The Shooting Of Map Kong: When Will The Body Camera Video Be Released? Were They Turned On? If Not, Why Not?

Monday, March 21, 2016

It seems like a simple question but as we all know by now - maybe not that simple.

If there were body cameras on, when will the footage be released?

If for some reason the body cameras were not on, why were they not turned on?

When one person has a knife (or possibly a knife as this has not been confirmed by any video footage or physical evidence at this time) and you have multiple police officers on the scene, there is a need to show the videos.

Because you need to justify the killing of a man.

You need to justify the use of force and using a gun and killing someone who may have had a weapon of lesser force, when other options are there to detain a man.

That's how justice is served.
