  1. The big question is: Will the cops be required to keep cameras rolling “all the time” while on active duty and in particular when dealing with the public? Don’t care what they do on their own time or in private. However, cameras must be on all the time when interacting with the public. Too easy to dismiss evidence against the cops if they’re allowed to turn the camera off, say, to lay a beating on someone. Also, do these cameras live feed to a recording device in the station and/or to a police oversight office? That would be a good idea if they don’t.
