Police didn’t have body cams until very recently in American history. Up until that point, race-baiting, cop-haters screamed BRUTALITY and RACISM without end, and we had no way of contradicting their tale of woe and despair.
Now, the number of U.S. police departments outfitting their officers with body cameras increases each year, but according to racist minorities that hate the police, the cameras can pose a threat to civil rights if the departments fail to set rules that govern when officers review footage from their cameras, according to a new propaganda piece written by a former member of the Obama regime.
Let’s see what this video below has to say.
Well, would you look at that. The PRESIDENT of the NAACP in his state is lying about police racism? Say it isn’t so!
The vast majority of the nation’s biggest police departments allow officers to watch footage from body cameras whenever they want, including before they write their incident reports or make statements, said the police-hate propaganda, which was released Tuesday by the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights.
“Unrestricted footage review places civil rights at risk and undermines the goals of transparency and accountability,” said Vanita Gupta, former head of the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division and current head of the Leadership Conference, in the report’s introduction.
But let’s take another look at what this unrestricted footage reveals.
Here’s the accusation video.
Here is reality.
The race-baiting propaganda claims:
Because an officer’s memory of an event may be altered by watching body camera footage, doing so will likely alter what officers write in their reports. That, in turn, can make it more difficult for investigators or courts to assess whether the officer’s actions were reasonable based on what he or she perceived at the time of the incident, states the report, “The Illusion of Accuracy: How Body-Worn Camera Footage Can Distort Evidence.”
Here's why this matters: Without carefully crafted policy safeguards in place, there is a real risk that body-worn cameras could be used in ways that threaten civil and constitutional rights and intensify the disproportionate surveillance of communities of color.

Body camera programs are in place at 62 of the 69 largest U.S. police departments, according to a scorecard released Tuesday by the Leadership Conference. Most of those departments—55, or almost 80 percent—allow officers to view their footage whenever they want.
The Leadership Conference report advises that police departments institute a “clean reporting” policy, under which officers write an initial incident report before reviewing any footage. Only afterward would they watch the footage and write a second, supplementary report.
“We make the case that in the interests of consistency, fairness, transparency and accountability, clean reporting should be adopted as a standard practice for all police departments with body-worn camera programs,” writes Gupta in the introduction.
Never mind that the police help anyone who needs it, regardless of race, as seen below.
Some policing experts say officers should view the footage before writing a report to make sure the account is correct.
“They want to be as accurate as they can,” Lance LoRusso, an ex-cop and current Atlanta attorney who represents police officers, told the Associated Press. “This specter that every time an officer looks at the video they’re going to lie and adapt their statement just is infuriating because we want the officers to write the most accurate report they can.”
The facts are clear. The public demanded body cams to protect people and show the truth behind police encounters.
Now that the facts are being revealed to the public through police body cams, the false claims of race-baiting cop-haters is being exposed, and we can’t have any of that, because Democrats need the freedom to tell lies without being caught, right?
So in closing, let’s not mince words. The police aren’t racist. The people who claim the police are racist ARE THE RACISTS.
Thank you for joining us in this reality check.
