REPORT: Phoenix pastor to teach on police brutality following video of officers beating man


As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by AZCENTRAL.COM:

Andre Miller, the pastor who sent the video showing officers beating a man to the ground to the Mesa Police Chief, will hold a Sunday sermon on police brutality. While the video has sparked national debate as well as protests in Mesa, Miller, a pastor at New Beginnings Christian Church in Mesa, said he plans on preaching a message appealing to humanity on Sunday.

“Jesus speaks to hope and love, loving our fellow man,” Miller said. “At the end of the day, none of this is being done to vilify police officers. It’s being done to highlight a problem that disrupts the harmony of humanity.”

The article goes on to state the following:

A video that showed Mesa officers punching and kneeing Robert Johnson was released by Mesa Police Chief Ramon Batista after Miller made Batista aware of the incident. The night of the incident, May 23, Johnson was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct and hindering police.

Responding to the firestorm over the officers’ actions captured on video, Batista changed the department’s use-of-force policy.
