Speak Up: Public shares comments on police body cameras

Posted

The first of two scheduled public comment sessions regarding police officers donning body-worn cameras in Delaware took place at the Dover Police Department on Thursday night, with an audience of five civilians at the start. The session was hosted by the Council on Police Training. The sessions are required by House Bill 195, which will bring state regulations for the mandated use of body-worn cameras by police.

  • If there’s nothing to hide, then there shouldn’t be an issue. Isn’t that what they say? — Matt Hickman
  • Don’t break the law(s), and no need for cameras. — Howard Gaines III
  • It’s not about hiding. More or less, it’s about the funding. You have to get the money in order to get the transparency. I feel all cops want the body cameras in the current environment we live in these days, where a narrative can be spun to make someone look bad only to be refuted by the use of said body cameras. Or they can catch officers if they are doing something nefarious. It goes both ways. Dover will do the right thing, I’m sure of it. — Daniel Korup
  • How about telling the thugs that they have to wear them to? — Willie Preacher

 

 

Most Delaware COVID hospitalizations were not fully vaccinated

The Delaware Division of Public Health reported that 85% of COVID-19 hospitalizations for Aug. 23-29 occurred in individuals who were not fully vaccinated against the virus. Of the 117 new hospitalizations that week, the most recent available data, 100 were unvaccinated or partially vaccinated, DPH said. Eight of the nine COVID-19-related deaths that occurred during the same time were unvaccinated individuals.

  • The statistics in this article make me sad. Those people protesting that their liberties are being violated should remember the statement in the Declaration of Independence, which is, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” What makes me maddest is that they are endangering my 2-year-old granddaughter with their thoughtless actions. They should be accountable for their actions, just as drug dealers are. — Richard Schwager
  • More spin. Vaccinated folks are also carriers, patients and can get reinfected. All it does is lessen the effects if your immune system isn’t naturally combative! — Howard Gaines III
  • Which part of the story isn’t true? — Michael McGaughey
  • We have gone through months of vaccinations, social distancing, disinfecting and the works. — Howard Gaines III
  • The story reported numbers. Are you saying the numbers aren’t true? — Michael McGaughey
  • Sources must be checked. Do you take everything on Facebook as true? — Howard Gaines III
  • Do you have a source that contradicts the numbers being reported by this news outlet? You said it was “spin.” What part of it is not true? — Michael McGaughey
  • Diversion. — Howard Gaines III
  • Trust the government, science and their water carriers. I’ll take a pass. Seen too many issues that don’t add up. Like vaccinated folks who still get sick, carry the virus and die from the vaccine. — Howard Gaines III
  • You don’t trust science? Do you think Facebook runs on magic? — Dale Bert
  • Do you think all science is good or safe? — Howard Gaines III
  • I don’t deal in absolutes. — Dale Bert
  • Are you going to answer the question? Where’s the spin? What’s false? Your opinions are not facts.— Frank Williamson
