A new video that has surfaced from Atlanta shows just how dark humans can be.
In the video a VA employee from Atlanta, Georgia is seen choking and slamming an elderly Vietnam veteran.
Veteran Phillip Webb,73, was reportedly attacked by VA employee Lawrence F. Gaillard Jr. at the Veterans Affairs Clinic at Fort McPherson in Atlanta.
The video was previously hidden from the general public until a FOIA request by reporter Justin Gray brought the video to light.

MSN had more on the story:
Disturbing video shows the moments a Veterans Affairs’ employee pushed an elderly Vietnam veteran into a door and body-slammed him to the ground.
Channel 2 Investigative Reporter Justin Gray first reported on the attack in May. Phillip Webb, 73, said he was attacked at the Department of Veterans Affairs Clinic at Fort McPherson in Atlanta on April 28.
Gray had to file a Freedom of Information Act request and wait more than a month and a half to get the surveillance video, which shows a VA patient advocate viscously hit and kick Webb.
VA employee Lawrence F. Gaillard Jr. was arrested and charged with the brutal beating.
On Monday, Gray showed Webb the video of the moment he was assaulted.
Webb said he doesn’t remember much about the attack.
The 73-year-old man was hospitalized for three days with a brain bleed. https://t.co/yhHigIXqmj
