But when probers went to retrieve video of the men, they discovered that it had been “overridden,” he said.

    You guys are hilarious. It’s a store security camera. It’s very, very possible that it is automatically set to rerecord over past footage, because that’s what it’s supposed to do if footage is not needed.

    The Huffington Post does the same thing. Selectively edit what gets shown to its readers to whip everybody up into a partisan frenzy.

    I believe there’s something called “Tampering With Evidence,” and if memory serves, I believe it is still considered a very serious crime in this country – I may be wrong and only applies to us the little people, the stupid ones that pay taxes, but then again…

    Not a surprise at all. Unions are corrupt and will take cities down into financial ruin, and they could care less.
