    Since when is the word of common people taken over that of a cop?

    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]
    1. I agree that all police officers should have to wear camera.

    2. As body cams become more pervasive, laws dealing with the privacy issues around them - including the privacy of the citizens they encounter - need to be created and tightened.

    3. I'm hesitant to agree with the statement "only bad cops should be worried" because it's the same argument people use when arguing that teacher tenure should be eliminated or that a teacher's job should be tied to test scores. The assumption being made about teachers is that only bad teachers would be fired if tenure was eliminated and if teaching jobs were tied to test cares. However, when you analyze that theory for a second more, you realize that's not the case. My guess is that 'good cops' have legitimate reasons to protest body cams as well for reasons that may not be obvious to the ordinary person.

    Departments that have implemented body cameras have yielded a reduction in complaints.

    That would cause me to enter the highest federal and state income tax bracket. I want to keep at least 50 cents of every dollar I earn.

    Some people have table top books on their coffee table while others have a table top bong. Which do you have ?
