Family outraged after video shows police officers laughing as they tasered man in station

Georgia-1-696x399

July 22, 2018 - A Georgia family wants justice after a newly released video revealed that Rome police officers laughed as a drunken 22-year-old Juan Porter was tasered. The case stems from a 2017 arrest where Sherriff’s deputy, Sgt. Matthew Battle was terminated after the sheriff’s office took swift action and determined he had violated policy. But the new video shows Battle possibly wasn’t the only officer who used excessive force and taunted Porter. 

The county now faces a lawsuit over excessive force allegations.

“It is outrageous,” said Felicia Curry, Porter’s mother. “It did some damage to my son mentally.” Visit www.thegrio.com for full article.
