WHAT’CHA GONNA DO?
Police officers see people during what are arguably the lowest points in their lives — in the throes of domestic violence, mental illness, homelessness and drug addiction.
So should a person have control over whether those scenes are broadcast live across the country? And should a government be allowed to censor the reality of what its officers see every day?
Those are two major questions driving an ordinance recently proposed in the city of Spokane that would restrict how REALITY-BASED POLICE SHOWS interact with local law enforcement.
