A Columbus, Ohio police officer was relieved of duty after body camera video emerged where he is heard commenting about the violent arrest of Timothy Davis in Columbus on September 1st such as: “What did we tase him for? Why didn’t we just choke the f*cking life out of him?”
Columbus Mayor Andrew Ginther released a statement Wednesday afternoon: "I have reviewed the body-worn camera video, and I am incredibly bothered by the words of the officer in question. I strongly support Chief Jacob’s decision to remove the officer from duty. This is unacceptable behavior for Columbus police officers".
