NSFL. Cops throw a kid in the back of the van, unsecured. They slam the brakes on, and he rockets forward and breaks his neck. They offer no help and despite him telling cops he was injured they dragged him into a holding cell. He is permanently paralyzed.

Our provincial cops are going for a similar vibe.

Keeping an eye on this seizure. “Driving with cash” seems to be the crime.

The Nieves family says their son is a straight-A student, a three-sport athlete and is active in his church youth ministry.

This is nice, and something to be proud of, but has zero effing bearing on what the cop did. The cop didn’t stop the kid and ask for his GPA before assaulting him.

As in “tell me we all know there’s racial bias in the system without telling me there’s racial bias in the system.”

It’s easy to miss that the police killed this kid.

Does the LAPD have “get out of ticket/jail” courtesy cards, similar to the ones handed out by the NYPD to family and friends?

Personally I have no idea

Any Angelenos care to weigh in here?

I ran across the raw video today. Hats off to the teens who stood up for the victim.

What kind of questions do the police departments have for you?

Oh, it’s a huge commitment for these departments. We have ultimate editorial control over what appears on the air. So we sit down in a room with the police department and say, “Hey, we’re gonna rig a bunch of your cars with cameras. We’re going to have some camera people running around and capturing everything you do in real time, unedited. And ultimately what makes air is at the production company’s discretion.” [laughs] The departments do get to weigh in on certain things — [anything that] would compromise operational security and things like that.

What’s in it for them is the transparency and the accountability. All the departments that we talk to and who want to do the show, they believe in the background and the training of the men and women in uniform that are with their agencies. There might be some foibles here and there, there might be some moments that aren’t perfect and pretty, but on balance, you’re going to see what these officers are up against. The community is ultimately, typically sympathetic to what they’re seeing.

Right before Live PD was canceled, it came under fire for destroying footage of an incident where an Austin man died in police custody in 2018. Dan Abrams told us that On Patrol: Live will have a more flexible retention policy, especially when producers have footage of extraordinary circumstances. What can you tell us about that?

The [30-day] retention policy is in place. There’s only so much content we can hold on to at any given time, but obviously in situations where something is particularly sensitive, we’re going to hold on to that footage until we can have that transparently resolved and addressed. It’s always going to be on a case-by-case basis… We’re never going to be exploitative. We’re never going to show something that is traumatic, out of respect to all parties concerned, but we would try to find a way to air the footage in a responsible and respectful manner to address the situation.

That’s awesome. Totally dystopian.
