Police Refuse To Release Taser Tape, But DA Insists

A Eugene, Oregon police officer tasered a Chinese college student, a 19-year-old man the officer reportedly thought was a trespasser.

A 22-second tape which shows the student falling to his side in the September incident has now been released.

The police originally refused to release it, but the district attorney's office ordered it made public.

An investigation is under way to determine whether the officer followed proper procedure.

The same officer tasered another man during a rally last year.

A review board found that tasing was within police policy.

    why refuse to release the tape if you are right.this is what i'm talking about the corruption of the police department .the officers need to be held responsible for their action, here from what is being reported he thought he was a trespasser and taser him this is why the police department didn't want to release the tape. covering up for the officer when he is wrong this is one reason why there is so much miss trust in the criminal justice system
