Welcome to THEJNSREPORT’S: Body Cameras: To Cam or Not to Cam? That is The Question!
Will 1 in 7 cops where body cameras? And even if they do, does that mean they can’t turn them off manually or refuse to record an encounter in public, especially if they know that the camera will capture everything raw in its actual occurrence or manifestation where no spin can be applied?
We all saw on camera 5 to 6 NYPD cops murder Eric Garner in broad day light captured by a private citizen 3rd party via cell phone. What has happened to those officers? Nothing.
There’s no accountability for their recorded actions so what good will body cameras do if they can be turned off selectively. We’ll get edited footage or no footage if it doesn’t favor the officers. Cameras won’t stop anything or will they?
What’s your thought on this incoming wave of more surveillance?
