Yesterday, footage released on Facebook by Black Lives Matter of Greater Atlanta, displays a black man being dragged from his car and handcuffed by one police officer. Moments later, another officer appears dashing in on the scene towards the handcuffed man — who’s then lying on the ground — the officer then appears to brutally stomp on the man’s face, for no reason and continues to assault the man by digging his knee into his back.

The man lying on the ground handcuffed, was not resisting arrest or showing any signs of aggression towards anyone in the video.

This act of police brutality is utterly disgusting, watch the video below:

Gwinnett Police Kicks Handcuffed Black Man In The Face

MAKE THIS VIRAL: We are DEMANDING that Gwinnett County Police Department immediately terminate this officer who viciously kicked a HANDCUFFED BLACK MAN lying on the ground in the middle of the street (off Sugarloaf Parkway) without cause and without merit. After brutally kicking him in the face, blood splattered everywhere. Black Lives Matter of Greater Atlanta is now hereby seeking to have criminal charges brought against this officer expeditiously. This is why we take to the streets and scream #BlackLivesMatter, it's because American police officers have ZERO regards for black lives, they beat us, shoot and kill us without a blink of an eye and the biggest problem is, it all goes UNCHALLENGED. We can almost betcha the Chief of Police will say, "I'm sorry but we can't speak on personnel matters or we are conducting a full investigation" and after the investigation they will say… "We have determined to INVESTIGATE OURSELVES and found no wrong doings"Posted By Sir Maejor, President of BLMGA #BlackLivesMatter #BlackLivesMatterATl #BlackLivesMatterGA #BlackLivesMatterAtlanta

“After brutally kicking him in the face, blood splattered everywhere.”

The group stated it would now seek to have criminal charges pressed against the officer.

The Gwinnett County police department is yet to comment on the video.
