A woman is stopped for a minor traffic infraction. She had a tail light out. The cop wrote her a ticket. In this area, a ticket for faulty equipment will frequently be dismissed if you get the equipment repaired. Instead, this woman decides to escalate the situation and rolls her window up on the cop’s arm.
What follows is an example of why I think everyone will benefit from cops carrying body cameras:
The cop showed restraint, and this woman deserved to go to jail. Of course, she has filed a brutality complaint, and is claiming that she was arrested for “driving while black.”
To the officer: You are a calm professional, and I support what you did here.
