Than swap out dash cams with ring door bells, I'm not going to comment on the police from USA but UK police like to have reasonable evidence that they can use in court.

No, swap out your flippant attitude with a more interested and caring one.

You can't be reductive with the corrupt police issue, and the UK's are no different than the U.S.'s or anywhere else's. I bet you'll dispute that point though, and not address the fact that police dismissal of video evidence has nothing to do with technology.

lol. The UK’s issues are EXTREMELY DIFFFERENT from those of the US.

Not to mention, how decentralized the US is. It's even in the country's name. United States. Which means the police force over in bugtussle, missouri, is going to be a lot different than the police force over in Seattle Washington. Even the police force over in bellevue, Washington is going to be different than the police force over in seattle, washington. Even though they are in the same metropolitan area.

No, they're not. That's the thing. They're not different due to a nationwide effort for the past century or so to homogenize and militarize the U.S police force. Everyone gets put through the same "warrior" training that involves traumatizing new officers by making them watch videos of cops get violently murdered. Nationwide, we cull recruits that score too highly on intake tests. Nationwide, cops are from outside the county or town they work in to help them Other people.

The bare details like "which cop gang do these cops belong to?" Might change, but that's about it.

"Nationwide, cops outside the county or town they work in help them"

I can think of many communities where you have to have a four year criminal justice degree, and residency requirements to serve in their communities. The states where they don't have either of those things, is where you find more corrupt police. My state has a four year degree requirement, but not a residency requirement. Before they repealed The residency requirement, cops were actually quite decent.

As I said I won't comment on police in the USA and I won't argue with you, you came to a thread with the discussion being about how deep fakes may impact the judicial system and you don't feel that before deep fakes become troubling that they cared about video evidence in the first place.

What point could I possibly provide that would make you feel differently, your either looking for a non rational argument or you are non rational yourself.

What is it you think you're doing now?

Address the counter-claim. Address the statement, "Police don't ignore dashcam footage because its origin cannot easily be proven, it's ignored because police are corrupt and are trying to protect their friends".

Address it. If you have the courage.
