#AdamTatum – surveillance video from the Salvation Army Halfway House in Chattanooga, Tennessee A
June 14, 2012, surveillance video from the Salvation Army Halfway House in Chattanooga, Tennessee After Adam Tatum refused to urinate for a drug screen, police officers Adam Cooley and Sean Emmer brutality fractured Adam Tatum’s legs.
Later, both officers claimed Adam Tatum became unruly, pulling a knife on staff. A familiar narrative or story, repeatedly and successfully used by police officers to justify excessive use of force. Excessive use of force that is tantamount to torture. Watch as these police officers whip this man as if he were a savage animal resisting arrest.

Adam Tatum “legs were fractured (the same legs the officers are seen dragging him around on the floor with); with 6 fractures to his right leg and 2 to his left, one of which is a compound fracture (in other words a bone in his left leg had pierced through his outer skin tissue). Officers Cooley and Emmer were eventually terminated in early March, 2013″ (1)
