    It would be impossible to get everyone to wear a camera, but cops can be required to do so as part of their well-paid job. Cameras on police cars and on officers are proven to reduce complaints against the police because both the police and the public behave better when they know they are being recorded. Video recordings allow for quicker dismissal of bogus claims of police misconduct and also aid in obtaining convictions.

    The police have a union, co-workers, management and government attorneys on their side and a system rigged to help them get away with it.

    "The police" are not "the psycho/sociopaths". Police officers no more try to "get away with it" than any other group.

    Most states have laws such as these two, and they are not always limited to traffic/driving.
    "2921.331 Failure to comply with order or signal of police officer.

    (A) No person shall fail to comply with any lawful order or direction of any police officer invested with authority to direct, control, or regulate traffic.

    (B) No person shall operate a motor vehicle so as willfully to elude or flee a police officer after receiving a visible or audible signal from a police officer to bring the person's motor vehicle to a stop.

    (C)(1) Whoever violates this section is guilty of failure to comply with an order or signal of a police officer.

    (2) A violation of division (A) of this section is a misdemeanor of the first degree."
    Lawriter - ORC - 2921.331 Failure to comply with order or signal of police officer.

    Maryland "Criminal Law
    Article 10-201). This statute states, in part, that, “A person may not willfully fail to obey a
    reasonable and lawful order that a law enforcement officer makes
    to prevent a disturbance to the public peace
    .” (Emphasis added). The statute further prohibits a person from making
    “unreasonably loud noise” to “willfully disturb the peace of another . . . .”

    All police Dept, Local, State and National should have to regardless if they want to.

    So, who your employer is should make a difference? What if your employer mistrusts you because someone you don't know, never met and probably don't agree with caused a major public relations incident?

    If my employer wanted to do that, that is his decision. If I don't like it I can stop working for him. All public employees action in their line of duty are in the public domain. There for if the the public wants them the be recoreded, their is nothing they can do about it. If the cops doesn't like he can stop being a cop.

    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.
    People do not have the same expectation, or right to privacy when working. Many workers are directly supervised by their boss and/or under video surveillance.

    So the truth is BS? You want to monitor police because of corruption and the possibility them killing someone innocent.

    By that measure, then socialist history proves the first we should monitor for such things would be socialist.

    In other words, when it comes to corruption and death, socialist are the last people who should be pointing fingers at others.
