Outfitting KCPD with body cameras still being worked out

Last month, Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas signed a list of demands from protesters. The second item on that list was getting body cameras on Kansas City police officers as soon as possible.Just days after demonstrations began in the city, leaders took a big step in making that a reality.

WTF, why is this taking so long?...Gov't should move much faster than this...all we need is more money thrown at the problem.

What is taking so long is the FOP thinks this will go away eventually and it will be business as usual.

Can't wait to see the videos of the behavior of the "citizens" that the cops are trying to talk with BEFORE that behavior causes the police to react they way they have to and which is the ONLY thing that's ever on video recorded by others on the scene.
There was just an incident in Detroit where a "citizen" actually pulled a gun out of his waistband and fired at short range at the officers. Other cops on the scene then shot and killed him.
And the "community's" reaction was that they didn't have to kill him. They could have shot him in the legs.
How far off in left field to find excuses and rationales and escape placing blame where it belongs can the "activists" possibly go?

lol, tell me when the video problems "get worked out". Audio is better evidence in most cases but the cops just beat people into confession with the camera's off.
