MCKINNEY, TX (KDAF) – “Fire Eric Casebolt” and “Black Lives Matter.” The signs said it all in McKinney Monday night where protesters gathered, demanding that the officer at the center of the controversial pool party video be fired.

They call it a clear a case of racial misconduct.

Cpl. Eric Casebolt was placed on administrative leave after the profanity-laced video surfaced on YouTube.

But “Back the Blue” supporters who showed up Monday say Officer Casebolt was just doing his job. They held signs that read, “Teach Your Kids Respect.”
