There is something out there in America that is sinister, contagious and highly viral and it is stripping the nation of what is left of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King’s dream and legacy. It is the perpetuation of racism by any means necessary, as a business. There are many who economically benefit directly and indirectly from its financial rewards, as is the case of race baiters who came to Ferguson, Missouri, Baltimore and now show up in McKinney, Texas.
You Tube videos are the current vehicle of choice by the racial provocateur. A seven minute video is edited down to a racially highly charged snippet and then shared in social media and by mainstream media. In some cases the phone camera video can clarify shameful law enforcement conduct, while in other situations the edited version bears no resemblance to even showing the whole story of police officers and their interaction with a potential complaintant.
It is clear to McKinney, Texas Chief Greg Conley that Officer David Eric Casebolt, 41, was “Out of control,” according to Fox News. The short version of the video shows officer Casebolt shoving a bikini-clad black, teenage girl forcefully to the ground. He then pulled his gun on two black teens who were communicating with the teen girl.
The rush to judgment comes into play for the race baiting experts when they jump to conclusions in determining the basis or rationale for his conduct in responding to complaints about the pool party at the community-owned McKinney swimming pool. Casebolt has resigned and Chief Conley concluded, “The actions of Eric Casebolt, as seen on the video of the disturbance at the community pool, are indefensible,” reported Fox News.
Again, while indefensible, the conduct does not mean that he was acting racist or that his intent was more than being over-reactive and clearly outside of standard police procedure. Yet, the airwaves and social media police conduct experts were again playing the same game of hyping up racism as the only conclusion for Casebolt’s actions.
Did Officer Casebolt’s behavior rise to the level of being racially motivated which has resulted in calls for his arrest, trial and imprisonment? The evidence does not bear it out once any reasonable person has a look at the longer version of the video which has been seen by millions of Americans. It shows disruptive behavior by groups of teens, verbal and physical fights as does other videos from the same incident.
But like clockwork, the racial blame predators that hone in on any real or largely imagined racist conduct by police have descended upon the north Dallas, Texas suburb with a vengeance. The rush to judgment by the cretins of racial anarchy was being voiced on national airwaves even before any real investigation had been conducted. After all, the business of racial provocation demands quick angry and emotional responses and evidence is irrelevant.
The engines that drive the racism pimping business have to be fed and the fuel is found quite easily on mainstream media broadcasts as well as in social media venues like YouTube, Facebook and Twitter. Any real proof of guilt or innocence is never meant to see the light of day, because much like the spectators who sat in the arena seats in Rome to watch the combatants, social media has become the Roman arena.
Caesar of the 21st century has become the millions of readers and viewers who display eagerness and even a driven appetite to consume the newest red meat victim, who is white and a police officer. The Al Sharpton types of the city, and every urban Democrat plantation city has one, stand ready to plant the seeds of disruption, and conflict in order to drive up contributions to their race pandering business machine.
Without conflict the racial pandering business would be put out of business and the morally bankrupt racial provocateurs would no longer have a platform to spew their incendiary messages.
There is a very important lesson that America seems to need to learn every few months, and that is, not every encounter by a white police officer and a black person is wrapped in racism. Sometimes a police officer is doing his or her job and conflict of the moment drives the officer to forget their training and become emotionally unbalanced in that moment.
Whether Officer Casebolt, who resigned from the police force, was emotionally unbalanced due to his two previous runs which were reported to be suicide calls and which affected his behavior, may come out later. But the reality of the race agitation by the Nation of Islam, the new Black Panther Party and others, has no place in McKinney, Texas or in any other town in America.
