Editor's Note:

Check out the new BLUtube — redesigned just in time to be the destination for videos from National Police Week in Washington, D.C. We've added great new features like an updated player that lets you watch full screen videos, bookmarking links, and the ability to upload and watch high definition clips in the new HD topic.
