In this newly posted video, Delaware police officer Robert Whitman of the Rehoboth Beach police is seen on video cavalierly tazing 34-year-old Jeremy Anderson of Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, then disturbingly stomping his face into hard pavement.
Jeremy Anderson was placed in the bizarre position of being torn between "not resisting" and trying to guard himself from 50,000 volts of electricity about to be pumped into his body by another cop. While being handcuffed, with one hand behind his back and an officer on top of him, Anderson is seen on video moving his other arm to try and defend himself from Whitman's taser, officer Robert Whitman is then seen brutally stomping Anderson's face twice into the pavement. Anderson's doctors said he suffered a concussion as a result of the vicious assault.
