    I honestly believe if an officer mutes or turns off his/her body cam, that needs to be identified as behavior that WILL terminate their employment immediately. Not MAY terminate their employment, will ALWAYS be identified as termination behavior.

    I see it from Germany, it is unbelievable how the executive / police abuse their power. The situation is secured, unnecessary and unprofessional to escalate this situation. For me clearly racist, abuse of executive power. Such officials should be punished. I am not surprised that America, here in Europe gets a worse and worse reputation. Drug / pharmacy problems since the 80s. Outdated systems, from the executive to the legal to the judiciary. Racism. Capitalism. And at the end an imperalism for decades, economic wars that no one wants. Wrongly lived patriotism. But clearly give everyone a gun, what was once a sports club, is nowadays one of the strongest political lobbies. no further questions !

    Why? Because America is a hypocritical country. This isn’t some new phenomenon. It’s been going on for four hundred years. And when black Americans complain or protest, we are accused of “playing the Race card” Why do white Americans express shock over these behaviors? Because for centuries, America has been socialized to believe the ugly stereotypes about Black Americans and other groups of people. We know what those stereotypes. But then they will deny that racism exits. And because they actual believe that we are a country of “liberty and justice for all” Mere bumper sticker slogans. Too many white Americans think they have the right and the privilege to tell other groups of people what their realities are in this country. My God. The arrogance to invalidate another’s experience with brutality. I’ve heard it said that the ultimate show of ignorance is when you reject that which you have no knowledge of. This isn’t going to stop until America faces the truth. Hopefully these videos, as ugly and painful as they are to watch will bring us to a better understanding so we can live up to the image of America. “Until the unaffected is just as outraged as the affected, nothing will change” Voltaire

    to say policing is broken would mean it was ever whole and just. Policing is doing exactly what it was meant to do. Whites just need to swallow truth and not try to hide their support of a WS system. If kitty cats were abused on camera tomorrow the next day laws would pass. Stop WHITE denial and be at peace with the planet. Separate the races or punish white police.

If a car slows down and proceeds to a well lit area then 99% of the Police should know that this has been recognized by the majority of Police Depts until they decide they want to bully and say the things they did.
