Cops need to be monitored at all times. Audio and video. No exceptions.
The only reason they would balk at this proposal is because they know that they would lose the ability to cover their own asses and manipulate evidence.

And yet you somehow think you know enough to comment intelligently on the facts of the situation? Oh dear.
But I will never stop saying, obey commands, and things won't escalate.
You can keep saying it, but it doesn't make it true. I guess it helps when you don't bother to watch the video before pronouncing your judgment, eh?
