    It can be hard to keep a story straight when it's being made up at the top of a person's head. Take this gem that you pointed out...

    The city decided it was best to give the family $1.25 million before the trial of the officer ever began, pretty much sealing his fate.

    This and the local decision are perfect examples of knee-jerk reactions before the facts are known.
    This is also why we should just start requiring cops to wear cameras as part of the uniform. If we can record these situations, it would go a long way into stopping the knee jerk reactions and allow us to properly assess the situation. If course it wouldn't be a 100% guarantee, but it would likely go quite far into clearing many these things up.

    OMG the people in this forum sink to depths I never would have thought. I never thought someone would call a radio station pretending they know someone in the media just to prove their point on the internet but hey. Good work "Josie".
    And?
    You have no evidence to connect it to the Josie that posts here. Let alone any Josie that posts here.

    Sounds to me like she had her story very straight. She just didn't want to give too much information about who she heard it from.

    If I'm making up a story I probably wouldn't want to connect it to anyone either. Of course she had her story straight: there's no evidence to contradict it just yet...but there's already cracks in it...

    That's a swell idea. Then cops could just walk up and down the street taking pictures of everyone and running those pictures through facial recognition software. Then, if you show up somewhere that you generally don't go they can investigate you as a potential threat to national security.

    We're already doing that, we're heavily monitored and the NSA is already engaged in heavy spying. Could it be abused? Yes, like anything with government. Government needs to be restricted. But recording police interaction with the public can serve both well.

    The officer's car wasn't equipped with a video cam.

    If you take one story over the other, you are clearly biased and should be ignored. There are two sides, only one of which has been proven to have credibility issues.
    - There was never a good war, or a bad peace.
    - Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.
    - Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.

    I'm sorry, but I don't understand why the friend/significant other's calling in is a crank call.

    But I do think that this has probably put Officer Wilson in some hot water with his bosses, and it surely doesn't help him.
