The Atlanta Police Department is defending the methods of one of its officers who detained a Black lady forcibly.
The video shows a male cop identified as “Officer Brooks” slamming the woman to the ground and flashing his Taser while she begs the officer to tell her what she’s being detained for in the video.

The Atlanta Police Department released a body camera video and a thorough statement to defend the heated incident between an officer and Angel Guice, which was captured on film and extensively circulated on social media.
According to the Atlanta Police Department, because Guice did not sign the ticket at first, “the officer may then physically arrest the individual.”
“She began actively resisting his efforts. This resulted in a physical altercation as the officer attempted to place her into custody,” according to the statement.
