Apparently, it is a challenge for law enforcement to keep their hands off people over small indications, the basic teachings to respect one of another in pre-school must not have been taught to these officers. The days cannot go by without a law abiding citizen being punished to the threats of police brutality. Two Georgia officers, Robert McDonald & Michael Bongiovanni were involved in an assault of a male motorist at a traffic stop with his hands up in surrender, where they punched the man and stomped him in his head as he was handcuffed – has been fired Thursday.

“We acknowledge that the actions of these two officers have implications that will be felt for some time,” a Police statement recited according to AP “However, we also believe that our decisive action in terminating both officers speaks volumes about what is expected of each officer that wears a Gwinnett County police badge.”
Gwinnett County Police Department told the Associated Press Officer McDonald assaulted and yelled at his victim, later identified as Demetrius Bryan Hollins, 21 years old; called out for backup during a traffic stop at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, resulting in the victim with a bloodied nose and lips. On top of that Police Sergeant Michael Bongiovanni had another video of himself surfaced punching Hollins in the face with his hands up in no implication that he was resisting police authority.
The department has then allowed a criminal investigation from the intolerant behavior of the two officers. The results of the matter will be released over to the county district attorney that will eventually decide if the situation will be held as criminal charges in the cases.
