Caught On Video: Atlanta Police Officer Relieved of Duty after Viral Video Shows him Punching Man in Face.

Tuesday, June 27th, 2017

A video shared by the Facebook account of Black Lives Matter of Greater Atlanta on June 23rd, 2017, shows a person in an Atlanta Police Department uniform punching a restrained man in the face and upper torso while he sits one top of him.All the while one of his co-workers hold the victim’s feet and another has his knee pressing down on the lower back with all his weight, also there is the fourth police officer that is simply standing there watching everything happen right at his feet.
All this force used to arrest a person who appears to be less than 150lbs and lying face down on a roadway median of dirt. Anyone who has been in a situation like this knows this is not a position of leverage or control. So what is it incompetence, lack of training or just another “Bad Apple” if you fall for that theory.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution covers the incident and provides no new information related to the nature of the incident nor the charges levied against the victim.

Hundreds of thousands flee Florida coast to escape Matthew’s fury

Thursday, October 6th, 2016

Hundreds of thousands of anxious people boarded up their homes and businesses and grabbed a few belongings to flee inland as Hurricane Matthew gained strength and roared toward the Southeast seaboard on Thursday.
In Florida, Gov. Rick Scott said the state, its skies already darkening from early outer rain bands of the life-threatening storm, could be facing its “biggest evacuation ever” as Matthew menaces almost all the state’s Atlantic coast.
As people hurried for higher ground, authorities in South Carolina said a motorist died on Wednesday after being shot by deputies during an altercation along an evacuation route.
Scott said Florida, its skies already darkening from early outer rain bands of the life-threatening storm, could be facing its “biggest evacuation ever” as Matthew menaces almost all the state’s Atlantic coast.
About 2 million people from Florida across Georgia to South Carolina were being encouraged to head inland and away from the most powerful storm to threaten the Atlantic coast in more than a decade. Matthew killed at least 16 people in the Caribbean as it sliced through Haiti, Cuba and the Bahamas.
“This is a dangerous storm,” Scott warned. “The storm has already killed people. We should expect the same impact in Florida.”
Hurricane Matthew is barreling over the Bahamas and taking aim at Florida, expected to near the Atlantic coast starting Thursday night. The Category 3 storm has top sustained winds of 125 mph. Florida hasn’t been hit by a storm this powerful in more than a decade.
Florida emergency officials said 48 shelters in schools already have begun providing refuge to more than 3,000 people, some with special needs, mostly in coastal counties where evacuations both mandatory and voluntary were underway. Patients also were transferred from two Florida waterfront hospitals and a nursing home near Daytona Beach to safer locations.
