Yeah but the difference is we are begging for more cameras.
They dont want to force on us they want to create situations where we are begging for more.

Damn this one was good.
Obama plans to issue an executive order before the end of February 2015, directing federal agencies to improve the way in which local law enforcement agencies procure, audit and manage a giant stockpile loaned and purchased from the Pentagon. However, the White House said the programs would remain in place.
Obama is also separately calling for a $263m, three-year spending package to reform police departments across the country which, if approved by Congress, could lead to the purchase of an additional 50,000 lapel-mounted cameras to record police officers on the job.

I think Police In General should have cameras on them at all times. Maybe it'll cause them to protect and serve rather than harass and abuse.
I wonder what this will do to the "widows and orphans" fund? It'll probably get collected during off duty hours now
But Rialto's randomised controlled study has seized attention because it offers scientific – and encouraging – findings: after cameras were introduced in February 2012, public complaints against officers plunged 88% compared with the previous 12 months. Officers' use of force fell by 60%.
