It seems that cops with wearable video cameras are a win/win, for us and for them.
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 percent and the use of force by officers dropped by almost 60 percent. Watched cops are polite cops.
The good officers also benefit; they are better protected from bogus complaints against them.
The benefits to the public are not hard to imagine. Cops are flawed human beings too; some of them are very flawed indeed.
