Bodycam Advocates Now Claim Body Cameras Are A ‘Threat To Civil Rights’

A civil rights group released a study that says bodycams can alter the way a police officer writes a report.
Washington, DC – Civil rights advocates demanded accountability from law enforcement agencies through the use of bodycams in the wake of the Ferguson riots.

One at a time, police departments nationwide have implemented bodycams, at considerable expense, to satisfy their critics and provide more “transparency” in law enforcement.

The result? A new report from The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights said that bodycams pose a “threat to civil rights.”

The report, “The Illusion of Accuracy: How Body-Worn Camera Footage Can Distort Evidence,” was released on Tuesday, according to Newsweek.

A big concern listed in the report is an officer’s ability to watch the footage whenever they want, including before they write incident reports.

“Unrestricted footage review places civil rights at risk and undermines the goals of transparency and accountability,” Vanita Gupta, current leader of the Leadership Conference, said,

Gupta is a civil rights attorney, former ACLU director, and former acting assistant attorney general of the civil rights division under former President Obama.

The report claimed that an officer’s memory of an event may be altered by watching bodycam video footage, and reports written by the officer about the incident would then also be altered.

The problem appears to be that defense attorneys can’t pick at minor differences between an officer’s memory and what’s recorded on video.

“Video’s power to improve policing lies in the fact it makes us all eyewitness to police-civilian interactions, ranging from tragic shootings to more quotidian but nonetheless disturbing stop-and-frisks, which are common and … often unconstitutional,” the Washington Post said in an opinion column.

“Video provides compelling evidence of police misconduct and can be used to train, discipline, fire and even prosecute officers. It’s also a potent tool for exonerating officers falsely accused of misconduct. Ultimately, the aim is avoiding illegal, inappropriate police-civilian interactions, because everyone involved acts differently knowing a camera is rolling,” they wrote.

Civil rights groups don’t have a problem with bodycam footage until it’s used to exonerate a police officer, or shows that suspects and victims have threatened police, or behaved badly during a recorded incident.

At that point, bodycams become a threat to civil and constitutional rights, according to Gupta’s assessment.

The Leadership Conference, in its report, called for police departments to institute “a clean reporting policy” where an officer would write an initial report before viewing the footage.

Some policing experts, such as Lance LoRusso, disagree.

LoRusso, a former police officer and current Atlanta attorney who represents police officers, said that police officers should view the body-cam footage before writing a report.

“This specter that every time an officer looks at the video they’re going to lie and adapt their statement just is infuriating because we want the officers to write the most accurate report they can,” he said.

Since one major purpose of bodycam footage is to keep all parties involved honest and “transparent,” the Leadership Conference’s one-sided approach doesn’t make any sense.

BREAKING: November 4th ANTIFA Threat!!

THE MAINSTREAM AND RATHER BIASED MEDIA WERE TRYING TO DISMISS THE NOVEMBER 4TH NATION WIDE “ANTI-FASCISM” PROTEST AS A “FAKE NEWS” STORY DESPITE ITS SIGNIFICANT POTENTIAL FOR VIOLENCE AND DESTRUCTION.

Infowars reporter Paul Joseph Watson did everything in his power to expose the coverup.

Infowars.com reported: Michael Edison Heyden writes about a Twitter user and VICE writer named @KrangTNelson who tweeted, “Can’t wait for November 4th when millions of antifa supersoldiers will behead all white parents and small business owners in the town square.”
Heyden downplays the threat as a “joke” that was meant to “mock” the baseless fears of elderly Fox News viewers that Antifa is planning mass civil unrest on November 4.

One wonders how Newsweek would have responded to a racist member of the “Alt-Right” making a “joke” about beheading black people?
Would they have dismissed it as harmless humor, or would they have demanded that person be banned by Twitter and investigated by the authorities?
Newsweek is also still claiming that an Antifa plot to stage a violent overthrow of the government or a civil war, starting November 4, is a “fake news story” invented by Infowars.

Really? The Revolutionary Communist Party website, an Antifa front, directly states that its plan, set to begin on November 4, is to “demand that the whole REGIME must go,” and that the end game is “Trump being removed” from office.

RED OCTOBER: What James Comey Just Tweeted Looks Like Death Threat Against Trump

James Comey May have sent out secret messages from a secret twitter account that is rumored to be his. The former FBI director admitted that he was secretly on Twitter and Instagram to last year.

The magazine Gizmodo figured out which account he was operating under and unveiled Comey’s secret. His Instagram account is titled, Reinhold Niebuhr. In his Senior year at the University of Chicago Law School, Comey wrote a thesis on famous theologian Reinhold Niebuhr.

The Reinold Niebuhr Twitter account assumed to be run by James Comey sent out a tweet in response to President Trump slamming him. Here is that Tweet.

Comey’s friend even commented on it.

This Thursday, he tweeted out again with the caption: “Little Round Top, Gettysburg. Good place to think about leadership and values.”

There are many conspiracy theories about the messages right now. On Friday, Comey sent out a tweet with a picture of a man standing in a corn field saying, “Good to be back in Iowa.”

Iowa is the first state on the road to becoming to President. Is James Comey trying to send a message that we need a new President? Is this a death threat against President Trump? Why is the sun setting on the horizon?

These tweets show that Comey could be dangerous, though. Share this RIGHT NOW to get this to Trump. He needs to know about this ASAP if it is a threat.
