WATCH: Georgia Cop Attacks and Arrests Man while Recording in Public

It’s been more than a month since a Georgia man was attacked and handcuffed by a cop for asking a simple question while recording and so far no action has been taken to discipline the cop even though it’s been almost two weeks since the investigation has been completed.

But the victim, Marcus Coleman, who happens to be a police accountability activist, is on a mission to get him fired and charged.

South Fulton police officer Solomon Muhammad, meanwhile, remains on paid administrative leave since the January 29 incident, awaiting the results of the investigation.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation told local media this week that is wrapped up its investigation last month and forwarded its findings to the Fulton County District Attorney who is supposed to make a decision as to whether Muhammad committed a crime.

The video shows the cop attacked Coleman simply because he was annoyed that the activist was questioning why he was not directing traffic following a traffic collision. Coleman also threatened to contact the police chief over the cop not directing traffic which is when the cop chased after him and arrested him.

The cop also held his taser against Coleman’s chest, threatening to taser him. Coleman was handcuffed and forced to sit in the back of a cop car for more than 40 minutes until a supervisor released him with no charges.

According to Fox 5:

Marcus Coleman is calling on Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis to file criminal charges against South Fulton police officer Solomon Muhammad saying he should feel the extent of the law he was supposed to protect, serve and uphold.

“He needs to be fired. His POST certification needs to be snatched, revoked. He needs to be charged. He needs to be convicted and sentenced properly, and then he needs to be made an example of for the citizens in our new city of South Fulton, what we will not tolerate,” the community activist told FOX 5.

“Cpl. Solomon Muhammad put a Taser to this brother’s chest in complete violation of operating procedures. Placed it above his heart just for asking a question, just for making a statement that he was going to speak to his superior officer,” said Coleman’s attorney, J. Edward Shipp.

According to 11 Alive:

“The disparities over policing. People are tired, man,” he said, Tuesday. “People are tired of getting harassed because of the color of their skin. People are tired of getting harassed because of the police culture, whether it’s a white officer, Black officer, pink officer, fuchsia. We want them to uphold their oath to protect and serve.”

The Fulton County District Attorney’s office have not responded to inquiries from local media about when it plans to announce its decision even though it received the GBI’s report almost two weeks ago on February 22.

Coleman and his lawyer spoke at a press conference on Wednesday, addressing the incident which you can view here. The above video is from the January 29 incident.

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.
