VIDEO CAMERAS FOR ALL POLICE OFFICERS – police accountability

“Police are less violent when they are being recorded.” Back in the old day we used to spend days hearing from numerous witnesses in a voir dire hearing to determine if an accused person’s statement/confession was voluntary or induced by threats, violence or promises by the police. We don’t do that anymore because the video recording of all statements are now standard procedure and the ability to watch the interview precludes the need for evidentiary hearings in most cases. It assists in the search for truth. Requiring all police officers to wear video cameras in all interactions with the public is only the next logical step and it is now long overdue.
