Best Actor: Officer Richard Pinheiro and other BPD officers

Police body camera footage can be the best evidence showing what really happened, and it depicted these officers either “planting evidence” or “re-enacting the legitimate finding of evidence” (which isn’t a real thing no matter what Commissioner Davis says) in a two-bit drug case. The cameras catch everything you do for 30 seconds before switching them on, and in this case the footage showed Pinheiro placing drugs in a soup can before going back and “finding” them.
