Quotes from the news wire:
And I think what body-worn cameras have done is underscored just how perilous these kind of situations can be, the reality is, this is how policing is changing. Police chiefs will look at that tape, analyze it, and will look at their own policy and say this is so high risk that they will be reluctant to authorize anything that isn't the most narrow, compelling situation. It's so much, so much risk involved. It's just not worth it.
There's a tendency to want to ban certain things, the real question should be, how do we look at these situations and ask what other alternatives could be used to achieve the outcome... how should training change and what alternatives should we be looking at to achieve a successful outcome ? Those are questions situations like this raise.
I think part of it is some reality testing, people are saying look, we want to change the police, but you know we also got a violent crime issue, we have a domestic violence issue... then there's a need to reform American police departments. I think you can do that, but I think what people are saying is, let's do it in a responsible way, let's involve the community, let's educate the police, let's hire better, let's train better, let's supervise better, but at the same time you've got a significant crime issue and you can't ignore that.
Reform should focus on how we hire the best people, how we recruit the best people, how we train the best people, and what state of art training we are giving them, the training we've had hasn't changed in 25 years and it's out of step with today's needs. We need to rethink and reimagine how we train.
There's a big difference between walking down Pennsylvania Avenue and expressing yourself and going into a building where rioters pushed New York Police and hit New York Police and pushed them out of the way to get in, that will be the question. They just came and they marched, versus did they go inside the building and become part of a( riot).
There is no question when there is a video that emerges that shows clearly what occurred, police departments are reacting more quickly, and [they're] likely to take some immediate action.
