On "The Five" today, Greg Gutfeld reacted to the national attention that a confrontation between a Texas police officer and a group of teens at a pool party has received.

A video emerged earlier this week showing Cpl. Eric Casebolt pin a bikini-clad girl to the ground, then draw his gun on other teens.

Casebolt resigned yesterday from the police force and his attorney said today that he has received death threats and is currently in hiding.

Gutfeld said that it's "nuts" that a local conflict has become such a national phenomenon.

"And with national phenomenons come the media convulsion, the descending of otherwise jobless activists, the placement of said incident into a 'larger trend,' all without pause for sober assessment," Gutfeld asserted.

He explained that if there wasn't cell phone video of the incident, the story would not be receiving national attention.

"But now it's PC ping pong," Gutfeld said. "We rush to defend or condemn before processing what's seen and race always takes first place."
