The warning comes after a Black man sues the Eastpointe, Michigan police of severely beating him.
A black Michigan man has filed suit against local police after they tied him to a chair and beat him so severely that he permanently lost his vision in one eye. According to reports, Frankie Taylor was arrested on a DUI charge in August of 2015. He was being processed by officers in the Eastepointe Police Department outside of Detroit when he was restrained in a chair by several officers, and struck repeatedly as he cried out in pain before eventually falling unconscious.
Luckily for Taylor, camera’s caught the entire brutal incident on video. He told reporters, “The guy hit me so many times, it made me cry once I seen the tape I was knocked out.” In the clip, one officer yells “stop resisting” and “If you keep acting like a child, you’re going to get strapped in that chair and you’re going to stay there” as he continued to hit Taylor profusely.
Reports say that Taylor was not given medical attention following the beating, and was instead booked into the county jail. He was eventually admitted to a hospital, where he underwent surgery for injuries to his eye. Jim Rasor, the victim’s attorney, claims Taylor is now suffering from permanent vision loss in one eye ans partial vision loss in the other eye. He is suing the Eastpointe police, as well as the officers involved in the arrest.
