Totally agree. Good cops have nothing to fear from everything being on video. Bad cops shouldn’t be cops. And start charging people for making up stories directly contradicted by bodycam evidence.
Those witnesses who lied about their observations should be charged for giving false testimony during a police investigation.
“Good cops have nothing to fear from everything being on video.”
I respectfully disagree, in part. While I do support cops wearing bodycams and do agree they do more good than harm, the fact is that in the current environment perfectly lawful encounters between law enforcement and the public being caught on camera are being criminalized. Even when we are right we are being destroyed.
This is why I (and many others) am retiring. May God help those in the communities we serve as the mayhem increases as we necessarily retreat.

Then ask your self why police unions oppose body cams.
