After rioting in the streets, demanding that police wear body cameras, liberals are now saying that body cameras are racist and can alter a police officer’s memory.

According to a new study by The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights called “The Illusion of Accuracy: How Body-Worn Camera Footage Can Distort Evidence,” officers pose a threat to civil rights when they review their body cam footage.

The report claims that many police departments allow their officers to watch their body cameras before or while writing a police report — as opposed to writing a report based on what they could recall.

As a result, the report alleges that this warps an officer’s memory and damages the authenticity of a report.

“Given that even slight changes in memory can impact how an officer ultimately describes his or her own experience within an incident report, departments must protect the integrity of these reports by requiring that officers document their untainted perception before watching any footage,” the report argues.

The report damns the efforts of police departments to give transparency in their dealings with the public.

“Unrestricted footage review places civil rights at risk and undermines the goals of transparency and accountability,” Leadership Conference CEO Vanita Gupta, head of the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division during the Obama administration, wrote in the report’s introduction.

This blatant disregard for law enforcement in our nation infuriates former police officers.

According to The Associated Press, former police officer and current lawyer Lance LoRusso condemned the report.

“They want to be as accurate as they can,” he said, referring to officers writing police reports based on body cameras.

“This specter that every time an officer looks at the video they’re going to lie and adapt their statement just is infuriating because we want the officers to write the most accurate report they can,” he continued.

Washington D.C. Chief of Police Peter Newsham told NPR that cameras have not changed the way his officers act or the way they write reports.

“I think a lot of people were suggesting that the body-worn cameras would change behavior,” Newsham said. “There was no indication that the cameras changed behavior at all.”

Newsham stated that his officers were doing the right thing in the first place and that people are misconstruing the purpose of the cameras.

“I think it’s really important for legitimacy for the police department,” Newsham told NPR. “When we say something to be able to back it up with a real-world view that others can see.”

Demands for police officers to wear body cameras grew out of controversial police shootings led to accusations that cops were unfairly targeting minorities in America. The shootings led to riots, where protesters demanded cops interactions with the public be recorded.

Now that many departments have them, and they’re simply showing that most police officers are doing their jobs correctly, the discontented “civil rights groups” want to restrict their use.

This is just another tactic by liberals to try and take down the police. They were hoping to uncover every officer as a racist murderer, but they’re just finding out that most people in law enforcement are upstanding people who just want to do their jobs and serve our country.

Their efforts to take down the men and women who serve our country won’t work this time.

Some people just cannot stand the truth!
