Texas family says police dislocated black teen's shoulder in rough arrest

Police in McKinney, Texas, are disputing allegations of racism and excessive force levied by a family that's accused two officers of slamming their 14-year-old son to the ground, placing him in a chokehold and dislocating his shoulder.

The family shared on social media a cellphone video that appears to show McKinney Police Department officers arresting Jasper Miller, a freshman football player at Allen High School, after he was kicked out of a movie theater for allegedly being disruptive. The video appeared to be deleted late Thursday night.

At one point, one of the officers appears to sit on Jasper's back and stretch his arm behind him, according to his attorney -- a maneuver that the family said left him with bruises and a dislocated shoulder.

Police bodycam footage from the scene captured teenage bystanders as they yelled and pleaded for the officers not to "break his arm."

I wonder white the difference is.
