This kind of thing is happening every day around this country.
And none of our 'leaders' says a damn thing about it either.
However, the fact that they had taken the suspect into custody when they noticed Medina's action indicates that they had **already** developed probable cause of a crime. So any video, while possibly helpful, would not have been needed for prosecution.
Another example of the continuing mistrust between the public and the police, going both ways. However, being public employees, the responsibility to improve that relationship really does fall upon the police. And the Gresham chief has it right. Do your job properly, and you have nothing to fear from video. It's called integrity, and the public has the right to expect it from the police.
