  1. The black woman that did that she lost her job and she get a punch in her face. Accountability in police force is not so easy.

    1. She was vindicated… She gets back all of her payments… &… BUFFALO MAYOR SIGNS “DUTY TO INTERVENE LAW” TO ALLOW FELLOW OFFICERS TO STEP IN WHEN OTHER OFFICERS ARE USING EXCESSIVE FORCE….because of HER

  2. I think the best you can say about the police officer who murdered Daunte Wright, part of her wished she had drawn the taser, but not a big enough part to keep her from pulling the trigger on the gun.

    1. It still doesn’t make sense that she grabbed her gun instead of her taser. Is he on drugs? Drinking? I know how you can be a cop for 26 years, train officers and still confuse your handgun for a taser.

  3. I’m very proud of you officers for stepping up to make things different within their police department hopefully this spreads throughout all 18,000 departments keep focus with your journey and you can make a change

  4. I think that these guys have a VERY good idea.
    I hope this kind of police work spreads throughout the country–fast.

  5. BUFFALO MAYOR SIGNS “DUTY TO INTERVENE LAW” TO ALLOW FELLOW OFFICERS TO STEP IN WHEN OTHER OFFICERS ARE USING EXCESSIVE FORCE. WILL OTHER STATES FOLLOW????? WHY NOT, FOR ALL AMERICA! Install this as a “class”

  6. This is one of the greatest ideas imaginable for the black community. Using HBCU’S to train young brothers and sisters too protect and serve the black community. That means not just against crime, but against white nationalism, terrorism and systemic racism. This is one of the greatest fears of racist, come true.

  7. Thank you for your dedication. We need college educate police, with good wages instead of scraping scum off the ground & hiring them. These police need to be insured & bonded so we the taxpayers don’t have to pay for bad cops. Doctors have too.

  8. Excellent! Excellent! Excellent!

    I wish you all the best of luck in your endeavors.

    So very much needed for a long time.

    Thank you for stepping up gentlemen.

  9. I think it would be a great idea for MORE universities to offer police academy training as a 4 year degree to ensure we get the cream of the crop! These six month academies aren’t working!!!
