While that does look pretty bad, I hate how these videos almost never show the initial confrontation to know what actually went down. It could be exactly how the kids say it happened, bu I also know that kids can be aggressive and abrasive towards authority. Either way, the cop definitely did not need to do all of that. It seemed he had the kid under control with the initial choke.
Oh...meant to add, was this an actual LEO, or just a security guard for the area?

Ah this age old argument again?
The chokehold used on Eric Garner was not illegal, it was against department policy. Just like going into a club without the proper attire is not against the law, it is just prohibited by club policy.
Isnt the choke hold illegal itself?

Listen to commands and you'll be just fine. All these videos have the same thing in common, punks and thugs not doing what they are told, and disrespecting authority.
I have zero pity for fools.

Unfortunately we don't know exactly how this started.
I was waiting for that (the above quote).
What in your right mind could justify choking and tasing a 12 year old kid prior to what we have been shown? Maybe the kid lipped off a little and hurt the big bad officer's feelings?

Whatever the reasons: out of control kid etc...
If you can't deal with that situation without resorting to a taser you don't deserve a police badge.
