Most police departments and unions, including the RCMP's union are in favour of body cameras. Take it up with your politicians.

Yes it's the fault of the politicians who are cheap.

Then maybe you should get your facts straight.

Exactly right. Lots of cities in Canada have cops without body cams.  How lovely.

I hope these cops aka tyrants enjoy being sued and fired.   The blind guy is a champ, he knew all his rights and did and said all the right things and didn't resist arrest.  He's alive and will make a lot of money.

Turns out the sergeant involved in this incident with the blind guy had previously been a K9 handler but was disciplined after leaving his dog to die in a hot car.

If you can do that and keep your job with just a slap on the wrist, no chance he faces any real consequences from this. Even if these hogs get sured, it's the taxpayer that foots the bill.

To serve and protect!

Full of life and smiles — that’s how 48-year-old Kenneth Vinyard is being remembered.

“He was such a kind and good man as evidenced as he was acting as a good Samaritan,” Attorney Joel Sansone said.

His family’s attorney is bringing light to his death, which happened in the parking lot of the Walmart in Monaca Sunday night.

Sansone said Vinyard was helping a man who was shot right by his car while he was waiting for his fiance to come out of Walmart.

“An unidentified man insisted he step away and violently pushed Mr. Vinyard to the ground where he struck his head on the pavement. His fiancé began to render aid to Mr. Vinyard including chest compressions because he had no pulse,” Sansone said.

That’s when Sansone said the man identified himself to the fiance as a police officer with Center Township. Just a few hours later, Vinyard died from his injuries.

Betting this gets deleted, but a rare moment of honesty here from a high ranking cop suggesting they lied about crime before the election but now that it's over they want you to know what a great job they are doing.

Not quite….  They just withheld the information that would have corrected the lies that the Republicans were spewing.

A lie of omission is still a lie!

Arizona Town To Pay $8 Million to Widow of Daniel Shaver, Shot While Crawling Unarmed Toward Police

Quote
The Arizona Republic reports that the town of Mesa, Arizona, reached an $8 million settlement last week with the widow of Daniel Shaver. Shaver is the unarmed man who was fatally shot while crawling down a hallway on his hands and knees toward police officers, begging them not to shoot him.
...
This is the second large lawsuit settlement Mesa has paid out for Shaver's death. According to the Arizona Republic, the town paid Shaver's parents $1.5 million in a separate lawsuit.

In 2017, a jury acquitted Brailsford of second-degree murder and reckless manslaughter. This is because juries are instructed to judge officers not by how a normal civilian would respond, but by how a reasonable police officer is trained to respond to a threat, real or imagined. As Reason's Jacob Sullum wrote, the acquittal showed that cops on trial benefit from a double standard: "Unlike ordinary citizens, they can kill with impunity as long as they say they were afraid, whether or not their fear was justified."

This part beggars belief:

Quote
Brailsford indeed challenged his termination, and in response, the city cut a special deal that allowed him to be temporarily re-hired so he could retire with medical benefits and a disability pension. Brailsford claimed that killing Shaver and his subsequent prosecution gave him post-traumatic stress disorder. Because of this, he will receive a monthly pension check of $2,569.21 for the rest of his life, courtesy of Mesa taxpayers.

Maybe we should defund the courts until they start doing their job.

This guy had 15 charges including 9 for breaching conditions. What did he get? Time served, probation and more conditions. Bet he has already stolen his first car since he was released.

Something is off here:

The Abbotsford Police Department said at the time that officers spotted Bender driving, although a court order prohibited him from doing so. The officers blocked in his vehicle after he parked and arrested him as he got out of the car.

A loaded handgun was allegedly found in the vehicle within Bender’s reach, as was an alleged “large quantity” of drugs. But he was not charged with either of those offences.

A illegal gun and a large quantity of drugs and he only catches minor charges?

One would have to ask Crown about that. In BC, police can only recommend charges. Even so, you have to wonder how many hours police spent getting even these charges approved. For what?

The cops may have f*cked up the case.

If they did, Crown wouldn't have filed charges. This guy is a prolific offender who violates conditions all the time. All he got was time served, probation and more conditions which no one expects him to keep. What a waste of time.

This one is gonna be bad.

‘You’re going to see acts that defy humanity,’ police chief says, as officials urge calm when Tyre Nichols arrest videos are released publicly tonight


Quote
Video of a traffic stop that led to the deadly beating of a 29-year-old Black man shows “acts that defy humanity,” the Memphis police chief told CNN on Friday, hours before the expected public release of the footage.

“You’re going to see a disregard for life, duty of care that we’re all sworn to and a level of physical interaction that is above and beyond what is required in law enforcement,” Chief Cerelyn “CJ” Davis told Don Lemon of the video in the Tyre Nichols case, noting it will be released on YouTube in four parts.

Five Memphis officers were charged Thursday in Nichols’ death following a reckless driving stop that Davis said her department has not been able to substantiate.
