Police Brutality

Many people think that giving cameras to police will solve all the problems with complaints about excessive use of force.  They will not.  In fact, I think they will only make them worse.  What will happen is every use of force will be reviewed and anything that simply looks bad on camera will be another opportunity to complain.

The people rioting in the streets don't care about police brutality.  They want to disrupt the nation, burn down buildings, and steal a television and a pair of shows.  The people that care about police brutality attend public hearings, run for office, vote for candidates and lobby for support of effective policing, strong laws, and good schools.

They don't throw rocks at police and burn police cars thinking that such actions will make the streets safer.  They don't intimidate witnesses, make threats, and shoot at cops.  They don't ignore the physical evidence, the forensic analysis, the coroners reports and the grand jury testamentary.  They educate themselves about what happened and they take legal action in accordance with the law; that's what the SGT Says.
