A sheriff's deputy in Georgia has been fired after he was caught on video beating a Black man in front of his girlfriend and their children during a traffic stop.
26-year-old Roderick Walker was a passenger in a vehicle that was pulled over for having a broken tail light. Deputies asked for his identification and got upset when he questioned why they needed his ID when he wasn't driving. That's when deputies ordered him out of the car and placed him under arrest. Video shot by a bystander shows two officers on top of him while one repeatedly punched him in the head and face. Walker's girlfriend pleaded with officers to stop and a child could be heard yelling "daddy" from inside the car.
The deputy claims he punched Walker after he was bitten, which Walker denies. Walker was arrested and charged with suspicion of obstructing officers and battery. The deputy, who has not yet been identified, has been fired for "Excessive use of force." (ABC News)
