McKINNEY, Texas – A local pastor told Breitbart Texas he understood why a McKinney police officer pulled his gun on the two young men who charged towards him as he was attempting to detain a teenage girl. The comment from the pastor, who did not give his name, came during a conversation just prior to Monday night’s march by activists through the McKinney community of Craig Ranch.

“I understand why he pulled his gun,” the pastor told this writer. “A large number of people were charging up to him and he had reason to be afraid.”

This Pastor sounds like an intelligent, calm person just accessing the situation from all angles, the kind I would want for my pastor and friend.

I understand too! He was approached from behind, In my opinion, he didn't do anything wrong! Those humans are out of control!

The camera angle was skewed but the one guy had his hands right at the same level as the Officer's weapon... there is no excuse for anyone interfering with an arrest..even a Black teenager during Obama's Race War

What I saw in the video was a police officer being attacked. In light of the disrespect we have seen in the last year I would have drawn my weapon as well.

People should also go back in context. He had witnessed two suicides earlier. He probably shouldn't have gone on the call to begin with.

If you watch the video.....the guy in the khaki shorts comes up behind the the officer turns and notices him. It looks like the teen was pulling up his pants....but his hand was behind him. The officer probably thought he was pulling something out from the back of his least that is what it looks like to me.

They were going for his gun.

As soon as I saw the video, my first thought was that they were going to flank him and I can understand why he pulled his gun. Yes, they may have been teenagers, but we all know teenagers will kill you now a days.

I didn't think he should have resigned or even been reprimanded. We are going to keep on with this dumb sh*t against cops and they will stop being cops; for fear of law suits or jail time.

I was never one for the cops, but I'm not against the cops either. I'm mid 50's and my generation when told to do something by the police, did what they said. At least I did, and I never had any trouble with the them. In fact in most cases by being polite and not presenting the officer with "attitude" I was given warnings when I could have been given fines.

But it is a different time out there now. We need cops because if just left to our own devices we will have some in the group who will screw up. That is just the way people are. Some will do worse than "screw up." They will be the rapists, robbers, killers. What are we going to do with them if there are no cops.
