Link to the stink



Cincinnati Police Chief Jeffrey Blackwell said he's seen the unreleased footage from a University of Cincinnati officer's body camera during last week's fatal shooting and "it's not good."

"The video is not good," Blackwell said. "I think the city manager has said that also publicly. I'll leave it there."


Apparently the body cam video is so damning not only does Deters refuse to release it without a court order, the police are preparing for riots.

It sickens me that law enforcement would rather risk a city in flames and untold casualties rather than arrest, jail, and prosecute one of their own.

A campus cop blows away an unarmed suspect over failure to display a front license plate and the residents of the city will have to face dire consequences because of the "thin blue line"?

This is BS!!!!

We need police to police the police.

You took, the gun, the badge, and the power- man up and take the responsibility cowards.

I'm all for good cops, but putting the city at risk to cover for your buddy is sickening.

"Riots" aren't planned, riots are spontaneous, like after the Rodney King "verdict" and Ferguson "announcement".

What video?

The blue line is above the law.

Any person that puts themselves above the law is an enemy of the law.

No one is going to save you from the corporate overlords Murica. You've sold out for your illusion of privilege.

The Enquirer (whatever publication that is) filed suit to get the video released.

If it's bad, all the more reason to be open and upfront about it.

By all means, stall the release so the provocateurs have time to organize !!!

And then comes the Feds and the NGOs with their agendas !!

You can bet they are being planned.
This stuff needs to play out in the courts, not the streets.
More innocent people will have their property looted and destroyed and countless people injured over a video that should not be released until it is used in court and verdicts rendered. At that point people can protest the court decisions if they don't like them and vote people out of office.

But no, people are taking the easier path that has been community organized for them for a feel good moment that gets nothing accomplished.

You know when even the police chief says the video is bad, you know the officer did something wrong. And yes, virginia, there is a thin blue line....

If the police chief was smart he would begin to look at ways to calm people, take steps to difuse the situation...no. just get ready fora riot.

Not a good situation

The Enquirer is a tabloid, think "bat boy found at last" and a cheesy picture of a kid with prosthetic ears.

That does not take away from what this situation represents, however.

When the city police chief is worried about what the public's reaction to the video shows, then we have bigger problems than supermarket tabloids

Or maybe if need be (if it's that horrendous) they will have a simple protest sans rioting.

Except these things have not been handled by the court. How many videos have there been with the cop found innocent or more commonly wasn't even charged?


I think it's a money thing. If the state finds the cop guilty they have to pay the family millions and pay to replace the officer. If not the recieve fine money from the victim...

Believe it or not the enquirer is mostly true. Your thinking weekly world news. The enquirer usually focuses on gossip garbage but mostly true.

The Enquirer is Cincy's daily newspaper, a Gannett paper that first published in 1841. It absorbed the Post, Cincy's afternoon paper n 2004.

You had to know it was ungodly bad when they suppressed the recordings. If it had exonerated the cop, you'd have seen them pushing it.

They're trying to drag it out so everyone forgets it.

No. It's the Cincinnati Enquirer. It's reputable rag. The main paper in the city.

Another thing that bears repeating is that this was a college police officer, not a city officer who was implicated in the shooting. I was unaware that college police had any authority outside of the college campus.

Senseless no matter what.

Your talking to a evangelical conspiracy conservative who believes the president is a Muslim, socialist, communist who is actively purposfully trying to destroy his own country.

Those videos are meant to be seen by the public, the case won't be tainted by letting the public see the video.
