Due to bunch of police brutality and taser-brutality, head-cams will soon be coming to police officers everywhere to record “their” actions and of course, the criminals’.
We think that this could actually be more helpful for identifying bad cops than actually catching more bad guys, probably the point of this gadget.
I think Police brutality exists everywhere today and we have to stop unnecessary force of action by the police officers who abuse that power. Okay, your job is dangerous but that is no reason to taser down an old woman who can barely stand. (I hope my point taken here.)
I think it’s injustice that you can’t scream at police in America and tell them exactly how you feel because it’s considered “frightening” the police officer. Okay, I know you have a gun but heck, that doesn’t mean I can just shut up. :p
Yes, I still admire the good policemen who do “real” work and not just mess with the homeless but heck, we need this gadget today and now to stop police brutality forever and good. Yes, if you are a police officer and you do the dirty jobs of messing with people’s heads, please resign. 🙂 I’ve received enough unnecessary tickets in college, just because cops there have nothing to do but pull over students, SERIOUSLY! (Nothing like that happens anymore in San Francisco, except once by a young stupid cop, most cops are pretty cool in SF.)
We don’t yet know how much onboard memory the Taser International device takes, whether it can transmit footage wirelessly back to police headquarters, or how long its battery lasts. But when the Axon debuts sometime in the third quarter of this year, it should make evidence gathering, particularly in a scuffle, a lot more cut and dried, barring hiccups such as hardware failure, dead batteries, bad lighting, or an officer down.
