Atlanta, Georgia — Atlanta police released body camera footage from officers tasing two college students during the protests in Atlanta. Two police officers have been fired and three others placed on desk duty over excessive use of force. Police identified the fired officers as Investigator Ivory Streeter, who was hired in December 2003, and Investigator Mark Gardner, who was hired in August 1997. Friends identified the two as 20-year-old Spelman College student Teniyah PilgrIm and 22-year-old Messiah Young, a graduate of Morehouse College. Pilgrim was detained and later released at the scene without charges. Young was taken to Grady hospital and released Sunday morning. He was initially charged with fleeing the scene and driving with an expired license, but the mayor later ordered those charges to be dropped.
