Dash Cams Are Good
Been out of town and the laptop was geeking out on me. That's why no posts for a day or so.
Reason magazine has a brief mention of a guy cleared by a police dash cam. He was facing 5 years in the slammer. Turns out the cops who stopped him weren't quite truthful but another police car recorded enough stuff to clear the guy and get the cops in trouble.
Details are sketchy, which doesn't make me happy. I'd like to see the video that cleared him as I've often taken issue with others over how they interpret police videos. Regardless, the bottom line is videos can both help or hurt the police. That's why they're a good thing.
