Cop Cams (I'm Sorry For The Controversial Topics!!)

Postby SleepyChimera » Fri Apr 07, 2017 2:04 pm

More interesting articles from ArsT. I find this very surprising but very applaud worthy on Taser/Axon's part. I think it shows a sense of responsibility, even if for a possible selfish sense of not wanting to be tied to the concept of a "bad cop"

Wow, one thing is for sure: that is a heck of a power move from a business standpoint.

Yeah that's definite. I can see so many possible good or bad scenarios for this. It's so convoluted in a sense that it's hard to say whether the pro of 100% cam coverage (on a high level, I know there are cons to that), are worth the possible risks of Taser pretty much "owning" all security footage ever.

Edited: But hey, virtual evidence would make trials a LOT faster and more determinate.... in theory.

I am all for body cams, I guess I don't care how it happens either by business donations or taxes. There is very strong evidence that cops with body cams do better policing.
