    4 people fired for killing innocents. THIS IS WHY THEY ARE RIOTING. MURDER IS A CRIME, not a fireable offense.

      @Taharqa Mansa So “pbs” wrote an article. The fbi never issued any such statement.

    • Nathan F Smith | June 2, 2020 at 8:43 AM | Reply

      @Taharqa Mansa I’m going to need actual proof of the FBI issuing said statement. Don’t post some link from a leftist owned media source “saying that the FBI issued some statement”

    • Taharqa Mansa | June 2, 2020 at 8:55 AM | Reply

      @Nathan F Smith An FBI intelligence assessment—titled “White Supremacist Infiltration of Law Enforcement” and published in 2006 during the administration of President George W. Bush—raised alarm over white supremacist groups’ interest in “infiltrating law enforcement communities or recruiting law enforcement personnel.” The report, based on FBI investigations and open sources, warned, for example, that skinhead groups were actively encouraging their members to become “ghost skins” within law enforcement agencies, a term the report said white supremacists use to describe members who “avoid overt displays of their beliefs to blend into society and covertly advance white supremacist causes.”
      In 2015, a classified FBI Counterterrorism Policy Guide, obtained by The Intercept, stated that “domestic terrorism investigations focused on militia extremists, white supremacist extremists, and sovereign citizen extremists often have identified active links to law enforcement officers.”

      @Taharqa Mansa Where’s the the direct link of the FBI issuing any such “statement”

  3. Yet another good example of why PEOPLE HATE COPS !!!

    All police forces tend towards corruption. Without serious citizen oversight they become nothing more than sanctioned gangs.

  5. Those that rule by force will be removed.

  6. If it’s the law that they have to have their body cameras on then why aren’t they just immediately fired whenever they’re discovered to be off… CORRUPT COPS

    • Alex Warner | June 2, 2020 at 1:17 AM | Reply

      Big Boomer strange thing is the body cameras may be useful for them, if they genuinely get attacked by civilians without provocation

    • Pinche Gringo | June 2, 2020 at 1:30 AM | Reply

      @Alex Warner The tyrants known as police dont need video evidence to incriminate an individual. In courts there statement is “the truth”. They turn there cameras of because there corrupt POS following orders from corrupt POS.

    • How is it “law”?

    • Pinche Gringo | June 2, 2020 at 3:14 AM | Reply

      @Frank L i believe someone in the vid said it was “a law” most likely a requirement mabey. But i believe police across the U.S. should have to wear them 100% of the time while on duty and any charge or arrest made while a LEO camera is off should be dissmised. That way they have no choice but to keep them on.

    • Big Boomer corrupt Nation,,corrupt politicians, corrupt AMERICA

  7. They need to clean up the whole Police Department get rid of them I know they racist the governor of that City need to clean it up jmw

    • The problem is that the police department heavily recruits former military rejects who have no business being police officers. Not to mention the grotesque abuse of steroids and other “substances” that many of these police officers use.

      This is a problem across America. Police are the real criminals! #NoJusticeNoPeace

    • Jeff Webb yes you are exactly right – usn vet

  8. He know why they didnt turn on those body cams. NO WITNESSES!!!!!

    I told you so.
    The police are shooting protesters.
    China should ask for human rights for the protesters.

    There’s gonna be lawsuits backed up in the courts for the next 10 years. Lawyers are gonna be rich.

      Lots of jobs in construction, too, with all the re-building that will need to be done. So who do we thank for all this job creation, the mythical ‘Antifa’?

      @ides of march Well, if you’re a biblical person as OP obviously is; it’s probably pretty easy to think of Trump as “the great deceiver”

      If you think trump is to blame your dumb. the trump supporters are the ones getting there businesses burned to the ground…….Its ANTIFA that is the real enemy and must be destoryed like the traitors they are

      @ides of march No looter will vote for Biden. They’ve never gotten as much free stuff from any Democrat as they’re getting now under trump’s administration.

      @Constituent A Cracks me up when a KAREN wines about spellin. YOU aint worth spel check. Thats what it meens POTATOE brain…. WANT TO BRING IN PEACE ON EARTH STOP BEING A F-ing KAREN

  13. I thought it was policy that they activate body cams when interaction. Why aren’t they following policy if they are wearing them…. what’s to hide…

    The Mayor fired the Police Chief. Think about that.


    • Shayne Handy | June 2, 2020 at 9:28 AM | Reply

      and of course it won’t stop. The best action would be leave the picket waving be and crackdown on any violent dissidents and that should includes everyone since citizen arrests are a thing and aren’t used as often as they should.

    • @Shayne Handy You obviously dont know what you are talking about a citizens arrest is not an arrest. You can tell someone you are arresting them but it is their choice if they want to stay and wait for police to show up. If you stop them from leaving YOU are kidnapping them and WILL go to jail.

    • Shayne Handy | June 2, 2020 at 10:12 AM | Reply

      @excited box and what will you do when Grandma is being robbed, stand there with your phone out? Your pathetic

    • @Shayne Handy Right, so I am pathetic for showing that you are factually wrong. You live in a fantasy world making false claims but I am pathetic. I live in Germany and our cops do not act like that and we don´t have looting or robbing, or the violence. I lived in Philadelphia from 1996-2012 though and I can tell you having experienced both countries that the European way is 100s of times better.

    That’s a shame he need to fire anyone who don’t activate the body cam he mit have to clean house

    Really? The state of Moscow Mitch and his handler Oleg Deripaska has a corrupt police department? Who would have figured?

  17. Teresa Yang | June 2, 2020 at 1:30 AM | Reply

    Those who had body cameras purposed shut it off to avoid incriminating themselves. Corrupt cops obviously !

    • Oh but its ok for people to shot at police and burn police stations and hit police with cars. Im with the police! Respect police and you’ll be ok. Disrespect police and you wont be ok. Simple!

    • Tyler Wilson | June 2, 2020 at 9:23 AM | Reply

      Sd Ds George Floyd was trying to comply with the police and he was executed in public. Stop being such an inhuman bootlicker. You either stand with humanity or against it. The cops are against it. They’re just psychopaths collecting a paycheck. Nothing more.

    • Sd Ds your a pathetic piece of garbage

    • @Sd Ds You are wrong. I am a white male and have had very few good interactions with police. There are many crooked cops and there are areas with good cops. A town near us was known to get all the cops with lots of complaints assigned to it because it was a poor area. Just as the church hides their bad apples.

    Those bodycams need to be redesigned so that officers are unable to turn them off!

    • GreensOplenty | June 2, 2020 at 6:44 AM | Reply

      no you gotta recharge em and they run outta battery
      need them to hold each other accountable and stop each other when they know they are doing something wrong, think alota places got those laws but they ignore em so they can act like a gang of tough guys, like high school kids with guns and power
      or every cop car needs a babysitter

    • Tyler Wilson | June 2, 2020 at 9:24 AM | Reply

      GreensOplenty don’t make excuses. Keep extra batteries in the patrol cars instead of their military weapons.

    • @GreensOplenty You could make it a felony to conduct a stop without a camera running and the cops would make sure that they are running. Phones beep for hours before the battery dies and with multiple cops on scene there is no reason for everyone to have dead batteries.

    • GreensOplenty | June 2, 2020 at 8:35 PM | Reply

      @excited box yea but theres no reason they are always turned off now too, only thing i can think of is put cameras on every street corner like the UK does, but that still doesnt keep the bad cops from losing and misplacing evidence. need them to act professional and just not break laws but they dont like that.
      google video lost before trial probably find a buncha stories
      its funny no one even suggests that they just obey the law…because they dont and everyone knows it

  20. fire the whole department and start anew….there is a historical precedent for that action.
