The officer was apparently unaware his body camera saves the first 30 seconds of video prior to activation. So he hid the drugs in an alley, walked back to the street, turned his camera on then acted like he was going to go search the alley. With two more officers going right along with the whole thing.

Bonus Dickery: They still let the officer in question testify as a witness in another case without notifying the defense attorney in that case.

Body cameras need to be on at all times. Turning them off should be a felony. The film should be encrypted so it can't be tampered with. Few spoiled it for the rest but they can no longer be trusted. It's as simple as that

Those officers should all be charged with conspiracy to commit false imprisonment.

For me is OK if they are framing real bad guys.

You know that some of the bad guys are very smart and are hard to caught red handed.

And then there are some bad guys who aren't all that smart, but still thought ahead to wear a badge first.

Breaking the law to catch a bad guy MAKES YOU a bad guy, by definition.

If people want police to not do stuff like this, and the police don't want to be someone's target for revenge, BOTH sides need to cool it and practice restraint.

That's nothing. Police also sometimes throw down a gun when they kill someone to claim they were armed and threatening.

But obviously, it's just part of the struggle against criminals to also worry about keeping them from abusing the system by infiltrating a police position.

Yeah, nothing could possibly go wrong with a justice system that's permitted to make up evidence against anyone it thinks is a "real" bad guy.

What?

If people don't want police to break the law they need practice restraint?

Can we go one day without a story like this? It cant be that hard to just keep officers within the confines of the very law they enforce.

Eh, there's always the vague chance that the person planting the evidence is wrong. That's why we have trial and procedure, to minimize the risk of a unlawful arrest and imprisionment.

define "bad guy"
because if we are just going off breaking the law then that would also make the perpetrator of said framing a bad guy too
so then it would be okay to frame him/her for something he/she may or may not have done too
and then we could frame the person who framed the person who framed the original "bad guy"
its like a conga line of "justice"
