It’s a good idea, however, I have one problem with this: It’s possible that the instigating factor that causes the officer to go to the Taser may have occurred before the camera’s shutter goes off. There’s a risk of losing context if the body cameras are only selectively employed like this. All that being said, though, it does go toward assuaging officers’ fears of being recorded full-time (which may or may not be warranted).

re: #1 thedopefishlives

Hopefully, (trainable) that’s an instance where tho cop already turned it on. This will fill in in a sudden encounter.

Triggering the body cams to taser deployments is brilliant. This will provide incontrovertible proof that the suspects made a sudden movement before being shot.

I’d much rather trigger the camera anytime a baton, side arm or taser leaves it’s holster. I’d really like every camera inside a mile to turn on when an officer retrieves a long arm from the trunk of a patrol car.

Bravo to all of this. Cameras are the right answer to police brutality, and they are also the right answer to false claims of police brutality. And there’ll be less of both when everybody knows that what really happened will be right there on tape. It’s not a cure-all, but it’s a cure-some and then we can worry about curing the rest.
