    False and silly characterization of Excon. Might as well say about you that you propose that cops are always wrong and nothing they do is justified.

    That means whatever a cop sees during the course of their working day will be on film and preserved as evidence, correct? Cops will never again be allowed to let something slide. So you can forget about leniency. Also, other crimes will be captured that the cop himself doesn't notice. Can the police then start sending fines out like the red light or speed cameras?

    So maybe sometime down the road cameras should be required for everyone.

    It would help sort ot domestic/neighbor disputes, home invasions, etc.. before LE arrives.

    Umm, the first time a cop's camera records inside someone house?

    On the street, in a public place, there's no expectation of privacy, so recording you it not a violation. In your own house, police present or not, that may be another matter.

    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.
    That's the whole point.

    Do you realize how much this is going to cost the tax payers ? There are going to be so many slam dunk convictions that they are going to have to build new prisons to hold all of these criminals who are going to be caught on video. No more claiming police brutality as a defense. Just the drunk driving convictions will increase ten fold because of the cameras.

    They are required to follow the law.

    I also see many conspiracy theories resulting from expanded use.

    How do we know the "govt" didn't edit the footage or inserted images to fit their side of things.

    It just will add another layer of evidence custody trail to account for.

    Dont care. You know how much lawsuits, and situations like Ferguson "cost the tax payers"?

    There are going to be so many slam dunk convictions that they are going to have to build new prisons to hold all of these criminals who are going to be caught on video.
    Or are going to cost the prison industrial complex because of all the ones that are found innocent!

    No more claiming police brutality as a defense. Just the drunk driving convictions will increase ten fold because of the cameras.
    Well these videos should back up those officer claims who are"just doing their job" then right? Less lawsuits and appeals!
