Asa Hutchinson (the State Governor) responded to the incident by saying that they would investigate it. According to Asa Hutchinson, he spoke with Col. Bill Bryant from the Arkansas State Police. The Crawford County arrest will be investigated according to video evidence and at the request of the prosecuting lawyer.
A similar sentiment was expressed by Mulberry Police Department in a Facebook post. Crawford County Sheriff posted on Facebook that he would take seriously any accusations made against officers. On Sunday, an official investigation was launched. Authorities are still investigating the matter and have not made the names of the officers public. There are many other instances of police brutality that have been reported in the media, in addition to the Arkansas beating.
The topic has been particularly divisive since the assassination on May 25, 2020, of George Floyd, which sparked violent nationwide protests. According to PNAS, police brutality is one the leading causes of death among minority men. It disproportionately affects young African American men. One African American man is shot and killed in America every 1000, according to the study. At greater risk are only those between 20 and 35 years old.
