Saying the officer’s actions as seen on video were “indefensible,” the police chief of McKinney, Texas, has acknowledged that Cpl. Eric Casebolt is no longer on the force — he has voluntarily resigned in the wake of the controversy over the handling of a volatile crowd situation that’s drawn national attention.
Though Casebolt’s response to the Texas pool party disturbance has been defended by some, as Western Journalism reported, his rough pinning of a young black girl to the ground and his drawing of his service weapon on a couple of teenagers has come under heavy fire from many critics.
On The Kelly File Tuesday night, Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke spoke with Megyn Kelly about the incident and the officer’s actions. While suggesting that criminal charges against Cpl. Casebolt would not be appropriate, Sheriff Clarke did say he had a “huge problem” with what the veteran lawman did.
