The Nation of Islam and The New Black Panthers have arrived in McKinney, Texas to participate in protest against the local police.
The issue started from an incident at a local pool. There are video reports that a white police officer was seen using excessive force in pushing an African- American teenage girl to the ground.
The officer in question is on administrative leave now and is said to be in hiding after he and his family have had threats for their safety. Witnesses have reported large and aggressive groups of the Panthers and Nation of Islam.
The groups are trying to force the closure of roads to disrupt the city’s normal activity and have targeted the police station. According to a witness the radical groups are walking through the neighborhoods surrounding the pool now. The groups are looking to cause trouble with the police. Louis Farrakhan, the leader of the Nation of Islam has called out for violence in America to tear this country apart.
