How is this Beating of Matt Mitchell by a Chillcothe Police Officer not Excessive Force?

The man in this picture is currently in the hospital after he was slammed onto the ground backwards and knocked unconscious by a Chillicothe police officer while the man was already subdued and in handcuffs.

The Chillicothe Law Director says everything that happened was “within policy” and no excessive force was used.

Watch the video below and decide for yourself if you think this was “excessive” or not.

Matt Mitchell was arrested early Saturday morning after an officer says he found Mitchell apparently drunk and urinating on a Downtown building.

Wednesday, 10tv showed you how Matt Mitchell’s weekend encounter with Chillicothe police ended: with him unconscious, airlifted to a Columbus hospital.

Now we know how it began: with a belligerent Mitchell cuffed in the back of a Chillicothe Police cruiser, swearing at the officer who arrested him, and the officer responding in kind.

Their exchange was captured on cruiser camera.

Mitchell: “Shut the (expletive) up. Nobody wants to talk to you.”

Officer: “Well then quit running your mouth and you won’t have to hear mine.”

Mitchell: “Shut up!”

Officer: “(Expletive) you.”

At the Ross County Jail, their taunting of each other continues.

Mitchell: “Let me get this (expletive) door. I mean, you want me to come out this door?”

Officer: “Bud, if you don’t calm the (expletive) down, it’s gonna go real bad for you.”

Officer: “Hop on out, (expletive).”

Mitchell: “What?”

Officer: “Get out of the car, (expletive). Don’t make me tell you twice. Now if not, I’m gonna (expletive) start dragging.”

Mitchell: “You grab ahold of me like you’re (expletive) hardcore dude.”

The officer drags Mitchell to the booking area of the jail.

Officer: “Do you want to be on the ground? Huh? Do you want to be on the ground?

Mitchell: “You were dragging me”

Officer: “(Expletive) calm the (expletive) down or you’re going on the ground.”

Mitchell “You were dragging me.”

Officer: “What are you gonna do about it?”

Mitchell: “You won’t quit dragging me.”

Officer: “What are you gonna do about it?”

Mitchell: “I ain’t no (expletive).”

Officer: “Then quit acting like one.”

A moment later, the officer, seen struggling with Mitchell’s handcuffs, slams him to the ground.

Officer: “I told you to quit (expletive) pulling away!”

A few seconds pass, and the officer seems to realize Mitchell is unconscious, and calls for an ambulance.


So I guess that’s somehow deserving of being slammed backwards into the ground so hard (WHILE IN HANDCUFFS and surrounded by officers) that you get knocked unconscious and might have brain damage because of it that could impact your ability to live your life for the rest of it?

Stories like the one above happen with such frequency in this country now, that it is almost impossible for sites like ours and others to even keep up with them.

And if trends continue, along with the further militarization of our police, these stories are only going to become more and more frequent.

America the police state. What a sad testament to the state of our nation.
