    Because police are authorized to use up to and including deadly force against citizens of the United States of America and no other job entails that. That's why.
    Well, everyone is authorized the same as police, but no other job is similar to theirs.

    And that is very good for them... it would help the public trust them when they make claims, to be honest.

    Bartenders and teachers can use deadly force to get a person to comply to their orders? Seriously... ? Didn't know that.

    Cops can only shoot in defense, same as everyone else.

    With guns maybe... tasers, bean bags, rubber bullets and tear gas at the drop of a hat. And the issue wasn't about just deadly force, it was about power over the public. Nobody can stop you but a cop. Nobody can get a search warrant or hand cuff you but a cop. Nobody can demand you do a DUI check or stay put but a cop. Don't listen? Hand cuffs. Taser. Shooting. The self defence and just ifcation come later. THAT is why they need cameras.

    I agree with that. But they are no more "authorized to kill Americans" than any other citizen.

    I said that, "police are authorized to use up to and including deadly force against citizens of the United States of America and no other job entails that. " I did not say that they are "authorized to kill Americans", at least not in the thread of the argument that you are debating...

    Of course the police should wear them.

    They already have them in their cars, why not on their person?

    I suspect the majority of the police officers against it will be those with something to hide (corruption and/or incompetence).

    Sure they are, through their votes, where they put the system in place. Or didn't you get that?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Yes and the video should be streamed to a 3rd party where it is screened and stored in multiple sites.There should also be cameras in the cop cars to capture difference angles inside and outside the car. That said I find it hard to believe the word of a cohort and alleged 3rd party witness.And I seriously doubt a cop would just unload his gun on someone for no reason.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
