  • As City Council and public clamor for police body cameras, mayor hires group to clarify questions raised

    As City Council and public clamor for police body cameras, mayor hires group to clarify questions raised
    The video, posted on YouTube, shows the kind of behavior police officers sometimes encounter. A woman in a Lincoln Town Car says she doesn’t know why she was pulled over, but her car is facing oncoming traffic. The police ask for her license and that she turn the car off. She shifts it into park, shuts it off, then says “no sir,” starts it up, drops it in drive, floors the gas pedal, and spins the car 270 degrees before speeding the wrong way down a major street. The cops catch up to her after she hits a pole and takes off running. An officer yells at her to stop, warning that he’ll tase her if she doesn’t. She doesn’t; he tases her, and the video ends with her face down on the sidewalk.
