A stunning incident of police brutality in Paris, Texas, was caught on tape and has led to ramifications.
Cornelius Gill was slammed up against a car in the town about 90 miles northeast of Dallas, and his friend was grappled alongside him.
Gill said of the incident: "It really hurt. I couldn't breathe or anything. I just couldn't believe he would do [that to] somebody like that."
Paris Police Chief Bob Hundley admitted that "the emotions and frustration got a little out of line" and said the department takes allegations of police abuse seriously. The officer involved was suspended for two days without pay.
Paris, Texas, was also the sight of state police breaking up outbreaks of racial riots a year ago.
