For me, the answer to this case is for all future cases. Let's protect good cops and good citizens!
I've heard people complain about the potential costs of Cop Cams . . .
regardless of guilt or innocence with no ability to determine guilt or innocence.
between citizens and the police, because there is no accountability or transparency, there's not even a registry or statistics of police shootings and killings of citizens, regardless of guilt or innocence.
many real estate deals went south in Ferguson and in areas where police shootings of citizens are common. Communities become outraged when questions inevitably go unanswered in anyway that is reasonable or ever seems complete enough to match the six feet under of their sons and daughters, mothers and fathers, grandsons and granddaughters.
LOST TAX REVENUE
from the lost business and the lack of trust and the loss of lives and the loss of jobs.
I could go on . . . but this is just the truth . . . we will never know the truth of what really happens in these police shootings until we have at least some video evidence from at least one perspective from close proximity. We will never know the personal account of the person that has bullets riddled in their body, regardless of that person's guilt or innocence.
The cop and the corpse are and were human beings. Since the technology exists, why are we not rectifying this? Why are we not protecting our police? Why are we not protecting our citizens? Why are we not protecting our businesses? Why are we not protecting our communities?
Why are we more concerned with being outraged and blaming someone or someone else being wrong and us being right? Why are people defending the shooting of anyone with nothing but scraps of info? Why do both sides of the media descend like vultures to raise hell and never ensure that there is ever resolution? Oh yeah, media gets paid for going on and on and on about anything 24/7.
Instead, let's RESOLVE the underlying problem. Let's find out what happens in future situations involving police shootings involving the citizens they pledge to serve and protect. The police have the toughest job. They have to get it right always, and their lives are always on the line. So are all of our lives when guns are on the streets.
So, let's be PRO-something . . . PRO-solution.
