Police Body Cam Leads to Firing of Georgia Fire Captain

Krystal Cathcart later filed a written complaint, which included a warning about making a false sworn statement. She claimed Sgt. Floyd created "a sense of fear" at the scene, cussed her out twice, telling her to "back the f--- up" or he will throw her in the "back of my squad car." More Here.

I'm glad to see the body cams being used , people lie to get themselves out of trouble and the cameras show what really happens. Once they saw the video , they recanted their stories but still maintained a "threat of terror" existed. I didn't see anything about either of them that even remotely resembled fear. The officer had every right to ask her to move , she was hovering on one side of him while his attention was on the man inside the vehicle on his other side. Cops are the ones who don't feel safe anymore and have every right to feel that way.

I would have called for back up and arrested her for obstruction. She has to do what the officer requests of her. Again thinking they are above the law, no one is.

Body cams were suppose to catch bad police but they are catching the true problems, the perps.

Noone should be allowed to distract an officer, and unfortunately all states do not have laws protecting against this. More power to the Fire Chief for not allowing skullduggery.
