IIRC, they're against them because they would only be on when it is beneficial for the police. Now I think the problem here is the presumption of guilt. I think that if there's a dispute involving the police with the civilian and there are contradicting stories and the cam turned out to be off/malfunctioning, then the police should be assumed to be lying. You might say that would hinder the police's ability to perform it's duties, but really, police needs a lot of equipment in functioning order and part of their duties is to make sure that the equipment functions properly.

Yeah, that's the general vibe I pick up off it as well. The shit on their website lists "to prevent surivillence/spying in neighborhoods" or what not. SMH

Everyone has to be corrupt it seems nowadays.

The doo-doo keeps piling up for Trump, but I'm the problem solving sort of guy, so let's see what I would advice.

To get out of criminal charges, he should pardon himself, but then he has impeachment to worry about. Getting out of impeachment is a bit more involved.

First, he needs to call up his Russian friends and ask then to sink a US destroyer in the Black sea. They can always conjur up a bullshit storm about territorial waters or whatever so don't worry about that. The next step is the tricky bit, to have congress draft a decleration of war against Russia while being publically against it. This probably requires some combination of vague tweeting and adequate degrees of saber rattling from Russia. When congress is ready to pass the decleration of war, you disband congress and have it's members arrested with the justification of preventing a nuclear holocaust that would likely end human civilization.

No congress means Trump is safe from impeachment.

Of course, this leaves him in a rather precarious situation, with only a few days before he has an armed insurection on his hands. He should therefore probably federalize the national guard immediately and start purging the military, making sure to put Christian dominionists in all key positions (all in the interest quelching the thirst for blood the military has, of course).

Like I said, it's a little bit involved.

I have to admit, that makes for one amusing read.

National Guard vs the real military though? Don't make me laugh. :lol:

The way you enact radical change is to do it gradually in steps that are less outrageous than the proposition of opposing you would be (Boiling frogs and what not). Disbanding congress could be seen as acceptable if the alternative is world war 3, securing the athority of all military branches is not unreasonable when there's turmoil. But to send a military still loyal to the previous form of government to enforce your new government, that is going too far. You can't do that until you made the military loyal to you personally.

Actually if you do that and put religious fundamentalists in charge we have a world similar to the Handmaid's Tale
