    So every messure to silence these "social justice assholes" (whatever that is suposed to mean) and to get rid of bad apples should be welcome.

    Anecdotal, but it suffices.



    [...]

    So it is in Rialto, Calif., where an entire police force is wearing so-called body-mounted cameras, no bigger than pagers, that record everything that transpires between officers and citizens. In the first year after the cameras' introduction, the use of force by officers declined 60%, and citizen complaints against police fell 88%.

    [...]

    What happens when police wear cameras isn't simply that tamper-proof recording devices provide an objective record of an encounter—though some of the reduction in complaints is apparently because of citizens declining to contest video evidence of their behavior—but a modification of the psychology of everyone involved.

    I wonder how long it will be until the first privacy violation complaints hit the ACLU.

    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.
    Yep, it can. It sure would make the Michael Brown thing easier to judge. We'd see him coming at the officer (assuming he did), and we'd see what happened in between the two volleys of shots the officer fired. We'd know exactly what happened, or at least would have more information.

    I'm not the one who has a story and is sticking to it. Any evidence yet of what happened in between the two vollies the officer fired?

    And I am going by what the known evidence indicates.
    We already know that Brown continued toward the Officer.

    I'm going to use the analogy of the instant replay in American football. Everything that happens during the game is recorded and most of it is recorded by multiple high quality cameras. Based on a little bit of research it seems that the referees (cops) are right about 60% of the time. However, that rate is due to MULTIPLE (dozens) cameras being used. More often than not the view from a single camera is inconclusive. The result is likely to be the same with cops wearing cameras.
