chris rock - how not to get your ass kicked by the police! - youtube


Regarding this news story.  Much more context in the twitter hashtag #McKinneyTX.

Here is a more objective story of what might have happened.

... and an interview with the camerman, who was white.

i wonder why only the black kids ran and mouthed off at the cops?  This may inform that question...
source: The Atlantic: McKinney, Texas, and the Racial History of American Swimming Pools

All three of the city’s public pools lie to the east of Highway 75. Craig Ranch, where the pool party took place, lies well to its west. BuzzFeed reports that the fight broke out when an adult woman told the teens to go back to “Section 8 housing.”

Not unexpectedly Brietbart tells a different story.  and so the protests and spins of the fight club beings. 

Me, i think some human empathy would go a long way to heal the situation ... and, of course ... listen to Chris Rock.   We cannot assume that the police can always difuse a bad situation ... so it is best to help them and cooperate without question.  that's my advise to teen agers ... Chris Rock says it better .... trust me, i know from personal experience,  his advise rings true.

Chris Rock was funny this time. (;-)

This article and the small cut of the video (watch the time stamp pictured) presents what the story could have been all about ...

He thanks the videographer for returning the flashlight, then listens for a few seconds as the kids around him try to explain who was and was not involved in a prior incident. “Okay, guys, I appreciate that,” the as-yet-unidentified officer says. He responds to their concerns—that the police had detained the wrong people—by saying, “Okay, that’s what I’m saying. They’re free to go.” While not casual, the officer is composed. His tone is friendly and professional as he engages with the kids.

... i think this is the kind of story that i was hankering to hear.  Still and all Cris Rock said it first.

anyway it is difficult to figure out what happened, with some measure of objectivity. M$M broadcast media is so very edited ... the internet helps because you can see from different perspectives ... but it is still difficult ... and much time would need to be spent.  but it is an exercise i do from time to time still in search of my ring of truth.  i think i will tag such items where i do that with [tag events year] where "year" is the specific year the event transpired.  we did a bit of that some years ago if memory servers you.

Might have seen this on facebook this AM .  Will it help? (**) - I still think Chris Rock's advice is better.



maybe, who knows .    Maybe people need training of how to respond in a chaotic situation ... how to direct their attention and the camera's.  I once started filming a customer service agent at the airport and them made me stop.  Apparently you don't have the right to film on private property without approval.  But if a cop walks into the scene, can you film the public servant?
