Cop Plants Knee on Homeless Man, Punching him Repeatedly, Yelling, “Turn Over!”

A Kentucky cop was caught on video repeatedly punching a man in the face while ordering him to “turn over!”.

The only problem was, the unidentified Louisville police officer was making it impossible for him to turn over by planting his knee and full body weight on the man.

Louisville police say Foussene Pemba had been “harassing people” in a parking garage of an office building Tuesday morning.

The video recorded by a bystander begins after police have taken Pemba to the ground and are trying to handcuff him.

The video shows two officers on top of Pemba who is laying on his back when he appears to strike the cop in the face with his fist which is when the cop unleashes a flurry of punches to his face while ordering him to turn over.

According to WDRB:

According to an arrest report, officers were called to the parking garage at the PNC Tower in downtown Louisville, just before 9:45 a.m. Tuesday, after someone reported that a man was harassing people and causing a disturbance.

When officers arrived, they say they found security holding 29-year-old Foussene Pemba in a bear hug. Police say security employees told them they tried to escort Pemba off the property, but he became combative and they were unable to remove him.

Police say they tried to put Pemba in handcuffs, but he put his hands in front of his waist and “refused to follow instructions to put his hands behind his back.” According to the arrest report, officers then took Pemba to the ground, where he continued to fight for about one minute.

Police say they then tried to tase Pemba when he refused to follow directions.

At that point, police say Pemba hit one of the officers in the face, cutting him over his left eye. That officer then hit Pemba with an “…empty hand to attempt to gain compliance.” Pemba was eventually handcuffed and “hobbled.”

Pemba was charged with two counts of assault on a police officer, one count of resisting arrest, one count of disorderly conduct and two counts of criminal trespass. He’s being held on a $5,000 cash bond.

The police report also accuses Pemba of biting two cops, including one whose penis he grabbed, but that is not evident in the video. The Louisville Police Department said it is investigating.

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.
