    My concern is that this turns every officer into an NSA drone.
    The NSA are cops. You like cops. So what's your complaint?

    Who told you a single tool had to contain the whole story?

    The camera will have parts of the story, wittiness will have parts of the story, physical evidence will have part of the story, transaction histories will have part of the story....that's why we have criminal investigators.

    Wrong. Completely and utterly wrong. Their words have not been listened to, so now we must listen to their actions. We're simply getting a taste of what we asked for by having ignored their words for so long.

    It's gonna happen eventually regardless. Legally speaking it's insane they don't already have them.


    It would actually help the cops a lot more than the idiots who think it wouldn't help them understand. Then again, it'd remove a lot of bad cops as well.

    What is it that we have ignored then? Who is responsible for these people's lives? Not me. Not the government... who? Why should they be allowed to mess up my day or another person's business? They shouldn't. They should take responsibility for their lives, their communities and get good leaders to help them do that. The ones that they have no are crap and leading them the wrong way...

    You cannot find the answers to these questions for the same reason that a fugitive cannot find the police.

    And shame on you for playing the "responsibility" card and playing the blame game at the very same time.

    ummm... what?

    What? When people blame others for their irresponsibility I will call them on it... lack of education is huge. If people don't want a way out or a way to improve their lives it is not OK for them to later blame others for it. THAT, is crap.

    Exactly. In case I am wrong, though, read this.

    The lack of education is systematic and inflicted upon them. Look, the wonder is not that some blacks go insane and/or become criminals: The wonder is that some blacks, despite all the obstacles thrown in their way, rise up and somehow make it through. Whites cannot possibly understand what blacks have to go through just to get to an equivalent point in life as whites do. "Responsibility"...LOL...that word does not mean what you think it means.

    Absolutely.

    For one, potential criminals will know their actions will be on camera, submitted to the media and the courts. They cannot claim something which contradicts what was shown. This should reduce the bad behavior to the cops and increase compliance. Both of which saves their lives and law enforcement.

    Second, cops know their behavior is on record too, so it should reduce police brutality and excess use of force. My town had a mentally unstable elderly lady who was holding a piece of wood who the cops shot. That was excessive force. Being on camera and recorded would likely have prevented that.

    Third, knowing every law enforcement has video means that we should expect such videos in such cases. Failure to make them public unedited will create all sorts of red flags.

    It's in everyone's best interest to have these interactions on film.
