I'm curious if someone could answer these questions about Police bodycams.

Who sees them? Do they have to be turned in for review? Can they be altered? In each dept, is there anybody that has sole responsibility to investigate these cams, then turn it over to someone else? How does it all work out.

1. All I know is that righteous police reform requires them to be on...

...and automatically penalizes cops who turn them off (they can do that).

3. To what end? Body cameras don't reduce police violence.

5. You are probably right

But they can help establish the facts of what actually happened, especially when you have juries predisposed to believe the police-version of the story.

6. Meh. That's not reform. I'd rather we don't get to the point of having to deal with juries and cop

stories in the first place.

10. Answer, depends on the state and/or municipality.

I can envision some Republican states where it would be illegal for a cop to have a body cam.

11. Just gotta wonder if

Anyway the feds could get involved? EVERY state should be the same, i'm thinking!
