Did Police Go Way Too Far on This Call to a Community Pool?
Police in Texas responded to a community pool after reports that kids were in the pool and they didn't have permission to be there. When police arrived they seemed to escalate the situation and at one point pulled a gun and pointed it at two boys who approached the scene as the officer was struggling with a female.
Did they go too far?
First responding officers encountered a large crowd that refused to comply with police commands. Nine additional units responded to the scene. Officers were eventually able to gain control of the situation.
McKinney Police later learned of a video that was taken at the scene by an unknown party. This video has raised concerns that are being investigated by the McKinney Police Department. At this time, one of the responding officers has been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of this investigation.
