Video surfaces showing Sitka police repeatedly using Taser on high school student


Surveillance video posted to YouTube shows a Mt. Edgecumbe High School student stripped to his underwear and restrained by three Sitka Police Department officers while one shocks him point-blank with a Taser at least 10 times, leaving him crumpled and limp on a holding cell mat.

One officer can then be heard yelling that the teenager is a "douchebag" as he leaves the cell.

Since the video of the incident from Sept. 6, 2014, was posted last week, it has been viewed more than 11,000 times, with hundreds of people sharing it on Facebook.
