    "I unholstered my weapon and held it at my side until I knew what was going on." Sans any other independent witnesses or perhaps previously inappropriate conduct by the officer, if we don't take the word of the copper, we might as well close down the force.
    On the flip.aide i have seen with my own eyes, more than once, cops factually lie in court. Knowingly, cynically.

    Just taking their word for things isn't the best idea either. It's part of the reason LE/citizen relations are so bad

    That would be the safest way to do it.

    I can't believe how pussy the cops are these days.

    Shoulda spoken up when their politician bosses were escalating things with their stupid drug war. Thats where this **** started.

    The flip.side is it eliminates officer discretion. They won't just be able to scare some kid then let them go if the camera catches the kid commiting a crime or confessing to one.

    That said, it may be time. I've seen enough bs with my own eyes to justify giving it a shot.

    Based on your pathetic logic, bad cops make all cops bad.

    Try again.
    You ARE allowed in CA to proceed to a public place before stopping for a police car because some cop was raping women.

    And when they **** up, departments sweep it under the rug.
