Photo reveals injuries suffered by a black man at the hands of white Mississippi deputies

A Mississippi civil rights lawyer says his black client was brutally beaten by white law enforcement officers during a traffic stop earlier this month, but a sheriff has hit back saying the man seemed to be high on drugs and resisted arrest.

Attorney Carlos Moore on Monday shared a graphic photo showing 28-year-old David Logan with his wrists restrained with handcuffs behind his back and blood streaming down his face and dripping onto his bare chest and blue shorts following his July 18 arrest.

According to Moore, his client walked away from officers but wasn’t running away at a police roadblock in northern Mississippi’s Yalobusha County.
