... that law enforcement, when watched, is more polite?
Earlier this year, a 12-month study by Cambridge University researchers revealed that when the city of Rialto, California, required its cops to wear cameras, the number of complaints filed against officers fell by 88 percentand the use of force by officers dropped by almost 60 percent. Watched cops are polite cops.I remember when a local law enforcement agency first got cameras, and when it came to bolstering the cop's version, cameras were the greatest thing since sliced bread. When cameras went against the cop's version, not so much. Lawdog, on Alan's Vicious Circle, talks a bit about how the camera is your friend or your enemy, depending on your actions.
