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.
