"St. Louis, MO — Surveillance footage is playing a crucial role in the case of a woman who claims St. Louis Police are trying to get away with a hit-and-run after they side-swiped her car, and then said she was at fault. The incident, which was caught on video, provides the perfect example of why people don't trust police.
The incident occurred around 3 a.m. on July 26, when an unnamed St. Louis police officer's patrol car collided with a 2004 Nissan Maxima, taking out the driver's side mirror in the process. The officer never reported it, and never was going to report it — because he did not count on Danielle Allen having surveillance cameras in front of her home."
What's wrong with this situation:
- Cop driving the car should, but won't, be charged with the crime of hit and run
- Typical for police department to deny liability in a case so clearly their fault
- Predictable that the moment the local media starts sniffing around they immediately start reconsidering their position to avoid bad press
- These are the people we've entrusted to carry badges and guns and trust that the words that come out of their mouth is true without any corroboration
Lucky for lady the misconduct was caught on video because it negates the officer's false narrative that they write in their report.
