Unarmed grandfather who cannot speak English, left partially paralyzed after being beaten by police.

Mr. Patel, a grandfather visiting his family from India, was taking a morning stroll in his son’s suburban neighborhood. A white neighbor called police stating that a “real skinny Black guy” was walking around.

Mr. Patel who could neither speak or understand English, was unarmed, did not resist police, and video confirms that the officers discussed how Patel did not understand English at all. As you will see from the video, the police officers actions were brutal and inexcusable.

Mr. Patel has been left partially paralyzed.  The police officer responsible for beating Patel, Eric Parker, has been arrested and is being fired after Indian officials demanded action from the United States.

Thank you to the Indian government for pressing this issue to justice, and a nod goes out to Madison, Alabama for taking the appropriate measures.

Your Advocate,

M. Kita Williams
