Police abuse Black political activist as he moves into his own house

Cops caught on tape slamming Georgia man into a wall as he moved into his new home

An Atlanta-area man filed a formal complaint against local authorities on Monday after video surfaced of an officer slamming him to the ground in front of his own home, WAGA-TV reported.

“I assumed — apparently incorrectly, and naively — that they were pursuing someone on foot that had fled through my yard, and I was unaware of it,” 69-year-old Dhoruba Bin-Wahad said at a press conference Monday afternoon. “I thought that that’s why they had their guns drawn.”

The May 2 encounter began when Clayton County police were called to Bin-Wahad’s residence by a neighbor who reported seeing a “suspicious” male on the vacant property. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that another witness thought Bin-Wahad was a “pervert trying to look at her or her children from the vacant location through the woods.”

According to a police report of the incident, officers described Bin-Wahad’s behavior as “uncooperative and verbally argumentative.” He was accused of taking “a bladed stance with his right side of his body” and allegedly refused to sit down when ordered to do so by them.

“When I came out of the house, the first thing I said was that ‘I’m moving in. I have the key,’” Bin-Wahad said on Monday. “They asked me why was my car in the back. I said, ‘It’s my house. I was loading boxes.’”

The terrible tragedy in Serbia, Croatia and Bosnia

I have a friend who lives in Serbia, a DJ colleague named Vlada. Recently his country and others in the region have experienced devastating floods and loss of life:

Although, I'll leave it up to you whether or not you'd choose to donate to organizations like the Red Cross, who are helping the men, women and children of Serbia, Bosnia and Croatia survive this terrible tragedy, I do however ask you to use social media to signal boost their plight.

If you belong to Twitter, Facebook and others please spread the word.

Thank you.

"Awww, you know that I can't stay mad at ya' for long."
