Free Thought Project – by Matt Agorist Columbus, OH —

A video uploaded to Facebook Monday night is going viral now,
after showing three police officers brutally attack an unarmed man
who was doing nothing but standing there.

The video, uploaded by  "">Mellena Jackson,
has over a half million views and is causing a firestorm of
blowback. According to Jackson, the man was upstairs interviewing
for a job when he was asked to come back later, but police
intervened and things got violent.  

“They said he was upstairs for an interview and they asked him
if he could come back tomorrow and he started rolling his
cigarettes up and the police asked him to leave. Maybe they could
have felt threatened by the fact his hands were in his pocket and
after watching the video I seen that he threw a cigarette after
they assaulted him,” Jackson wrote on Facebook.

Jackson, who explained that her 6-year-old son wanted to be a
police officer, noted that he saw this unfold as he walked out of
the hospital.

“Can’t have that as his image of a police officer/ security
guard because they aren’t all abusing their authority just like all
ppl aren’t criminals,” she wrote.

As the video begins, you can see three cops surrounding the man
who’s doing nothing but standing there with a hand in his pocket.
When he takes a step forward, he is then pushed back by a police
officer. Clearly feeling like he’s being oppressed, the man appears
to flick a cigarette in the direction of the officers — that’s when
all hell broke loose.

In the video, Jackson says she couldn’t believe what was going
on as the cops then jumped the man in a gang-style fashion after
senselessly spraying him in the face with mace.

When the video was published to her page, many people thought
these men were simply security guards. However, the men in the
video are OhioHealth Protective Service Officers — a
recognized police force able to carry weapons and with arrest

While the reason for the stop is not officially known at this
time, one potential cause for the attack could be that the man had
his hand in his pocket.

This type of reaction by police for someone having their hand in
their pocket is not uncommon. All too often, people with their
hands in their pockets cause police officers to “fear for their
lives,” thus provoking reactions like the one in the video

While it is unclear as to what this man had done to warrant
police action, in the video, we clearly see that he posed no threat
to officers, yet he was still attacked.

On Tuesday, OhioHealth released the
following statement:

“We are aware of the incident that happened at OhioHealth Grant
Medical Center last night and began investigating the matter

The three security officers involved have been placed on a
fact-finding suspension until the investigation is complete.

When a situation like this occurs we take it very seriously. We
anticipate providing more information about the investigation later

Below is the video Jackson posted online.

It contained the following description:

Dude did not flinch at them and or make them feel threatened in
no shape form nor fashion. Then flicked his cigarette at them which
made it worse. This shit is getting ridiculous. Sad thing is my son
seen this shit!!!! Then seen him laying there not moving… they left
him there in the 30 degree weather on the cold concrete without
getting him medical attention. Then one cop/security guard had his
hand on his gun while talking shit to my father. I swear to God I
am sick of this shit! Coward ass bitches with badges. From what I
witnessed the police officers involved used excessive force which
was not needed. With all that is going on with the
police/security officers and citizens, this unfolding in front of
my 6 year old is a hard pill to swallow.
 As you can
see he was not violent and or did not pose a threat! Why do
they abuse their authority? When will this stop? Why
do I have to explain to my son that all cops don’t use excessive
force and explain to him why this man was hit repeatedly for no
reason at all (He wants to be a police officer). This saddens
 We the people need answers! We fear
the police who are supposed to protect and serve yet they talk to
us all as if we are criminals and use their badge of law to
harm and/or kill us!

I’m wrong but this could have been handled another way.
