Caught On Tape: Altercation Between Inmate & TN Police Lands Him In The Hospital With Broken Bones

"A surveillance video obtained by Channel 3 of a confrontation between Chattanooga Police and federal inmate Adam Tatum has prompted a news conference Thursday morning. The confrontation between Chattanooga Police and federal inmate Adam Tatum at the Salvation Army's halfway house last June that put Tatum in the hospital with broken bones and got Officers Sean Emmer and Adam Cooley fired for use of excessive force. Tatum's attorney, Robin Flores, obtained the video through court order from the Hamilton County District Attorney General's office. He's seeking to have Tatum's convictions thrown out, after Tatum pleaded guilty to assaulting the officers. "We counted at least 200 blows, 200 individual blows," says Tatum's attorney, Robin Flores. "They were dragging him by his broken leg.""

The man was already subdued. The taser job was just overkill.

I'd like to know what was going through the mind of the other cops that came in and completely stepped ovr the situation?

The things about these cops, is that they harbor racial feelings towards black men, and black women, but especially black men, so when they are in a position of power like this, they abuse it. I wonder if these fools knew that a camera was on them? Their hatred is showing. They would not have done this to a white man.

I don't think they would have cared one way or the other about a camera being on them. In their minds they actually felt what they were doing was under the auspice of "serving & protecting"...

...more SERVING than protecting.

So many things wrong with the video. In the beginning one of the officers wrapped his arms around his neck basically strangling him, then they hit him so many times and tasered him. These filths should to be burned alive.

Burning them alive to death would not be. Honestly how can they just fire them and not get any punishment but f*kin typical..police officers get away with everything...pathteic.

I didn't see the entire video, only about 1/3 through.

They could have pepper sprayed him for not listening to what they told him ('roll over; put your hands behind your back') yet they chose to beat him with a blunt object?

I know, pepper spray would get messy but I see it as better than beating on him.

This was completely wrong. I saw another one, where they did the same thing to a young guy, but he died. They hit this guy 200 times counting in this video. The other guy, they tazered him to death, and the guy did something minor, I cant remember. Some of these cops are out of control.
