ALBAMA POLICEMAN INDICTED FOR HURTING AN INDIAN

Labels:
WASHINGTON: A US grand jury has indicted an Alabama police officer, captured on video throwing an Indian man to the ground, on a civil rights charge stemming from the use of unreasonable force, federal prosecutors said on Friday. 
Eric Parker, 26, then an officer with the Madison Police Department, was seen on video recorded from inside a patrol car on February 6 throwing Sureshbhai Patel, 57, to the ground after attempting to question him. 
Patel, who speaks no English and moved to northern Alabama from India about two weeks before the incident to help his son’s family care for a young child. He was badly injured, said his lawyer Henry Sherrod. 
Sherrod applauded the one-count indictment handed down late on Thursday, which charges that Parker acted under the colour of law to deny Patel’s civil rights, and which carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison.
In the following video footage a Madison police officer throws Sureshbhai Patel the ground paralyzing him. The officer was arrested  and was fired from the force following the violent confrontation.
