It seems for some reports the Rose siblings made an egregious mistake. They actually thought they could gather a group of young black friends (and some white friends) for a fun time in America. Moreover, the Roses appear to have planned their fun time at a private residence and not a pubic facility.
Trouble ensued and local
Storm Troopers cops were called the location. Trouble ensued?
Let's start with the police report. The always fair and non embellished document police are required to file after an incident.
Pool Party Incident:
On June 5, 2015 at approximately 7:15 p.m., officers from the McKinney Police Department responded to a disturbance at the Craig Ranch North Community Pool. The initial call came in as a disturbance involving multiple juveniles at the location, who do not live in the area or have permission to be there, refusing to leave. McKinney Police received several additional calls related to this incident advising that juveniles were now actively fighting.
Here is how the incident looked again. The video was shot by a 15 year old white kid. Remember the young teen in the colorful bikini is 14 years of age. Who is the accompanying white guy...neighborhood watch guy, black folks patrol?
The 15 year video guy speaks and he speaks not from a bigoted paradigm or the psyche of American conservatism.
Ms. Rose speaks.
Before we add deep perspective t the incident, let's take a look and read on the dark side: American Conservos who seek every opportunity to speak in support of the cop no matter the level of abuse. Watch for the word "authority." Imagine a few cases of resistant acquiescence to authority. Imagine the Native American First Nation people (head lowered) in total subservience to (authority) manifest destiny, blood thirst American Union cavalry, or greedy land developers Imagine the Warsaw Ghetto Jews quietly shepherding their brethren into rail cars without a fight.

The situation in #McKinney would not have escalated to what it did, if everyone would have done what they were told to do by authorities.
Hummm. A thug culture of kids without Fathers doesn't understand how to act towards authority. I'm shocked #McKinney— Billy O'Connor (@BillyOConnor18) June 7, 2015
#McKinney IF IT IS NOT YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD, YOU CAN NOT USE THE POOL..... THIS IS NOT A SECTION 8 PUBLIC POOL. that simple.
Some visited with the mind altering Fox NewsOnce again a clip taken out of context to suit the media narrative and to cause more moral outrage #McKinney
Now for a set of details spread among the articles. If you are seeking that typical quick read and do not have interest f reach of the following visit the piece for The Atlantic.
First, visit with CNN and Ashleigh Banfield. The very Banfield who spoke in quasi defense of a cop in another racially charged shooting only to be rebutted by fellow CNN Host Don Lemon. I suspect Banfield's production team found value in approaching the incident from the perspective of.....
Next Keith Boykin wrote a demand read piece for BET. If you prefer articles with little to no frank speak, you should avoid this Commentary: It's Time for White People to Check Themselves After McKinney Incident.
The Grio offers the genesis of the incident.

The piece I highly recommend. Excerpts from The Atlantic.
Maybe the CNN reporters will comb through the incident overnight and offer much "no racial component in the incident, why the NAACP." evidence. CNN really should leave such reporting to Fox News and the plethora of conservative AM Radio Talk Show Host. The fair and balanced cable network would have preview a a few more video and the comments from young white kid who took the original video before going after the NAACP.
Of course, I am discounting the penchant for some in the nation to exercise "Privilege." CNN embodies the essence of privilege in this case.
