      I support high quality dash recordings and body/lapel cams. I can tell you that this generation of equipment is of varied quality and that in varied lighting conditions it performs poorly. Camera...

      And these innacuracies only increase with traumatic events.

      This is a huge issue. Eye witness reports are proven to be frequently inaccurate. Even people of integrity misinterpret or misremember what they witness. Police are witnesses. Recordings, video...

      Body cams aren't the answer but they will help. A second viewpoint from a dash cam would have helped. I tracked down a better copy of the video and it's still not definitive. I'd say the AD after...

      Me neither. I'd like to see the slowed down tape as the prosecutor did. Here's one a jury will have to figure out.

      Likely that as the guy put it into drive, the officer reached in to stop him and it all went irretrievably wrong.

      I can't tell if the car is moving because the officer is moving so much and in a way a I wouldn't expect unless he was trying to reach in a stop a drive away, which is unbelievably stupid but happens...

      The video doesn't look good. I watched it a few times to try to figure out what happened. It looks like the driver decides to drive away instead of getting out, bad choice but not one that should...

      That one blows my mind.

      For people like me who like ugly old euro trucks, not getting stuck with a 25% tariff at customs is huge. 6,000 euro trucks end up costing 10,000 with shipping and tariffs.

      We have an 03 TDI 5 speed wagon with 230,000ish miles. It's getting a new turbo, did a fair amount of work on the transmission last year. I'd say that it is becoming an expensive car to keep on the...

      It is a Steyr-Puch Pinzgauer. Small military veh with an air cooled inline four and four wheel drive ala Tatra. Lockers all the way around. Prices seem to have stabilized in the 12-18,000 range.

      Props for someone living their dream. I'd agree that commentary while track driving was a bad call. I could tell immediately that he was in over his head. He was white knuckling it from the get go....

      As someone who currently lives off-grid with PV, a backup generator and lead acid batteries, I find this system intriguing. Lead acid batteries are a hassle, require constant upkeep and cost me...

      LE is changing, at an uneven pace depending on locale, but changing for the better. Unfortunately, these changes have been much slower than the change in how widely police are recorded and any...

      Larry, the interior is stunning. I'd at that your project is now the nicest of its kind.

      I've watched the video and dash video for this encounter. This shooting and aftermath are egregious police misconduct. With that being said, it's pretty clear that until he ran this encounter was...
