6 Atlanta police officers charged with assaulting 2 college students at protest

Six policemen are facing a slew of charges after bodycam footage showed them dragging 2 college students from a car who were returning from protests calling for an end to police violence against black citizens in Atlanta. Two of the officers involved have already been fired from the department. The officers were filmed breaking windows of a vehicle, yanking a woman out of the car and tasing a man

How else are the police supposed to maintain the law? If police are getting fired for doing their jobs then they might as well let the looters, rioters and violent protesters burn down their city.

Just sitting back eating popcorn watching New Yorkers burn down their city. 300 buildings down and counting how disgraceful.

They were not doing their job the way they were trained to do their job...... If your surgeon was sloppy and enraged while operating on you that's negligence right..... Well sloppy and enraged busting windows on car deploying taser cause subjects slow to follow commands wasn't the appropriate response for the situation... Police train to use lots of tools... Enraged ain't one of em..... N pretty clear these skipped or marginalized their training and went way above the continuum use of force policy to effect the arrest.... Further what was the reason for the stop.. Was it valid.. Or was it cause they just profiled them.. Policing isn't some cop show... It's fluid constant training and mental conditioning to build appropriate muscle memory n in a blink reactions to actions... What worked one time may not work next time.... That stop wasn't a felony stop n if it was was it called to dispatch that way... You armchair clowns watch too many cop shows..... What's clear in these over n over gaffs and abuses of power is failure to train and I bet you often steroid roid rage and fear... Coupled with an arrogance that's inappropriate.. U gotta control ur fear... You forget..fear causes massive errors in judgement and execution of skills.. You forget or don't realize. It better be a valid stop cause if it isn't under the constitution a citizen has the right to resist unreasonable search and seizure of their person n property... Too many shakey cops make too many invalid shady stops.... Cause they cut corners n simply don't have the head to do the job.... Or cause they think the job gives em unchecked power... And they never had the head to do the job... If you think it's like the movies or TV.. You got zero business doing the job....... Bad rogue cops hurt every cop on the job who sacrifice everything to protect and serve you... With ethics dignity honor and high professional standards
