Forums - Politics Discussion - This is why we need more cameras in as many practical situations as possible; egg on Shaun King's face

Sherita Dixon-Cole accused Officer Daniel Hubbard of sexual assault and activist Shaun King bought it seemingly with little issue.

Once the camera footage came out, the backpedaling began:

It's beautiful. It's delicious. My day just brightens up when someone's gullibility comes back to bite them in the ass in such a big way...

I just hope some sort of legal action can be taken against Cole and King to give people the heads up that you can't just make up claims nor can you push them either. This officer's life was put at risk.

 

More camera tech in more places please. Cameras are the ultimate witness.

She got caught. Good. But clearly, you never liked them and their 'activist' activities. Having seen true police brutality, I can tell you that no one/group owns the exclusive right to morality or crime. Also, do we need actual video footage of sexual harassment before people can bring it forward? Heck no that is ridiculous. Either way, your post seems like group thought telling me what I should think about certain kinds of people and I know that Fox will enforce that and the last thing any of us needs is actual news wrapped up in poor attempt at dog whistling. Its not beautiful that this guy was tricked and had his credibility harmed by an obvious liar. No one deserves that not a cop and not an activist.



Body cams are good for both sides, keep the cops in check so they don't go overboard and stop false claims like this one. Good job America



Bet reminder: I bet with Tboned51 that Splatoon won't reach the 1 million shipped mark by the end of 2015. I win if he loses and I lose if I lost.

Even with body cams, justice isn't served and people still get away on both sides. But I'm glad this one turned out right. Just wish that would be the case for all instances.

"But clearly, you never liked them and their 'activist' activities."

>I don't like King. He seems awfully gullible.

"Also, do we need actual video footage of sexual harassment before people can bring it forward?"

>No but we need it before we broadcast it as fact which King did.

"Either way, your post seems like group thought telling me what I should think about certain kinds of people"

>That gullible people are dumb and potentially dangerous?

"and I know that Fox will enforce that"

>I know it's Fox but let the article speak for itself.

"and the last thing any of us needs is actual news wrapped up in poor attempt at dog whistling."

>Dog whistling?

"Its not beautiful that this guy was tricked and had his credibility harmed by an obvious liar. No one deserves that not a cop and not an activist."

>He did this to himself when he reported a false story as fact. It's his own fault and I hope this proves to be a lovely and expensive learning moment for him.

Two wrongs don't make a right.

People making shit up and then others assuming guilty without proof is bad, but so is being constantly spied on with cameras everywhere...



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

It saddens me that everything has to be filmed because of situations like this. Why can't people just not lie about serious things like this?



Nothing to see here, move along

The same reason that people can't just not hurt other people, because they're jerks!

Police should not be allowed to turn off body cams while they are out on patrol or responding to a call. Both for reasons like this, and when they chose to lie or abuse their authority.
Protects both the officers and the people from abuse.

That's why I watch all of you with my hidden cams.
