So, essentially what is being said is that bodycameras do reduce the incident of racial profiling, when officers are held accountable for their actions and being filmed. That is the intent of the cameras. Not just to document arrests, but also to document the abuse civilians.
What is needed are comparative analysis of the data, before and after body cameras. Number of citations, number of complaints against the CSPD, Percentage of Race/Gender of citations issued from 2010-2015 vs 2015-2016. From there a comparative analysis can be made. Not just cherry picking the stats that favor the CSPD.
