Today, a tape was released from the Alabama District Attorney’s Office which shows the Birmingham Police beating a man after he has been ejected from his vehicle after a 50-mile car chase.
The police in this case has been fired. Kudos to Birmingham Mayor Larry Langford for reacting swiftly. He appeared on CNN today and declared that the city’s police is not what it was of the 1960s. The dramatic video is below. Isn’t it time that we better train our officers to handle situations as these?
