The Balch Springs Police Department, the same police department that shot and killed 15-year-old Jordan Edwards just two weeks ago, is now under fire for using a taser on an unarmed Black man. Leaked body cam footage shows a White officer using the taser on Marco Stephenson, who is already detained and completely compliant at the time of the assault.

The video was reportedly leaked to Fox 4 by another officer who has since been fired. The officers were reportedly responding to a call about a man waving a gun in the neighborhood. That man is cuffed and following the officers’ commands before one of the them sends volts of electricity through his body.

The incident happened before the Jordan Edwards shooting but was leaked to police after the murder of the unarmed teen. The sergeant who used the taser in the video was reprimanded and is not allowed to deal with the public until he finishes classes on conflict resolution and anti-bias.

Stephenson, while compliant, has over 35 documented run-ins with the law and been arrested over a dozen times.
