Sean Toon, White McKinney Resident Who Has Been Defending Casebolt’s Action, Was Convicted Of Torturing Animals
Sean Toon is the man who called 911, complaining about black kids at a pool party in McKinney, Texas, went on to give several interviews with different news stations, telling his side of the story, but he didn’t tell the truth, while claiming the media was misrepresenting the incident.
According to teens at the pool party, he was one of the adults present at the incident who initially made racist comments to black teenagers, sparking a violent fight.
Grace Stone, a 14-year-old white McKinney resident, in defense of her black friends said, “I’m 100% sure that he said, ‘You should go back to the Section 8 (public) housing where you’re from because you don’t belong in our neighborhood.”
In November 1999, then aged 18, Toon and three high school friends were arrested and expelled from school after vandalizing the agricultural center of an another high school and attacking animals, which were owned and cared for by school children.
“Cows and pigs were cut and bruised, apparently beaten with wooden boards. And baby turkeys were slain, their limbs torn apart,” the Dallas Morning News reported at the time. Dale Gardner, a teacher in the school district’s agricultural and technology program, told the newspaper: “It was brutal. There’s no way to describe it. I’ve never seen anything like it.”
Court records indicate that Toon pleaded guilty to felony criminal mischief and was sentenced in August 2000 to 285 days in jail and fined $300, his three friends were also punished for the incident. In September 2000, Toon was again charged, this time in nearby Denton County, for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon according to court records. After pleading guilty to an unspecified lesser charge, he was sentenced to 75 days in jail.
