To WCSH6 Burbank said, ”What better way to document the entire event than an officer wear a camera that sees what the officer sees?”

The city is looking into the Taser AXON Flex, which cost between $1,000 to $2,000. The local NBC affiliate said the technology would provide “cops-eye view” footage. Watch the report: (Video)

I can see it now. You walk into a public restroom and he takes a peek at you at the next urinal. You're on candid camera!

No need looking for a scandal, just plain and simple incompetence that costs our Ambassador and other patriotic Americans lives !!! At least there are some people left in America that know how to protect this country and don't lean your way !!!

It's nice to have somebody watching Big Brother for a change. There's nothing to worry about if they're doing nothing wrong. That's what law enforcement tells us, anyway.

This won't be used to do the right thing, such as if a cop is being abusive to people.
