Re: Alabama Police throw Indian Grandfather to the ground and paralysed him,..

Can it be that he did a PK in front of the police van,just to see how the police lock-ups are there.

Hope he recovers soon.

Re: Alabama Police throw Indian Grandfather to the ground and paralysed him,..

Desi NRIs collected a lot of money for Mr. Patel. but reading the following first thing I think of.. Miser gujju son didn't buy medical insurance for dear father? Are these the Patels in US we hear of, who send elderly parents to mall for whole day .. In order to save money on electricity at home.

Quote:
The community — and concerned American citizens — has now put its money where its mouth is, raising $125,588 (at the time of writing) for Patel's medical expenses against an initial target of $25,000 that was later raised to $100,000. From four anonymous donations of $1,000 each, people have contributed as little as $10 in an unprecedented show of support for Patel, who is said to be uninsured although he came to America on a green card by virtue of his son's citizenship.

That is a horrible mistake to make. Now he has to deal with two problems instead of just one.

I hope this guy recovers quickly.

Re: Alabama Police throw Indian Grandfather to the ground and paralysed him,..

I haven't read one report in India of someone getting beaten up by the police, for no other reason but walking on public footpath. So what was President of the US lecturing India for?

Are you sure racial discrimination and religious intolerance aren't 2 peels of same banana?

We have a case here of a brown old grandfather get beaten up for walking on the footpath in white neighborhood... by police no less.... racial discrimination.

You will find churches and mosques right smack in the middle of Hindu dominated areas... that is India for you, land of religious tolerance.

Has the racial angle been proven beyond doubt?

Poor thing though. So much assault!!

I used to scoff whenever my better half would question 'How many Indians' before checking on any place to move. But now, it makes all sense.

not this . It is going to be $$$$
The guys have messed with a Patel. His lawsuit is surely going to get him some good compensation.

You can get health insurance for some Rs 6000-7000 in India. But they pay it only after you get back and it could have a lot of gaps.

Re: Rough treatment of elderly NRI leaves him paralyzed

The way the cop put him down with precision appeared very professional and intended to cause him the that damage, neither more nor less.

I am somebody who will talk to a passerby, whoever it may be, looking in my garage before calling the cops. Just plain talk.. how are you, can I help you, are you trying to solicit? I go speak to neighbors making noise (unless they are fighting of course) before I call anybody (cops/apartment office).

Your wife is wise.. also the reason why desis stay in predominantly white neighborhoods.

Watch this video.. 10 minutes long, clears up quite a few things not everything though. What happens is cops stop him to question, but he keeps walking, unable to speak english, only says India. He keeps walking and this to an american cop is disrespect and not obeying the orders. Although him not understanding English should have rung a bell.

Entire video of Alabama police throwing Indian grandfather to the ground

lesson for everyone else. If your visitors do not speak a word of English, then take some time and give them a small note mentioning the address and phone number of the residence.

Well, the old man was surprised so couldn't break his fall with his arms and hands.

Anyway, I was avoiding bringing up the big $$$ coming, but sgars said it.

For first timers a small talk about do and don'ts and teaching some basic culture difference things should be done.

Desis generally tend to take everything as granted and 'chalta hai'.. we start playing golf without lessons, we go to a country without knowing the least about it. Most of the world reads books about the foreign country they are going to visit.

Re: Rough treatment of elderly NRI leaves him paralyzed

The Cop did act stupid and with excessive force. No doubt about it. THe police department is going to pay a lot of money to Chirag Patel but this in no way takes away the pain of having a paralyzed Grandpa. No one to blame here but the cops. Now racist or not is a different issue. What if the man was mentally retarded white guy as in Kelly Thomas . We call it racist only because he was Indian. This was more of a power trip.....

Now, good side of this. Everyone is this country is answerable. Yes, there are ass-holes everywhere including America . So those idiot who are gloating over and saying " See this is why I dont go to America " . Ask your self , when you get a lathi no your ass by a pandu , can you file a lawsuit and have that pandu suspended ?

How many Indian police officers have been fired to excessive force on common public ......zero...
