The Left Wanted Body Cams on Cops, Until They Saw the Truth:
Lefties have been demanding police wear body cameras for years, believing the public would finally see all the wanton acts of violence perpetrated by cops against peaceful, law-abiding members of society. Then they saw the truth.

The I-Team discovered that lesson was learned quickly in East Providence, about a week after the police department adopted a body camera pilot program. --->READ MORE HERE
