Earlier today I published the eighth installment of Real World Police: Roadcam, a three-week-old series that is one of the rewards for supporters on Patreon. (Along with other exclusive and early-access content, and more.) Put simply, Roadcam is one of the ways I try to say thank you to the channel’s generous backers.
About an hour after I published today’s installment I received a message from a new supporter. She wrote “I have to tell you. I love the Roadcam videos. I actually just rapid fire binged watched them all and want the next one already! I wanted to let you know, though, that when I joined on Patreon I had no idea what these videos even were. IMO, you should occasionally show a video or two publicly on the channel so people can see them. I for sure would have signed up sooner had I known!”
I’m all for it! It’s really something I should have done weeks ago. So, better late than never: here is Roadcam #1. Tomorrow morning I will share another. Enjoy!
The scoop on how this series came to exist:
In this channel’s never-ending pursuit of the absolute best police videos, I often come across footage such as you see in this video — typically held by the police department that investigated the incident or accident, although sometimes acquired through other avenues.
A couple of months ago I shared a similar video with Patreon supporters and asked whether they thought the video belonged on Real World Police. Their unanimous and likely-correct answer was “no.” At least not without context sufficient to show the video’s nexus with the channel’s purpose.
But one of the messages I got alongside that was something like: “But… y’know… uhhh… we wouldn’t mind seeing it here!”
And thus Real World Police: Roadcam was born. This is Roadcam #1.
