McKinney, Texas (CNN)Benet Embry just wanted a respite from the heat when he went to his neighborhood pool Friday. Talking to CNN Monday about the national story that rolled out of that simple, mundane summer activity still has him pretty well dismayed.



The 43-year-old African-American has lived in Craig Ranch, a planned community, for eight years. It's a nice place. Racially diverse. People get along there.


Thinking back on the pool party, he might have known it would be crowded. The invite to the party had earlier caught fire on Twitter and social media. Craig Ranch's strict homeowners' association rules prohibit bringing more than two guests to the pool.

Did that one cop over do it by pulling his weapon??? At first I thought so
but after watching the vid a few times I can see why he did.

The people with a mind say one thing: do what the LEO says and nobody will get in trouble.


The cop will be pilloried without question.

This is what's going to happen in the future. When a problem is in a black neighborhood, a black cop is going to be sent in. If it's a white neighborhood, the race of the cop won't play into it.

I can too. The reason he pulled the gun was because of those guys running up behind him. We couldn't hear what they were saying, but it looked like they were taunting him. I think what he did was just an automatic reaction, probably what they are trained to do.

And that girl really made me mad. She looks and talks like she's a victim, but the cop told her to leave several times and she wouldn't. She was probably taunting him too.

These kids have no respect anymore. Thanks Obama and Sharpton. You've created a monster. We're going to have a lot of trouble this summer, and the cops will be the bad guys. I really wished the police would start wearing cameras to get their side out there.

That's it right there. When I was a kid, I was taught to have respect for Law Enforcement and never had any problems because of this respect. Now kids are being shown that it is cool to be disrespectful to Law Enforcement and this is coming right from the top, starting with obama's jackass statement about the Cambridge Police "acting stupidly".

It isn't just the police. Teachers are having a lot of trouble with these kids in the classroom. Respect starts at an early age, usually with the parents. If they don't get it at home, the next best place is school.

And Blacks will complain and riot about that, too.

The Facts Behind The McKinney Pool Fiasco – Part II
http://theconservativetreehouse.com/2015/06/09/the-facts-behind-the-mckinney-pool-fiasco-part-ii/


The Origin – The woman who organized the event in McKinney, Texas is named Tatiana Rhodes (or Tatyana Rhodes). DOB 04/02/1995, she is 20-years-old. Most of her social media accounts have now been scrubbed as the publicity expanded and the sunlight upon her endeavors increased.

Tatiana had been promoting a party via twitter under the hashtag name “Dime Piece Cookout” for approximately a month. She planned the event at a sub-division called “Craig Ranch” in McKinney Texas.

Tatiana (pictured below left) lives in the sub-division with her mother Lashana Burkes (aka “Lashana Burks” pictured right). Both appear to be natives of Chicago...

..The Craig Ranch subdivision has a neighborhood park and a gated pool and clubhouse for residents. The pool and clubhouse is gated and a scan card is needed to gain access. (You an explore via google earth here)

The subdivision has a Homeowners Association (HOA) which regulates and controls the activities in/around the HOA swimming pool and clubhouse and has strict rules for use thereof...

...Neither Tatiana Rhodes nor her mother, LaShana Burks, sought permission to use the pool or clubhouse area as part of the event. However, Tatiana hired a DJ and promoted the event to include a pool party:

Note: There are numerous social media links reflecting that Tatiana organizes these “parties”, and charges for attendance, as a profit generating business. Her enterprise name is promoted under the auspices of “Twinzzpromotions” and uses the email address twinnzzpromotions@gmail.com:

....However, the specific event last Friday was advertised as “free attendance” where Tatiana was passing out flyers and selling tickets for another event she was setting up for June 19.

Tatiana appears to reference herself as a “promoter” for the various parties she organizes as part of twinzzpromotions:

Her business profile says:

“want to throw a party but don’t know where to start – we do it all. Email us for models, promoters, party planners and more”.

The party on Friday was to promote “Make It Clap 2″, an event scheduled for June 19th (8pm to 1am) $5 advance Tix, $8 at event.

Tickets for MakeItClappPt.2 were being sold at the Craig Ranch party. Here’s the flyer for the June 19th event that was being promoted and handed out on Friday – link here:...


....The DJ (Andrew Cosby) also tweeted out before and during the Craig Ranch event that it was a pool party. DJReign aka Andrew Cosby is also now scrubbing media and hiding his profiles....

...Pictured above, Tatiana and her mother Lashana Burks setting up for the party, while tweeting out #dpcookout so far so good.

In addition to friends of Tatiana Rhodes, more than 100 additional people, mostly teens, showed up as a result of the advertising promoted by Tatiana on social media. They were dropped off by the car-load as the afternoon party began.

According to both Tatyana and her mother Lashana they were unable to control the growing crowd – who came to their event at the park looking for and expecting a “pool party”.

That’s when things got out of control as the 100+ teens (and many young adults) turned into a mob of partygoers and began jumping the fence to the gated pool area. Residents within the neighborhood found themselves confronting a mob of teens growing ever increasingly hostile and agitated.

A local resident shares this version of events:

This version is also supported by other residents who called the police for help and were on the scene trying to get the teen mob under control.

Which led to numerous phone calls to the police as the teen mob became ever more confrontational with a security officer and local residents. The mob refused to leave the area. The police arrived.

With hundreds of teens ransacking the area, the first officer on scene immediately called for back-up. Nine additional officers arrived to try and restore order.

The video below is what has driven the media frenzy, however the video does not begin until after the initial fight with Tatiana and the adult resident took place....


....The Local Black Grievance Community yesterday held a press conference and begins to organize Black Lives Matter Protesters to travel into McKinney Texas to begin their protests:

He was also quick to holster the weapon. His lawyer has stated that he had a couple suicide calls prior to that incident and was under a lot of stress.

Some say he should of simply waited for back up.
