ATLANTA — A college student dragged from a car by Atlanta police when she and her boyfriend were caught in traffic caused by a protest over the death of George Floyd said she feared the officers would kill them.

Dramatic body-camera video released by police shows a group of officers shouting orders, smashing the driver’s side window, deploying stun guns and pulling Pilgrim and Messiah Young from the sedan. Throughout, the couple can be heard screaming and asking officers what is happening.

The article goes on to state the following:

Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms said at a news conference Sunday after reviewing body camera footage that she and police Chief Erika Shields decided to immediately fire two of the officers involved and place three others on desk duty pending investigation.

“Use of excessive force is never acceptable,” said Bottoms, while Shields said the footage was “really shocking to watch.”

“I still can’t even process what happened,” said Pilgrim on Monday. “We felt like we were going to die in that car.”
