Georgia officer restraining 10-year-old during father’s arrest was excessive!


A Georgia police officer’s conduct with an emotional 10-year-old boy is drawing scrutiny after the police department released body camera video of an officer restraining the child.

On Friday, officers with the Athens-Clarke County Police Department were called to a home in relation to a domestic violence suspect.

Officers carried out their investigation and placed the suspect under arrest.

While taking the man into custody, police said the boy became emotionally distraught and started running around, begging officers not to arrest his father.

Body camera footage captured by an officer was posted on Facebook.

At first, the boy is seen being restrained by the adults around him while he yelled at officers.

Back up,” one woman yelled, pulling the boy back. “Who you trying to fight?”

When those attempts to deter the child were unsuccessful, he became more upset and started running around and jumped towards an officer.

The officer is then seen wrestling the child to the ground before forcefully restraining him.

“Calm down, calm down man,” the officer called out.

Within a few minutes, the child settled down and started to apologize.

“Understand,” the officer said. “Yes, sir,” the child replied. “You don’t run up on an officer.”

The boy settled down and officers helped him to his feet and took off the handcuffs.

Officers then escorted the boy to see his father who was in the back of a cop car.

The child asked his father for his phone and said he was going to call someone to bail him out before letting out a cry and patting his father on the head.

“He didn’t do nothing,” he insisted.

The officer allows the boy to approach the patrol car, leading him to the window where his father was seated. The boy takes his father’s phone, letting his dad knows that he’ll call someone who will be able to bail him out.

“Will you get out, Daddy?” he asks. “I love you.”

“Be strong,” the father, who was restrained in the back of the vehicle tells his son, as he leans his head toward the window so his son can pat his head.

The department released the body camera footage after the boy’s family posted their own video to Facebook.

(Sic) didn’t do anything but was tryna talk to his dad who was in the police car,” Ariel Collins, the boy’s cousin, wrote on her Facebook post.

Police Chief Scott Freeman ordered an internal investigation due to a “juvenile involvement.”

Al Sharpton Embraces Stephon Clark’s Brother & Slams White House for calling shooting a ‘local matter’


SACRAMENTO, CA – MARCH 29: Rev. Al Sharpton (L) is hugged by Stevante Clark during the funeral services for police shooting victim Stephon Clark

The Reverend Al Sharpton is not impressed with the White House’s response to the police overkill of an unarmed black man in Sacramento, California. 22-year-old Stephon Clark was shot 20 times after he was spotted hopping a fence into his grandmother’s backyard during a police foot chase.

Clark is suspected of attempting to break into a car and a home on 29th Street on March 18. Police say he fit the description of the suspect who wore a black hoodie. Two pursuing officers claim they mistook his cell phone for a gun.

Sharpton supported Clark’s family, including his brother Ste’vante Clark, at Clark’s funeral on Thursday.

The reverend condemned the White House for calling the police shooting a “local matter” rather than a federal rights violation.

“They have been killing black men all across the country,” said Sharpton. “We are going to start standing up. It’s time to stop this madness. We will make Donald Trump and the whole world deal with police misconduct. Stephon Clark has woke up the nation.” If the killing of Amadou Diallo didn’t wake this country up 19 years ago, it never will.

Another Black Man Killed in NC, yet President Obama is concerned about his Legacy?


Police fatally shot a North Carolina man they claim was armed — but a woman who said she was his daughter cried out on Facebook Live that he didn’t have a gun, triggering riotous protests that stretched out into the streets of Charlotte during pre-dawn hours of the morning.

As always, Charlotte police said Keith Lamont, 43 posed as an imminent threat when they tried to serve him with a warrant and he exited his vehicle with a gun. Lamont’s daughter took to her Facebook page to recant the cops claims that her father was armed.

In the meantime nation of Islam leader, The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan chastised President Barack Obama for reprimanding black people about protecting his legacy.

Farakhan spoke with disdain in his voice about Obama’s self-serving speech at the Congressional Black Caucus gala, where Obama said his presidential “legacy” was in jeopardy if black people didn’t vote for Hillary Clinton.

“I just want to tell you, Mr. President, you’re from Chicago, and so am I,” said Minister Farrakhan during a service at Union Temple Baptist Church in Washington, D.C. on Sunday.

“I go out in the street with the people… I visited the worst neighborhoods… I talked to the gangs. They said, ‘you know, Farrakhan, the president ain’t never come… could you get him to come and look after us?’”

Farrakhan added:

“There’s your legacy, Mr. President… it’s in the streets with your suffering people, Mrs. President. And if you can’t go and see about them, then don’t worry about your legacy… ’cause the white people that you serve so well… they’ll preserve your legacy — the hell they will — but you didn’t earn your legacy with us!

“You didn’t earn your legacy with Black people. You fought for the rights of gay people… You fight for Israel… Your people are suffering and dying in the streets!”

“Obama Issues Statement On Deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castille”


obama-statement-550x323President Obama made a brief statement about the senseless shooting deaths of 2 black males by cops.

In a statement released on Thursday, Obama said he was “encouraged” that his justice department opened an investigation into the death of Alton Sterling.

The 37-year-old father-of-5 was selling CDs outside a Baton Rouge convenience store when he was killed by 2 cops early Wednesday.

Obama also mentioned 32-year-old Philando Castile, a Minnesota cafeteria worker who was shot to death on Wednesday by a milquetoast cop during a routine traffic stop.

“We’ve seen such tragedies far too many times, and our hearts go out to the families and communities who’ve suffered such a painful loss,” Obama said in his statement.

Obama took care to praise the thousands of men and women in law enforcement who risk their lives to protect the public.

“To admit we’ve got a serious problem in no way contradicts our respect and appreciation for the vast majority of police officers who put their lives on the line to protect us every single day,” Obama said. “It is to say that, as a nation, we can and must do better to institute the best practices that reduce the appearance or reality of racial bias in law enforcement.”

Medical Examiners Report Confirms: It was HOMICIDE!!!


Eric Garner’s death by chokehold was ruled a homicide.

The Staten Island man who collapsed after being placed in the banned restraint by a Staten Island police officer died from compression of the neck and chest, the New York City Medical Examiner ruled Friday.

Although we didn’t need a medical examiner to confirm what was already evident and seen on the video circulating throughout the nation, these finding only further state the TRUTH.

The 43-year-old victim’s asthma, obesity and high blood pressure were also contributing factors in his death, the autopsy determined.

It was the latest development in a case that sparked national outrage after The Daily News obtained video showing Officer Daniel Pantaleo putting Garner in the chokehold.
