RINGGOLD, LA (KSLA) - "He's doesn't care, he's just a sick minded person." Dozens of Ringgold residents like Herman Leamette, packed into Ringgold Elementary Thursday night to voice their concerns of over Ringgold Police Officer Michael Rimski. "This guy had surrendered to him and he, tased him the guy had already surrendered."
Residents say Rimski who is the only white officer on the Ringgold Police Department, uses excessive force against members of the African American community, and after months of the harassment, they say it's time for Rimski to go. "People are kinda afraid of him, cause they're scared they're gonna get tased." Rimski attended the meeting, but says he didn't know anything about the residents speaking out against his alleged actions.
