1. CMPD Chief Kerr Putney said only one body camera was on and working during a deadly police shooting last month
Chief Putney did not go into details about why the other body cameras did not have video, but he said if an officer does not turn a body a camera on, that’s a serious violation of policy.
On Tuesday morning, Chief Putney reacted to the body camera video that was released to the public. The video shows the moments before an officer shot and killed Danquirs Franklin.
“This is one of the most troubling videos I've seen,” Chief Putney said.
It raises the question about why there isn't body camera video available from another officer on scene. At this point in the investigation, Chief Putney is not saying whether the other camera malfunctioned or the officer did not turn it on.
“What I can tell you is one body camera was working,” Chief Putney said.

North Carolina's legislature gave final passage Tuesday to a bill to require doctors and nurses to care for babies born alive during a failed late-term abortion or face big penalties, a measure opponents deemed legally unnecessary and a threat to abortion providers.
House lawmakers followed a day after Senate counterparts in approving the bill, which would mean prison time and big fines for medical practitioners who don't give children born despite a botched abortion the same protections as any other newborn.
A spokesman for Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper criticized the measure later Tuesday, raising expectations the governor would veto the legislation.
"This unnecessary legislation would criminalize doctors for a practice that simply does not exist," Ford Porter wrote in an email.
