    You mean sends it to a "cloud?" That happened already. Police seized someone's Ipad and - what do you know - there was no video. But his Ipad had already sent a backup to his "cloud."

    Oops.

    The officer who seized his camera should be prosecuted for the crime of tampering with evidence, regardless of what the video showed. But won't be.

    Not his personal 'cloud'...way too easy to hack. I store NOTHING of value in the Cloud.

    I am talking about a secure, third party, storage organization that will store your video data from your camera (as you record it - for a small fee) for a certain period of time. Guarantees someone else cannot erase the data.

    I'm wondering what the point is if our court system won't hold cops accountable for their actions.

    As it now, a police officer can say you said anything the officer wants to say you said - and claim he saw anything he wants to claim you saw. Thus he can claim you gave a spontaneous confession, had slurred speech, made threatening motions - or anything - and it your word against the cops.

    The camera documents was actually was said and actually seen. Opposition to that camcorder is opposition to the truth.
    The camera is only going to have part of the story. It's a reasonable tool to use but it can cause as much trouble as it stops.

    Yeah, for some reason.....they don't see that the cops wont have the discretion to let somebody go anymore.

    Re: Should policemen wear body cameras?

    Someone made a pretty good point that with no indictment for the chokehold, something that was clearly shown on video, if that couldn't get an indictment what good will body cams do?

    (I am still for them! )

    And I have to wonder how many times the camera will be off or have a low battery or will be malfunctioned, right at the critical time.

    But, it is a step in the right direction and the right thing to do for all parties concerned, I just hope we won't see the above mentioned abuses.

    It begs the question though: "can police ever be indicted under any circumstance?"

    Thx
