Tonight’s group event for the kids at the emergency shelter (a Hawaiian luau) touched my heart in so many ways.
Body cameras not only provide clarity and transparency into a situation, but body cams also benefit the police, too. This makes me wonder why departments — and now a state — want to try and prohibit recording from seeing the light of day.
You see, loving men and women in blue and the desire to see them held to the very law they enforce are not mutually exclusive. Just as I’m proud to be the daughter of a retired cop, I want to fix the system that allows many officers to skirt convictions.
