Unfortunately it seems in the African-American community many of us are becoming victims to the fatal killings behind the hands of those who are sworn to protect us. To many, the police culture is under scrutiny, because of the militarized practices towards civilians, and now the gap between us is wider than ever. Police-Community relationships are hanging by a thread, demands of released footage after fatal shootings are becoming all to often common. Will this act of transparency help bridge the gap?
Recently, after public shaming, the Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department (CMPD) released the dash-cam video of the shooting of Keith Lamont Scott. Could releasing the video sooner discourage others from violent protest, how soon should the police department release fatal shootings to the public? Should they release the video at all?
