Dekalb residents fast asleep in July were on the receiving end of police brutality, so says Donovan Hall and his younger brother.
Video obtained by Ellenwood, GA residents, and released to the media this week shows eight deputies using excessive force trying to serve a civil warrant. But the deputies never announced who, or what they were looking for.
The officers failure to disclose the nature of the home visit left the Hall family to assume they were at the wrong address. But it was no mistake. It seems all eight DeKalb deputies were at the Hall home to serve a civil warrant.
The family relived the disturbing incident in a recent interview, revealing they also caught it on tape when one of the family members documented the entire incident by pressing record on his phone.

The show that gave Memphis, Tennesee the title of “murder capital” is coming to Atlanta.
Dekalb County Police has signed a contract with producers of the popular A&E docu-drama “The First 48,” and production crews began shooting just last week.

As I was pursing the Dekalb county mugshots over at Muggn, I came across this gem of all gems. First, I have no idea what ol’ boy did to get jacked up in D.C. but I’m sure his boss over at Bruh Man Security was pissed when he didn’t make it to his post by midnight.
Wonder what the charge is? Assault with a deadly flashlight?? 😯 Seriously….how do you get locked up in your security uniform?

Two idiotic DeKalb County officers are being investigated for allegedly performing a background check on President Barack Obama. Officials would not release the names of the officers accused in the July 20th incident, but they each have been placed on administrative leave after the United States Secret Service notified county officials that Dekalb County computer equipment had been used to do a query on the President.
The officers have not been charged with any crime (yet) but the county’s Internal Affairs division is handling the official investigation. When questioned about the incident, William “Miz” Miller, DeKalb Public Safety director stated that such behavior would not be tolerated from their officers.
“As Public Safety Director for DeKalb County, I want everyone to know that we take these allegations very seriously,” he said in a statement. “We expect our officers to adhere to professional standards and departmental policy. Furthermore, we do not and will not condone the inappropriate use of county equipment or resources.” (Source)
