Body cameras are not the answer. We had what amounts to a body camera in the Eric Gardner case and the grand jury with the DA’s urging voted not to indict ANYBODY for ANYTHING in this homicide. We need justice. We need transparency. We need special prosecutors in police shootings in NYC. The DA’s office has a huge conflict of interest in these types of cases, which is why the grand jury did what it did. How can you expect the DA’s offices who work closely with the police department to turn against them when the shoe is on the other foot and an officer accused of homicide? The answer is you can’t expect that from the DA’s office. That’s why we need special prosecutors in these types of case whether it’s through the Federal government or through local governments.
DO BLACK LIVES MATTER TO WHITE AMERICA?
I’m afraid of the answer, if the police represent guard dogs of America’s wealthy while being an invading militarized force to communities of color people. Vastly different viewpoints, huh?
