WATCH | The Balch Springs police department in Texas was already under heat after one of its police officers shot and killed unarmed 15-year-old Jordan Edwards a month ago. Now, as the Department of Justice is investigating the case, another leaked video shows their officers in another incident.
The footage was shown to Chief Jonathan Haber by police officers who were concerned with the sergeant's action in the video. In it, the supervising sergeant tases the 39-year-old Marco Stephenson not once, but twice. It was recorded on a police body cam on April 28, 2016.
According to KDFW-TV in Dallas, Chief Haber is "concerned about the timing of the video leak and how it might affect the perception of his officers."
The video was obtained by KDF-TV in Dallas.
Balch Springs PD made their twitter account private after the video went up.
