Are Video Cameras Policing the Police?
A lot has been happening in the United States related to the public’s relationship to the police, and it hasn’t been a positive one.
With the recent bodcam released showing a Cincinnati police man shooting a man in his car, a dashboard cam that showed the reality behind Sandra Bland’s arrest, and when a friend pulled out their camera at a pool party they showcased a violent police arrest.
All of these instances were helpful information for the police, but also they showcased police violence that was soon released to the public. We could actually SEE what these arrests looked like, instead of just reading about them on the news.
As we live in a culture of smart phones, body cams, and dashboard cams, we need to recognize that we will be exposed to many dark and sensitive material. But maybe this will help us actually address real problems with the police.
