Video shows Alabama police throwing grandfather from India to the ground

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.

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

Five members of the local Indian community sat in the front row, along with Indian Consul Anil Kumar, to watch from the patrol cars and listen to the led to the violent confrontation.
