After viral claims of police brutality were posted to Facebook, the Rainbow City Police Department released body camera footage which exposed all of the claims to be a lie.

The post read: ďRainbow city beat him half to death and pushed him off a bridge,Ē posting images of the injured man. ďThe people who are supposed to serve and protect. Heís trying to talk but his whole front row of teeth are knocked out, he had to have his tongue sewed back together and his femur bone is broken he has to have surgery on it.Ē

The incident which prompted the post started on Thursday night at around 8:40 PM. An officer stopped a female driver for not having a working taillight, according to Birmingham News.

The male passenger in the vehicle appeared nervous and when asked, he gave the officer his name and date of birth. The man stated that he didnít have an Alabama driverís license. The officer conducted a record check on the given name and got no response.

When the officer returned to question the man about his name, the man produced an Alabama driverís license, but the picture didnít appear to match. He gave the officer an excuse, saying he lost a lot of weight in jail.

Finally, the officer separated the driver from the passenger and asked her about the manís identity. She provided his real name, and a records check showed that he had multiple felony and misdemeanor warrants.

When the officer went to re-contact the man, he took off running and leaped over a barrier, falling 19 feet on the other side

Whoever posted the false claim should be prosecuted and sued for slander. Unless and until false accusers receive the same consequences their targets would have received, false accusations will proliferate.
