In the wake of the lethal shooting of Michael Brown by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri a petition has been launched to have the White House look into requiring all police officers in the country to wear body cameras. The petition has now exceeded 128,000 signatures, the Obama Administration said it will respond to petitions that exceed 100,000.
Yes!!! And if anyone fails to do what a man of the law says, like "stop, hands up, etc.", then the policeman has the lawful right to arrest you. If you try to shoot him, he can defend himself and shoot you. If you shoot a policeman, you should be arrested and the punishment should be you life's punishment, no exceptions, no parole.
Yes, this will protect the safety and rights of police officers and citizens it should not be a police department’s or officer’s choice to wear one, and they should not be allowed to turn off or mute the cameras while on duty either.
Yes and no because they should be able to chose if they wear one or not but it is also nice to have on when you are doing something and need to go back look to see what you did wrong or what you could have done better and they might need it as evidence to what actually happen to make sure no one is lying
