The Miami police department has a history of using violent and excessive deadly force against African Americans. Many African Americans had diedd at the hand of Miami police.
Miami police officers were caught on cellphone video punching and kicking a Black man in the Liberty City neighborhood on Sunday.
NiNi Milton, the woman who witnessed and recorded the attack on her cellphone, described it as yet another example of excessive use of force.
“He can’t breathe, he said he can’t breathe,” she can be heard saying in the recording of the arrest.
Police brutality is on the rise, as politicians and activists are unable to confront the reality that African American men and children are terrorized on daily basis. No other group of people will continue to tolerate this inhumane treatment in their own country. Many experts agree that the victim has every right to run for his life after he was beaten by policemen .. and according to Mr. Milton who recorded a video said he had to flee for his life.
Congresswoman Frederica Wilson responded to the rough arrest, saying in part “…this new allegation of police misconduct involving punching, kicking and a headlock…a thorough investigation is required and swift firings and punishment must follow.”
She also noted, “We will not allow our beautiful city to return to the day when Black men were viewed as caricatures, beaten, and murdered by the police. A thorough investigation is required and swift firings and punishments must follow.”
