It’s good to see common sense people coming forth with this video being blown out of proportion by the media.
McKINNEY, Texas – A local pastor told Breitbart Texas he understood why a McKinney police officer pulled his gun on the two young men who charged towards him as he was attempting to detain a teenage girl. The comment from the pastor, who did not give his name, came during a conversation just prior to Monday night’s march by activists through the McKinney community of Craig Ranch.
“I understand why he pulled his gun,” the pastor told this writer. “A large number of people were charging up to him and he had reason to be afraid.”
While he was attempting to gain control of the girl, who continued resisting, several people – including two older teenage males – charged towards the officer. The two males were particularly aggressive, and one was seen reaching to his waistband on his left side. They charged towards the officer on his gun side, which would put him in a state of concern for control of his weapon, other officers have told Breitbart Texas.
