Police Who Beat 15-Year Old Black Boy To Coma, Sentence To 20years In Jail
The non-white community has been alarmed about police brutalities against African-Americans with some recorded deaths.
Even more harrowing is seeing such rogue cops get away with zero or little punishment as if Black lives don’t matter.
But it has been good news for the African-American community when police officer, Matthew Johns was handed a 20-year sentence this week after he was indicted on eight felonies for beating 15-year-old Antraveious Payne in 2018.
Antraveious Payne’s mother said her son’s behavior changed for the worse and he started to experience chronic headaches after Johns attacked him.
Johns was indicted on eight felonies, including four counts of aggravated assault, two counts of violation of oath by an officer and two counts of giving false statement for repeatedly kicking and choking a 15-year-old boy until he was unconscious and then lying about it.
Johns pleaded guilty on July 10, and was sentenced on Monday to 20 years with five to serve in prison in connection with the 2016 incident reports TFTP.
Disturbing dashcam footage revealed Johns beating the Atlanta teenager even when he offered no resistance, but what made the police officer’s case even bizarre is that Matthew had road crash with his cruiser a few weeks prior and was barred from driving,
but managed to check out a vehicle and used it to ram another car, then beat the teen and lied about the entire ordeal.
