Video: Police Filmed Dragging Teen Down Flight of Stairs & Tasering Her at Chicago High School

HeadlineApr 12, 2019

Shocking surveillance video from inside a Chicago high school has been released showing police officers pushing and dragging a 16-year-old African-American student down a flight of stairs before they beat and tased her. The incident occurred in January, and the video directly contradicts the initial claim of the officers that the student was to blame for the violence. The student was initially charged with two felony counts, but the charges were later dropped. Her family is now suing the city.
