Yeah yeah we know: Stop resisting, let them beat you with a metal rod. Don't like it? Too bad.
A video of a DeKalb County, Georgia cop was released over the weekend. It shows an officer beating a woman with a baton as, he says, she resisted arrest.The department was aware of the incident, but was not aware of the cellphone video taken by a bystander that you can see above.
The officer was cleared following the Internal Affairs investigation. However, now that the department has this new evidence, they reopened the investigation and will determine whether the incident is consistent with policy and the law.
