The Daily Show Finds Progress In McKinney Texas Pool Party Incident

Daily Show host Jon Stewart and his "Senior Texas Aquatics Correspondent" Jessica Williams on the pool party madness in McKinney, Texas this weekend.

The Daily Show's Jon Stewart opened his show this Monday with a segment on the out of control cop in McKinney Texas, who brutalized a group of teens at a pool party. After getting his digs on on the cop and his ridiculous barrel roll, and wondering how things managed to get so out of control, Stewart brought in his "Senior Texas Aquatics Correspondent" Jessica Williams for some insight.

After showing off her new swimwear for Stewart, Jon asked her whether these sorts of incidents are happening more often, or if we're just hearing about them more due to everyone having cameras now.

WILLIAMS: I don't know, but either way, this incident is progress.

STEWART: I'm sorry. A cop pulled a gun out and dragged a 14 year old girl to the ground by her hair.

WILLIAMS: Yeah. I know. White people always want to touch our hair. It's nothing new. Jon, it's progress because a cop pulled a gun on a group of black kids and nobody is dead.
