The City of Greensbora has released bodycam video showing a police officer punch and arrest a man who was sitting on his front porch. Dejuan Yourse was waiting for his mother to come home at the time before he was approached by police. Officer Travice Cole and Charlotte Jackson were responding to a call of an attempted break-in. They begin a civil discussion with Dejuan, but the situation quickly escalates after Officer Cole grabs the man's phone before hitting and tackling him to the ground.

Two police investigations were launched into the incident, one criminal and one internal. Both officers resigned mid-investigation, however Mr. Yourse's family is calling for further repercussions. The police department has since determined that Officer Travice Cole violated the department's use of force policy, courtesy towards the public policy, arrest policy, search and seizure policy, and general compliance to laws and regulations. The investigation into the other officer's actions is still ongoing. The family is likely to sue for damages.




This situation illustrates some of the extreme complexities of being a cop, and more. Was the cop in his right at that point to grab the phone- because the dude could have been calling for assistance? If so, then why instead didn't the cop just tell him not to call anyone but his mother?

So then the dude resists, because the cop was taking his property, and the cop then tackles him and punches him in the eye for resisting.

I CHALLENGE EVERYONE TO TALK ABOUT THIS CASE WITHOUT MENTIONING RACE, AT ALL. Betcha can't. Who will be the first drive by poster to ruin it? ....

All I saw was an unprovoked attack on an innocent citizen.

I just wish we could focus on these real cases rather than championing criminals killed in the process of being criminals.

Resignation isn't enough.

Charges should be brought against the officers, just they would be against anyone else who behaved this way.

They should charge them with what they would have charged that man had he done the same thing.

Strong arm robbery and assault, kidnapping, false imprisonment, nevermind civil rights charges.

Trying to figure out the right course of action as an officer on this had to be tough. The use of force part was stupid. But who knows, that guy could have had a fight with his mother, and been trying to break in. He did live in a separate apt.

When the mother couldn't be reached, what then? The neighbors were an option, but the cops didn't want to check with them.

Yeah ok, we can leave race out... but I don't think we can leave 'class' out of the discussion, since it was clearly a significant factor in this incident.

I learnt a long time ago that police in general only respect a persons rights if they look like they can afford a lawyer to defend their rights...

I think the facts of the case speak for themselves on this one.

What happened to this young man was a violation of his civil rights.

GODDAMNIT! Police do things like this every day. They have been for years. Would have happened to me unless I slammed my own door.

They simply just DO this.

I don't think race had anything to do with what I went through. I grabbed my phone and tried to call my mother, who was an attorney. I got voicemail.
I told the police to get a warrant. They stated they would be annoyed if they had to go and get a warrant. This had to do with a boarder of mine, not me.
I told them to just go and get annoyed then. Police use that statement a lot to scare people.

LOL, imagine telling me that I should do something since if I did not you would get annoyed....LOL

It's a sad state of affairs when my first thought was well at least he survived. Another story of an idiot cop going too far.

The address on his ID was the address he was at? Are you kidding me?

Well it is vids like these that make the average citizen fear and loath cops ....that male cop was a retard, he must be one of the low IQ recruits we keep hearing about.....pretty sad state of affairs ...

Serious what a dumb #....i could feel my heart rate rising watching that...the dude that copped that rubbish on his mommas porch tolerated that quite well, had he not we would likely be arguing about the weapon that appears mysteriously that the cops planted after they shot him...

I would not have been so calm on my mother's porch. When my mother was alive.

No...I'm stating how stupid it is to arrest someone for breaking in, when the first piece of information you ask for says they live there...disbelief mostly...

Yes, he had an incredible amount of restraint.

One question...the video is not from the city of Greensboro and the text has no source. What is the source?

WOW!!

One of the officers was PROMOTED during the investigation

Triad city Beat


Greensboro Police Department records show that former Officer Travis B. Cole — who quit last month during investigations into his handling of an incident with Dejuan Yourse — was actually promoted while an internal investigation was ongoing.
