Off Duty Atlanta Cop Attacks Man at Walmart Over False Accusation

26 Apr

This off-duty Atlanta Cop walks up and attacks a man leaving a Walmart, then charges him with resisting arrest for a crime the man did not do.

Cop not only need to lose his badge, but spend a year or two in jail.

Atlanta cop in ‘Robocop mode’ caught on tape breaking man’s leg — over a Walmart tomato

An Atlanta man is suing a local police officer for attacking him over a tomato inside a local Walmart, WSB-TV reported.

“As he’s grabbing me, he’s beating me at the same time, [saying] ‘Get on the ground,’” Tyrone Carnegay said of his encounter with Officer Trevor King. “Beating me at the same time.”

Security footage of the October 2014 encounter shows King approach Carnegay as he is walking out of the store. A manager accused Carnegay of stealing the tomato from the store. King quickly takes his baton out and begins hitting Carnegay, who does not retaliate. King continues to hit Carnegay after he goes to the ground. King, who was off-duty but providing security for the store, later found Carnegay’s receipt for the tomato after reaching inside his pocket.

“The officer went into Robocop mode and beat the crap out of him,” said Carnegay’s attorney, Craig Jones.

Carnegay suffered two broken bones in his leg as well as a ruptured artery from the encounter, which required him to be hospitalized and have a titanium rod implanted in his leg. He also said he was handcuffed while in the hospital, though, because King “said I assaulted him and obstructed him from doing his job.”

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that Carnegay was jailed for three days after being charged with misdemeanor charges of simple battery against police and willful obstruction of law enforcement officers. The charges were later dropped.

    What gets me is how long they wait until they release the video from these incidents.

    There was a police shooting in some part of Texas last summer, and the victim was shot in the shoulder while he was kneeling on one knee and holding a bbq fork in his left hand.

    The officer’s lawyer is claiming that the gun his client was using was defective and went off by itself.

    I would suggest the cop get another lawyer

    Worse is the fact that it takes two years to get any sort of response in legal terms from the Police.

    That Cop is probably still on duty..

      Just like the plainclothes cop who assaulted James Blake last year in an attempt to arrest him.

      The officer had five open complaints against him.

    You ever notice cops never seem to do this kind of thing to outlaw bikers, known Mafia, even suspected terrorists get treated with restraint and respect. It’s only the people that they know will not provoke retaliation that get the beatings.
