Officer who murdered Donovan Lewis in Columbus was already terminated.

The Columbus Division of Police released the employee records of an officer who killed an unarmed melanin man. The records showed that the officer had been fired and then hired back.  Officer Ricky Anderson's record was released three days after the funeral of Donovan Lewis, 20, whom he fatally shot. In Anderson's most recent performance assessments from 2020 and 2019, his superiors said that he surpassed expectations in practically every area. These included communication, reliability, understanding of the work, problem-solving, and officer safety. In addition, Supervising Sgt.

Taxpayers liable for man mauled by dog while held down by 4 cops

As the PBWW channel often recounts, families who call 911 for medical assistance for a loved one sometimes get police assistance instead. Over the years, deploying police to medical situations has had disastrous outcomes, with innocent individuals who needed medical attention instead getting fists, batons, pepper spray, and even gunshots. Travis Moya was the most recent person to be hurt by this egregious failure. A K-9 attacked him in his front yard because he was trying to get medical help. The Fulton County District Attorney's Office said they will not bring charges against Moya after fighting false accusations that were made to support the abusive police tactics. Now a lawsuit is being conducted. After looking at police bodycam footage, senior district attorney Melissa Roth wrote in a court document from June 2 that "the state feels a jury would find insufficient evidence to support a judgement of guilt." According to Moya's lawyer, L. Chris Stewart, the last year

Gilliam says he ran because cops kill melanated people all the time and he was afraid of the police. The driver says he had no choice but to lie down on the ground and put his hands out in surrender after crashing his car. The K-9, Knox, followed Surbrook's orders and mauled the compliant man as he lay on the floor. He says he surrendered and could not get to his hands and feet to get up after the dog mauling. The video shows Surbrook yelling at his dog to attack Gilliam, who was unarmed and lying on the street. The dog followed Sur Brook's orders. The incident occurred on March 5. The man is suing the MSP and the police department. "He's got me…he's
