Body cameras will not stop anything. The only real use they have is to prove or disprove the story the officer gives. Was there a “furtive movement or gesture”, or wasn’t there. And that phrase is key, because you see it on almost every police shooting event, especially when it seems to be an incident with a trigger happy cop.

I love how a lot of you people that support the actions of this cop just completely ignore that fact the officer attempted to delete the video. If he did nothing wrong, why attempt to delete the video. You would think he would want a copy of it to prove he was in the right. That action right there SCREAMS he believe he might have done something wrong. In any investigation, that would be called tampering with evidence, and should be grounds for immediate dismissal from the force.
The Driver "claims" they erased her video, she also claimed there was no drugs in her car. SO if one of her claims was not true why should we believe the other? The video supports the police more than the "kid".

Enough rogue cops that we are constantly seeing on video tells a different story. All police forces have their bad apples. Where are the “good” cops to keep these guys in check? Silent, thus indicating the condone this action, and are thus not so “good” after all.

I guess you missed “WTKR-TV reported that Griffith was charged with simple possession of marijuana, but it was later dismissed.” Why would they dismiss it?

Funny all the time I was in the Army only color I saw and cared about was OD Green. I expected no less from any of my soldiers.

Why do I get the feeling it is time to crowd-source to get our vets the treatment they deserve? I am a vet myself, but my work provides me excellent medical, dental and vision, but it looks like my fellow vets are not as lucky.
It's not the size of the bullet that counts. It's the fact you have some!

So I guess no one has ever heard of the t-shirt and tie as a joke?

Maybe he is one of the rare people in this country who has never ingested marijuana orally or through smoking it. I am certainly one of those and I might be a little concerned if out of the blue I started feeling lightheaded and euphoric and I was 58.
I stopped being offended a LOOONG time ago. I actually consider being called a racist now a declaration that I have won the argument, because the other side has nothing left to say but to call me a racist.
I complexly understand where you are coming from, but honestly I want businesses to be able to openly discriminate. Because I want to know who has it out for me. I am not about to impose my money on a business just because they bible thump and I am agnostic. I don’t want them to have my money and would not go to court to try to make them take it. And the reason for this is the free market will shake this out faster then any legislation or regulation ever will. In the past, you could get away with shadow discrimination, now though, in the era of being able to near instantaneously send your message across a city, county, state, country or the world, businesses that do this will face a backlash that will force them to change their policy, fold up shop, or relegate themselves to a “club” membership, in which they can legally discriminate at that point.
Hey buddy you hear of Chick fil A ? the gaystopo tried to scare them with a boycott …FAIL !

That is a 25 year old that looks like he is 45.

So, based on the screen shot I think you can pretty much assume that you can contact any staffer of a Senator by using email@example.com. I love screen shots where people think they are hiding enough information to keep things a secret but they really aren’t.

What is up with all the violent Swedish, Amish people these days?

Geee, you got worship out of what I said, funny, because nowhere did I say worship. Just because I respect something and think it should be cherished doesn’t mean I worship it. If that is your definition of worship, then Obama must be GOD to you.

As a vet of the US Army, Infantry, I say:
1. It is a very artistic and tastefully done picture.
2. It is an attempt and a noble display of patriotism
3. It is very disrespectful to the US Flag.
Every service member is, or least used to be, taught that the Flag is something to be cherished, guarded and protected. It is not to be used as a prop, and an active service member opens themselves up to judicial or non-judicial punishment under Article 134 of the UCMJ
Finally someone with common sense!
As an American, a combat vet (VN), ex Boy Scout, and ex Boy Scout leader, this is disrespect to the flag.
As Tex says, tasteful and noble attempt, but......
"Every service member is, or least used to be, taught that the Flag is something to be cherished, guarded and protected."
The State always indoctrinates it's followers into worshiping it and it's symbols.

Anyone who starts screaming “Admiral Ackbar” in Texas where guns are not restricted and there is not a Star Wars convention in site is bound to be in for a rough day.

The actual individual buyer data is not, but they can keep aggregate stats like zip codes, cities, states, stores used, number of hits per day or hour etc…
