A traffic stop turned violent in Alabama when it is alleged Janard Shamar Cunningham attacked the officer who pulled him over, pistol-whipping him unconscious before fleeing the scene.
Cunningham, who has a long rap sheet with six convictions dating back to 1999, was later arrested and charged in the crime. But the real story here is the social media reaction.
After the officer, a detective, was beaten unconscious, a picture of him laying face down on the group was posted to Facebook. The caption read, “Pistol whipped his ass to sleep” with several emoticons of laughing to tears and skulls, presumably implying death. It also included the hashtag #FckDaPolice.
