According to the district court, Ã??Ã?Â¢??the facts here do not support a finding that a reasonable officer would have considered the fleeing suspects a clear risk to others.Ã??Ã?Â¢?? Indeed, that court declared, Ã??Ã?Â¢??[t]he only objectively reasonable threat that Rickard posed was the threat that the officers also posed by participating in the pursuit.Ã??Ã?Â¢??
The study found a 90% drop in reports of police misconduct and a 60% drop in incidents where police used force.[/quote]
Most complaints against the police are bullshit. It’s no surprise they dropped 90% when complainants know their bullshit won’t fly now that they’re being recorded.[/quote]
As I have mentioned before; that is exactly why I’m in favor of recording. We ask a great deal of these men and women, they represent ‘social morality’. There should be little room for accusations without proof. On the other hand, on the occasion when the officer(s) conduct is inproper, they should be held accountable.
I’m also in favor of it, and know quite a few people who have purchased these devices with their own money.
Yes, they should be held accountable. One issue I do have with this, and it’s minor, is that I like to speak with people on their level and at times that can seem unprofessional.
