I'm still not a fan of bodycams for cops.

1) It creates a new form of state surveillance (the cameras are pointed at the public).
2) I have seen zero evidence that bodycams actually result in more cops being held accountable for their actions.

@polymerwitch I think some bodycam footage has been used against a Louisiana state trooper and maybe some other cops. It's unusual how many cops were actually indicted this year, but I agree with how bodycams are mostly ineffective for holding the police accountable. Pig pens have been very selective about releasing damning video. Sometimes, they don't use their cams, but I noticed how obvious their cams were when they "helped" volunteers clean up a homeless camp!
