Feb 23 - The Cop Who Stomped a Handcuffed Black Man's Head Is Now Facing Decades in Prison

A former Georgia cop caught on video stomping a handcuffed black man’s head during a traffic stop has been found guilty and now faces up to 26 years in prison.

Robert McDonald, who was at the time an officer in Gwinnett County, was convicted of aggravated a*sault, battery, and violation of oath of office on Thursday, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The 28-year-old was called for backup in April 2017 by his mentor, former Sgt. Michael Bongiovanni, who had stopped, struck, Tasered, and handcuffed Demetrius Hollins for driving a car without license tags, although the charges were later dropped. A police report at the time also said Hollins was stopped because his vehicle, which smelled like marijuana, switched lanes without signaling.




Upon arriving at the scene, McDonald, who pleaded not guilty to the a*sault and maintained his innocence on all charges, was captured on cellphone camera stomping on Hollins' head with his gun drawn. That footage was used repeatedly throughout McDonald’s trial. McDonald also said he felt threatened because Hollins had rolled over onto his side, and that he'd meant to step on the back of his shoulders.

McDonald also testified this week that Bongiovanni, usually calm, sounded panicked during a call over police radio, which made him believe, ‘Oh man, something’s really going on.’”

Bongiovanni later wrote in an incident report that Hollins “began to act strange” by saying things like “I need to call my mom” and “You have to let me go.” He also reported that he had previously arrested Hollins in 2016 for obstruction and marijuana charges, which contributed to him asking for a*sistance from McDonald.

Both Bongiovanni and McDonald were fired after video from the arrest went viral, and indicted in February 2018, according to the Daily Post. Bongiovanni later pleaded no contest to related a*sault and battery charges and agreed to testify against McDonald. He was sentenced to six months of work release and five months of home confinement.

But McDonald’s defense attorney, Walt Britt, argued that Bongiovanni should’ve been on trial, instead, because of his had previously faced allegations of use of force, and allegations of lying in a police report about the incident, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

“Former Sgt. Bongiovanni was given a sweetheart deal to testify against my client, though he was the instigator of the attacks on Mr. Hollins that led up to my client being dispatched to the scene,” Britt said in an emailed statement to VICE News, noting McDonald had never similarly been accused of lying in official statements.

McDonald is out of custody until his sentencing, which is expected to take place within the next few weeks. He has no prior criminal record.

Please do that. I don’t agree with your politics but if you could take every case of these bully a*s cops fukin up people and even k*lling people Id love it. Something needs to be done. Send everyone of these POS to jail. Something needs to change. They acting just like Nazi stormtroopers. I’m not anti cop. But everyone that does sht like this and the others that see it and say nothing needs to be locked up. As an accessory and the ines who do it get football numbers. It’s the only way these corrupt fuks gonna learn. They way to comfortable with their power.

Agreed. I’m not of the ACAB mentality. I grew up with good people who became good cops. They exist. But they don’t get headlines for doing their jobs.

The more we take these sh*theads off the street, the more we can work to repairing public relations and creating a safer world and rebuilding trust.

Unfortunately I think the job inherently attracts bad people hungry for power and vengeance. Hopefully as time goes on we can develop a system to weed them out or at least break down the blue wall of silence.

I think we’ve been making some significant progress compared to what we were seeing even just 5 years ago.

He aint gonna do no time. They will say it is a stressful job and it got to him. They will just let him go with pension for the rest of his life. The state (taxpayers) will ultimately pay whatever the settlement amount is. and Life goes on...

Telling the cop he needs to call his mom is strange behavior?

I’ve worked for prosecutors during my breaks during law school but I’m more interested in defense until I can get into one of those divisions.

There are “police accountability” divisions popping up in state AG and prosecutor’s offices I’ve applied to a few in Chicago and DC. So you specifically handle criminal violations by cops.
