About seven minutes after Sacramento police fatally shot an unarmed black man in his grandmother’s backyard last week, officers were instructed to mute their body cameras.
‘It builds suspicion’
According to Sacramento police spokesman Sergeant Vance Chandler, he mentioned as follows. “There are a variety of reasons why officers have the opportunity to mute their body-worn cameras.” That’s all that was said about it. Yet, when Vice News asked for a comment from the department, it didn’t immediately respond. The department has refused to identify the officers. However, Vice News reports that they’ve been placed on paid administrative leave.
