Horrifying Police Body Camera Footage Clearly Shows Current State Of America

CINCINNATI—Following a traffic stop earlier this month by a University of Cincinnati police officer that ended in the shooting death of an unarmed black motorist, authorities confirmed Thursday that the disturbing video recorded by the officer’s body camera clearly and graphically shows the current state of America. “Thanks to this footage, everyone can see the brutal and unconscionable condition of the United States in the year 2015 with their own eyes,” said Hamilton County prosecutor Joe Deters, who noted that the violent nature of circumstances in America may make the footage disturbing for some to watch. “It’s stomach-turning to go frame by frame through this video and see the grotesque realities of our country unfold in such visceral detail. But it’s vitally important to have a visual record that tells the truth about this nation rather than be forced to trust the accounts of those who might have something to cover up. Without this video, we would be left to dispute about what really happens in America.” Deters added that, after watching the footage, it was hard to argue that the country was not to blame for the violence that was captured on film.

For those thinking this is a satire article. This has got to be the realest onion headline I’ve ever seen Umm this isn’t funny The satire is that it's the countries fault, and that nobody will hold the individual accountable for their actions. RIP Samuel DuBose Where is satire? I thought the Onion was supposed to write articles poking fun at reality.

Well where is the fucking video? American fuckin censorship again and again. Genuinely thought the Onion had some sort of 'real news' tab for this I don’t get it? I think it's time to rename the definition of The Onion from a sarcastic news source to a legitimate news source US media is so mess the onion start telling real news

When did you guys move to real news? When the looting starts, the shooting starts,” is a threat coined by Miami Police Chief Walter Headley, who promised violent reprisals on black protesters in 1967. He also said: “We don’t mind being accused of police brutality. They haven’t seen anything yet i don’t get it ?

sorry onion, real life already did it. Look I realise you've got to keep your batting average up to 30,000 murders per year but why this? In Australia, as bad as it got was a running gag about toilet paper across all networks. How I wish this WERE satire. Not now guys when the onion accidentally reports real news.

When this country falls apart as it inevitably will, I hope Canada swoops in to pick up whatever pieces are left. The world will be a much better place when all of North America is just Canada. Guys this isn’t satire, stop it tomservo10 This paper used to be read for entertainment. Now its some of the only news people can actually trust.

Aw. I miss my Honda Accord Wheres the satire I only see fax 2015 'Land of the Free' Easy solution. Don’t respond anymore, let the community leaders (of all communities) handle it. Some parts of me are thinking there will be a civil War of America in this decade. never thought i'd live in a world where the onion is a credible source of news

The car shouldn't have been standing there!! The Onion is once again too on point Cuz the cars black? I don’t get it Honestly, at this point the Onion is one of the few news sources I trust.

The Supreme Court Broke Police Accountability. Now It Has the Chance to Fix It.This week, after protests over George Floyd’s death, the Supreme Court may revisit a key doctrine shielding police officers. About time1 Wishful thinking Each department has the ability to make 'within scope' and/or 'color of authority' determinations -- both which removes the qualified immunity. So this USSC piece is a red herring.

George Floyd Protests Reveal America at a Boiling PointOutrage over the Minneapolis police killing of an unarmed black man, the latest in a string of racist attacks and incidents caught on camera, has spread from social media to the streets.
