Officer Phillip Tobin (pictured) is a marked man since the residents of Thomaston, Ga., rallied together Tuesday night, demanding that he be ousted from the police force for extreme acts of brutality, according to 11Alive News.

The townspeople reportedly took turns revealing the allegedly horrific stories of bully tactics and physical atrocities that were brought on by Tobin. The residents also called upon the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) and U.S. Attorney’s Office to not only investigate the allegations against the allegedly rogue cop but to take the town’s police department to task for keeping him employed for more than a decade despite the countless complaints brought up against him over the years.

The meeting was reportedly organized by the Thomaston Improvement Association and was attended by not only the town’s residents but by many prominent Atlanta-based civil rights activists, such as Georgia Sen. Vincent Fort and civil rights attorneys Albert A. Mitchell and Mawuli Mel Davis.

Residents offered compelling stories that even brought some to tears as they recounted their brushes with Tobin. One woman summoned police to help carry out a restraining order against her husband, but instead, she and her son were reportedly treated as criminals when Tobin arrived at her home. The officer allegedly held a gun to her son’s head with the barrel cocked, threatening to “blow his head off,” and the woman was ordered to be silent by Tobin.  “I was the victim,” the unnamed distraught woman revealed at the meeting, “He pulled a gun… I wasn’t trying to cause no trouble.”

Another man came forward to discuss how Tobin beat him unmercifully to the point of needing hospitalization — and it was allegedly done without provocation.

Tobin’s latest alleged incident, though, took place on June 11th and involves a man who was standing in front of a convenience store. Tobin reportedly thought the man was loitering and shot him with a taser. The officer alleges the man aggressively resisted him but a video tells another story of a compliant individual who actually put his hands up in the air.

According to 11Alive News, they claim to have obtained the Thomaston Police Department’s files on the complaints against Tobin and there were reportedly more than 600 pages to sift through.

The community’s main complaint against the police force is that their issues with Tobin have not been acted upon.

Now attorneys who attended the town meeting against Tobin could reportedly wind up pulling together a federal civil rights lawsuit against the officer, the police department, and the city states 11Alive News.

Meanwhile, Tobin is suspended with pay while the police department is forced to re-examine the countless complaints against him.  The GBI will also investigate Tobin’s latest incident involving his alleged use of a taser.

    Tobin is every white cop out their. This is the same shit as when they would hang us from the trees like christmas ornamients. BUt what else would you expect from the european apes. They would do this shit to their own of it wasn’t for us hanging in there and refusing to let them kill us off. I promise you if they ever got what they wanted and killed every black man in america they would just turn on themselves. They need the murder. They desire it like a child desires the love of his mother. Without the black man they would target red heads. Or irish or anyone who doesn’t look like them. That is the lagacy of the white race. Whoever is in the majority will punish whoever is in the minority.
    If a blacks were the majority in America then america would be a nice place. We would treat the white beast with a lot more respect than they treat us. Their would be far less violence. The world would be a better place.

      Seriously?! Yes, SOME caucasians have done wrong by us but their behavior does not excuse this man for the wrongs he has committed against his victims. You shouldn’t justify wrong with wrong.

    This little Napoleon complex having piece of crap needs to have his badge pulled permanently. That many people can’t be lying. Maybe the townspeople need to sue to make their point since it seems the police department hasn’t been listening. Only now they decide to put him on paid leave. Put a person’s feet to the fire and they sure shape up quick. I certainly hope he’s not married with children, because I can only imagine that his family goes through hell with him and his insecure behind. He was probably bullied growing up and couldn’t wait to get that badge so he could inflict payback on anyone he could. Loser.
