ATLANTA – “The recently released December 2017 video of the violent arrest of Desmond Marrow by Henry County law enforcement is extremely disturbing,” stated Andrea Young, Executive Director of the ACLU of Georgia. “The behavior of the officers reinforces the perception that it is dangerous for African- Americans to interact with law enforcement. The ACLU of Georgia is calling on Henry County officials to convene a public meeting  to hear and address immediately the community’s concerns.”
