Cameras aren't perfect, but they are a damn good place to start. Perhaps they could roll the entire time officers are on duty. That would solve the audio problem until the next generation of cameras.

By the way, attitude does matter, but cops need to learn to de-escalate situations. People shouldn't get the death penalty for a bad attitude.

In addition to training, perhaps the way they hire people needs to change. Women are much less likely to use a gun and it has been shown that they much better at calming down a tense situation.

Perhaps they ought to also hire the most intelligent police officers available. Some people have been excluded because their IQ was "too high." There is a link between lower IQs and prejudice.

Additionally, I am a teacher, a job that is traditionally linked with low IQs. Mine has been measured in the top 1% but I feel totally out of my league as a teacher. Trying to get to know and motivate all of my students and how to explain things in a way that they can understand and remember is incredibly difficult - almost as difficult as being a police officer. It's almost as if cops need to have the skills of a psychiatrist with a fraction of the time to gather information and a death penalty for an improper diagnosis. We need to respect the difficulty of the job and continue to train with better (less militaristic) techniques.

BLT, I agree that it could help for police to have cameras, but this report by NPR explains why it isn't a perfect system with current technology. The thing that stood out the most for me is the camera officers wear doesn't record sound for the first 30 seconds, so the context of an early encounter is lost. Who said what and with what kind of attitude is key to fully understanding what happened.

The money they are spending on armored vehicles and automatic weapons would cover that I think. They damn sure don't need that shit.

Just Wondering: There was another officer involved shooting in FL. I forget where at the moment. I was wondering how many people would consider a one cent tax increase to get all officers fitted with cameras. Some police departments are saying they cannot afford cameras. This would be one way to alleviate that reason for not getting them.

yet more reasons to be happy about not facebooking.

JW if the folks who send those half sentence messages via birdie do so en masse, and if so what their reply/success rate is. for me it's an automatic delete.

Most of the people that come up for me I already know; mostly friends of my kids.

Why does the "People you may know" section on Facebook look like a line up of hookers.
