Body CAM best idea
23 February 2018 | by See all my reviews

After watching the community complain about the shooting of Nate Wilks I searched for videos and still images of body cam footage. REALLY? You can quite CLEARLY hear the officers telling him to stop and drop the gun...he does neither...then you can CLEARLY see the gun in his hand as he turns toward the officers right before they fire on him. Deadly force totally justified here.
