Viral Mom's Viral Video Message: Respect the Police
Respect the police: That’s a message from one mom in a video that’s gone viral on Facebook.
In the video that’s been viewed more than 2 million times, Kisa Jackson said that parents need to take ownership of their children’s actions. She added that kids must follow protocol and respect officers.
Jackson was responding to the recent video which shows then-police officer Eric Casebolt pin a teen girl to the ground and then draw his weapon at a pool party in Texas. Casebolt has since resigned.
“Do I think that the incident was excessive? Yes. But do I think it was necessary? Yes. Parents need to take ownership [of] what their children are doing and hold them accountable for their actions, as well as the parents should be held accountable,” Jackson said in the video.
Jackson was on “Fox and Friends” this morning, where she said she’s upset that the teens in the video didn’t know how to conduct themselves with a person of authority.
“These kids were out of control,” she said. “I never disputed that the officer was also, but he wasn’t my concern. You know, these kids are our future.”
Jackson told Steve Doocy that she has received threats since posting the video. He asked: Are you sorry you posted it?
“No, I’m not sorry, I don’t take it back,” she said, adding that her sons support her and have told her not to take the video down.
