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?
No question in my mind that the police should wear such devices. Look at all the trauma it would have saved in the Mike Brown case.
I would say yes because whenever there is a camera around people act differently. But I would also say that the training officers receive might be revised if they are trained to killed unarmed individuals or use excessive force.
