Georgia, again

The news is out: [The Savannah Police Department announced Wednesday that it terminated two of its officers following a three-month investigation into excessive force used in an arrest.
District Attorney Meg Heap told reporters at a news conference that she will call for a grand jury in September to look into the April incident involving Corporal Daniel Kang and Sergeant Octavio Arango. Heap, Savannah Police Department Chief Roy Minter and Mayor Van R. Johnson did not disclose specific details about the incident — which was caught on body cameras — but they did say excessive force was used during a warrant sweep on a suspect who, ultimately, was misidentified.
“Based on my review of the internal investigation and the video, I believe that the conduct of the two members of the Savannah Police Department during this particular incident was totally unacceptable and egregious behavior on their part,” Minter said at the news conference.]

No repercussion other than changing job, to another department.
