    Ex-Atlanta cop gets 5 years for beating Walmart customer over ‘stolen’ tomato

    1- Not enough.
    2- He retired. I wonder if he got his benefits.

    A former Atlanta police officer was sentenced to five years in prison Monday for beating a Walmart customer he wrongfully accused of stealing a tomato and trying to cover it up, Channel 2 Action News reported.

    Trevor King, 49, of Stockbridge, was convicted in December on federal charges of unreasonable force and falsifying a police report.

    According to prosecutors, King was in uniform and working off-duty at the Walmart on Martin Luther King Jr. Drive when he saw Tyrone Carnegay weigh a tomato and walk toward the store’s exit.

    King stopped the victim near the door and hit the victim with his baton seven times, breaking two bones in the victim’s right leg.

    As Carnegay lay on the floor bleeding from his injuries, prosecutors said King searched him and found a receipt for the tomato in Carnegay’s bag.

    The receipt showed he paid for the tomato only minutes before King’s attack.

    “King then wrote a false report to cover up his unjustified assault,” prosecutors said. “Additionally, King charged the victim with obstructing a shoplifting investigation and with assaulting a police officer.”

    King was indicted in December 2016 and retired in January 2017.

    His attorney, Odis Williams, said Monday’s sentence was “heartbreaking for Mr. King, for his family. He’s a father.”

    Following emergency surgery at Grady Memorial Hospital in 2014, Carnegay was taken to the Fulton County Jail on King’s bogus charges. Prosecutors ultimately dismissed them.

    “He got what he deserved,” Carnegay said Monday after the sentencing. “He did me wrong.”

    3- FEDERAL CHARGES. As in, the locality declined to do anything about it.
    There are no crimes against people.
    There are only crimes against the state.
    And the state will never, ever choose to hold accountable its agents, because a thing can not commit a crime against itself.

    I always wonder how they manage to skate TITLE 18, U.S.C., SECTION 242 in these cases (not really). This is, after all, why the law was written.
    Theye have refused their Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

    Theye have erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

    Theye kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies

    Theye have combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution,

    For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

    For cutting off our Trade with parts of the world:

    For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

    For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:

    Theye plundered and destroyed the lives of our people.

    Theye are at this time transporting Armies of Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy of a civilized nation.
