It probably doesn't matter that they have the evidence to prove self defense because in America now, when a cop kills a minority person it's always the cop's fault.

Well that didn't take long one google search and this came up.

Following the spread of “misinformation” on social media, an Arkansas police department released dashcam footage on Wednesday showing an armed teen killed by officers after he discharged a weapon.

The teen, Charles Smith Jr., was 17. He and two others were stopped at about 1 a.m. Sunday for speeding by officers with the North Little Rock Police Department.

Honestly nothing could be further from the truth. Look at the literally dozens of police shootings. There is only a 35% conviction rate of the police officer. Even when they intentionally turned off their body cams, dash cams and whatever else should have provided eye witness proof.

I get the cops have a sh*tty job, but they have no right to be shooting people who don't deserve it. Body cams should be mandatory everywhere then there is no question. This most recent shooting is just a prime example of why cops *need* to have cameras rolling all the time.

Nowhere did I say cops guilty of killing someone illegally shouldn't be prosecuted to the max but, there has to be a reason for the low conviction rates for police officers "accused" of murder especially considering that the jury's making these findings are usually composed of people from all walks of life and all races including the minority one.

Not every police killing or arrest is a Rodney King like situation where the police walk when they shouldn't have but, by the same token not every black kid in America is another innocent upstanding pillar of the community which is what some other people want you to believe.

I won't get into the numbers or causes about black crime in America but just suffice to say that it's out of all proportion when compared to other ethnic groups a fact which likely fuels the misconception that most black youth are always going to be gangbangers or criminals.

Unfortunately anti police propaganda has done such a great job of vilifying the police for everything that happens while in some cases ignoring the truth or laws, that even the innocent officers involved these shootings are almost always found guilty in the court of public opinion by people who have an axe to grind or are prone to jumping to conclusions and then acting on them without knowing all the facts.

But, for the record I completely agree that all the police should be required to have all their camera's rolling all the time, not just for the public's protection but also for their own.
