From the EDITOR’S Desk: Body cams tell us part of the story

Video from a body camera of a Rockwood police officer recently made the news when a former Roane State basketball player filed a $1.2 million lawsuit against the city of Rockwood alleging violation of his rights and excessive use of force.

The plaintiff in the case is using the video as evidence that he did not attack the officer before he was detained.

I’ve watched the video. It does not show the officer being attacked. It does show the plaintiff did not fully cooperate with the officer.
