Excessive Violence? PD Body & Dash Cam Video Often Shows the Other Side of the Story

Share |

Cellphone video alleging police use of excessive force has proliferated in both news and social media in recent years, but in many of those situations, such as this one from Lenexa, KS, those cellphones only get one side of the story – from one perspective. As this report from KSHB TV Kansas reveals, the officers were responding to violence, not instigating it, as they try to arrest a man discovered to have several arrest warrants after a lawful car stop.

While the incident occurred last year (July, 2015), it’s a valuable reminder that one perspective doesn’t necessarily convey the correct viewpoint of what happened – and that the proper use of body cameras for police operations can be vital to defending accusations of excessive force – or not.
