    ... The thing is that you may not be suspected of having committed any crimes and still be a victim of police brutality. That's why cops should wear the cameras.

    It can be applied to any group that wishes to spy upon another group.

    Funny isn't how so many that complain about privacy are hopping on the band wagon to take away someone else's privacy and to foster mistrust. If a cop cannot be trusted to do his job correctly and honestly, then just like any employee of any company, he should be dismissed, not spied upon.
    Oh no! The main reason we're told to accept government interference and involvement and growth cannot be used against the government? Why what's good for the goose is good for the gander, yes?

    Government has no rights, and it was never an institution to trust; the founders warned us well about implicit trust in government.

    In retrospect, I'm starting to think you're right. Given some of the recent abuses and downright ****ups of the Ferguson PD, governments even at the city level have shown that they can't be trusted.

    If you go by body counts, it makes far more sense to monitor socialist than it does police. Unless of course they are police and socialist, in which case, just go ahead and remove the word justice from the dictionary.

    I say Yes.

    Besides eliminating the "he said, she said" involved in questionable shootings, it'd also 86 the crap complaints of police brutality.

    YES!

    They have them on the police cruiser's dash. Why not on the officer, himself? That would be the ULTIMATE protection for everyone concerned...MAYBE. Al Sharpton probably would contest what the camera sees.

    When cops falsify reports and lie it becomes extra sinister, everyone knows crooks lie. Most people think cops wouldn't. So we need extra measures of security. The burden of proving crap needs to fall on the cops and their word isn't enough. Average Joe doesn't go around falsely imprisoning people. A cop may.
    Just like you have some douche bags running off at the mouth on political forums.
