Body Cameras

  • Police in Ferguson, Mo. are now wearing body cameras to record their interactions with protesters and the public.

    More and more law enforcement agencies are looking at the cameras as a powerful crime-fighting tool. So could Chicago be next?

    [...] We’ve all seen dash-cam videos that capture police officers in action. Some police agencies are also using body cameras.

    The evidence they provide is hard to dispute and part of the reason Chicago Police Supt. Garry McCarthy says his department is looking into using the cameras under a pilot program.

    “We’re not afraid to do enforcement. The point is to make sure we articulate it properly, and body cameras, I think, would back up that articulation,” McCarthy said Monday.

    He says his department has been working on the program for six to eight months, and some officers have volunteered to wear the cameras. But there’s no timetable on if, or when, they’ll actually be used on patrol.

    “There’s going to be contractual obligations that we’re going to have to probably negotiate with unions and so on, moving forward,” McCarthy said.

    He added: “At the end of the day, I endorse it, but I’m not sure if the officers are going to feel the same way.”
Anyone have any stats on the cameras currently in squad cars? From what we can see in our little corners of the Department, it's gone exactly as predicted:
  • the City bought the low-bid cameras;
  • they hired some hillbillies with rented trucks from Arkansas to install the things;
  • they burned out electrical wiring, PDTs and other systems because the vehicles weren't built with that kind of electrical capacity in mind (which voided out a shitload of warranties when Ford found out what they were doing - but don't mention that around);
  • then they've spent exactly ZERO dollars on servicing and maintaining the cameras, meaning the out-of-service ratio has to be astronomical.
Rahm doesn't (or says he doesn't) have the kind of money lying around that it would take to equip the entire Department with body cameras - not with the looming bills and balloon payments coming due shortly. And if it follows the formula listed above, it'd be just about as useless and wasteful as PODs and in-car cameras are already.

None of the cameras in my district work. Of course, that isn't saying much since we have very few cars available on a daily basis. The warning lights on the ones we have are all on but nobody wants to down them since there aren't any pool cars. In addition, broken door hinges, auto windows that don't work, no A/C and on and on.

Start at the top and lead by example.

Make sure everyone at the CompStat meeting is wearing one and that it is turned on with a live stream on the net.

Also add the aldermen and the mayor and his crew so that the taxpayers can see what they are getting for their tax dollars

Who you calling a hillbilly from Arkansas?

FYI the vehicle cameras were installed by 7th generation Irish from Canaryville who took shop classes in lieu of their eighth grade CPS education.

Seriously, where body cameras have been used properly complaints against police have dropped by upwards of 90 percent.

There seem to largely be two things at work. Cops are being more professional and citizens are acting better too.

The only downside I can see to cameras is plaintiff's attorneys who donate a whole lot of money to various politicians will be less generous. As we say in La Canaryville "Se La Vie....belch"

By the way...

When McLastCallMyAss! says: "We’re not afraid to do enforcement. The point is to make sure we articulate it properly, and body cameras, I think, would back up that articulation", it means one thing...

Like law enforcement agencies throughout the nation, McEveryFourthBeerIsOnTheHouse anticipates backlash from the usual ghetto suspects once Officer Darren Wilson is completely exonerated.

The next Civil War is brewing, folks. And it'll make for great history in about 50 years when our great-grandchildren get to see it all POV from an HD "helmet cam".

The need for more resources for police to try to maintain any semblance of civilization is generally closely tied to the increase of the welfare class population and the evacuation of the tax base as productive citizens flee the third world conditions.

This creates a vicious cycle and marks pretty much the point of no return.

Absolutely right, in the new ford cars, the cameras are shutting down. So no videos are being uploaded. Several new fords have 29,876,678,678 of video which translate to approximately 115 videos that need to be uploaded. But for some reason even if the vehicle is left on, the cameras shut off so the videos never upload. There cameras are not working. This is the city that works.

Well with the police option it has to least to have 100-110 amp alternators with the large battery setup
BUT you are already runnig least three radios a/c on high or fan and heat on high those are on all the time then the lights thats a big draw, flashers and such
Though intermittent still a big draw even not being real time
You probably have a transformer to step up or the voltage for the can, recorder audio and of course just wired in where ever they found a "hot" And ground rather than a fused panel constant slamming of charging and discharging is hard on the internal voltage regulator in the alternator as well as knocking the shit out of the lead plates on the batteries
That's difference between a Rv deep cycle battery and a regular car battery

They can't/won't/don't even service the in car cameras!

They piggy-backed on a low bid from a southern sheriff department with members of Daley Inc. pocketing A LOT OF THIS MONEY.

They had a bunch of chimps install the damn things so within a short amount of time there were A LOT of vehicles going to the garage for electrical problems.

VOIDED WARRANTIES?

Then Fleet put in an rder for the new Ford Explorer police vehicles...

Ford purpose built those vehicles to used THEIR SHIT which was developed in conjunction.

They said from the beginning...

"We have everything you need for these vehicles that WE developed/tested for compatability and reliability. if YOU fuck around and try to overlay YOUR SHIT, fuck up the electrical suite trying to tap hot wire to run YOUR OBSOLETE NON-COMPATABLE electronics, you WILL void the warranty."

A lot of cars are sitting because they electrical systems are fucked up.

Ford was refusing to sell anymore to the city because of this shit was one story we heard.

Any clarity on this out there?

So...

There is no fucking way this department is going to spring for body cameras... Besides, somebody "impo'tant" is going to get caught on camera and the powers that be won't be able to make it go away.

Too much protection for the street cop and it will fuck up Loevy et al. getting fat on tax payer dollars and it will fuck up the reign of terror of these bad supervisors and bosses.

Oh man if Chicago Police had personal cameras it would be proof positive the shit that the police have to deal with day after day.

No more "ma baby wuz turning his life around" bs anymore. There would be video proof lil crack wasn't that honor student you think he was..

Black police officers shoot dead black gang banger (Michel Brown types) all the time. There is never any rioting or marching over it. But if the cameras show a white cop putting down a black gang banger thug, the race baiters like Jesse Jackson will be marching and protesting. Race baiting CNN will be all over it too.

Personal cameras would cut down on frivolous lawsuits against the police. So it may be a good idea. But injury attorneys are Rahm Emanuel's good friends and he would want to hurt their business. So expect there to be no cameras.

The city/CPD get all kinds of new equipment thru federal grants.
The city/cpd spouts in the media about the new equipment.
The city/cpd NEVER purchase the maintenance agreements.
Hence, once equipment fails it is NEVER repaired.
Because the city/cpd didn't buy the equipment in the first place, they aren't out any real money.

Examples:
- In car cameras
- radiation detection devices (never actually passed on to the rank and file)
- driving simulators (I believe that there were 4 of these)
- shooting simulator (that was the large trailer at the Academy)

I'm sure some of you can come up with other examples of wasted government money.

If they charged and arrested every "citizen" that threatened, spit on, kicked, punched, stabbed at, shot at, drove a car at, threw a dangerous object at a police officer then there isn't a copper out there that wouldn't want to document it with a camera.

The reality is that we are subject to all that and more and there is barely an arrest approved much less a conviction for attacking a police officer compared to the real number of times it happen. The States Attorneys, Judges and every citizen sitting in a jury box thinks that's what we get paid for, to be punching bag. It's not. We are here to enforce the law, keep order and go home to our families at the end of the day.

Camera me up tomorrow, but you better be fair and charge everyone that assaults, batters or flat our tries to kill me with the felony that is on the books - but never applied.

It's funny. I have a side business doing property inspections which incidentally I do quite well at. I make more PT on RDO's than on this job FT. Anyhow I lock up dude and impound dude's car. A few days later he calls me off the internet (unknowingly). So I show up to the house he is set to buy and see the car I just impounded in front of the house. Tow numbers still on the car. I say to myself "Oh, boy. Here we go. How can I tap dance around this?" Sure enough dude is my client. He recognizes me right away. So I tell him I have a twin brother on the job and he buys my story. So after I finish up with the guy (two hours later) he feels comfortable in telling about his situation with "my brother" during his arrest. He flat out lies about the whole thing to my face. Says I called him the "N" word, I lied about his arrest and so on. I was floored at all of his lies and his wife was onboard and said they were going to sue for false arrest, etc.. So no complaint ever came but a body cam would have prevent him from attempting it either way.

I often used the ploy when making a street stop, "Smile for the camera." There was never a camera in my squad car but people always got real reasonable when I said that.

Same thing when some goof started acting the fool in front of my house. "Hey pal, why don't you just smile because there's three camera looking at us right here. You came from that way well there are two more down there and another when you go that way." He just kept going.

If I were still working I suppose I could just get a dummy camera on tie clip. It would create as much of a deterrent as a real one.

But it is sad that we are getting closer and closer to a 1984 reality and doing it to protect us from the lawyers and those who would riot.

I'm not a PO that would need to worry if I was ordered to wear a body camera, that being said this why I’m opposed to these cameras;
1. To begin the ridiculous cost to Chicago tax payers, even if the program starts with federal funding, ultimately Chicago tax payers will have to maintain such a program, and pay indirect costs, such as civil litigation as result of the program. There are 10,000 officers, not 200 like Ferguson, it will be a much bigger program and the odds are POs will make mistakes. (Most likely mistakes many POs would not consider misconduct.)
2. PO’s are not robots they are people. PO’s who agree to wear body cameras open themselves up to HINDSIGHT scrutiny, video will be reviewed by the city, lawyers, and the media looking for the one mistake, no cares about right or wrong on the street, or you and or your family. Those people care about money and or political points.
3. PO’s have lost creditability with the public and in the courts from a restless media campaign over the decades, so now a camera program is our savior to a problem the media created? As result would our creditability be worth more or less from a camera program? And will we be setting precedence that without video our word is meaningless? So if your camera is not working the day another criminal is shot then it is assumed you must have committed some kind of misconduct like Ferguson, allegedly? The media loves to put the rope around your neck and watch you hang yourself.
Maybe we need to just skip ahead to where this is really going and we end up like London PD, stop caring firearms, and instead of crime fighting we are crime documenters, Event number please.

Its not that the city bought the low bid cameras, it that they did not listen to us ( as usual ).
There are several Chicago based companies that do very good work. But for some odd reason, they insist on being paid on time and not doing kick backs to the Democratic party or the reverands. So we are stuck with over priced garbage
Also, we have to wonder what happened to some of the money for
some of the stuff?

LOL - more cameras! This city and department are a never-ending bad joke. They will not spend money on fixing the little equipment we do have, let alone more on new cams; PDTs are broken and missing - myself and many other officers haven't used one all summer, cars sit broken and waiting for repair at the area; we had a broken door in lockup that shut down the whole operation for over 4 months, while the part to fix it sat on a shelf; fax machines, computers, phones - you name it, all in need of repair or replacement. The in-car cams have been broken forever. They talk so much bs, spend millions of tax dollars and accomplish absolutely nothing. This city is buried in so much bureaucratic horse shit, they can smell it from China, through their mile thick fog of pollution!

I vaguely remember reading something about Fresno PD (maybe?) wearing body cameras and how use of force by police *and* complaints against police dropped by 80%. (or something along those lines - I was probably drinking when I read it.) But I can see it - people tend to be more polite when they're on camera. I know CPD has other pressing matters but it would make for an interesting experiment.

OT:
https://news.wsu.edu/2014/09/02/deadly-force-lab-finds-racial-disparities-in-shootings/#.VAc30bEtYY3

"Participants in an innovative Washington State University study of deadly force were more likely to feel threatened in scenarios involving black people. But when it came time to shoot, participants were biased in favor of black suspects, taking longer to pull the trigger against them than against armed white or Hispanic suspects."

Interesting. I don't know how valid it is, but it's worth a discussion.

Four Police Brutality Reforms to Focus On: A Libertarian Take
It's going to take a while.
Ed Krayewski | September 2, 2014

The killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, last month by Officer Darren Wilson led to weeks of protest, a militarized police response to early reports of rioting, and a “national discussion” about police militarization, racism, and police brutality. The police killing of Michael Brown was not unique.

There is no fucking way this department is going to spring for body cameras... Besides, somebody "impo'tant" is going to get caught on camera and the powers that be won't be able to make it go away.

Too much protection for the street cop and it will fuck up Loevy et al. getting fat on tax payer dollars and it will fuck up the reign of terror of these bad supervisors and bosses.

9/03/2014 03:38:00 AM


This cheap fucking city will make it a requirement that all new hires buy their own body cameras and maintain them forever as a standard uniform item.

The rest of us would have the body camera as an optional uniform item. Desirable but optional. People would buy them to cover their ass. The City could make it known that officers without body cameras might not get the benefit of the doubt in questionable incidents.

If the city did buy body cameras for everyone, they would buy junk from the low bidder and you pass it off to the next shift. They would soon be ruined.

OT: GUN GRABBERS SEEK SHUT DOWN OF LOCAL GUN SHOPS



YOU NEED TO DEMONSTRATE YOUR SUPPORT FOR THE RKBA ON SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 6



A coalition of gun grabbers including Sarah Brady's Handgun Control Inc., the Bloomberg Moms, and militant priest Michael Pfleger recently announced the kick-off of a campaign to shut down 4 popular local gun shops. This action is part of an overall campaign to abolish civilian firearm ownership across the United States.

The gun-grabbers plan to launch this latest campaign against your rights on Saturday, September 6, 2014 at Chuck's Gun Shop, 14310 S Indiana Ave, Riverdale, IL. It is very important that we get a maximum turn out of gun owners to be on hand to support Chuck's and the right to keep and bear arms. So, please try to be at Chuck's to show you care about your rights. Saturday would also be a good time to help the shop out by making some sort of purchase. If you've never been to one of these events, you are in for a treat. You'll get to see first hand the tactics of the antigunners. You'll witness just how low they are willing to stoop to undermine your constitutional rights. You'll hear the lies, the fabricated statistics, an the hysterical claims about how private firearm ownership is dooming mankind. If Pfleger takes the stage you'll certainly be entertained by his special brand of frothy-lipped lunacy. Few will forget Pfleger's rant in front of Chucks several years ago when he called for the ISIS-style murders of gun shop owners and elected officials who support gun rights. Attendance at this event is a must for anyone who loves freedom. You cannot appreciate liberty until you look those who would deny you liberty right in the eye.

HERE'S WHAT YOU NEED TO DO TO PROTECT YOUR GUN RIGHTS:

1. Come to Chuck's Gun Shop, 14310 S Indiana Ave, Riverdale, IL, on Saturday, September 6, 2014. We would like to have our people there by 9:15 AM so that you will have room to park and to prepare for the morning's activities. Be sure to wear iGOLD shirts or hats if you have them. Otherwise, any NRA or gun-related clothing would be fine. Please bring a friend or two - a major turnout of gun owners is needed.

2. Be sure to pass this alert along to your friends and family...tell them to come out for this event too.

3. Please post this alert to any and all Internet Blogs or Bulletin Boards to which you may belong. Do not limit postings to gun-related sites. Be sure to post to any boards or blogs where people who support the 2nd Amendment visit. We need maximum exposure!


Hope to see you Saturday!

If...IF this post is legit, allow me to be the first to respond telling you that you are the epitome of stupidity. Why, you ask?

Simple: you claim to make more money working a part-time gig than you do for the city, yet you're still out being proactive, knowingly placing yourself in harms way.

You're the perfect example of what people mean when they say "you can't teach common sense". Perhaps you should've given him a discounted rate as an olive branch for your "brother" calling him the 'N-word', LAUGHING OUT LOUD right about now.

I suggest you start wearing that body camera to your side job.

I have been retired from CPD since before cameras became an issue. I am not an electronic genius, but I don't understand the trouble mounting cameras in cars, or placing body cameras on officers. I have a Sony Handy Cam that operates on 6 volts at low amps and runs for several hours. How can that so adversely affect the wiring in a vehicle. The thing wasn't a major investment, around 200 bucks or so. If they are a good idea, and I also don't know the answer to that, why so much trouble installing them and placing them on cops. It sure doesn't seem to be difficult.

All I remember was that they laid out a LOT of money, and nothing worked.
*******************

That was a Homeland Security project. You are absolutely correct-a big waste of money and it in fact did not work. Some people got jammed for it. This was a knee-jerk to 9-11 and complete failure.

County POLICE cars have had mounted cameras in the cars for years.

If you are required to wear a camera and have it on at all times, make sure that it has the urinal and your junk clearly in view, as well as any bowel movement flushing scenes.

Go ahead and put a body camera on me, I will answer my calls, take my 2 personals and half hour lunch and go home. No more proactive police work out of me.

You just described my career. Do you think you invented something new? The Federal lawsuit against police officers is not a new occurrence either.

What a bunch of BS. First off they can't even fix the in car cameras and PDT'S. The officers that had the expertise to do this job are put out there in Safe Passage, Fuck these kids and their dog ass parents who can't get their asses out of bed to walk them to school. Take care of the troops and give them the tools to work with in a safe and proper manner. This department is so backwards it is pathetic, just keep treating the troops like SHIT and then wonder why attitudes and moral is in the gutter, Bow to the mutts!!!!!

The "star" guy is a grizzled veteran no doubt. Probably would jump all over anyone who says "perp" or "collar."

We've always made fun of the ones that incorrectly used the term "badge". It's always been a "star". You didn't get out much did you?

1. Criminals wil protest or riot anyways even if the camera footage shows justified shooting...pointless
2. pro-active policing will stop, police will become only reactive, bud guy will figure this out...pointless
3. public does not understand that "sir / ma'am" talk might as well be, "dont take me seriously, I'm clueless"...pointless
4. Media/public obtains video BEFORE a trial, the p.o. is tried in a court of public opinion, career/life ruined...pointless

The bottom line is that the sheeple have been convinced by big brother that that that police are brutal racists and must be resisted...oh and it can be changed with a vote on Nov 2. If police are such an unstoppable fascist fear inducing force like they claim, why are there 20 shootings in 1 weekend and 100K gangbangers in this city?

All kinds of terror alerts out, especially on the southern border. ISIS may be staging in Juarez. Black-clad men (on video) storming the beaches in San Diego, twenty at a time, both day and night, "immigrant children" rioting and busting out of detention centers, and the FBI is busy trying to find who hacked the nude "celebrity" photos off the cloud.

Juarez borders El Paso, Texas. San Diego borders Tijuana. Juarez is 734 miles from San Diego. As far as "storming the beaches of San Diego" there are a few military bases in that part of California.

There are 16 naval and military installations of the U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps, and the U.S. Coast Guard in San Diego County. These include the Naval Base San Diego, Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, and Naval Air Station North Island.

Sounds as if ISIS should buy a membership to AAA and get some road maps.

Amazing New Evidence Indicates Michael Brown’s Friend Joined Attack On Ferguson Cop
michael
Written by Donald Joy on September 5, 2014

Recent analysis shows that Michael Brown’s friend Dorian Johnson, besides being Brown’s accomplice in the convenience store robbery just minutes before, may have also helped Brown in the physical fight against officer Darren Wilson which took place at (and inside) Wilson’s patrol vehicle. This is completely contrary to Johnson’s statements portraying himself merely as a witness to the fight. It’s also extremely important news, which the corrupted news-reporting profession refuses to report.

The unpaid super-sleuths at The Conservative Treehouse are once again blowing to smithereens the usual left-wing race hoax media narrative: Just as they did last year, when they doggedly unearthed irrefutable key evidence and analysis to which George Zimmerman’s defense team continuously turned for help in exonerating their client in the Trayvon Martin fiasco, the blogging collective at TCT (also known as The Last Refuge), or “Treepers,” are now turning their laser-like forensic skills toward uncovering the truth about what happened last month on a street in Ferguson, Missouri.
