VIDEO: Leonard Allan Cure choked a deputy police officer during stop for reckless driving after being awarded $817K

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Leonard Allan Cure choked deputy police officer during stop for reckless driving.

Leonard Allan Cure spent more than 16 years imprisoned in Florida on a wrongful conviction, fighting relentlessly for his release before he was finally freed three years ago. On Monday, he was killed by a Georgia sheriff during a traffic stop on his way home from visiting his mother.

Cure, who was Black, was pulled over in Camden County near the Florida border by a sheriff's deputy at about 7:30 a.m., according to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. The agency is conducting an independent probe into the fatal shooting by the officer.

"It is god awful that he would escape that injustice to have his life claimed by more bias," civil rights attorney Ben Crump, who is representing Cure's family, said at a Wednesday news conference.

"Just because you're Black should not be the determining factor whether you get a death sentence for a traffic stop," he added.

The two began scuffling before Cure ends up on the ground and was ultimately shot by the deputy.

The Black man was compliant until he was told he was under arrest, according to a Georgia Bureau of Investigation statement.

Citing preliminary information, the GBI said the deputy tased Cure after he didn't obey the officer's commands, Cure assaulted the deputy, and the deputy then used the Taser a second time, along with a baton, before pulling out his gun and shooting him.

As Cure, wearing a tank top exited his pickup, he addressed the deputy: "I ain't doing (expletive)."

The two exchanged words before Cure went to the back of his truck and put his hands on the back of the pickup before the deputy told him he would tase him for speeding and reckless driving.
