    Atlanta Police Officer Charged With Murder, Assault

    Marietta, Ga. -- After seven years on the force, Atlanta police officer John Freeman is in an unlikely spot?the Cobb County jail charged with murder.

    Investigators say he shot and killed an unarmed security guard at the apartment complex where Freeman lives with his wife and two children. It happened at 4:28am Saturday at the Ivy Ridge Apartments on Bentley Road.

    Cobb County police say 37-year-old Xavier Mallet of Marietta, Georgia, who provides security at the apartments, was banging on Freeman's front door. Freeman's wife answered the door and Mallet reportedly forced his way in. Authorities will not elaborate on what happened inside the home, but say Freeman's wife ran from the home followed by Mallet and Freeman. There was some sort of physical altercation and investigators say Freeman went back into his apartment, got his gun and shot and killed Mallet as he was leaving.

    Freeman made his first court appearance Saturday night, but had his attorney, Bruce Harvey, represent him in front of the judge. Two of Freeman's fellow officers watched the appearance and afterward Harvey insisted that once all the facts the charges should be dropped against his client.

    "You know Georgia has a 'stand your ground law' meaning that you can defend not just yourself, but your wife, your children, or even your property," said Harvey.

    Harvey says Freeman has been placed on paid administrative leave and the Atlanta Police Department says it is cooperating fully with Cobb County investigators and, at the same time, is conducting it's own internal investigation.

    Only thing I dont understand/agree with is shooting someone as they are fleeing.

    Why put yourself through all the trouble of trying to prove a good shoot when the danger is not imminent? The suspect is leaving, he is going away, the danger is gone, the police have already been called, you know specifically who the guy is, let him go and let the cops pick him up. Why shoot the guy and then hope you can prove you're justified?

    I dont know how GA law is written, but most of the time, shooting a fleeing suspect is not justifiable.

    If someone raped my wife, they're going to get shot in the back, the front, the side, and all other which ways.

    He didn't rape the wife but sounds like that was his intention if you watch the video in post 3.
