A Brilliant Now This News Expose': Bodycam Catches Cop Planting Drugs During Traffic Stops

In US news, a Florida police officer has been arrested on felony charges after his own body camera revealed the cop planted drugs during traffic stops gone bad for at least a year. Police officers planting evidence is not unheard of, but a cop planting drugs on this many people is an extreme example of crooked cops and police corruption. The body cam arrest video, as seen in this Now This News clip, include traffic stops caught on tape where the Florida officer is seen planting drugs. The citizens caught in his scheme have seen their charges dismissed. 

"And this is just one of the hundreds of examples why people do not trust law enforcement." -Pirimid9 (YouTube) Sad. But I still would like to believe that honest cops (and law enforcement) outnumber dishonest ones; although it does also seem to be relative to the quality of life within particular areas of the country. And in the end, at least, the right thing was done in this situation, and a VERY bad cop was taken off the streets, and hopefully held accountable for all the lives he had ruined... 

Very important (and relevant) story that needed to be made manifest; as well as, a great piece of critical investigative reporting, that I just felt compelled to document here...
