New cell phone video allegedly shows Springdale Borough Police officers having a “Taser party.”
“Ready, this is how you tase somebody,” an officer says in the video.
The video is described as disturbing by sources investigating the activities of the Springdale Borough Police Department.
Two former Springdale officers — Mark Thom and Jeremy Liotta – are seen having what is described as a “Taser party” inside the department, with another officer capturing the incident on his cell phone.
This incident was never investigated, no one was ever disciplined.
Right now, former officer Liotta is facing multiple charges, including theft, impersonating a public servant and drug possession charges.
Former Sgt. Thom is facing a federal sentencing hearing in the next few months. He pleaded guilty to civil rights violations, accused of beating Gary Cahill several times.
