Officers forgot to turn their body cams off.
Constable Curtis Traylor-Harris got a lousy 5 years probation, despite further investigation showing the police involved had looted homes before. Additionally, he wore his uniform despite being on suspension and further demanded as a fellow cop he get out of a speeding ticket while suspended.
