On Oct. 6, the 12-year-old Corey Jackson known as rapper Corey J. has been arrested for selling CDs at Georgia mall. Both the kid and his aunt were arrested with four charges.
The video of the incident appeared on the Instagram account of Corey J three days ago. In the film, you can see how the boy tries to get free of the policeman holding his arm while the aunt captures it on camera. They have been arrested for felony obstruction, misdemeanor obstruction, criminal trespass, and disorderly conduct.
The policeman’s action is severely disapproved by the boy but emphatically states that not all police officers are bad, but this policeman is one of them who do not deserve the uniform, Corey J describes in the Instagram post.
“All Police is not bad, a lot are good friends of mines, —says Coley J.
“But it’s some of you that do not deserve to be in a Police uniform & this guy is clearly 1, —he continued

Cobb County police is aware of the anger on the internet. Chief Mike Register responds to all questions and explains.
Regardless this is not about a complicated case, it is claimed that an internal investigation is ongoing. The policeman is still in service.
