US Senator Pushing for Widespread Use of Police Body Cams

Since cops have nothing to hide…..

WASHINGTON – Republican Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina has recently pushed for hearings to be held within the U.S. Senate to discuss the potential widespread use of body cameras for police officers.

Scott recently stated, “I believe the deployment of body-worn cameras will provide increased protections for both law enforcement and those they serve.”

The shooting of unarmed 50-year-old Walter Scott (unrelated to Sen. Tim Scott) by a police officer earlier this month, is one of Sen. Scott’s major motivations to get these hearings in the works – referring to the shooting as “tragic and unnecessary.” … Ya think?

Well, hopefully the next few weeks will bring progress on this motion to enforce the use of body cams on police officers. After all, if the cops have nothing to hide, they shouldn’t be afraid to wear the cams.
