IT WAS LIKE I WAS INVISIBLE says the white teen who filmed the McKinney Pool Party



The white kid that filmed the McKinney Texas Pool Party reportedly said the cops completely ignored him like he was "invisible."

Comment I read:

BuzzFeed also reports that the video which led to the officer’s suspension was shot and uploaded by Brandon Brooks, a white teenager at the pool party who said the officers were only detaining teens who were not white:


“Everyone who was getting put on the ground was black, Mexican, Arabic,” he said. “[The cop] didn’t even look at me. It was kind of like I was invisible.”



Please note that the first few articles I read made it sound like a police officer only handled some black teens at a pool party  roughly.

Imagine my surprise when I see a bikini clad girl yanked to the ground, yanked up while screaming for her mother, yanked down again then watch this runt of a cop pull his gun out on the boys (one of mexican or white?)  that run up to help the screaming girl. 

Can you imagine taking a cell phone camera back in time to 1915 or 1950?

Can you imagine how much abuse these white police officers have been getting  away with - if this is what they are doing now in 2015?
