Roving Camera 2-20-20: To what extent do you think police corruption is a problem?
The Boston Police Department was the first police department. They were probable the first to be corrupt. It’s deep-seated, but I have confidence that the current administration is doing more about it than ever before. — George Halfkenny, Outreach Coordinator, Roxbury
It’s always been a problem, but there’s no mayor or governor who’s going to do anything about it. Look at the state police. — Anthony Howard, Self-Employed, Boston
It’s always been a problem. I hope it changes. Commissioner Gross is a good man, but corruption goes way deep. — Jones, Retired, Roxbury
I think there’s a lot of corruption. It’s under cover. I don’t think it will go away. It’s deeply embedded. — Charlene Russell, Administrator, Roxbury
It’s not as serious as it used to be. But there’s still a lot of people being shot for nothing. — Carey Harris, Retired, Mattapan
It’s always been a problem. Some officers are ok. Some shouldn’t be here. — Mike Watson, Hotel Worker, Roxbury
