The Assault Of An Elderly Indian By American Cops Reeks Of Xenophobia

Not only is this outrageous on part of the police of a country that chest-thumps about human rights, it also reeks of xenophobia. Sureshbhai Patel (57) did not know English, and was unable to explain that he was walking on the footpath outside his son’s home in Madison, Alabama, when the cops swooped down on him following a report of a suspicious character in the neighbourhood.

The incident, which occurred last Friday, left Patel temporarily paralyzed and hospitalized for surgery. The FBI is now investigating the incident.
