This video was posted by a family who says that they were terrified when Georgia DeKalb Sheriff deputies came to their home around 1:30 am and virtually tore down their door. It turns out that this is all about an unpaid civil fine by the mother, Natania Griffin, who was 15 days late in paying $1,000. What is notable is the deputy repeatedly threatening the man while referring to his videotaping them.
It is worth noting that the family did not open the door for an hour and the Department insists that it had a valid warrant for the mother for the unpaid civil fine.
The raid occurred on July 26th and the 19-minute video was taken by 23-year-old Donovan Hall, who posted it on YouTube.
The family says that they were pistol-whipped and kicked and that one officer stood on Hall’s head.
Sheriff Thomas Brown insists that his officers acted appropriately even though he is “disgusted” that they used.
Warning this video includes graphic language and scenes.
