Some Cops Wear Cameras

Some cops wear cameras.  Cameras can be a good thing or a bad thing.  They are just things, they are not a magic bullet.  Some officers will wear cameras and still do something stupid.  Some officers will wear cameras and people will still second guess them.

Some officers will wear cameras and still we won't really know what happened.  Some officers will wear cameras and we won't see anything that makes sense to those who were not there.  Some officers will wear cameras and the incident will be plain and clear and everyone will be happy.

Some officers will wear cameras, do a good job and get fired anyway.  Some officers will wear cameras do something bad and still not get caught.  Some officers will wear cameras and they will show the officer was right and the suspect was wrong, and people will say the tape was doctored.  In my career we started carrying walkie talkie radios, got computers in the cars, high capacity pistols and we still have crime and controversy.  Cameras are just another tool; that's what the SGT Says.
