Minneapolis Police Department are releasing the Body Worn Cameras (BWC) from Police Officers who were involved in a Shooting that caused the death of a civilian yesterday. That is exactly how it should be done.
The Half Moon Bay May 5, 2020 Homicide of Sandra Lee Harmon by San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies who claimed a Shootout was very different, so much so that the City Council asked the Attorney General to conduct an Independent Criminal Investigation of the Sheriff’s Office. Sheriff Bolanos promoted a story that his deputy didn’t turn on his BWC and since has refused to provide the AXON Log Records which would prove his deputy’s story. Sheriff Bolanos did not ask his deputy to take a Polygraph Test regarding his alleged failure to turn on the BWC. Also Sheriff Bolanos released a highly edited and Captioned video 45 days later which does show that Sandra Lee Harmon was fired at while she was unarmed with hands above her head. She died from 3 FATAL shots in her back.
