Police Brutality

Jerry Blasingame, who was paralyzed after Atlanta Police Officer Jon Grubbs Tasered him in 2018, has been awarded $100 million by a jury.

An Atlanta police sergeant was fired after a viral video showed him kicking a handcuffed woman in the face as she lay on the ground in front of him. But a cop who didn't stop the police brutality was not punished.

A local attorney sparked a conversation about whether Atlanta is really a mecca for Black people after a video surfaced of an Atlanta police officer kicking a woman in the face.

Recent cases in Colorado and Atlanta suggest that cops who stand by and watch their partners use police brutality and other misconduct on suspects who don't pose a threat are increasingly being punished for aiding and abetting. there could be growing accountability for police brutality on the city and state levels for members of law enforcement who don't de-escalate and use force as a first resort.

A police sergeant in Atlanta shown on video kicking an apparently handcuffed woman in the face while his partner stands by idly has been suspended without pay, but only after the graphic footage was made public.

Garrett Rolfe, who was fired for killing Rayshard Brooks, was reinstated as an officer with the Atlanta Police Department after an independent panel determined that he was denied certain rights during the appeal process to get his job back.

Two Atlanta Police Department officers were reinstated on Monday after tasing and violently arresting two historically Black college students during a viral arrest at the height of the Black Lives Matter protests this past summer.

The Atlanta police killing of Rayshard Brooks is the latest instance in a disturbing series of cops openly disrespecting their victims in the moments after using lethal force in situations that didn't call for it.
