While most people have been focused on the footage of Cpl. Eric Casebolt chasing down African-American teens and brutally detaining 15-year-old Dajerria Becton, there’s another video causing controversy that the police and news outlets seem to be ignoring. But social media users are on the hunt and they won’t stop until someone answers for another McKinney pool party incident.
The second videoÂ appears to show a white woman beating on young black girl as her friends try to help her escape. Social media users immediately took action to try to identify the adult in the video and claim that they have found her.
Tracey Carver-AllbrittonÂ was identified by social media users as theÂ woman allegedly at the center of the McKinney pool party controversyÂ but Dallas media outlets have not confirmed. A Change.org petition was also launched demanding that Carver-Allbritton’sÂ employer terminate her for the pool party assault.
Dallas News Crime Blog reports that Carver-Allbritton’s employer has stepped in to review the matter.
The woman who is accused of starting the fight that led to the pool party confrontation had also been placed on administrative leave at her job at a data analysis and technology support company.
â€œCoreLogic does not condone violence, discrimination or harassment and takes conduct that is inconsistent with our values and expectations very seriously,â€ her employer, CoreLogic, said in a statement Tuesday. â€œAs a result of these pending allegations, we have placed the employee in question on administrative leave while further investigations take place.â€
There has been no word on whether McKinney police plan to arrestÂ Carver-Allbritton or even interview her about actions in the video.Â The McKinney chief of police announced yesterday that Casebolt’s actions were “indefensible” and that he had resigned.
Stay tuned for the latest developments in McKinney.
