on the officer's behalf, whereas if there is video evidence it might be obvious that the vic had no gun and that the cop had no justifiable reasons to believe so. i mean, i know its stating the obvious that video evidence is always beneficial, but im just venting. there is too much of this shit goin on seems like every week theres a new incident smh. i wish there was a nationwide campaign for ppl to automatically pull out their cellys when they see a cop. like operation film-a-cop. u see a cop talkn to somebody, AUTOMATICALLY film that shit. somebody. anybody. nationwide. put that shit on billboards, commercials, side of buses, wherever u can fit the slogan. im watchin you watchin me, nigga.
