Once again law enforcement has been caught on tape allegedly brutalizing Black citizens, this time in Columbus, Ohio. A video was shared on social media that shows a group of Black residents being terrorized, and in at least one instance, assaulted by a well-known Black cop.

According to the Columbus Police Department, officers were responding to an alert from a ShotSpotter detection system. Jonathan Robinson, 25, was out with his small children and other family members when upon hearing gunfire, they went back inside their home for shelter. Soon officers responded to the Stanley Avenue neighborhood in force with weapons drawn. Robinson told NBC4, that to his surprise police came to his door and ordered everyone out of the home.
