This is the other half of the reason all cops should be required to wear body cams and activate them for all interactions with the public - protects the public, and protects the cops.
I concur....money well spent.
The building and street lamp cameras provide corroborating information as well. The suspect reached for his waistband as soon as he looked over his shoulder and saw the cop approaching on the sidewalk.
Everyone of the “witnesses” providing materially false information should be charged.
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.
The ACLU and others begged for body cams when they thought it would help their cause. Now that it has shown the opposite in 99% of cases they are slowly demanding less use of body cams.
You do not always have time to activate anything except the trigger.
Protect the blue ... out of how many tens of thousands of interactions with The Blue Line every week, how many wrongful acts are committed by the police? Very very small number, yet the demon rat party has herded their blacks to action against the police AND the nation at large. Chaos is a demon rat tool. Their blacks must remain on the demon rat vote plantation ...
Not only no, but "F" word no. Reason is simple, I still haven't taken the time to bury Jimmy Hoffa. I don't want to get caught with the body.
