One thought on “Smile for the body camera

  1. Big Al

    City Councilman Cecil Bothwell demanded that APD have body cameras, but now advocates for keeping the images they capture out of public view.

    No big surprise there. I am sure the public would LOVE to see what behavior the officer’s body cam would have captured during his recent arrest for drunk driving.

    I also wonder what the PUBLIC oversight committees (which Bothwell and his liberal anti-police cronies advocate) will think when they learn that they are being DENIED the images that would have helped them to reign in Asheville’s “brutal” police force.
