Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Cameras and the Police
It seems that one of your concerns is simply that police get a fair shake and some respect for the complexity and danger involved in what they do. That's fair. On the flip side, however, ar...

Re: Re: Cameras and the Police
I'm sure it's frightening for an officer to know that a subtle camera angle or ommission could convict or exonerate them, but the same goes for the person on the other end. I think it ne...
