Two Georgia Cops Fired for Attack on Handcuffed Man

Btx3's Blog

Reported this yesterday. A Gwinnett County, Georgia Policeman stomping the face of a suspect, as he lay handcuffed on the ground.

Turns out he wasn’t the only officer to abuse this man.

Kudos to the Police Chief Butch Ayers for reacting to these crime decisively, and not with the cover ups like we have seen in places like Fergeson, Mo. Chief Ayers decision to fire the Officers involved makes a statement, not only to his Officers, but to the community as a whole, that there is no justification for illicit actions.

    Good first step taken by the removal of these two criminals from the department. Now let’s see if the prosecutor charges them for their crimes, and they go to trial. If charges are not brought all the ex officers will do is move on to another department and the cycle of abuse will continue. IMO, each state should pass a law that if an officer is fired for excessive force or abuse of any sort he/she would be banned from holding any law enforcement position of any sort.

  6. The sad part is that they often find a way to end up at some other agency. I saw the victim and his attorney on the news and even though he’s going to get paid, there is no amount of money to compensate him or the other victims for how they have been traumatized. Such a disgrace!!!

      True. They should have the right to work, but never again in a position of authority. I also agree with you that there’s no amount of money that truly compensates for such trauma and disgrace, but sadly that is what our society allows for “redress.”
