US cop fired for 'pinning, punching' black man

Washington, Sep 14 (TIWN) A police officer in the US state of Georgia has been fired after footage emerged of him pinning an African-American man to the ground and punching him as the latter reportedly refused to show his ID, the media reported on Monday.

The incident took place on September 11 near the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport when the victim, Roderick Walker, 26, his girlfriend, their five-month-old child and his step-son were riding in a Lyft cab when two Clayton County Sheriff deputies pulled the car over for a broken taillight, the BBC reported.
