I must admit that I have not been a fan of police body cameras. I thought they were unnecessary. After all, we’ve gotten along without them for so long. Save for a very few cases, what purpose would they serve? Also, I thought that the footage might somehow be able to be tampered with or a situation taken out of context to taint or skew an incident.
Well, I’ve now taken a full 180-degree turn and am all for bodycams. To prove the need for such devices, allow me to cite two recent incidents involving white police officers and “people of color” claiming to be victims of these “racist” cops.
The first took place almost a month ago, on April 27, in Virginia, but has just recently come to light. Leftist “person of color” Dawn Hilton-Williams was pulled over in Brunswick County by a white officer for doing 70 mph in a 55 mph zone.
After she was ticketed, she took to Facebook live to chronicle her traumatic experience. She claims to have been threatened by the white cop. She said that all “my African-Americans and people of color will know exactly what I’m talking about. I want to get a check-in on our people.”
