Videos are just a small part of what led the officer to confront an individual. There could be undercover cops involved. There could be ongoing surveillance. None of that is captured in the video but could be used as a tool in the wrong hands to unjustly paint an officer of wrong doing.

    As I mentioned before.....the police already have drones. So they will end up being used. Despite any cameras on Officers and their Cruisers.

    Cameras should be on all LEO's . Those who have nothing to hide, hide nothing. Cameras will keep LEO's in line with the Oath they took and can also help in criminal investigations. It is a win-win situation for LEO's that abide by the Oath they swore.

    It may be a good idea. Yet like a Blue Blood episode had a camera fail during an arrest. Of course the defense claimed the LEO turned it off to not show his use of force.

    Then there are well the digital film has been altered/edited.

    I see the pro/con on their use.

    What is so deplorable is that we are having a conversation putting law enforcement on the hot seat due to activist groups and the leadership of this country from the top down starting with the top cop Eric Holder. I got to vent.....so here it goes. If I was a white cop, for the next couple of years I would avoid arresting any black man for wrong doing to avoid having my life turned into shambles by people like Al Sharpton to Eric Holder. I would recommend they save themselves before all else. Sound sad? Well that is where we are at. Any black cop who dares to buck this administration know damn good and well it will result in a personal attack on their character from being an "Uncle Tom" to right wing extremist. That is where we are at thanks to activists that want to destroy this country one institution at a time.

    If by "race baiters" you mean the anti-black venom that has exploded in the wake of Ferguson, then yes.

    Eric Garner's killer, however, was being filmed. So there.

    For myself.....I think we the people should be going after the MS media and their alleged Reporters. Completely destroying their lives once they start adding their own opinions to reporting. Or do that other thinking for people. Also States should file Lawsuits against Holder for manipulation of Civil Rights Laws.


    Btw did anyone around here ever put up who BO has picked for his AG?

    You may be unintentionally right. The protesters ARE anti-asshole.

    Of course, as we have clearly seen, many whites prefer to literally kill these messengers instead of listen to them. Listening is not an ability that racists have.

    When the MSM no longer "reports" news but follows a political agenda it becomes propaganda. I think the case has clearly been made on that issue. They now sit on stories rather than reporting on them that would be detrimental politically to them. I'm not sure how one fights against that except through the Internet which the left also seems Hell bent on controlling as well to squash free speech that is against their agenda as well.

    As far as the next pick for AG? Last I read, Al Sharpton claimed he was involved in that process to aid the administration in their next pick. How comforting. Like I stated, for the next two years of the Obama administration, all white cops need to protect their own backs, and the black cops who speak out against this administration, know that your very character will be run through the meat grinder in the MSM because you dare speak in a voice off the reservation.
