Civil Rights Group Responds to the Resignation of McKinney Police Officer Eric Casebolt

WASHINGTON - McKinney Police Officer Eric Casebolt resigned following widespread public outrage at a video showing him brutally attacking and unjustly arresting Dajerria Becton and other Black teens at a pool party.

Rashad Robinson, Executive Director of ColorOfChange.org released the following statement:

“Officer Casebolt’s resignation is an important step in the right direction, but not enough to hold him fully accountable or shift the discriminatory and violent culture of policing that has allowed him to brutalize Black people for years.
