Who could have guessed that the "Sean" who called the police on African American teens at the McKinney, Texas pool party, because he didn't like their music - and whom Megyn Kelly teamed up with to paint the kids as thugs - would likely be the real thug? UPDATED.
As I described in my previous post, Megyn Kelly offered very little challenge to Sean as he told her viewers that a white police officer behaved appropriately when he pulled a gun on a group of African American teenagers at a pool party and threw a 14 year-old girl into the dirt. Sean never said so but it was clear he had been booked to promote a Blacks Behaving Badly scenario and Kelly was an active helpmate.
Apparently, she and her Fox News producers were so excited to find someone to promote their agenda, they didn't bother to check who their star witness was. Or maybe they didn't care.
In her interview with Sean Toon, Kelly made it seem as though Toon didn't want to use his last name because he was afraid of reprisals from (black) thugs. But maybe he didn't want it known who and what he is. Of course, he could have been found not guilty of the charges. But we never got to find out because Kelly never asked.
Watch Kelly's lapdog interview from the June 8 The Kelly File, below.
UPDATE: It turns out Toon's record is worse than I thought. From The Guardian:
In November 1999, aged 18, Toon and three high school friends were arrested and expelled from school after vandalising the agricultural centre of a rival high school district and attacking animals housed there, many of which were owned and cared for by school children.
“Cows and pigs were cut and bruised, apparently beaten with wooden boards. And baby turkeys were slain, their limbs torn apart,” the Dallas Morning News reported at the time. Dale Gardner, a teacher in the school district’s agriscience and technology program, told the newspaper: “It was brutal. There’s no way to describe it. I’ve never seen anything like it.”
...Toon pleaded guilty to felony criminal mischief and was sentenced in August 2000 to 285 days in jail and fined $300.
In September 2000, Toon was charged in nearby Denton County with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, according to court records. After pleading guilty to an unspecified lesser charge, Toon was sentenced to 75 days in jail.

Yeah, Matt… Your hero is a convicted animal torturer, as well as a scumbag who committed aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and got 75 days in holding because he cut a deal. What was the point you thought you had originally? That no one does their homework but you?
Seriously, I’ll start on this in a little bit.
You know what’s funny about all this stuff going on though? People don’t want to be judged by the color of their skin yet you have no issues judging others. Racism will always live on if ppl keep doing that. I’m starting to think ppl want racism to live on so they always have that scapegoat. At least the ignorant ones at least.
The lightest you can get for aggravated assault is one year, and that’s if considered an act of self-defense where you kept going past a certain line, and you’re in a state that believes in that as minimal sentencing.
This happened in Texas. Do I need to say more about how likely it is Toon made a deal? They were even nice enough to let him serve his 75 days in county jail, and not prison.
But I do hope he comes back- It’s always good seeing these “not racist” trolls try telling a video that it’s wrong.
Step 2 is kicking in now. Of course our new pet goat lives in McKinney, has INTIMATE PERSONAL KNOWLEDGE of the people involved and was ACTUALLY THERE, like ON THE SCENE when the whole business WENT DOWN. Obviously.
Yea, a real hero.
I also just saw some reports (around 4:30pm) that the officer in question, Eric Casebolt, resigned from the McKinney Police Dept. this afternoon.
Agrravated assault is a"mistake," and we’re not allowed to talk about because “the charages were dropped” and “it was 15 years ago.”
That’s funny, because it seems like with people like you, I see a pattern: If someone you agree with breaks the law, it’s to be seen as a “mistake,” and people aren’t even allowed the time span of a normal coping process. But if you don’t agree with the person, it could be something as innocent as a gaffe statement, or shenanigans when they were eight decades ago, and it has to still be held against them like a felony committed earlier that day.
What Sean Toon did wasn’t a “mistake,” and I’d like to see where they let him go because “they arrested everyone,” because let’s play a little game called in the real world: Let’s say there’s a bar fight, and someone is stabbed in it, the charges go to whoever the evidence points to. It’s as simple as that, and unless something down the road pointed to him taking the fall for someone else, like the new, terrible episodes of CSI… The only way he was getting the charges dropped or reduced is a deal.
Toon got the charges because the evidence pointed to him, and he was put on a $15,000 surety for a reason. If you had read the actual report, instead of whatever far-right cesspit you’re quoting, you’d know that, and you’d know the five Ws in some level of detail.
And in terms of how this reflects on Toon’s character, this is a special level of fail, because he went on national TV and said that how the cops treated those kids was perfectly acceptable to him, then went on his social media and said that his own case of similar police incompetence warranted pity for himself. In it’s best light, it’s him telling us that this kind of arrest procedure is acceptable to him if he’s not the one being arrested. In almost any other light, it’s him saying that he approves because the black girl was shown excessive force for her role in the fight, while social media is petitioning for equal punishment on the white ADULT WOMAN who started it.
By the way, I’ll give you three guesses how much your comment said about you, and you probably still don’t realize it.
After some discussion of the McKinney incident, Hasselbeck said, “I just want to bring this to the front though in fairness to our viewers who many, um, have brought to the attention of the public that you yourself, uh, were reported to the cops by a neighbor that you were grabbing your girlfriend at the time as she walked away fro you, that you have a history of anger and that when your girlfriend tried to call the police, you took her phone to stop her. And they’re saying who are you to step in and say this officer shouldn’t be dealing with a female this way when you yourself have had a history? What do you say to those critics?” He said that was she read (from the Dallas Morning News) was incorrect and he moved the discussion back to the incident.
In the 2nd hour of F&F, the 3 stooges brought up the McKinney incident again and played part of Kelly’s interview with Sean – without telling the viewers anything about HIS criminal past (despite having plenty of time to have read about it after Toon was outed online). However, as they continued the discussion, they once again mentioned Alexander’s “checkered past” (as Kilmeade called it) in what can only be called an attempt to discredit him as they went on to describe even more things from Alexander’s “checkered past” (such as a high speed police chase). Kilmeade went to say the it is the police officer who has a good track record.
So it’s a FOX “news” tale of 2 witnesses – one who defended police behavior and one who critiqued it. The one who defended the police doesn’t have his past bad behavior mentioned on air at all while the other one’s past is expressly made known to their viewers, you know, out of “fairness to our viewers”. Pffft.
Fair and balanced? You betcha!
A black youth who has investigated the incident was brought into the “Fox AndFriends” circus tent and since he was a critic of the cop her task was to pimp the standard cops are heroes GOP TV meme. He did surprisingly well arguing with her – I’m sure Fox News figured he’d be an inexperienced mark easy to rattle and embarrass – so it wasn’t too long before Hasselbeck bared the fangs and accused him of mistreating his girlfriend.
In defending the cop, I found it interesting Hasselbeck kept overlooking the fact he pulled a gun on a teen pool party. Seriously? Maybe the clown should have called in SWAT for backup?
