    But it becomes an issue if you now need to store terabytes or petabytes of data for hundreds of officers and likely keep them for up to a year or more.
    So I read an article that the cameras have a built-in 30 second buffer, so if they don't have them on but something happens, the cop is supposed to turn it on, and it will show video from 30 seconds before that point.

    That didn't happen here.

    I agree on you there. I could be wrong, but I think I'm a bit more defensive of cops than you are, in cases like this (obviously depending on the case).
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    Interesting. It can't be hard to design them to automatically lock themselves on after registering a gunshot.

    And you're right. This is conservatism.

    Several months ago, I stopped at a red light behind another car. Left a little room for the city cop on the corner to walk past. I motion for him to walk across, and he goes..."Huh?" He and I both laugh when he thinks I'm worried that I've engaged him. If I were black, God knows what would've happened.

    Dash cams are often on even if they're in the vehicle.

    Also if this officer is the same one that helped a homicide investigation (of a local Somali woman) during a recent The First 48 episode (about 1 year ago) he didn't come across as a nut-baller.

    Sounds like this was plotted by John sandford - get Sloan to have a talk with him about all these dead women.

    Re: Cops 5: Barney Fife, Now in Real Life!

    I'm a little confused by the reporting from MLPS. So this woman was on the driver's side of the police car, presumably leaning down/towards the driver's window... And the officer riding shotgun is the triggerman?

    So, this officer discharged his weapon inside the patrol cruiser firing across his partner and out the driver's door? Has anyone asked the other officer involved if his ears have stopped ringing?

    That's how I've read it. I have absolutely no idea why his weapon was drawn inside the car.

    Do we even know yet if this guys partner was in the drivers seat when he shot? That's what I want to know.

    It is going to look really bad if this cop gets charged and convicted considering all of the other cops who have (literally) gotten away with murder.

    I disagree a little bit. She didn't get pulled over by the cops, nor did she get the cops called on her by someone else. SHE called the cops to report something. It's a bit of a different animal, as of this point.

    I think he panicked. Just like Yanez. We'll see if they receive similar fates....

    That doesnt matter...if he "feared for his life" and he goes to jail despite that it will look bad. Black cop kills white lady = jail. White cop kills black man = justified.
