Here’s The Story of The McKinney Pool Fiasco – Part 2
The Origin – The woman who organized the event in McKinney, Texas is named Tatiana Rhodes (or Tatyana Rhodes). DOB 04/02/1995, she is 20-years-old. Most of her social media accounts have now been scrubbed as the publicity expanded and the sunlight upon her endeavors increased.
Tatiana had been promoting a party via twitter under the hashtag name “Dime Piece Cookout” for approximately a month. She planned the event at a sub-division called “Craig Ranch” in McKinney Texas.
The Craig Ranch subdivision has a neighborhood park and a gated pool and clubhouse for residents. The pool and clubhouse is gated and a scan card is needed to gain access. (You an explore via google earth here)
The subdivision has a Homeowners Association (HOA) which regulates and controls the activities in/around the HOA swimming pool and clubhouse and has strict rules for use thereof.
In addition to HOA rules the local community has a resident magazine which provides information to Craig Ranch residents on events and reminders of activities. One of the recent articles covered the use of the recreational facilities to include the pool and clubhouse:
Neither Tatiana Rhodes nor her mother, LaShana Burks, sought permission to use the pool or clubhouse area as part of the event. However, Tatiana hired a DJ and promoted the event to include a pool party:
Note: There are numerous social media links reflecting that Tatiana organizes these “parties”, and charges for attendance, as a profit generating business. Her enterprise name is promoted under the auspices of “Twinzzpromotions” and uses the email address email@example.com:
Tatiana appears to reference herself as a “promoter” for the various parties she organizes as part of twinzzpromotions:
Her business profile says:
“want to throw a party but don’t know where to start – we do it all. Email us for models, promoters, party planners and more”.
The party on Friday was to promote “Make It Clap 2”, an event scheduled for June 19th (8pm to 1am) $5 advance Tix, $8 at event.
Pictured above, Tatiana and her mother Lashana Burks setting up for the party, while tweeting out #dpcookout so far so good.
In addition to friends of Tatiana Rhodes, more than 100 additional people, mostly teens, showed up as a result of the advertising promoted by Tatiana on social media. They were dropped off by the car-load as the afternoon party began.
According to both Tatyana and her mother Lashana they were unable to control the growing crowd – who came to their event at the park looking for and expecting a “pool party”.
That’s when things got out of control as the 100+ teens (and many young adults) turned into a mob of partygoers and began jumping the fence to the gated pool area. Residents within the neighborhood found themselves confronting a mob of teens growing ever increasingly hostile and agitated.
A local resident shares this version of events:
This version is also supported by other residents who called the police for help and were on the scene trying to get the teen mob under control.
The sub-division is culturally very diverse with multi-racial residents. All of the local community -within the rather large sub division- support the version of events as outlined above. Black, White and Hispanic residents all share the same version of events as told via their social media postings above immediately following the crisis.
One of the adult residents of the sub-division sought to get control of the situation and told the teen mob they needed to leave the pool area.
A teen friend of the event organizer (friends wth Tatiana’s brother) is named, ironically, “Grace”, Grace Stone – approximately 14-years-old.
Young Grace Stone became angry because the mob was being told to leave the pool and clubhouse area; Grace was then backed up by her friend Tatiana (party organizer) in a confrontation with an adult resident at the pool. Tatiana then attacked the adult female resident as shown in this video:
Which led to numerous phone calls to the police as the teen mob became ever more confrontational with a security officer and local residents. The mob refused to leave the area. The police arrived.
With hundreds of teens ransacking the area, the first officer on scene immediately called for back-up. Nine additional officers arrived to try and restore order.
The video below is what has driven the media frenzy, however the video does not begin until after the initial fight with Tatiana and the adult resident took place.
HERE is Grace Stone’s version of events:
14-Year-old Grace Stone also spoke to the media, with her father, to share her story:
Tatiana Rhodes (aka @KeefCakezadds via twitter also @KeefCakez and @KeefGoddess ) the woman who organized the party, gave an interview in the aftermath of the events. She goes on camera together with her mother:
The Local Black Grievance Community yesterday held a press conference and begins to organize Black Lives Matter Protesters to travel into McKinney Texas to begin their protests:
The professional and paid Black Grievance advocates arrive on cue:
Only one person was arrested. One of the two men who lunged behind the police officer is Adrian Martin; he was arrested.
If you watch the sequence carefully you can see exactly why the police officer viewed Adrian Martin as a threat. You cannot hear what was said, but based on the physical action of Mr. Martin he presents himself as a physical threat.
Decisions needing to be made in micro-seconds. Again, this entire sequence is less than 6 seconds in real time video.
Notice the officer never actually points his firearm at anyone. After unholstering it and securing it in his hand he keeps the hand gun pointed down toward the ground until re-holstered.
Watch it again:
And of course, like Trayvon Martin and Mike Brown, the President weighs in:
Meanwhile the family of Dajerria Becton (15-yr-old non compliant bathing suit girl), and Jahda Bakari (13-yr-old who tried to push the police officer), are fundraising from the event. The parents and family are also professional black activists:
