The video of the McKinney pool party raid has gone viral and got the attention of the world. It has also reignited the movement against police brutality seen in Ferguson, New York, Cleveland and Baltimore. Many are calling for the firing of Corporal Eric Casebolt, the officer seen in the video. His actions have been described by some as unbecoming a peace officer, and showed an officer out of contol.  Outraged is the only way to describe the way many feel about the manner in which he pulled his weapon on a group of teenagers and man-handled 13 year old Jahda Bakari . This young lady along with her father Jahi Bakari and her god-sister Ladariene McKever, will be our guests.
