Man Who Called McKinney Cop Was Convicted For Animal Torture

The wolf who cried wolf. You’ve heard about the Texas cop who attacked a young girl at a recent pool party,

But you probably don’t know the man who called the police in the first place, all because a group of black teenagers was trying to access a community pool

According to Texas court orders, Sean Toon was charged in 2000 for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, eventually serving 3 and a half months in jail.

At the age of 18, Toon and three of his high school friends were arrested and expelled for vandalizing the agricultural center of a rival school, and torturing the animals held there that were cared for by the students. A teacher at the school reported that:

“Cows and pigs were cut and bruised, apparently beaten with wooden boards. And baby turkeys were slain, their limbs torn apart. It was brutal. There’s no way to describe it. I’ve never seen anything like it.”

Following which the animals and buildings were covered in green and gold paint, the colors of Toon’s high school.

There are immature high school pranksters, and then there are those who’ve reached voting age without gaining the requisite morality that separates one from the full-on sociopathic.

Compare Toon’s  behavior to the conduct of the partygoers, which he described as “out of control.”

It was chaos when [the cop] arrived there and he kind of had to match that situation with a good amount of aggression to kind of calm the crowd down,

Toon said, defending Eric Casebolt’s manhandling of a 15-year old girl, and his threat to shoot two other teens who came to the former’s rescue.

We’re not sure that Toon is the best judge of what “a good amount of aggression” looks like.
