Are Police Body Cameras the Answer? Or a New Problem?
If you are a person who believes that body cameras for police are the answer to improved police conduct, consider this: what are we going to do with all of this video? We have to store it and we have to release it under the Freedom of Information laws, subject to exceptions in that law […]
