• The liberal media evidently has bias against cops. That is outrageous.

      Liberal bias? Never!
  • I wonder why!
    • Hardcore Conservative
      Wrong narrative, maybe?

      My best guess is that the general 'Fake News' isn't here to assist but rather make things hard for normal people!

      True. I think often times many news outlets are more concerned about headline grabbing than they are about getting the facts right.
  • Exactly! Not supporting the narrative!
    • Archie Bunker
      Yup. No surprise there.
  • It's more along the lines of "man bites dog."
  • I've seen a handful of those. Actually, I've seen more videos of bodycams supporting the cops' version of events than I've seen bodycams contradicting them. In the case of Justine Dammond, there were no bodycam videos, and oddly, no dashcam video, but since the officers involved in the case never gave any statements, there was nothing to contradict anyway. Hmm.

      A lot of department don't have cameras. The one that I used to work for, out of 12 cars rolling on every shift, they have one vehicle mounted camera. And it's in the day-turn supervisor's car (meaning it never goes anywhere). They have no body cameras. Most of the departments around us are exactly the same.

      Perhaps it's a budgetary problem. Maybe it's obvious, but, if the public referendum or representative votes to enforce mandatory body cameras, funds through tax dollars need to go specifically toward just that. Voting for a policy and then not funding it isn't going to enact any sort of anything. ...or, maybe the culture could change, with the few bad cops who shoot people being de facto protected by the rest of the police force when the police refuse to cooperate with internal investigations, like in the case of Officer Noor shooting Dammond.
