San Jose Police will soon record all interaction with civilians

We’ve all heard and seen the stories of police brutality. They sure are taser-happy these days. Well, officers in San Jose, CA are being outfitted with head-mounted cameras. They hope this will help stop such situations. The kit includes a camera, a control piece and a computer for their belt. Every time an officer interacts with a civilian, they are supposed to activate the AXON camera.

Afterward, the officer can put the camera on a “buffer” mode that records limited video, or turn it off. At the end of a shift, the video is downloaded to a central server. The problem here is that the officer can turn it off at all. Obviously if you are going to give somebody a beatdown, why would you turn it on.
