The McKinney, Texas officer placed on leave after pulling his gun on unarmed teenagers has reportedly been identified as Corporal Eric Casebolt. Casebolt has apparently deleted his Twitter and Linkedin accounts, but what appears to be his Youtube profile—and, with it, a video playlist titled “Police training”—remains.
Heavy.com pulled photos from Casebolt’s Linkedin before he deleted it that seem to verify his identity as the officer in the video. The same handle used for the Youtube profile (“decase73”) was, per the Google cache, in use until recently by someone also identifying himself as Eric Casebolt on Twitter.
The McKinney Police Department did not immediately return a call for comment.
Decase73’s Youtube playlist features a dozen videos with titles like “Man Attacks Baltimore Police Officer,” “Man Sucker-Punches Cop Gets Kicked in the Face,” and “Chief tells the TRUTH that Black People don’t want to hear.” All would appear to reflect a mindset that police officers are entitled to use any and all force necessary to subjugate those they ostensibly protect and serve.
Yesterday, the video of Casebolt manhandling a teenage girl and pointing his gun at two boys was added to the playlist.
