Fox News’ Megyn Kelly Goes After McKinney Girl, 15, Who Was Attacked by Cop: She’s ‘No Saint, Either’
On her show Monday, Fox News host Megyn Kelly said that the 15-year-old girl recorded on video being attacked by McKinney police officer Eric Casebolt deserves some blame as well.
“The girl was no saint, either,” Kelly said, referring to Dajerria Becton who was taken down by Casebolt in the now infamous video. “He had told her to leave, and she continued to linger. When a cop tells you to leave, get out.”
Kelly failed to mention that Becton was tackled as she was leaving.
Speaking to KDFW, Becton explained, “He told me to keep walking, and we were walking and I guess he thought we were saying rude stuff to him.”
Kelly then asked radio host Richard Fowler if it was fair to turn the incident “into a race thing.”
“Race aside, Megyn, I think to watch a woman being handled like that by a guy who’s two times her size made me totally sick to my stomach,” Fowler replied.
