A Mississippi Police Officer has been fired after video of him body slamming and slapping a handcuffed suspect began circulating on social media recently.
At a press conference on Friday, Greenville Mayor Erick Simmons and Greenville Police Chief Delando Wilson made the announcement that the officer was being terminated.
“Greenville Police Department has some great police officers,” Chief Wilson said. “They are dedicated to protecting the city and its citizens and this incident is not indicative of our behavior and culture at Greenville Police Department.”
The man that was slammed, identified as Richard Miller, was allegedly shot during a domestic disturbance call.
