#TBT (Episode 11) “Is There A Problem Officer???”

It’s THURSDAY! And in the spirit of #ThrowbackThursday I’ve decided to go back into the archives and re-release an older episode that I think might be relevant to today, and also, to show how far along The Spann Report as a podcast, and Mr. Spann as a host has come. This episode is exactly 5 years old today.

In Episode 11 of #TSRP Mr. Spann embraces his inner nerd, talks about the push to make feature film “The Help” into a Hollywood blockbuster and about the state of quality Hip Hop in Detroit. And later in the show Spann addresses the Poverty Bus Tour spearheaded by Tavis Smiley and Dr. Cornel West, the riots over in the UK, and Mr. Spann makes a trip back home to Chicago that was epic for reasons you might not expect.

Larry Wilmore & Jon Stewart Rip McKinney, TX Police, and the Fox News Coverage Of The Story

In a story that gets bigger every day. Larry Wilmore of The Nightly Show, and Jon Stewart of The Daily Show, both of the Comedy Central network, took to the airwaves to talk about the infamous pool party in McKinney Texas.

McKinney TX Police Respond To Pool Party Disturbance, Only Arrest And Detain Black Kids

Apparently, police were called to a disturbance at a pool party. Unfortunately, when the police got on the scene, the only people detained and manhandled were the black kids in the area. The video speaks for itself. Thankfully, the super trooper cop who goes out of his way to drag a teen girl to the ground by her braids, refers to the kids, as a “MOB”, and totally ignores the kids when they try to tell him they just showed up to go to a birthday party, has been put on Administrative leave.

McKinney Police Department Statement

The McKinney Police Department has also held a press conference to address this event.

What happens next was something nobody was expecting. But was the officer wrong for his use of force in this situation? You take a look and decide for yourself.

And here is the raw surveillance video of the incident.
