Boy showing up at black family door cracking the whip

A boy cracking a whip on the porch of a black family in Texas sparked a series of events that landed a man in prison.

The incident took place in Forney, Texas last week and resulted in Bryan Thomas Brunson – the boy’s father with the whip – accidentally firing a gun in broad daylight. The events were recorded and have since been viewed millions of times on platforms like Twitter, YouTube, TikTok and Reddit.

The original video was captured using the family’s Ring doorbell camera and showed the boy, Brunson’s son, marching to a front door and banging multiple times. He uses a long whip to “crack” the front door twice more.

Then he stops and is visibly surprised when the door opens.

“Little boy, you better get your a**… off my porch and bang on my door like that,” he wife said. “I’ll call the police, you have to go. Don’t you ever stand in front of my fucking door like that.

The boy leaves without saying a word.

Later, a black man identified by NBC 5 as Dezerrea Nash went to Brunson’s front door to ask why his son was cracking a whip on his porch.

In the video, Nash is overheard telling Brunson, 39, that his son banged on her door with a whip and then allegedly damaged one of their vehicles, footage found by a neighbor. The son is said to have scratched a car.

“I’m trying to have a civilized conversation,” Nash said.

“I don’t know but my son told me your boy attacked him on the way home,” Brunson replied from his home, later saying he thinks both families had “beef” from previous altercations.

A woman, believed to be Nash’s wife, who is recording the conversation from the sidewalk, is overheard and says her son is 13 years old and doesn’t go to the same school as Brunson’s son.

Brunson was not interested in seeing alleged video evidence that his son damaged the vehicle.

“Get off my property, seriously, get off my property,” Brunson said, “because you don’t come here and talk nice. You accuse my son.’

Nash and his wife again mention that they have video of the damage done. After Brunson tells Nash to get off his plant vine, he comes outside and both men yell expletives at each other.

“Your son came in here with a frigging whip,” Nash said as he walked away from the property. “Bring his ass over here again and see what the hell happens.”

Nash told NBC 5 that hours before he went to Brunson’s home, he and his wife called the police to report the damage to their vehicle.

Kaufman County Constable from District 2 Jason Kaufman narrated news week that Brunson’s son is 9 years old and too young to be arrested for alleged damage to Nash’s vehicle, adding that the Nash family has been provided with other means of prosecution.

“We as law enforcement have done everything we could with due diligence to arrest the right person at the right time,” Johnson said.

Brunson was arrested for fatal conduct for recklessly firing a firearm. Johnson pointed out that Brunson’s son was standing directly behind him when the gun was fired.

“We were lucky the round didn’t hit this kid or anyone else,” he said.

Local authorities have “upped patrol for both families” in lieu of events, with Johnson saying the Nash family reportedly received some threats following the situation. He said the altercation was probably not the best time for either party to speak due to heightened emotions.

“People need to calm down and learn to talk to each other. [I]It would be better to let things calm down a bit and settle the matter another time,” he added.

Nash told NBC 5 that the video was posted online for a reason.

“We want to put that out to let people know, ‘Hey, this stuff is still legit,'” Nash said. “You just saw what happened in Buffalo, New York. This can escalate very quickly. So we want to avoid that and put this story out there and let them know that racism is real and we think it was definitely racially motivated.”

news week reached out to the Nash family for comment.
