Body Cameras on Police Officers

Several news outlets are reporting today that the Justice Department, as headed up by now Attorney General Loretta Lynch, another appointee of Emperor Barak Obama, is funding the purchase of body cameras for all law enforcement officials across the country.  Supposedly, the motive is to improve public relations with the police.

All of this comes in the context of recent events where several, young, black men have been shot by police, which too many have assumed was the police’s fault, when the evidence vindicated police actions.

Of course, there have been some police seen on video that appeared to have gone rogue, but all those have amounted to thus far are clips, and no one has been convicted of wrongdoing.  The evidence, trial, and conviction are still pending, if there is to be a conviction at all.

According to Lynch, “This body-worn camera pilot program is a vital part of the Justice Department’s comprehensive efforts to equip law enforcement agencies throughout the country with the tools, support, and training they need to tackle the 21st century challenges we face.”

Excuse me, but given the harassment the DOJ has engaged in recently in lampooning and handcuffing police officers, while exalting the criminal element to hero status, simply because those characters exhibited a certain skin pigmentation, then it would appear that regardless of the number of body cameras worn by any police officer, he/she is still going to be portrayed as a dreg of society.

Lynch continued, “Body-worn cameras hold tremendous promise for enhancing transparency, promoting accountability, and advancing public safety for law enforcement officers and the communities they serve.”

Is it not ironic that persons like Lynch and her boss, Barak Obama, are harping about enhanced transparency, the promotion of accountability, and the advancement of public safety, when they are the least transparent, the most resistant to accountability, and the greatest offenders of public safety in American society today?

In other words, if Lynch was really consistent about this whole body camera ploy for police officers, then she would immediately have Barak Obama arrested for treason, tried and convicted, and he would at least be sitting in prison today.  It does not take a body camera to know of his criminal offenses.

But, in the real world of corrupt politics consistency is a fleeting mirage, and transparency, accountability, and public safety, as well as the means to enforce them, are only good for the law keepers, not the law breakers.

What we really have here is a tangible admittance that the legal system is badly flawed, and that some honestly believe that the way to fix it is by sticking a camera on a police officer’s uniform.

Sorry to have to inform the idiots that be, but when a sitting President is allowed to flaunt the law, 0penly, and no one does a thing about it, much less takes a picture, then we can bury law enforcement will all kinds of cameras and recording devices, and the flaws will remain.  In fact, they will only get worse.

Instead of body cameras on police officers, all people need to commit to telling and living the truth.  A great place for that to begin, especially in this context, is in the White House.  Of course, that would mean the President would have to resign, be impeached, and then removed, and we all know that is not going to happen.

So, since Lynch and the lying President refuse to come clean, then this whole body camera thing with police officers is nothing more than another ruse.  Because the real problem is not with the police.  It is with those who have no desire to uphold the law and continue to blame those who do.

Is it any wonder that our country is now more divided on social issues than it has been in the last 50 years?  Yet, those dividing the country wish everyone to believe that their divisive efforts are going to be solved by pinning a body camera on a police officer?  Yeah, right.
