Yes!!! And if anyone fails to do what a man of the law says, like "stop, hands up, etc.", then the policeman has the lawful right to arrest you. If you try to shoot him, he can defend himself and shoot you. If you shoot a policeman, you should be arrested and the punishment should be you life's punishment, no exceptions, no parole.

No, police should be retrained to deescalate high-tension situations and react to dangerous suspects with less lethal force. The reason a criminal isn't afraid to shoot a cop is the same reason a soldier isn't afraid to shoot his opponent in battle. If you threaten another person with death, expect them to fight like hell to kill you first. Furthermore, police accused of abusing their power should be tried as if they never had a badge in the first place. Murder is murder regardless of who kills who.

Yes but they should be able to be activated by dispatch officers, not the police officer.

I believe that with the world we live in today, where a young man who actually committed two crimes (theft and beating a policeman until he had to go to the hospital) dies from being shot in self defense and he is the hero, it is absolutely 100% in the interest of the officer to wear this device. Generations struggled for equality and most did so under the non-violent protests and gatherings of Dr. King, Jr. Those courageous people did not suffer and bleed and March just for their grandchildren and great grandchildren could just throw down the race card and the start rioting and looting and

All police should be re-trained to learn de-escalation techniques, etc. And if an officer uses excessive force at any time, they should be fired. We need a new approach to policing.

Regardless, eliminate all tax-based police departments and allow the free market to provide police services

I think that this would solve problems if officers would wear cameras because we would be able to have proof of who was right or wrong. I think that it would solve some of the defund the police and Black Lives Matter issues because we would be able to see what actually happened.

Yes, but once the footage is reviewed and deemed not to contain any damning evidence against the officer it can be deleted.

For an warrant being conducted all officers should be required to wear body cams. They shouldn’t be necessary for routine traffic stops

@9LNBCYRWorking Family from Wisconsin answered…12mos

Yes, all police and the camera must always be on (unless you are doing something personal - e.g. bathroom). this will protect both sides

@9LN92JCWorking Family from Ohio answered…12mos

Yes, and microphones that record the audio not just video and it should be illegal for them to turn them off

@9LMDNMVTranshumanist from California answered…12mos

Yes, and there's no reason for them to be turned off, so mandate that they remain on.

@9LMJ8NWSocialist from Texas answered…12mos

If the police were abolished, we would save the need for Body Cameras.

@9KQ6KW6Constitution from Tennessee answered…12mos

Yes and no because they should be able to chose if they wear one or not but it is also nice to have on when you are doing something and need to go back look to see what you did wrong or what you could have done better and they might need it as evidence to what actually happen to make sure no one is lying

@9KDZK3XLibertarian from Georgia answered…12mos

Yes but only when an officer is on patrol or had a history of getting into questionable situations

@9JR7LKYConstitution from Illinois answered…1yr

Only if full and unedited videos are available so footage cannot be manipulated and it should be understood they may not be able to capture the full context of a situation

@9JMZ234Green from New York answered…1yr

Yes, but there should be no increase in police budget to fund these cameras

@9HXR8GTWorking Family from Maryland answered…1yr

Yes, but the cameras should not be able to be manually turned on or off by the officers

@9HTS55PVeteran from Louisiana answered…1yr

Yes, this will help prove that law enforcement officers are doing their job properly

@9HRZT4TVeteran from South Carolina answered…1yr

Yes, and any thing that happens off camera should be considered pre-meditated on the part of the officer

@9HRWVW7Peace and Freedom from Indiana answered…1yr

Yes, when it comes to officers committing crimes against people of color even WITH body cams officers still get off with a light slap on the wrist but judges seem to turn a blind eye when there are no cameras. Body cams would be the first step in making sure that officers get convicted as well. Just because you wear blue doesn’t mean you automatically leave all of your human impulses at the door

@9HNBZYWPeace and Freedom from Illinois answered…1yr

Yes because we don't usually know the full act in crime, unless we actually see what's going on. Now in time not all police officers are good so we need to know the full story.

@9HMKMSTDemocrat from Kentucky answered…1yr

Should all cell phone footage be required to be turned in if it is a recording of a police officer/ citizen altercation that shows the full story instead of just what the media has released?
