    Same adage can be applied to NSA Surveillance and the Patriot Act. Should we also apply it to the military? National Guard? Government employees who handle sensitive documents? Once you begin, where does it end? You support this, but someday those politically opposed to you will be in power again. You set the precedence, how can you then claim they are wrong?

    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.

    Who here wouldn't mind having their whole day video taped? You can't even fart in private.

    I guess I vote Yes, but there is just something about it that bothers me a little.
    Were I work I have to go thru 6 security points before I get to my work area. We are under constant video in certain areas. It would not bother me at all to wear a camera. 50% of the doors I enter or egress keep a record of me being in that room. I have nothing to hide while at work and neither should LEO's.

    LEO's operate under a different guideline though... as a teacher I would not be videoed if for no other reason than the privacy of my students... same can be said when I was a fire fighter or a bartender...

    Those who have nothing to hide , hide nothing.
    LEO's should be held to a higher standard and to keep them in check.

    I assume, then, you are opposed to police dash cams?

    Unless you are taking a s*** there is no reason to expect privacy while on the job.

    My department hasn't mandated it but I do. I think it's a good idea. It would protect the police as much as it would the society. I voted yes.
