A cop in Spotsylvania County, VA was forced to resign after footage emerged of him dangerously slamming a handcuffed man into the concrete face-first.
The officer, David Schmindt Jr.,resigned from the County Sheriff’s Office after charges of misdemeanor assault and battery were brought against him.
The man in the video, Nathan Barton, was being arrested for public intoxication. When he initially resisted arrest, Schmindt was called in as back up.
When Barton said to the officer “Don’t fucking handle me like that,” the cop lost it and slammed him to the ground, knocking him out cold. He is lucky to be alive.
Schmindt’s use of excessive force was described as a violation of policy and found to be inappropriate by the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office.
As InfoWars has noted, there have recently been a number of disturbing cases of exactly this type of force being used by police across the country.
Indeed, there are so many cases of this type of take down occurring, often when the subject is handcuffed, some ending in paralysis or even death. It is clear that cops are being trained to deal with subjects in this manner.
