Only in Atlanta...


ATLANTA -- Brandon Young of Norcross says he will never forget what happened to him last Tuesday inside a room at the Georgia World Congress Center.
Young, a former convention center employee, told Channel 2 Action News reporter Eric Philips that an officer with the Georgia World Congress Center Police Department crossed the line by inquiring about his sexuality and forcing Young to perform sexual acts while Young was being questioned on suspicion of having a stolen cell phone in his possession.

“I really didn't know what to think, because for one, I was never prepped on anything like that as far as an officer coming on to me,” said Young, who told the officer he was bisexual when questioned.

Young said the officer indicated that if he complied, he would not go to jail.

"It happened so fast it was like very disturbing, going to jail over something you didn't know about," said Young.

Young's attorney, Michael Harper, said his client has DNA evidence and text messages that implicate the officer. Harper also said medical tests showed Young tested positive for oral gonorrhea from the incident.

“The question is if you say no, what will happen, and that's a result he [Young] didn't want to take, so he complied with the officer's request,” said Harper.
Young is set to file a $5 million lawsuit against the state because of the alleged sexual assault.

The officer in question has resigned from the Georgia World Congress Center. Convention center officials said they will not comment, nor would officials with the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office because the investigation is ongoing.
“It plays, it constantly plays over again in my head,” said Young.

Ok. I understand being afraid of law enforcement officers, but I'm not sucking anyone's penis unless I choose to. I'd rather go to jail for a few hours than contract an STD (let's hope gonorrhea is all he contracted). It couldn't have been me.

being scared of going to jail over a cell phone that you know you didnt take or sucking some random dude off...

its hard to say what you would do until you are in that situation but this just doesnt sound right to me.

(gasp) that's horrible.

the police guy should be ashamed of himself, using his power like that in an unlawful and immoral way.

poor guy, and he also ended up with an STD.

@ above anon comment, maybe they swabbed his mouth with a cotton bud or something

text messages? where did those come from! He was texting ol' cop while sucking his peepee? Hrmm..... this is some shady stuff.

Hmm, saving the DNA evidence is really quite easy, look at Monica Lewinsky. You just have to spit the shit out and catch some of it on your shirt. But I'll admit getting text messages from your alledged assailent is kind of a shady story that's missing something.

That is a quite a mess!!! ALL THE WAY AROUND!

Q said...

Curious, you are dumb...lol. There is definitely more to this story. I'm sure the officer was beat as hell, and homeboy couldn't see not slobbing his knob down!

LoL. Oh lord Atlanta. ROTF. I agree with those that have said there is DEFINITELY more to this tale...

~Damnit!

JB said...

I think things only got sour when he tested positive for the STD. He gotta blame somebody for that...lol

MANDIVA said...

is he coming out about the story because he tested positive for the std? if he never tested positive would we be hearing about this story? what did the text messages say? and who is the damn officer?

some facts comoing to light in the case
1)no report has been filled with the Atlanta Police Department or with theFulton County District Attornies Office

2)NO Incident report has been filed with the State of Georgia WCU which oversees security at the Worls Congress Center

3)the office in question resigned and now faces the emabarassment that comes with the lawsuit as well as being "outed" to his family.

4)the relationship from a source was consenual and on more then one occasion and until the officer is tested the STD could have come from one of his other partners in the street. Only after Brandon Young was fired did this come to light.

5) Eric Philips with further investigation would have brought this to light including several "suits" and accusations Brandon has made on other jobs to the EEOC.(all public record)

6)Trying to get the officer to come forward with his side of the story but firsat he needs to come-out to family and freinds

I agree that something just doesn't sound right about this story.

I gotta chime in with all of the previous posts. Something is rather weird about the entire ordeal. The officer would have clearly had to put a gun to my temple...

As a person that has been in Law Enforcement for over 20 years...Things like this happens and more and it is not forced. Most time it is offered...Trust me...I know.
