officers would be under a huge amount of scrutiny and pressure at all times.

They are only human and every small misdemeanor will be blown out of proportion.
Also, i just don't like the idea of even more camera's watching the public.
Sure we are arguing that this will be used to protect the public but you can rest assured it will be used by the authorities for operations against the people as well.
How many of you arguing the case for every officer to have a camera are outraged when officers show up at peaceful rallies and start filming the protesters?
Unless you have committed a crime, you should be afforded the right to privacy.
Also officers deal with sensitive information and witness some graphic scenes.
If it was all being streamed live how would we censor and afford people the right to privacy. If an officer was called to your home or you for any reason have to deal with the police your life would then be in the public domain. The public would essentially become the judge and jury for every case, constantly second guessing and appealing the decisions of our legal system.
