Grand Jury Clears Child-Abusing Cop Eric Casebolt

24 June 2016

A grand jury in Texas has decided not to indict former cop Eric Casebolt. He had stormed a pool party, pulled his gun, and attacked a teenage girl. Ben Mankiewicz (What The Flick?), Ana Kasparian, and Francis Maxwell (TYT Sports), hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“A grand jury decided Thursday not to indict a former Texas police officer who was seen on video throwing a bikini-clad teenage girl to the ground and pointing his gun at others at a pool party last summer.

The decision not to charge Eric Casebolt ends the investigation into his handling of the pool party melee, CBS Dallas/Fort Worth station KTVT reported.

Casebolt, who is white, was widely criticized for his treatment of the young, black teenager, with teens and parents saying he was overzealous and too aggressive. The incident was captured on cellphone video.

He pushed the girl to the ground following a party last June at a community pool in suburban Dallas that drew a crowd of teenagers. …

However, the Collin County grand jury determined there wasn’t enough evidence to bring criminal charges against him. An attorney for Casebolt did not return a call for comment.

Casebolt resigned days after the incident after being placed on administrative leave by the police chief.”
