Looks like the liberals demand for dash and body cams are paying off… in the favor of Law Enforcement. Its gotten to the point where some police are afraid to do their jobs because of the risk they will be demonized. In some cities the police presence has dropped and as a result the crime rate has skyrocketed! Who else is tired of the false rhetoric being used against our LEOs?

Police Chief Mike Davis stated that the video was released in order to stop the misinformation that was plaguing the investigation. “Since the incident, a great deal of erroneous information has appeared on social media outlets. … I want to make sure we clear that up today,” Davis said.
According to the New York Post, Smith was seated in the backseat when the vehicle was pulled over for speeding and missing a headlight. Officers noticed Smith acting erratic, prompting them to question him.
“You ain’t got anything crazy on you, do you?” and “Why were you driving so dang-gummed fast, man?” One officer is heard saying in the video.
