A video shows a cop tasering a 14-year-old Pennsylvania girl in the groin seconds after she put her hands up. The video has been released as part of a lawsuit the girl is filing against the city.
The video shows the cop slamming her up against the car, then her raising her arms up to surrender moments before he fires the taser at her groin.
The cop claims she was resisting and had elbowed him in the chin. He claims he aimed that low because she was using her backpack to block her body, but the video clearly shows that her upper body was exposed.
The teen says she was attacked unprovoked by the cop, but he says she was cursing, inciting a crowd, and resisting arrest.
