Mark Duggan death: Armed police to wear video cameras
Police really should be recording video at all times while on duty. There are so many advantages:
- People tend to provoke officers less.
- People tend to file fewer false complaints - there's no way to get away with lying.
- Encourages officers to act professionally and avoid abuses of authority.
- When an encounter resulted in harm, there is compelling evidence on whether the officers' behavior was justified.
