There is nothing inherently funny about the incident in which a McKinney, Texas police officer slammed a teenage girl to the ground and pulled his gun on a group of black kids at a pool party over the weekend. But upon closer inspection, The Nightly Show’s Larry Wilmore was able to identify the hands-down “most hilarious” moment from the cell phone video that got the cop suspended.
Just after he told a group of boys to keep their “asses on the ground,” the officer, identified as Cpl. Eric Casebolt, did this:
“First I was sick to my stomach, guys, but that was kind of the most hilarious thing I’ve ever seen,” Wilmore remarked. “I’ve got a feeling that’s not his first barrel roll.”
