In McKinney, Texas, a suburb of Dallas, a police officer has been placed on leave after a video was posted online apparently showing him pushing a 14-year-old girl in a swimsuit to the ground and pointing his gun at other teenagers.

David Thomas, a professor at Florida Gulf Coast University and senior research fellow at the Police Foundation, which works with law enforcement agencies across the country, discusses this case with Here & Now’s Robin Young.
