Should all police officers be required to wear body cameras?


Earlier this year The Wall Street Journal reported in Rialto, CA where an entire police force is wearing so-called body-mounted cameras that record everything that transpires between officers and citizens. In the first year after the cameras' introduction, the (use of force by officers declined 60%), and (citizen complaints against police fell 88%) Do you think this program should be rolled out nationally? If not, why not?

    I would add one more thing: This isn't a new thought, but no toy gun should be allowed to look like the real thing ... ever. The solution is simple and doesn't cost anything ... manufacture them in an iridescent color like yellow or green.
