Georgia Deputy Fired Over Latest Brutal Police Video

Walker, 26, was arrested and beaten after deputies stopped the vehicle he was riding in on Friday with his girlfriend, their five-month-old child and his stepson allegedly over a broken taillight, said his attorney, Shean Williams of The Cochran Firm in Atlanta. When a deputy asked for his identification, he refused - "like every American citizen has the right to do", Williams said.

"They became upset when he asked, 'Why are you asking for my ID? He did nothing wrong", ABC News quoted his mother Tywauna C. Walker as saying during a news conference in front of the Clayton County Jail on September 12, 2020.

Passenger Roderick Walker, 26, was asked to show his identification, which he questioned as he was not the driver, at which point the deputies asked him to exit the auto.

The disturbingly violent encounter was captured by at least two people nearby. Walker also held his knee to the man's neck. Walker can be heard saying "I can't breathe" while appearing to gasp for air.

The distraught woman can then be heard screaming, "No!"

"I was just hurt because I wasn't there to protect him", Tywauna Walker said.

A deputy later punches the man repeatedly in the face, drawing blood.

One video recorded from a wider angle showed a little boy running around and panicking while Walker was being beaten by the police.

The now viral video shows a helpless Black man pleading with the enforcement to leave him alone, only to be smacked in the face by Walker who was in full uniform. An attorney for Walker said the incident quickly escalated after a ride-share vehicle Walker was a passenger in was pulled over for a routine traffic violation.

Walker received X-rays of his head, which detected no fractures, and is being monitored at the jail hospital by a doctor, the sheriff's office said.

ABC affiliate station WSB-TV in Atlanta obtained a photo of Walker in jail with a badly bruised and swollen left eye. "Walker would not be in jail if it were not for this unlawful arrest that violated his legal and constitutional rights".

"Unfortunately, Mr. Walker has a felony probation warrant out of Fulton County for Cruelty to Children, Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon, and a Failure to Appear warrant out of Hapeville which resulted in Magistrate Court denying him a bond", the statement read according to WMAZ. "Mr".

Williams, the sheriff's office and the Southern States Police Benevolent Association did not respond to requests for comment Sunday.

Referring to those cases, Gerald Griggs of the NAACP in Atlanta said Saturday that he and others are demanding that Walker be released but that they could be mourning his life.
