Madison police last week roughed up a 57-year-old Indian citizen who was walking on the sidewalk outside his son’s home, leaving the older man temporarily paralyzed and hospitalized with fused vertebrae.
“He was just walking on the sidewalk as he does all the time,” said his son, Chirag Patel, this morning. “They put him to the ground.”
But maybe not.
Madison police issued a statement on Monday saying they received a call early Friday about a man looking in garages among the brick homes just south of the city’s new high school.
“The caller, who lives in the neighborhood did not recognize the subject and thought him to be suspicious,” reads the statement released by police.
But Sureshbhai Patel does not speak English, this being only his second trip to the United States. He had arrived less than two weeks ago.
The statement by Madison police refers to a “communication barrier.” Chirag Patel said his father speaks only Gujarati, and some Hindi.
Sherrod says the Sureshbhai Patel told the police officers “no English” and repeated his son’s house number.
The police statement says the officer attempted to frisk the man.
“The subject began putting his hands in his pockets,” reads the police statement. “Officers attempted to pat the subject down and he attempted to pull away. The subject was forced to the ground, which resulted in injury.”
The family’s lawyer:
“This is broad daylight, walking down the street. There is nothing suspicious about Mr. Patel other than he has brown skin,” said Sherrod.
Good luck, cops.
Simple fact, as their own reporter Kay Campbell points out, they don’t care what the evidence shows. Madison is guilty and will be seen that way either way.
Note to Madison police: This incident has reached international levels. Just remember that. I’ve just been talking to some of my Indian friends and family (I’m so embarrassed and sad about this!). This is the take-down seen around the world, with or without the release of the recordings.

Many judges won’t let gay folks get married.
Tough on those judges, the gays don’t need them.
Is common-law marriage recognized in Alabama? If so, what is sufficient to constitute a common-law marriage in Alabama?
Yes. “A valid common-law marriage exists in Alabama when there is capacity to enter into a marriage, present agreement of consent to be husband and wife, public recognition of the existence of the marriage, and consummation.” Waller v. Waller, 567 So.2d 869 (Ala.Civ.App. 1990). See also, Hudson v. Hudson, 404 So.2d 82
(Ala.Civ.App. 1981), and Attorney General’s Opinion 1992-041.
A valid common law marriage exists when there is capacity to enter into a marriage, the man and woman must be at least 16 with legal parental consent and present agreement or consent to be husband and wife, public recognition of the existence of the marriage after 181 days, and consummation.
Apparently it must last 181 days…
Alabama is a common-law state.
Is Alabama a common law state or a community property state?
Alabama is a common law state.
A common-law marriage is recognized for federal tax purposes if it is recognized by the state where the taxpayers currently live, or in the state where the common-law marriage began. If the marriage is recognized under the law and customs of the state in which the marriage takes place (even if the state is a foreign country), the marriage is valid (Rev. Rul. 58-66). Practitioners should be alert to the specific state requirements necessary for their clients contemplating filing joint returns under common-law marriage statutes.
So there is that?
Is Kyle Whitmire gay? What about John Archibald? Chuck Dean? Any of AL.com’s army of gay marriage reporters?
This is a legit question now?
Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore has ordered probate judges throughout the state to deny same-sex couples marriage licenses despite a federal court’s decision.
So, there’s only one question left.
Is he a gay?
I’m sorry, but think about it. No really. At least Google it. How many politicians who have stomped their feet over this issue turned out to be … sexually bipartisan? There have been many.
What’s one Moore?
That’s right you can’t oppose gay marriage (which I don’t) without being gay.
Let’s flip it on it’s head:
AL.com has brought us story after story, covering ever possible angle, on the issue of gay marriage.
Do they have a rooting interest?
So every gay marriage story I see at AL.com today will be followed by this tweet.
Are they GAY!?!?!?!?
Will they answer? Nope. Because the question is completely inappropriate.
There has got to be one adult at AL.com, where are they?
