This is a major step in the right direction to prevent police misconduct. Next steps: abolish civil forfeiture nationwide, mandatory body cams, etc.

The bodycams seem like a great idea and they do reduce complaints, but the cops just turn them off, or they miraculously malfunction when the want to go rogue.

  1. They shouldn't be able to be turned off.

  2. There should be safeguards on the cams that they beep or alert the department/officer if they malfunction/stop recording.

Agreed. I lived in Sanford fl, and even though it wasn't the police who caused the problem, they all started wearing body cams. Not to mention I never had a bad interaction with them

I think we can all agree that this is positive, it's usually poor people that police steal from because they don't have the time or money to deal with getting it back.

It's slightly better, they still want your stuff though. Highway men.
