REPOST – Body Cameras Worn by Police Officers Are No ‘Safeguard of Truth,’ Experts Say By VIVIAN YEE and KIRK JOHNSON 11:30 AM (via NYTIMES NOW app)

Sorry, the The New York Times article i linked on Facebook was pulled from their main site for some reason; it still shows in a Google Search, but the link is broken. (i’m hoping it’s not because they fact checked it, and found out VIVIAN YEE & KIRK JOHNSON didn’t know what they were talking about). In an attempt to relay the information in the article, I cut and pasted from my NY Times Now App & re-posted it here: http://wp.me/p3rdk6-1J

I don’t know if i’m all for the Body Cameras, or not – it seems a little bit of over surveillance of the population to me – and we know how government likes to have cameras everywhere. I just know that we are going to have a different type of testimony in the future. It will be corrupted, because, government tends to corrupt things, but i suppose, at least for the most part – in the overall grand scheme of things – we can get around the he said she said.

i find it odd that a society that lies as much as ours does, is looking for truth in video. Don’t they know we’re really good at creating spin?
