There is a facebook post floating around from someone who lives in the neighborhood:
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Facebook friends and family – PLEASE HELP! That (now viral) video of the officer in McKinney subduing a girl in a bathing suit was in OUR neighborhood. The situation was NOT what is being reported…
A DJ setup in a public space next to the private pool in our neighborhood on Friday and played loud explicit (F-bomb) music for multiple hours (it is unclear if he was invited by a resident as no one has claimed responsibility). The teenagers (both black and white) were being brought into our neighborhood by the carload because the DJ was tweeting out invites to a “pool party” for $15 (obviously unauthorized by our neighborhood). The teens began fighting with each other and pushing their way into our private pool. Some were jumping our fence. The security guard was accosted when he tried to stop the beginnings of this mob scene. Some residents who live around the park/pool area tried to come out and settle things down. The teens started yelling racial slurs at our neighbors and started assaulting people and property (throwing bottles at cars and attacking a mother at the pool with 3 young children). The first officer on the scene was by himself. At that time, the party had grown to a large, aggressive crowd. As the officer arrived, many teens started running through our neighborhood. Many of the teens were being very aggressive and yelling at the officers as more arrived.
This was a very dangerous situation for the officers AND the teens/residents not involved. The news media has refused to hear the neighborhood’s side of this story. The video being distributed is only a very small segment of what happened. This information being distributed by the media and others is extremely distorted and in some cases outright lies.
PLEASE HELP US STOP THE BROADCASTING OF THIS IGNORANCE. The media is trying to make it look like our neighborhood is a white’s only, racist area. Anyone who has spent even a few minutes in our area knows this is an outright LIE.
The unfortunate result is that our neighbors are now being threatened. We have also had cars and property in and around the park area vandalized this weekend. Unfortunately, the press and social media are trying to enflame the situation.
I am asking for your help for my family and my neighbor’s safety…PLEASE, PLEASE do not rebroadcast any of these lies.
No idea how accurate this is. The DJ in question has deleted all of the tweets about the event, claims to have simply been hired and paid to play (and not to have been promoting for the event). Has tweets saying things like "I try to be the best person I can be, but some people really test that" and "To many people try to go out of their way to destroy my career. Why? They can't even say. All I'm gonna say is, bring it on. #makeurownpath" as well as a retweet from the "CEO" of DallasRagers that says "I just really dislike being lied to, specially when it comes to business" (I think this came out before the event...but they sound like the sort of people who would throw illegal parties if there was money in it).
So who knows for sure what happened. What is clear is that this party was not supposed to be happening. It was in an HOA community and not open to the general public (and any event would presumably require reserving the pool and probably paying fees to the HOA).
Didn't help that the locals made comments like "Go back to your Section 8 home" in a community that has previously paid fines for blocking the construction of affordable housing...but I certainly wouldn't be happy if a bunch of non-residents (of any skin color) hopped the fence and started throwing a party in my condo building's pool.
