Georgia officers caught assaulting handcuffed man are fired
Two police officers working in Gwinnett County, Georgia have lost their jobs after a video was released showing them executing brutal force on a suspect they were arresting.
The Gwinnett County Police Department announced Thursday that the officer, three-year police veteran Robert McDonald, has been fired.
A Georgia police officer has been fired after a now-viral video showed him stomping a handcuffed suspect's head during a traffic stop Wednesday afternoon.
Gwinnett County District Attorney Danny Porter said he "anticipated" there being criminal charges filed against them.
Demetrius Hollins reacts to getting punched and kicked by Georgia police officers. The incident was captured on video by a witness.
"When police officers betray the public's trust and confidence, justice demands that all those cases that depend on their credibility be dismissed without delay", said a statement from Szabo's office. "We do not tolerate actions that are not consistent with our core values or state law", a police statement said.
"We want both of these officers criminally charged with assaulting Demetrius and violating his civil rights", Attorney Justin Smith said.
As Hollins lay handcuffed on the ground, "another cop came out of nowhere and stomped me in the face".
"He start (ed) shoving me in my vehicle and telling me that I was never going to have a video, that I was never going to make the phone call to my mom", Hollins told NBC News.
Smith said Hollins had a previous physical encounter with Bongiovanni during a traffic stop past year in the same area.
From the looks of it, it is something the two Gwinnett County police officers have been doing on a regular basis.
McDonald was "involved in a use of force where a handcuffed man was kicked in the head", according to the Gwinnett County Police Department.
The second video did not surface until after McDonald was terminated, leading to Bongiovanni's termination. The video ends shortly after the officers place the driver on the trunk of his vehicle. He then helped the other officer load Hollins into a police vehicle.
"He start [ed] shoving me in my auto and telling me that I was never going to have a video, that I was never going to make the phone call to my mom", he told NBC News in an exclusive interview.
"All I could say is, I wish this never happened to me", a bloodied and bruised Hollins told reporters after leaving with his lawyers. Hollins was handcuffed and prone at the time.
Hollins told NBC that he had an "encounter" with Bongiovanni before and wanted to take video of his arrest. He was one of several department members named "Officer of the Month" in November 2015.
This was a shift from what he said on the campaign trail, when he called for a stricter policy on all undocumented immigrants. Philadelphia officers have arrested six times as many immigrants without criminal records as they did the previous year.
