Cops Beat Young Man and Falsely Claim He Assaulted Police


November 5th, 2015 6:15pm
Atlanta police pulled over Jeremy Hogens.  When he pulled into the driveway at 75 Mayson Ave NE, officers ran up to the car and smashed out the driver's side window, shouting "Show me your fucking hands!".  Police hit Hogens in the head with a metal baton and held him face down on the glass-covered pavement.

To justify the attack, police claimed that Hogens had tried to crush officers against a fence with his car, and charged him with aggravated assault on a police officer.  Hogens faced a minimum of 5 years prison time.

But as this video shows, the police report was false.  The car was never in a position to pin anyone against the fence. When our video was presented in court, the DA was forced to drop Jeremy's charge.
