Officer Fired after Violently Arresting a Man on his Own Porch for No Reason

City council members in Greensboro, North Carolina voted this week to strip the law enforcement credentials of a police officer who is accused of violently arresting a man sitting on his porch after body camera footage of the arrest was made public.

The council pushed for criminal charges against Cole, but the district attorney refused, saying he wouldn’t “rehash the same evidence,” the Greensboro News & Record reported.

Cole and another officer approached Yourse’s house after they were dispatched to investigate a possible break-in on June 17.
