    Officer got ‘free pass’ for excessive force on teen son, mother says

    Oh hell no, I would've lost my $#@! if someone grabbed one of my kids.

    When two teenage brothers got into an argument about what side of the car they would sit on as they were leaving a go-kart facility with their mother, they didn’t expect the police to intervene.

    The family from Cumming has accused a Roswell police officer of excessive force during the incident at Andretti Indoor Karting and Games in December, Channel 2 Action News reported.

    Officer Kenneth Robinson was sitting outside the facility when he saw one of the brothers, a 19-year-old, shove his younger brother. At that point, he allegedly got into the family’s SUV and forcefully put the boy’s arm behind his back, according to his mother, Susan Will.

    "I politely asked him, I said I appreciate your attentiveness, but please let go of my son's arm. The boys are just having an argument," Will told Channel 2.

    A police investigation revealed the officer never turned on his body camera, which is required by the department, or filed a report, according to internal documents obtained by Channel 2. That earned the officer a reprimand.

    Will said his superiors didn’t go far enough.

    She filed a complaint accusing Robinson of using excessive force. She told Channel 2 that the next morning, her son woke up in “extreme pain” and that the doctor told them it was likely a torn rotator or labrum and he would need an MRI. She wants the city to pay for the medical bills.

    The lack of video evidence led to Robinson, and a sergeant who was his supervisor, being cleared of allegations of excessive force by the department.

    According to internal documents, Robinson told his superiors that “he did not know what was going on and that all he knew was that he saw the male assaulting another in the car and that they were disturbing the peace."

    Will thinks Robinson got a “free pass,” Channel 2 reported.

    In the time since the incident, Robinson and the sergeant resigned for personal reasons, Channel 2 reported.

    Having a bodycam and not having it on should create a presumption of guilt.

    See? That's the trouble. I would have told him "This is a family matter that you don't want to be included in. Stand the $#@! down and back the $#@! off."
    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.

    How many times have you been to jail?
    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

    Technically, twice for me but for the same offense so I guess that only counts as once. I'd happily go back if some creep laid his hands on one of my kids. I would like to think that I could stay calm and handle the situation but I know I can't. I've felt myself shaking with rage when dealing with people just saying something mean to them - I can't imagine what I'd do if someone actually touched them.
