In Harnett, death by Taser

In March 2011, Brandon Bethea died in the Harnett County jail after being shot three times with a Taser by detention officer John Clark. A state medical examiner ruled Bethea's death a homicide, but no one has been punished. This edited version, derived from more than an hour of videos from two county surveillance cameras, shows Bethea, still in leg shackles, backing into the corner of a padded cell when Clark fired.
