The Texas city of Schertzhas released body cam and dash cam videos of 18-year-old Zekee Rayford’s arrest. He was kicked and tased after police say he ran a red light and did not pull over. The city released a total of 20 videos from the officer's point of view in the incident involving 18-year-old Zekee Rayford. City officials say the video footage was not released earlier because they were waiting on authorization from the Guadalupe County District Attorney’s Office.Schertz mayor Ralph Gutierrez said in a statement: “I fully understand the concerns and public outcry brought about from this incident. The City of Schertz is an inclusive community and one that celebrates all of our residents. My hope is that in every interaction with the City, residents feel respected, valued, and understood. Throughout every situation the City is deeply committed to doing what’s right and at this time, the right thing to do is be as transparent as we can, which is why we are releasing this footage”
