Late Saturday night, a video emerged of an arrest in progress between a young man and the Tallahassee Police Department in the All Saints Neighborhood.
The video shows a male TPD officer slamming a young man on his head on the pavement in the All Saints neighborhood.
It is unlikely that the officers “wrestling move inspired” suplex maneuver is an approved Tallahassee Police Department technique.

“Wrestling move?” A more accurate description would be that they yanked a non-resisting kid off his feet & threw him down on his head.
I wonder how often police have killed or severly injured a citizen with this move?
And then the police wonder why we distrust them. City residents, these are your tax dollars at work. I hope the kid gets a good lawyer. Can you say Christina West? That lawsuit cost the city $475,000 eight years ago. I’m guessing this one will cost more.
His Head was NOT slammed on the concrete. Actually look at the Video and don’t listen to the idiot Girls. His Head NEVER touched the ground UNTIL they rolled him over.
His Head NEVER touched the Concrete until the Officer rolls him over and HE lays his head down. Watch the Video, watch his Head the WHOLE time.
David T. Hawkins, even if you are correct in your observation, would you say this ‘attempt’ to drop this citizen on his head was an appropriate maneuver during this arrest, especially from what looks like full cooperation from the person being arrested?
The police action seems excessive.
