previous presidents, have also been showering local law enforcement with military weaponry — ironically one of the purported justifications for the further federalization of policing.

          Further, if that police force is centralized on a national basis, it can be more thoroughly bureaucratized. It can be made responsible to central, rather than local authority. And professionalized police can be shuffled around and assigned to communities and regions not of their own origin, Texans policing California, Bostonians policing Dallas, etc. This was the technique in the old Soviet Union where the NKVD/MVD (Internal Affairs) assigned their police to duty away from their own home region.

        A national security force (think, SS) will be different in that they will not be at all accountable to local control and will serve an agenda dictated from far away. Expect brutality and politically motivated events to grow exponentially. They won’t have to worry at all about being prosecuted by anyone. They’ll only be worried about getting informed on by others in their organization, if they’re not zealous enough at carrying out their masters’ orders.

        It will be comical, though, to see how hard they’ll crack down on the very thugs the puppet masters above the BGI have used as pawns. We won’t ever hear in the news about the many times the new SS officers get killed by patriots standing their ground, because the media will be locked down even tighter than today. If anything leaks out about such incidents, it will be spun as SS elimination of terrorists or organized criminals–kind of like what we’re seeing from DHS now. Bleak picture, but seems likely, if things keep going the way they are.

            However, I notice that the media in this instance isn’t interested in asking for the multiple 9-11 requests for help to be released.
            Nope.

            According to numerous white witnesses, who refuse to be identified because they have already been threatened, the insults were initiated by Tatyana Rhodes, who also was the first to get physical and assault one of the white women. In the video, you can see a black female pulling the hair of an older white woman, while a second white woman tries to get the black female to move away from the white woman. Tatyana Rhodes also openly bragged about handing out a “beat down” to the white woman.

            This is a familiar refrain. Jeantel’s position that Zimmerman was just supposed to passively take his “ass whopping” from Martin. Apparently the majority of black commenters seem to feel that the white moms, who were enjoying the pool THEY pay for, with THEIR small children, should be subject to verbal and physical abuse. Hey, white lady, just take your “ass whooping”, gnomeimsayin’?

            And they didn’t “host a party”. They marketed/promoted a for-profit event without the appropriate permits or permission. Upon further investigation, nothing is shaking out the way the BGI liars and deceivers are promoting it.

            Even 15 yo Bikini girl who was subdued by Officer Casebolt is backtracking on her story.

    Wait a minute. During the Trayvon Martin case, the BGI continuously repeated the meme that Trayvon would have been alive if George Zimmerman had simply listened to the officer (actually it was a 911 dispatcher who has no police power) who told him to stay in his car and not to follow Trayvon (was told , “we don’t need you to do that” after being asked by the operator was he following the suspect). Now the BGI are telling us that blacks don’t need to follow the instructions given by a police officer if they don’t feel like it. Anyone see the irony here?

    I just posted some stuff about Dajerria in the Mosby thread. It looks like she, like Tatyana Rhodes, has Chicago ties, and might actually be from Chicago. I can’t imagine Texas appreciates Chicago transplants, all belligerent, entitled, and full of anger toward whites (learned in Chicago), who wreak havoc in nice neighborhoods.

    I love the core of downtown Chicago, great architecture, beautiful lake, and so much to do. But in general I hate Chicago because of the massive number of welfare leeches and vast swaths of the city taken over by the criminals and hood rats. I will definitely be leaving, it’s just a matter of when.

    • Liberals in McKinney want more Section 8 housing and they want it in white neighborhoods. Craig Ranch is mostly white and fairly affluent. The average home price there is in the $400,000’s.
      The mother and daughter who planned the party live in Craig Ranch. Maybe this was all a set-up?

            The mother/daughter most probably are renters and most likely not section 8. Section 8 renters do not usually have enough money to contribute to the renting of housing in a higher rent neighborhood and try to have the vouchers cover the total rent.
            Renters within an HOA are a problem, they usually do not even know what the rules are unless the owner makes sure they do. They are always a headache.
            The HOA has every right to go after the owner of the rental for damages/lawyers/security nuisance and disobeying the rules etc. as a result of this little ‘party’. They can fine or sue them as well as charge them for costs and then putting a lien on the property if not paid. The owner then has the right to go after the renter for his losses. I bet little party promoter and mom will not be to happy about this.
            I’m on the board of an HOA I will be bringing up this scenario and what precautions need to be put in place in the event of something like this happening in our complex. We live in different times, scary times.

          That neighborhood is quite modest. Craig Ranch is about 2400 acres, and there are areas backed up to the TPC course with 1 acres lots, and $2.5M price tags. But Craig Ranch North is advertised by the developer as single family from the $150Ks. The houses appear to be appraised around $200Ks, but that is with a big jump in the past two years. The neighborhood was built around 2003-2005 and appraisals from 2004 to 2013 were quite stable going from $150K to $160K. Texas did not have a home bubble, so prices did not plummet in 2008, they just stuck at the same level.

          Craig Ranch even has apartments (about $1000 for a 1 bedroom) with apartment models inexplicably named after areas in New York City: Soho, Greenwich, The Battery, Queens. But no Harlem, South Bronx, or Bed-Stuy.

    This may be nothing but I am trying to connect the dots between paid agitator Deray Mckesson and the Pacific Education Group.

Such as the not punishing black kids for their actions and such-Mckesson has been spending a lot of time according to his twitter account in San Francisco, where PEG is headquartered and Oakland.

    Here’s my take on the video of the cop pulling his gun (tried to post this on a more appropriate thread but comments are apparently turned off).
    It appears to me that the guy in the blue shirt is circling to his left while simultaneously cocking his right arm back and making a fist. The stance he is taking while doing this is one of lowering his body and putting his feet in position to hurl a blow to the officer who is crouched down over the girl. He is circling to the left to get out of the officer’s line of sight so he can deliver a sucker punch to the side of the officer’s head. The accomplice is likewise circling behind the guy in blue to deliver a second blow. I may be wrong, but that’s what it looks like to me.

    The “child” who started it all IS being charged!!!

    Tatiana Rhodes (aka Tatyana Rhodes) DOB 04/02/1995 (that makes this ‘child’ 20 YEARS OLD) is being charged with assault after she physically attacked 3 teenaged White girls and their mother. Even though Tatiana and her mother, Lashana, had been promoting this cookout on various social media sites under the name “Dime piece cookout” for over a month,neither of these two “ladies” had sought permission from the HOA to have this event. The maximum amount of people allowed at a reserved event is 20, and all fees must be paid in advance. The reservation does NOT limit the other homeowners from accessing the area at the same time and the people attending the event MUST adhere to ALL community rules while on the property. The pool, park, and clubhouse are all in a locked, gated area that requires a scan card to enter. The rules are posted in every homeowners welcome packet when they purchase their home as well as being clearly posted at the pool and clubhouse and were even reiterated in the community monthly magazine in May. Apparently, Tatiana has been promoting these “events” all over town and charges admission. She promotes this as a BUSINESS under the name “TwinzzPromotions” and advertises “models, promoters, party planners, and more”. In addition to Tatiana, Lashana, employees and personal friends of theirs, over 100 teenagers began swarming the park because of all the social media promoting the event as “cookout and pool party” The teenagers (some as young as 12) were walking around in the open smoking pot and drinking alcohol. When these “angels” were told to leave they became irate and began attacking people. These sweet innocent angels have proven they are completely incapable of controlling themselves. They kicked in doors to houses, threatened to shoot homeowners and their families, stole one homeowner’s truck and rammed into half a dozen parked cars, broke into cars and stole things from inside them as well as breaking into garages and sheds and stealing everything that is not nailed down.

    The media took a very tiny portion of a video and made it seem as if the cop was completely at fault and that this all happened because some poor innocent black children wanted to swim in the mean old White people’s pool but that is NOT what happened here.

      I don’t think so. You have to do your own research to determine if Sec. 8 vouchers or properties are there. You may not be able to tell if vouchers are in use for rental properties, as that would be between the tenant and landlord. As always, price is the best indicator (sec. 8 isn’t going to pay for multi-1000s/month rentals) and proof that green is the only color that really matters.

              Yes, the white teen was “reluctant” to tell her father what happened initially… and then her story nicely aligned with the narrative being created by the black teens. Think how quickly the “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” narrative was created and advance immediately in the aftermath of the Michael Brown incident. The “Section 8” racial slur is a hot button meme, just like “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot”. It’s also completely false and those spreading it have nothing to substantiate their claims. The police have been conducting interviews and the majority of witnesses inside the pool state that the trouble was started by Tatyana and teens who were jumping the fence and creating an unsafe situation.

              Tatyana also bragged on her twitter feed about dishing out a beat down to one of the white women, she was pretty gleeful about that. Now she is trying to scrub it all, but it was posted on the earlier thread.

              The fact that the Deray BGI SWAT team was on site with their pre-printed signs, press releases and meme indicates that this was a set-up and deliberate provocation.

            Well Grace admitted to police that “she was involved.” So of course they lawfully detained her for the purpose of investigating her involvement. The handcuffs were reasonable because the police were dealing with a number of suspects and they needed to prevent detainees from escaping while they rounded up the other suspects.

            I made a point below that obstruction laws are difficult to apply. Here, Donnie repeatedly questioned officers why his daughter was in handcuffs. While Donnie’s questions are free speech, his conduct borders on obstruction. The officers cannot investigate the detainees while they entertain Donnie’s questions. Donnie’s questions essentially interfered with the investigation, and while the law gave him some leeway to question the police, he would have likely been arrested for obstruction had he persisted with his questions.

      Oh boy. Jahda Bakari’s father is Jahi Adisa Bakari, originally from the St. Louis area, including a stint in the wasteland of East St Louis, the home of Tracy Martin. It makes me wonder if Jahi Bakari is his real name. Anyway, dude has non-profit called The Bakari Institute which used to be based in St. Louis but is now based in Richardson TX. The mission is “to provide and promote cultural and vocational arts programs that fight juvenile delinquency by creating economic opportunities for at-risk youth”. My scam radar is sounding an alarm. Why don’t any of these people have straightforward lives, like mine? Fake businesses, non-profits, foreclosures, criminal records, multiple concurrent addresses…. seriously, this is nuts.

      But perhaps more importantly, the Bakaris do not live in Craig Ranch. So why was Jahda at the pool?

        Why am I not surprised. This had to have been orchestrated from the start. A local news station interviewed someone (I didn’t catch his name), and he said (paraphrasing) “This had better be handled or we’re bringing in-“, he then said 3 names, one of them was Anthony Shaheed. I didn’t recognize the other two names, so they are probably local or small time agitators. If this pool party didn’t explode, they would have tried at the next one scheduled in Plano. One way or another, they were going to get things riled up in Texas.

    Still FOX news which should be objective always starts out with the MSM narrative how sickening to see a young girl treated like that. Come on….what’s up with these anchors before they know or check into what started it how the guys came in behind the cop definitely looking for a sucker punch and what about the name. Why paly the CNN version of video. Dime piece production.???? That refers to a ten dollar piece of crack they sell on the street. The mother names her party production company after drugs.??? Whooaa great role model. This was a setup folks and FOX news should know the BGI better than to drive their narrative. The BGI is bustin’ the white neighborhood by starting incidents. Please don’t help them FOX anchors.

  27. According to ColorOfChange’s Rashad Robinson:

    All of the officers present at the Craig Ranch pool, who stood by and allowed this police violence to take place must be held accountable

    This is not simply about creating ressitance to, and suspicion of, the police (AKA the FTP movement) but what Robinson (and the BGI as a whole) is trying to do is plant a seed of doubt in the minds of other officers. Part of the “agenda” is to make the officers 2nd guess themselves, and each other, thereby dividing the police forces and further fracturing the administration of the law.

    Out of all the BlackLivesMatter police incidents, this is probably the most complicated one. Because of that, the low-fo BlackLivesMatter types will likely get this one wrong (again).

    Let me first say that Casebolt was justified in drawing his gun based on CTH’s analysis. Let me also say that this case is not about race, much to the chagrin of the community agitators. Instead, this case is about a law that is difficult for police and citizens to apply. Did Casebolt apply Texas’s Obstruction Law correctly?

    Texas Penal Code Section 38.15(a)(1) states, “A person commits an offense if the person with criminal negligence interrupts, disrupts, impedes, or otherwise interferes with a peace officer while the peace officer is performing a duty or exercising authority imposed or granted by law.” However, subsection (d) makes clear that “it is a defense to prosecution under this section that the interruption, disruption, impediment, or interference alleged consisted of speech only.”

    http://codes.lp.findlaw.com/txstatutes/PE/8/38/38.15

    In a nutshell, free speech is a defense to obstruction. The difficulty arises when free speech turns into obstructive conduct. In the example video below, a white sovereign citizen type protests the lawfulness of a traffic stop. His initial criticism of the stop was protected under subsection (d). However, his protests turned into obstruction when he repeatedly failed to obey the police officer’s order to provide ID.

    So how does Section 38.15 apply to Dajerria, the girl Casebolt took down? After Casebolt detains the boys in the grass, he orders Dajerria’s group to leave. Members of Dajerria’s group verbally protest Casebolt’s order. They even approach Casebolt, which brings us closer to 38.15(a)(1) territory. Dajerria turns and verbally challenges Casebolt’s order as she is walking away. Casebolt detains Dajerria as she is walking away. (2:50). We don’t know how many times Dajerria was told to leave prior to the detention; however, she ultimately (or should I say momentarily) complied with Casebolt’s order when he detained her.

    This is really a close case. How many times does the officer have to give the order and how much leeway does the citizen have to verbally challenge that order before Section 38.15(a)(1) is triggered? I think because it is such a close case, the officers used discretion in not charging Dajerria with obstruction.

    But this raises another question. If Dajerria did not commit obstruction, did the other guy commit obstruction when he aggressively approached Casebolt as he was detaining Dajerria?

    Remember for Section 38.15(a)(1) to apply, Casebolt must have been performing a duty or exercising authority imposed or granted by law. So if Casebolt did not have lawful authority to detain Dajerria for obstruction, the other guy did not obstruct Casebolt within the meaning of 38.15(a)(1). This is a highly technical defense and I think the guy’s only hope is to persuade a judge. It is too technical to persuade a jury. Plus, the facts are against the guy. It will be hard for the jury to not find the guy guilty of something given his aggressive stance towards a peace officer. That is just a no-no in practically every situation.

    Personally I think the DA should charge the guy with assault or disorderly conduct. Failure to add other charges could result in an acquittal for obstruction, and we don’t want people getting away with taking aggressive stances towards peace officers.

    The foregoing highlights the difficulty in applying obstruction laws. It is wise to follow orders from police officers. However, we also have free speech; it is a Constitutional right that the government cannot criminalize. The line between free speech and obstructive conduct is difficult to ascertain. If anything, even if Casebolt unlawfully detained Dajerria, he should not be charged with assault and battery for relying on a statute that is very difficult to apply. Especially given the tense situation where Casebolt was attempting to control a number of youth by himself while being verbally challenged by practically all of them.

      The girl wasn’t charged…

      Being detained, even handcuffed, is not being arrested. I am completely unsure what your point is. The only person charged with obstruction was one of the males that tried to attack the officer while he was handcuffing the girl. He was the only person charged in the entire incident.

        Sorry if my point wasn’t clear. My point is that this case is not about racism, it is about a law that is difficult for police and citizens to apply. Also, Casebolt should not be charged with a crime even if Dajerria’s detainment was unlawful. Police officers should be given leeway for mistakes. They have a difficult job.

    Something Ive noticed a lot in my life and see playing out again here is how blacks and whites in America view private property in completely different ways.

    Whites will respect others private property and understand that not everything is for them.

    Blacks, on the other hand, have little to no conception of this idea and believe that everything and every place is all for them, all the time.

    The percentage of Black lawyers, judges, and professors has to be a VERY small percentage of our population since Blacks comprise only 13% overall. There seems to be a concentrated effort by Hollywood and the Media to make that number appear to be much closer to 50%. I’ve noticed the same deceptive optics happening with the LGBT community, in that there is over-representation in the public forum, movies, books, magazines, and ‘News.’
    Just an observation on my part.

  34. This isn’t a race issue more that it is a cultural issue. The black community think they have different rules to abide by than the rest of us. They think that because white privilege has oppressed them they can do and say whatever they want. They are continuously reminded of their victimhood. They have been brainwashed into believing this crap and to revolt against anything that does not please them. They hit the trifecta if a white, male, cop is involved, they have done hit the jackpot. Winner winner chicken dinner and they all-everyone & everywhere- know this.

    Right on Mist’ears Mom ! Spent the last ten years dealing with the exact ‘problem’ you describe ! Simple requests or orders – even when it was explained they were given for inmate safety – were met with defiance. Female inmates were particularly troublesome in this regard as any CO that’s worked in a female facility will attest.

    No reason for their kids ‘outside’ to act any different !
