Require All Armed Police to Wear Body Cameras

Daily Kos Action

President Obama, Attorney General Holder, and law enforcement officials everywhere.

Michael Brown’s family has made a call to action in the aftermath of the heartbreaking decision in Ferguson:
“Join with us in our campaign to ensure that every police officer working the streets in this country wears a body camera.”

Earlier this year, petitions asking for this same thing were delivered to the White House. They responded with some preliminary findings:
* Evidence that both officers and civilians acted in a more positive manner when they were aware that a camera was present;

* New opportunities for effective training of law enforcement officers presented by the use of cameras; and

* Useful evidence of interactions was often captured on video

Everyday that this policy is not in place, lives continue to be at risk.

ACTION ALERT: Here is a link to the White House/We the People petition:
Mike Brown Law. Requires all state, county, and local police to wear a camera.
