14-year-old Keshana Wilson from Allentown, Philadelphia, was tasered by a police officer back on September 29th outside her Dieruff High school, and now the incident is coming back to haunt all parties involved.
Keshana was walking with a group of friends when she had a confrontation with the officer. The surveillance video from the incident has finally been released.
Keshana filed a lawsuit against the officer and the city. What has people concerned is what happened before the officer tased young Keshana. According to the lawsuit, about 1 minute and 45 seconds is missing from the video.
In the video, you can see Keshana walking towards the car before it abruptly cuts to her being slammed against the side of it by officer Jason Ammary.
A struggle ensues, before Ammary steps back and fires his taser at her groin, causing her to collapse in agony on the ground. Before he tasers Keshana you can see that she puts her hands up, but the officer fires anyway.
According to the lawsuit, which seeks an unspecified amount of money, Keshana did nothing to provoke officer Ammary. But her lawyers contend that the officer grabbed Wilson from behind without identifying himself and “violently” pushed her into the side of the car.
What kind of threat did Keshana pose to get such a reaction from officer Ammary? Take a look at how it all went down.
