From the Associated Press:
The number of U.S. police officers charged with murder or manslaughter for on-duty shootings has tripled this year - a sharp increase that at least one expert says could be the result of more video evidence.Read their full report which details some other recent police murders.
There's no question these cases would not have been prosecuted if not for video evidence, which most importantly triggers public outrage.
Police are still regularly acquitted despite video evidence showing blatant crimes because the system is entirely rigged in the state's favor.
The numbers detailed in the AP report are still pathetically low, we're talking an average of 5 cops charged per 1000 police killings, and being charged with a crime is not the same as being convicted.
Nonetheless, it's a step in the right direction.
