Army Veteran Sues Georgia Police for Fabricating Evidence after Criticizing them

https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=1&v=n36GaUv35l4

An Army Veteran for the United States Military has filed suit against three Kennesaw, Georgia police officers last week alleging they fabricated evidence to retaliate and arrest him for criticizing how they handled an incident he called them to handle.

The incident involved a man who pulled a gun on him and his friends.

Matthew Solon disarmed the man, but was subsequently arrested for what some say was a heroic act that may have saved the life of his friends.

On June 26, 2017 Solon was out with friends at a sports bar when he says he was approached by Dwight Cooper, who was belligerently drunk and threatening Solon and his friends with a gun.

Solon drew on his military training to disarm Cooper and dialed 911.

When Kennesaw police officers arrived, Solon was arrested and Cooper was transported to the hospital.

Cooper and Solon were both charged with misdemeanors and felonies for possession of a firearm during the commission of crimes, according to Boston 25 News.

That’s why Solon’s arrest is in dispute.

Kennesaw police officer Joshua Hale wrote in his report that Solon disobeyed orders after officer arrived on the scene and that Solon stated he took Cooper’s gun and struck him in the head with it, “so he would stay down.”

However, Solon claims that’s a lie.

His lawsuit alleges police fabricated that statement, so the could arrest him after he criticized how they handled the incident.

Criminal charges against Solon were eventually dropped, but charges against Cooper are currently pending.

“I thought I did everything right,” Solon recalled in an interview about the incident.

“I unloaded the weapon, I eliminated the threat, called the police, gave him medical attention, everything, and when the police arrive they acted like I’m the criminal here.”

Solon, who filed the lawsuit last week, is seeking a jury trial and damages.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
