    Alabama Police Officer Indicted in Confrontation With Unarmed Indian Man

    Alabama Police Officer Indicted in Confrontation With Unarmed Indian Man

    ATLANTA — An Alabama police officer has been indicted by a federal grand jury, accused of using unreasonable force against an unarmed Indian man during an episode in which the officer slammed the man to the ground while he was on an early-morning stroll through his family’s suburban neighborhood.

    The Feb. 6 confrontation, which led to the partial paralysis of the man, Sureshbhai Patel, 57, has exported America’s national debate over the use of force by police officers as observers and news media in India expressed outrage over Mr. Patel’s treatment.
    Facing some serious charges.

    If the facts support the charges, I hope the officer is prosecuted to the fullest. I strongly support police and the difficult job they do, but there are people in every walk of life who go too far.

    My primary thought is that bad cops get busted pretty regularly but those that hate cops will look at this as confirmation that all cops are bad instead of that the system generally works.

    A good question would be what are your thoughts?

    Sterotyping a group of people because a few bad apples? You mean like all Republicans are racists, all Democrats are welfare lovers, all Hispanics are lazy and illegal, all blacks are good at playing basketball because the NBA is filled with blacks, all Asians are good in math, and all guys named crosscheck are hunks? Nah, we aren't like that............

    Wasn't there a thread on this and a video of the incident posted with it? If that is the incident, yes charges should be brought.

    Yes, I saw a video of this a few weeks back. Cops went way beyond the line.

    On the surface with few confirmed detail, does not look good. That said more information is needed. We only have a news report.

    The victim has partial paralysis from being violently thrown to the ground.

    There you go.
