The problem is when you deal with Police it could be the worst moment of your life.
Nobody wants to see that moment on Youtube.
There are some real Privacy concerns.
FORT WORTH -- The Fort Worth Police Department is putting 400 new body cameras on the streets.
'We now have more cameras deployed than any other law enforcement agency in the U.S.,' said FWPD Police Chief Jeff Halstead.
Fort Worth is considered such a leader in the trend that it has trained seven other departments in the use of body cams. Cops from Canada and Scotland come to town in the next few weeks.

Although I get the idea I think its absolutely asinine. How about we just screen police officers better? Or end the war on drugs? Either of those would do about as much good as those cameras.
My fear, you know, living in a bonafide police state, is in the end those cameras will be used against us and NOT the police.
Yes, boys and girls, beg for more. That's why betting against humanity is so profitable. What's the name of the camera company?

I would also like to add that if an officer messed with/turns off a wearable camera, he should be terminated no questions asked.
