    Slager, 33, has been fired, officials said Wednesday. His wife is eight months pregnant and the city will continue paying for her medical insurance until the baby is born, North Charleston Mayor Keith Summey told reporters.

It would have been hard for the cop to explain shooting at the man 8 times and hitting him 5 times in the back.

    They have deployed a vast quantity here as a test with the manufacturer's blessing. after the firt three months all they had to show for it was a 20% drop in police misconduct complaints. After six they found the "clear rate" for police misconduct complaints has doubled in number and time to clear. And after nine months, they are finding the un-contested tickets and citations/fines issued by these guys has pretty much skyrocketed. I volunteer at the local community office and the joke is "give a cop a donut and he's happy. give a cop a camera and every other cop has to have one."

    Statements like this simply highlight the fact that your brand of racism isn't all that different than those you criticize.

    Does not justify what I saw on that video.

    I started getting those invitations in the mail even before I turned 50. I am 61 now. Since they still insist on sending them out with prepaid envelopes....I either send back the empty envelope or include a printed article berating them for going along with obamacare. Either way, they get stuck with the postage.

    You are too cynical. It is quite a stretch to claim that either the body cams or the bracelets are 100% cynical. Neither is perfect, however they are both 90% better then nothing.
