Jacksonville NAACP Leader Claims Police Brutality

Local NAACP President Isaiah Rumlin has his arm in a sling and a sore shoulder, and he says the excessive force of a Jacksonville sheriff's officer is to blame. The civil rights leader says he was a victim of an abusive officer who wouldn't let him check on his insurance business after Thursday's tornado tore through Northwest Jacksonville. His business was located just inside the police perimeter. "He turned me around, slammed me. My face would've went right through this side window," explained Rumlin, pointing out where the alleged incident took place. "All I was doing was trying to get to my office." Rumlin's claims are now being investigated. [more ]
