Release the 911 calls that prompted Corporal Casebolt’s response at the Craig Ranch Community Pool!

Release the 911 calls that prompted the police response for a supposed “disturbance involving multiple juveniles at the location, who do not live in the area or have permission to be there, refusing to leave."

Why is this important?

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 therefor 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.
