Intermission: Squad Car Dash-Cam Catches Police Planting Evidence

by Wylie Overstreet

January 5, 2012

A black male is pulled over by police in Utica, New York. After searching the driver's vehicle, a police officer is clearly seen pulling a bag of some illegal substance from his pocket (0:59) before placing it inside the car. The sheer audacity of the officer is shocking; he cavalierly disregards—and breaks—the law he's sworn to uphold. But what's most chilling is to think about the what-ifs... had the squad car pulled a few inches further forward, the angle would've hidden the crime, and the victim would've gone to jail for no reason. It makes you wonder how many times the same thing has happened without being caught on tape.
