The video begins with police pulling over a family for a seatbelt violation. It ends with officers smashing a window and tasering a passenger. The video itself was recorded by one of the two children sitting in the back seat. Susan Candiotti looks at the record of the officer who broke the window. He has faced multiple excessive force lawsuits, all of which were settled out of court. But some are asking: why was he still on the job?
Video of a traffic stop that ends with officers smashing a window and tasering a passenger has sparked outrage across the country. Susan Candiotti spoke to Yolanda Gray, a woman who says she knows exactly what it felt like, because her family felt similar terror eight years ago. Gray even claims one of the officers in that video had tackled her.
Police have just issues a warrant for the passenger in that video for a marijuana charge from years ago. Anderson discussed this move with legal analysts Sunny Hostin and Mark O'Mara.

We are now hearing from the man and woman who were in the front seat of their car as police smashed through the window and tasered the passenger. The driver was initially pulled over for not wearing her seatbelt. There were two children in the back seat, including one who recorded the incident. Susan Candiotti spoke to the driver and has new information on two of the officers on the scene.
