Beyond the reality that the United States incarcerates more people than any other nation in the world, our police officers shoot and kill more people in any given year than Germany and the United Kingdom combined over the past decade.
Police in the town of Pacos, Washington, with 59,000 people, have shot and killed more people the past six months than police in the United Kingdom, with a population of more than 60 million. And American police aren't shooting people left and right because they all have guns. Almost daily, a man or woman without a gun is shot and killed in America and problem is getting worse.
The officer who chased, shot, and killed Darrien Hunt in Utah was actually wearing a body camera, but claims it was turned off.

Turning off your body camera should lead to immediate dismissal with zero tolerance. We can't trust these thugs to do the right thing unless someone or something is holding them accountable.

Unfortunately some ruin the reputation of all.
Who thought it was a good idea to have an on/off switch that wasn't password protected or have some means of locking the officers out until end of shift?
