Tracey Carver is the blond white woman seen in a viral video trying to break up a fight at the McKinney pool party that ended up in a near riot.
The cop who was seen on video subduing the 15 year old black girl has already quit his job and fled town. His life is ruined. Witnesses who took the side of the police have experienced harassment and intimidation since the incident happened.
Carver, who has been accused of racism, has also seen vile and virulent harassment and death threats – – and has been forced to flee town. She has hired celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred (!) to help her regain her reputation.
Welcome to ObamaMerica – where an end of the school-year pool party can turn into a horrific, life-changing nightmare for normal, middle class people who thought they were just in for a fun afternoon with their kids..
In a statement forwarded to The Dallas Morning News, Carver said that she was trying to defuse a fight between her friend and a young woman who pulled the friend’s hair. The McKinney woman noted she had to relocate to California because of threats against her and her family.
Tatyana Rhodes, a black 19-year-old woman, had told a photojournalist that another woman, who is white, told her to return to her public housing before slapping her in the face. Rhodes said she, her mother and sister live in the Craig Ranch subdivision and hosted the party there.
Correction: Rhodes hosted a competing party in the park next to the pool that she had advertised on social media as a pool party even though she wasn’t authorized to have a pool party – especially one with up to 200 non-residents at the pool (or even in the park.)
Rhodes claimed on Youtube that the white woman “was saying things such as, ‘black F-er,’ and ‘That’s why you live in Section 8 homes.’”
Her white friend Grace Stone has been active on Twitter and MSNBC corroborating this side of the story. (Neither of the two seem particularly bright, or compelling or believable.) Her father, who I’ve seen in a couple of interviews backing up his daughter, doesn’t explain why his 14 year old daughter was allowed to be at an unauthorized, out of control party at a subdivision she doesn’t live in.
It’s bad enough that these teens thought that it was okay to break rules and disturb the peace. What’s up with their adult enablers?
You want to hear what really happened at the McKinney pool party? Here’s Tracy Carver and her counsel, Gloria Allred (!) and a black friend who’s considered part of her family, to explain.
