Furguson PD has just announced that they will equip all patrol officers with vest cams.

Now, if they uploaded the live video to a streaming website, I would buy into it. Watch, the next shooting they will have a camera malfunction, or the batteries crapped out just before he cop pulled the trigger.

Nice try, Furguson PD. It will take more than body cams to solve the problems there. How about pass out prepaid credit cards?

About time. This device is a must for all departments. If a thug in blue disconnects or turns it off he should be automatically dismissed. Time to cut down on police brutality. Else more of these cops could end up 6 feet under.

(CNN)- Two men, shocked at what they saw, describe an unarmed teenager with his hands up in the air as he's gunned down by a police officer. They were contractors doing construction work in Ferguson, Missouri, on the day Michael Brown was killed. And the men, who asked not to be identified after CNN contacted them, said they were about 50 feet away from Officer Darren Wilson when he opened fire.

An exclusive cell phone video captures their reactions during the moments just after the shooting. Intense clashes during Ferguson protest Protests disrupt Ferguson town meeting Photos: Ferguson council meeting Photos: Ferguson council meeting "He had his f**n hands up," one of the men says in the video. The man told CNN he heard one gunshot, then another shot about 30 seconds later. "The cop didn't say get on the ground. He just kept shooting," the man said.

Look like he was gunned down in cold blood.

Just an example of the problems in Ferguson. There are currently more police warrants for arrests than the number of people living in Ferguson. This is a mess.

What they need is more security cameras to capture the wildlife behavior of the residents and thugs much like watching National Geographic Wild or Animal Planet.

I'm not a big fan of cameras but if they will help police the police, then let's do it.

good, RPD should get them and all police should have them it will disprove all the anti cop "brothers n sisters" saying police brutality, harassment, police misconduct and pulling the Race card. It will also show when the brothers attack a officer, that he was not such a little angel. like that Trayvon thug

If the RPD started wearing body cams, when Emily Good is taping them, instead of arresting her they can just shout at her "We got it covered honey".

The U.N. racism watchdog urged the United States on Friday to halt the excessive use of force by police after the fatal shooting of an unarmed black teenager by a white policeman touched off riots in Ferguson, Missouri.

Minorities, particularly African Americans, are victims of disparities, the U.N. Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERD) said after examining the U.S. record.

“Racial and ethnic discrimination remains a serious and persistent problem in all areas of life from de facto school segregation, access to health care and housing,” Noureddine Amir, CERD committee vice chairman, told a news briefing

*WHAT WOULD SOCIETY DO WITHOUT VIDEO FOOTAGE TO PROVE THE COPS LIE....?

Two Brooklyn cops sideswiped a parked SUV, then arrested a man sitting in the passenger seat of the vehicle, accusing him of damaging their car, a suit charges.

And the officers would have gotten away with their lie — had the whole bizarre drama not been caught by a security camera.

Robert Jackson, 31, told The Post his nightmare began when a police car heading the wrong way on one-way Watkins Street in Brownsville scraped against a parked Ford Explorer, which belongs to his girlfriend.

Jackson, a maintenance worker, said he was sitting in the legally parked car outside of his apartment when the accident happened. He got out of the vehicle and walked up to the officers.

“I was smiling, like,‘How’d you run into me?’ ” he recalled.“Then the cop said,‘Dude, you ran into me.’ ”

Nawwwww, cops don't lie, do they ?

Marcus Jeter faced a years-long prison sentence.

The New Jersey DJ, 30, was arrested in a 2012 traffic stop and charged with eluding police, resisting arrest and assault. Prosecutors insisted that Jeter do prison time.

"The first plea was five years," Jeter said.

But after Jeter's attorney, Steven Brown, filed a request for records, all of the charges against him were dropped, with dash-cam video apparently showing what really happened June 7, 2012. Now, the officers are facing charges.

The video, which prosecutors say they never saw before filing the initial charges, shows Jeter holding his hands above his head.

"The next thing I know, one of them busts the [car] door and there is glass all over my face," he told ABC News station WABC-TV about the arrest.

Legal experts in Cook County differ on how much of a problem perjury by police officers represents.

"Police officers are just like anybody — just because they're wearing a badge and carrying a gun does not give them more credibility," said Cook County Public Defender Abishi Cunningham Jr., a former Chicago prosecutor, defense attorney and judge. "Some officers approach it as a game of cops and robbers," he said. "This is anything but a game

Ferguson should just call Duffy and find out how he got away with having a racist police department for all those years and Duffy might tell him the big secret of simply hiring a black man as the chief of the racist police department then no-one can say they are racist.
