(Louisville, KY) - The Louisville Urban League and some community leaders are calling for the officers involved in the forceful arrest of a black motorist in west Louisville to be fired.
Cellphone video showed Louisville Metro Police officers pulling Jarrus Ransom from an SUV and punching him repeatedly earlier this month.
Police say Ransom lunged at them and tried to destroy pills found in his SUV.
Members of the Urban League are questioning why that type of force is only used in minority communities.
