A Georgia cop who was caught on camera trying to shake down a citizen for a bribe, turning to the woman with the camera and slapping it out of her hand, [__resigned this week__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/nZ2NH) after admitting to the crimes.
But Brandon Brown has yet to be arrested, even though the district attorney has been [__reviewing the case__](https://photographyisnotacrime.com/2013/09/georgia-cop-caught-camera-demanding-bribe-resigns-still-arrested/Police%20said%20his%20case%20was%20forwarded%20to%20the%20district%20attorney%20on%20August%206%20for%20possible%20prosecution.) since August 6, proving once again that police are above the law.
Instead, Dekalb County Police Chief Cedric Alexander is [__vowing to restore “swagger”__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/nZ2ns) within the department.
But [__swagger__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/swagger), defined as carrying oneself arrogantly, pompously or even bullying, is exactly the way they’ve been acting these last few years, which is why another cop was arrested [__last week__](http://www.ajc.com/news/news/breaking-news/dekalb-police-officer-arrested-on-drug-trafficking/nZpjb/) on drug trafficking charges and a previous chief was [__sentenced to prison__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/nSndb) last year for a bribery conviction and several other officers [__arrested earlier this year__](http://www.ajc.com/news/news/local/feds-announce-police-corruption-arrests/nWMf7/) for protecting drug dealers (just a few of several stories I found on Google).
Perhaps the fact that Brown was only demanding $50 from a man in exchange for not arresting him on marijuana charges early last month made him look like small potatoes compared to the rest of the department.
After all, a cop with swagger would have demanded much more.
*Call Dekalb County District Attorney Robert James at (404) 371-2561 to inquire as to why Brown has not yet been charged.*
