PBA PRESIDENT ADDRESSES
THE EMERGENCE OF ARREST VIDEOS

 

PBA president Patrick J. Lynch said: 

“Videotapes never present all of the facts in a situation.  They never capture the criminal act or offense that brings police action to the scene.  They present an isolated period of a police interaction but never the entire scenario.  That’s why it is necessary when video tapes surface to have a complete review of the facts in every case before arriving at any conclusion.”
