More details details emerging about Friday’s pool party in a Texas subdivision that’s making national news because of how police dealt with teenagers on the scene, and they’re not helpful to those trying to make all cops look bad.
One Twitter video reported by Breitbart, for instance, shows the kind of mayhem that was taking place when police were called to the McKinney, Texas, development.

Even assuming that it was a comment — that blacks should go back to public housing –that led to the fracas, it gives viewers who saw only the earlier video of a police officer grappling with a young, bikini-clad woman, a somewhat different idea of what was going on.
(The video was posted to Twitter by an outlet called Revolution News. It’s editorial slant should be fairly easy to guess.)
This Facebook posting, by a resident of the subdivision, gives a different idea, too. The resident, identified on Facebook as Benet Embry, also happens to be black.
Oh, I say and I say it again, ya been had! Ya been took! Ya been hoodwinked! Bamboozled! Led astray! Run amok! MediaTakeout.com posts a story showing only 7 minutes of a 30 minute ordeal, makes it racial and all the activist come a running. Look, I LIVE in this community and this ENTIRE incident is NOT racial at all. A few THUGS spoiled a COMMUNITY event by fighting, jumping over fences into a PRIVATE pool, harassing and damaging property. Not EVERYTHING is about RACE. WE have other issuses that NEED our attention other flights of made up make believe causes.
No, it’s not always about race.
And while just about everyone can agree that the officer who pulled his gun was dangerously overreacting — and doing so in a way that could have been tragic — the news that there was already physical violence on the scene is definitely affecting some views.

There’s a whole grievance industry that wants it to be racism too.
It’s going to be a long, hot summer.
