Cell phone footage has emerged of a police officer punching a 15-year-old girl in Mesa, Arizona. The victim is quickly put in a choke-hold and can be heard yelling 'I can't breathe' as her mom begs with the officers to let her go. The man who filmed the incident claims police tried to delete the video and told him they 'could have shot her (the victim) dead' for her actions.
