The police then attempt to force the man to walk and believe he's resisting arrest when his legs won't work.

The video was just released of an elderly grandfather being slammed to the ground so hard by an Alabama police officer that it severed his vertebra and paralyzed the man. As you will see in the video, the police then attempt to force the man to walk and believe he's resisting arrest when his legs won't work – not knowing that they broke his neck.

It's despicable.

According to AL.com,

Madison police officer Eric Parker today turned himself in to face assault charges, following the severe injuries to an Indian citizen who was walking down the street outside his son's new home.

Chief Larry Muncey told a small press conference in Madison that he also recommended that Parker be fired for his use of force against a man who committed no crime, did not speak English and could not understand the commands. Below is the mugshot of Officer Eric Parker after he turned himself in to police.

Muncey said “I found that Officer Eric Parker's actions did not meet the high standards and expectations of the Madison City Police Department.”

While this response from police to fire and charge the officer with a crime seems so obvious, it's a rare occurrence and certainly supports the push for mandatory cameras on police cars and officers. Without one, in this case, nothing would've ever happened.
