VIDEO: Ga. Deputies Probed for Home Entry

DeKalb County (Ga.) Sheriff's deputies are facing an internal investigation for an aggressive arrest after entering a family's home at 2 a.m. July 26.

The agency has launched an investigation of one sergeant and seven deputies, even though a spokesperson told Fox News the video doesn't show police doing anything unlawful.

Donovan Hall and his mother, Natania Griffin, posted video of the encounter, which they say shows a "living nightmare." The video shows deputies banging on their door, nearly knocking it down, ordering them to open up.

The deputies went to the house because they had a civil warrant for the arrest of Natania Griffin, reports WSB-TV.

That's some fine police work there, Lou & Eddie.

Can't wait for the comments that begin,"well I wasn't there so I'm going to give the officers the benefit of the doubt.

"POLICE Magazine does not tolerate comments that include profanity, personal attacks or antisocial behavior." But it does apparently tolerate police that use profanity, personal attacks and antisocial behavior! Sheesh! The mouths on these guys! Not to mention the blatant lying and abuse of authority. Every one of these officers needs to be terminated.

If this really happened, this will be some bad stuff for these cops...I bet the lawyers are standing in line to file a civil rights lawsuit! Cops get a bad rap, and this is the reason why...fireman are the heros, because they don't act like these guys!

How often are firemen going into a call where you do not know what danger is on the other side other than fire. I have been involved and know a few cops that have saved people in fires and never received a complaint. Someone has to go to jail guess what they are going to complain.

We did not have time for the heroes to show up they were still in bed asleep.

If they would have opened the door, the whole incident could have been avoided. It appears these two were uneducated and brought the whole problem on themselves. The officers should have kicked in the door. Good work guys.

Instead of opening the door and telling the cops it's the wrong house they smelled a payday and grabbed the video camera. Looking for that KNEEGROW lottery money
