OPD bought the cameras to help ensure that officers do not violate people’s constitutional rights. In addition, a controversy has erupted as to whether the unidentified officer should be allowed to view the video before giving his official statement to investigators about what went down. OPD brass say the cop should see the video, but civil rights activists contend that the officer might change his story to match what was filmed.
