so if you go online to news stations and reliable sources you see over and over and over racial profiling and cops killing unarmed cuffed people who aren't struggling by choking beating and shooting them to death. we are supposed to trust these cops and yet they will come after us and kill us for no reason or because of our race. its not fair. this body camera is the best thing weve ever done because now we can watch them in the act but its so terrible. what do you think?
What do you think of the corruption America is facing with cops?
What Girls Said 1
There are corrupt cops in every country. It's just televised in America mostly. I do still believe there are good cops.
Yes, I do think body cameras are awesome.0

They don't necessarily show that there is corruption in many videos. In fact most of those videos are cut in very specific ways to give very specific impressions. Sure it may be true, but its a half truth which is actually worse. I saw the full set of still shots of a police officer at a pool party, where he pulls a gun on an unarmed teen, the parts that the media didn't show was that the guy was coming up beside the police officer just within his periferal vision and put his hand behind his back, the police officer then quickly drew his gun on the guy believeing he was reaching for a weapon the guy ran off the police officer asked for a fellow cop to chase the guy and then reholsterd his gun. He is trained to do that because he doesn't know if someone is going to start shooting or not so its better to be prepared. Yet they cut out the first part and the last part making it seem like he was just randomly brandishing his gun. There is corruption, but its as much media as cops.0
Well for one the media exaggerates and riles people up quite a bit, and it really depends on the area, city or town my area there is little corruption and the cops are actually highly respected but in say the city an hour from here it is a lot worse. Corruption is nothing new though is happens in quite literally every country and in their police forces the only difference is that in this digital age, stuff gets recorded and shown easier. And as @hellionthesage a lot of these videos are cut and or altered to show specific impressions and not show the entire story of what happened and only a small percentage of the US law enforcement are corrupt.1
Glad they made the body Cam it'll get rid of those crooked cops over time or at least they will start acting right1
A tiny fraction of a percentage of cops are doing things like this. The rest of them - there's close to a million and a half cops in the US - are out there doing a mostly thankless job dealing with unbelievably bad situations every day so the rest of society can live a safe and normal life.
The incidents are terrible, but they are isolated incidents.0
There are bad cops out there, yes but it's also the publics fault as well. Our views on them are impossible because we demand they act like robots and not humans and be perfect in every way yet we treat them like they are the lowest of the trash at the same time. We tell them to treat us like decent human beings but we refuse to give them the same courtesy. That creates pressure on them and then more mistakes happen.0
It's always been corrupt. It's just modern times with everyone recording shit and putting it on youtube that we now see it exposed more often.1
but most cops are good. only like 1 percent is bad.
the people are fucked up to so it breeds these paranoid over reacting cops. think about it... patrolling a ghetto hood where everyone hates you and is armed.
wuould you risk a higher chance by giving them a benifit of the doubt? no. you have family to go back to and its a job.
i understand both sides and people often are messed up too.2
I think that if people didn't want to get in trouble with the cops then they shouldn't commit crimes. accidents happen and what makes it worse is when people only show you half of the story, and then jump to conclusion. now cops all over the country are afraid to do their jobs because they think they will be branded killers and racist0
There's corruption everywhere specially with cops.. Just recently the cops closed my case when someone hit my car parked on a drive way simply because it happened in a private property...0
Yeah Body cameras are needed big time0
I'm not American but I'm sure that cops there aren't as corrupt as cops here where I live.0
Why I think there are corrupt cops in America, the media exaggerates everything. Those reliable sources tend to tell every story in the darkest light possible. Don't get me wrong, the shit definitely happens, but no where near as much as the media portrays it to be.0
I think it is universal things , the cops here sold drugs after they put the dealer behind jail lol0
Well if one third of them are criminals it seems justified.0
Fuck the police comin straight from the underground
A young nigga got it bad cause I'm brown
And not the other color so police think
they have the authority to kill a minority
Fuck that shit, cause I ain't the one
for a punk motherfucker with a badge and a gun
to be beatin on, and thrown in jail
We can go toe to toe in the middle of a cell
Fuckin with me cause I'm a teenager
with a little bit of gold and a pager
Searchin my car, lookin for the product
Thinkin every nigga is sellin narcotics
You'd rather see, me in the pen
than me and Lorenzo rollin in a Benz-o
Beat a police out of shape
and when I'm finished, bring the yellow tape
To tape off the scene of the slaughter
Still gettin swoll off bread and water
I don't know if they fags or what
Search a nigga down, and grabbin his nuts
And on the other hand, without a gun they can't get none
But don't let it be a black and a white one
Cause they'll slam ya down to the street top
Black police showin out for the white cop
Ice Cube will swarm
on ANY motherfucker in a blue uniform
Just cause I'm from, the CPT
Ounk police are afraid of me!
HUH, a young nigga on the warpath
And when I'm finished, it's gonna be a bloodbath
of cops, dyin in L. A.
Yo Dre, I got somethin to say
[cut and scratched x4] "Fuck the police"0

There's more of criminal problem and people supporting those criminals. Then the media overblowing it because it sells.
It's not a corruption issue.
When you become a legitimate adult, I'd hope you wouldn't say such things.0
That it's overblown and unrealistic compared to the amount that it actually happens. News stations would like you to think that the sky is falling so that they can keep their ratings up--they deliberately rabble rouse.
If you look at actual stats, most cops are NOT bad cops. Most are NOT gunning down innocent people.
There are definitely problems that need to be fixed--but the foaming out of the mouth response everyone is doing is completely out of proportion to the scale of the problem.0
I always support the police.0
