The police work for us. There job is to protect and serve. Transparency and accountability is the best path for improvement. I think if the video exonerated the police it would on every news station by now.
I agree that it probably would be best to release it.

But just because they don't doesn't necessarily mean it proves the cop was in the wrong. I believe the video in the Jonathan Ferrell death wasn't released until the trial and that did not help them get a conviction.
