Of course Trump does not want Police to wear body cams, he thinks they are his militia against BLM

Trump struggles with police body camera question at Kenosha event: ‘Well, that’s, uh, very interesting’

While attending a round table in support of law enforcement, the president was asked if he favored the use of body cameras.

“Um, body cam,” the president said, searching for an answer. “Ah, whew. Well, that’s, uh, very interesting.”

At that point the commander-in-chief turned the question over to Attorney General Bill Barr, who offered a favorable opinion of the technology.

“It’s very tough,” Trump said, adding to Barr’s answer. “The whole thing, you read it and you read two sides of the story.”

1. One is my closest friends is married to a cop

And he believes every cop should be wearing one- not only to protect public interest, but also for cops own protection against false accusations. If Trump pushes this he may find cops don’t line up behind him. 🤷🏻‍♀️

2. Good cops are thankful for them - it protects them as much as any citizen

Trump does not see it that way of course because he is the master of round the world thinking. He wants to crash skulls so he thinks that all cops also want to do this, so hide the evidence... it is what he has done his whole life.

3. There are indeed two sides. They're called right and wrong.

And this drug-addled idiot cannot tell the difference.

4. Body camera is an old idea in police reform

Not very effective. Body cameras are used to convict suspects much more than hold officers accountable.

5. I saw this exchange

Trump didn't want to say anything about body cams till he knew how the officers around him felt. Typical Trump, say what you think others want to hear, and don't upset your base. When he found out the others in the room thought favorably of them he claimed he was for them too. It's the same thing he does this with Putin.

6. I thought he was going to say

along with the LEO on the right side of the table, "But bullets are way cheaper than cameras. Gotta save taxpayer dollars and all that".

BTW, that gif above this captures his entire self.

7. Helps correct Behavior

Of both the officer and the public. Studies indicate fewer arrests and fewer lawsuits against law enforcement. By the way thank you Soph for watching this so I didn't have to
