The Sabres’ Evander Kane is calling for an end to abuse and racial profiling by police officers after seeing video of an incident in McKinney, Texas.
The McKinney Police Department has placed Cpl. Eric Casebolt on administrative leave after a teen posted video of the officer throwing a 14-year-old girl to the ground. He pulled his gun on other teens who came near in an attempt to aid the girl.
The white student who filmed the incident said police targeted only non-white teens.
Kane’s first tweet about the incident features a retweet of his younger sister Kyla. She also called on others to speak up.
Here is the full video of the police incident. Note: It contains violence and profanities.
