Body cams are showing us how our police act and talk. I cannot tolerate what that cop said. He must be fired and IA will simply cover it up.

You watch.

I am about to start a trend. Fresh from my sabbatical in Hawaii, I want to spread the use and idea of Mahalo to the free world.
It means thank you but so much more.
Mahalo

He obviously was trying to be funnny but failed.

Yeah. I'm not sure about this one. The driver was trying to explain away her intoxication by claiming she was nervous dealing with police because of all the recent shootings of black people. The cop essentially said, do the the test, you have nothing to worry about because according to you " we only shoot black people." This is not the time for a cop to say something like that but he clearly was not saying it as a boast and he wouldn't have used the term "black people" if he was trying be a racist. Can a police officer discuss the recent shootings of black people in any context? If we are going to improve the performance of police in dealing with African-Americans then we are going to have to have a candid talk. Most of these shootings appear to be the work of pussies.
