I just caught this video of the “latest” disturbing incident captured on video tape. So my usual warnings apply to the public and the media:
Remember, we weren’t there. Remember, we don’t know who this guy was or what he said. Also remember that police work often looks ugly, even if justified.
I also have notes of caution for all the cops out there; my friends included. For god’s sake, just know that everything you do is being videotaped! This used to be hyperbole, advice given to send a message to new recruits. Today, it is actually close to the truth.
So let us wait and see on the video, but remember that every action we take is being memorialized somewhere, and that in the end this is a good thing.
