Officials in South Carolina on Friday released hours of body-worn camera footage and details about the final hours of the life of Jamal Sutherland, a Black man who died in January after he was pepper-sprayed and electroshocked with a taser in his jail cell.

Sutherland, 31, was arrested on Jan. 4 after a "large scale fight" broke out at a psychiatric facility where he was receiving mental health treatment, according to a statement from North Charleston Mayor Keith Summey. He said the city police department did its job delivering Sutherland "safely" from the facility to the jail.

The next morning, Charleston County sheriff's deputies attempted to remove Sutherland from his cell for a bond hearing.

In the video, two sheriff's deputies are outside Sutherland's jail cell and one deploys a taser, or stun gun, and appears to use it repeatedly as Sutherland cries out in pain and writhes on the floor.

3. Would an actual iron bar cell concentrate taser impact?

Don't know what kind of cell they refer to, but I'd wonder if a taser in a small iron or metal enclosure would be more like an electrocution.

5. Complying, kneeling on the floor, ankles crossed and hands behind his back to be handcuffed ..

... and tased after he was handcuffed.

And the Sheriff actually says this event "gives them a good opportunity" to study and fix the system.
