South Dakota tasing now viral video

by

Undated (KELO-AM) An Oglala Sioux Tribal police officer was caught by an onlooker on video repeatedly tasing an apparently helpless man lying on the ground.  The video has gone viral.

The FBI and Pine Ridge authorities are investigating and the officer, Beckly Sotherland, has been placed on paid leave.

A Tribal Public Safety official reportedly says that the man was drunk and that the officer was trying to wake him up and get him to stand up. The tased man is o-k and jailed in Pine Ridge.
