GA Heroes Draw Guns On Kids Building Tree Fort

Police in Georgia forced a group of fifth graders to the ground at gunpoint this week as they attempted to build a tree fort in their own neighborhood.

According to 911 records, Henry County Police were called after a neighbor noticed the children “chopping off tree limbs,” an activity she claimed was hurting the environment and creating “tripping hazards.”

Police arrived on scene to find 11-year-old Omari Grant and his friends playing in a small patch of trees, prompting at least one officer to reportedly draw his firearm and force the boys to the ground.

“I was thinking that I don’t want to be shot today, so I just listened to what they said,” Grant said.

As the children lay face down, the officer allegedly screamed profanities as he forced them to spread their arms and legs. Grant’s mother, Janice Baptiste, detailed her son’s experience in an interview with WSB-TV.

“All he could get out at the time was, ‘Mom, he had a gun in my face, he had a gun in my face,’” Baptiste said. “So my son was of course traumatized by that.”

After the children were searched, Grant was taken back to his home by the officer, who also startled Baptiste with his unstable appearance.

“He just came with such an attitude,” Baptiste said. “His whole physical appearance was one of, ‘I’m Mr. Big and bad.’”

Grant says he is now hesitant to play outside in his own neighborhood, afraid of the very police he always looked up to.

“I learned that they’re supposed to help you, not make you feel scared to even come outside,” Grant said.

Edgar Dillard, whose wife made the 911 call, was reportedly stunned to hear of the neighbor boys’ encounter with police.

“Yeah, that’s pretty shocking to hear that a gun was pulled on a child,” Dillard said.

Baptiste has filed an excessive force complaint with the department, which has now opened an internal investigation. When questioned about the officer’s actions, Sgt. Joey Smith remained relatively tight-lipped.

“If it was justified then we’ll deal with it, if it wasn’t we’ll address it as well,” Smith said.

Despite the investigation, both officers remain on duty.

Unfortunately, police officers across the country who work to become positive role models for children, like the Texas cop who recently stopped to play catch with a young boy, are overshadowed by officers who abuse their power.

    This is a mobile capture of Russian police dashcam. The passenger opens fire with full auto AK on police, injuring at least one cop, while the other cop returns fire, several other police vehicles arrive shortly on scene.

    This recording of the dashcam video is most likely recorded by the uploader with his mobile phone of the monitor, while the footage was being reviewed by police.

    You can hear someone chuckle and another person reprimand him for laughing during the audio of a screaming costumed porktard.

  2. think awhile, before you dial, the torment of twitches, as you recall, the melee and maul, robbed of your riches, cursed by witches, beaten with switches, abandoned in stitches, in coldest dark pitches, of deepest dank ditches, by the blackheartedest bitches.

  3. More victims of share-ria. Give your share to godvernment, share all you have, share your children, or else.

    You know you’re screwed when you’re walking on shells
    and fire’s burning like a demon from hell
    In your lungs, to your tongue

    When a teacher does his best to protect. but still a bullet finds its way to her chest. she said, “Burning, I’m burning!”

    Feel the earth rumble no one’s safe – on the streets of Tehran

    You can take my eyes. But leave your stones in your gardens. Your rivers, your roads. You can take my eyes
    You can claim that the way I dress. is offensive to your God

    They want you gone and silent, declare you a martyr and let the streets run violent. Do your best to comply
    a pension for your lies

    They said, “Neda, don’t be afraid, don’t be afraid”
    “Neda, stay with me, stay!”

    I am responsible. I know that now. The laws are so simple;
    you let what you allow. I know that now. A voice should be heard. You showed me why and how

    “Neda, don’t be afraid, don’t be afraid”
    “Neda, stay with me, stay!”

    Deny the Myths, Open Your Eyes and See the Truth About Men

    – an inherent part of sex, for men, is to physically objectify the woman they have sex with. usually this doesn’t happen all the time, but whenever it does, it is a normal process. in a different manner, it is common for women to objectify a man in her own way as well.

    – normal chicks turn down guys all the time, nothing ever happens. it’s fat and ugly chicks that never say no. it’s fat and ugly chicks who imagine that should a woman ever say no, she’ll get raped; because they have no conception of turning a man down.

    also, no chick is too ugly not be able to find someone to have sex with her. lower your standards some, and you’ll find plenty of takers for what you’re giving.

    it is only the deranged women who become so ugly on the inside, that they become incapable of seeing the willing men, who are all around them, ready to do what the women want them to do.

    deranged women who shrivel up and dry out from the inside and become walking dead predatory zombies against men, many of these men would have willingly done what women wanted, had the women only asked in the first place and not resorted to aggression.

    • Amen to that Garysco. I doubt we’ll see it happen; ever. Too much of what they confiscate never makes it to the evidence room. You start doing “golden flow” on the thin swine line and you’ll have a cop shortage right quick. It’s that equal protection under the law thingy; some of us (if we wear the state’s robes and medallion) are more equal than others.

  4. Edgar Dillard’s wife needs to be bitch-slapped.

    Cops in the 2014 are not the “good cops” she grew up believing in.
    I hope she overcomes her pride and admits to herself what she had done.
    Shame on her.
