Should the public start wearing body cams?

Post by dancer_rnb » Sun Mar 25, 2018 6:39 pm

I'm hearing a fair amount about cops being being caught lying by surveillance cameras. Also about cops turning off their body cameras. Should the public start wearing their own body cameras?
There is no such thing as "politically correct." It's code for liberalism. The whole idea of "political correctness" was a brief academic flash-in-the-pan in the early 1990's, but has been a good conservative bugaboo ever since.

I think in many places body-cams are illegal. I noticed the other day coming through passport control that there was a big sign saying "no cameras or phones". Personally I don't see any justification for banning them.

Aren't most people today carrying cameras?
