Brownson: Deliberations easier if police had video

Kneale Brownson,

I just served on a jury for a case in which the only evidence presented was the observations of two Frisco police officers. Included in that testimony was the report that Frisco police cars no longer have video cameras aboard for cost savings.

They probably could have saved the costs of the trial, and they certainly would have made our deliberations easier, had there been video evidence to back up the words of two fairly inexperienced officers.
