Release data about police interactions with Black youth

As you know, a disturbing YouTube video surfaced of a McKinney, Texas, police officer, Corporal Eric Casebolt, verbally berating and physically assaulting several Black youth. One of the victims Dajerria Becton was brutally forced to the ground with her arm pinned behind her and Corporal Casebolt’s knee in her back. Like the other victims of Corporal Casebolt - she wants justice. She has spoken out and said that firing him isn’t enough.

Unfortunately this may not be an isolated incident. We need to know if this is how McKinney police are treating Black youth when the cameras aren't rolling. Start a petition encouraging the Mayor to release data on police interactions with Black youth for the past decade.

  • Release data about the McKinney Police Department's engagement of Black youth
    The videos from McKinney show Black youth clearly being targeted by police while white youth are left alone. We deserve to know from the City of McKinney if this is a longstanding police policy. This is important because this incident is one in a long line of incidents that continue to demonstrate that Black youth are routinely dehumanized in our society. Implicit bias and perceptions of Black youth directly impact they way that they are engaged. Because these youth were seen to not belong in the area, the officers did even attempt to engage them as residents or even guests but rather as intruders. This is evidenced by the fact that the teenager who filmed the incident was white and therefore was not engaged by the police at all - despite capturing the entire event on camera. We have seen in past, how these interactions can quickly turn deadly. The community can not begin to heal until these issues are exposed and confronted in a honest and transparent fashion.
