A disturbance at a private pool party ended with a white McKinney, Texas police officer being placed on leave.

Corporal Eric Casebolt was caught on video using excessive force, handcuffing and pulling his gun on unarmed black teens Saturday.

The egregious nature of his actions have Americans—both black and white— calling for his immediate firing. Among those outraged is EEW Magazine’s President, Dianna Hobbs.

“My husband Kenya and I—parents of 2 boys, 2 girls—are so angry. That was DISGUSTING & UNACCEPTABLE,” she said in Facebook post responding to the video.

Hobbs continued, “When I saw that GROWN MAN in uniform, who is supposedly protecting and serving, kneeling on that 14-year-old girl’s back as she cried, all I could see was my daughter who will be 14 next month. He man-handled that baby.”
