Today President Obama proposed $263 million in funding for law enforcement to help avoid another disaster like the ongoing mess in Ferguson, Missouri.
David Brin SAID:
Cop cams... a trend predicted way back in 1997... were resisted and resisted -- till they suddenly became a no-brainer obvious. Now: The Obama Administration is proposing " $75 million for a Body Worn Cameras Partnership, which would help states purchase and store the new equipment." Next step of course (also circa 1997)? Often-stopped youths will step out of the car armed... with their own cameras.
