Jon Stewart Blasts 'A**hole' Texas Officer For Pool Party Gone Bad

The approach of summer means it's time for pool parties, but as Jon Stewart noted on Monday night's "Daily Show," not every pool party means sun and fun.

During a pool party in McKinney, Texas, a cop pulled a gun, then handcuffed and arrested a group of teenagers. The incident resulted in the cop being placed on leave while authorities investigate his actions.

At one point, Cpl. Eric Casebolt tells a girl who is sitting on the ground to "get your ass on the ground."

"He's telling her to get her ass on the ground, and I believe it is literally on the ground," Stewart said. "Not only is he being an asshole, he's redundant."

For some perspective, Stewart turned to "Senior Texas Aquatics Correspondent" Jessica Williams, who noted that the whole incident really represents progress.

"A cop pulled a gun on a group of black kids and nobody is dead," Williams said.

Check out Stewart's take on the pool party incident in the clip above... and see his conversation with Williams below.
