    The thing is.

    A cop is obliged to enforce the law. Something I mentioned in my previous post and which you either ignored or dont understand the concept of.

    It means that he has to be held accountable to the highest ethical standards and has to follow these standards when interacting with the community.

    Otherwise, the trust in authorities by the community is destroyed.

    Secondly. Your assertion is absurd. As it has also been said that I think Police can do no right.
    So can your bs.

    I believe all police departments should have to wear body cameras, it not only brings more accountability to the department, but can be a protection against police brutality. This department definitely needs to wear cameras, hell all departments should. Only bad cops should be worried about body cameras. [/FONT]
    I can agree that the cameras are a good idea.

    On the flip side, cameras can show how some citizen when engaged by the police can be total jerks, esculate the situation, threw the first punch, ect.

    So it can be a protection against false police brutality claims. Just saying.

    imo, cameras can help the public as well as LE.

    The trust of the police by various communities is being destroyed by a small number of bad cops and a large number of "social justice" assholes who choose to make a mountain out of every molehill they come across.

Hell, we could just mandate that all collected video be collected by the NSA and processed through a threat analysis program and we could stop crime before it even [maybe] happened!
    I imagine that it will only be a matter of time before anything anyone does in public will be monitored and recorded. With technology advancing suspects and criminals will be immediately recognized by recognition software and law enforcement deployed to apprehend them. A good things for victims but not so good for our privacy.

    Good. We need to start holding our law enforcement accountable.
