Should police have cameras recording their work at all times?

stevez67 Let's be fair (285 comments)

Everyone who thinks police should be subjected to wearing a camera every second they're on duty should also have to wear a camera while at work. If the excuse of "justice" applies to the police, it should apply to everyone.

stevez67 A rose by any other name (218 comments)

Using an app to find and get into a car with someone you don't know is little more than hitch hiking. And we all know how safe THAT is. Dressing it up in false libertarianism and anti-government paranoia doesn't make it any better or safer. And the 2008 financial crisis should have taught us something about relying on the free market to keep things under control.
