One-half of LAPD Cops Are Disabling Their Recorders

Via avordvet

 

What good are lapel cams and microphones if the cops are disabling them? Why aren’t they being fired for this?

“No one likes to be monitored,” says Sid Heal, recently retired commander who evaluated technology during his decades-long tenure at the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. And? If you do not want to be filmed and recorded don’t be a cop.

According to the arstechnica.com, The Los Angeles Police Commission is investigating how half of the recording antennas in the Southeast Division went missing, seemingly as a way to evade new self-monitoring procedures that the Los Angeles Police Department imposed last year.

  1. Rules for me but not for thee... good, then they have no taped evidence of me threatening them... when a stop gets dicey...

    1. :) Instead of the picture I posted, I almost posted me which said much the same as you: "One law for us, one law for you."

  3. I think the percentage of the force that are dirty street thugs have self identified. IA should have a quick time processing their terminations...

  4. Fred has something to say about this, but I really wonder about Apple and Google - can they be trusted or is this all part of the street theater to make us think they are trying to thwart the Tyrants in our Govt.?

    1. Good question, but I guess the highest bidder will win which may well be the consumer, hopefully.

    2. It would be nice, I agree, but what does the consumer have to bid with versus the Beast on the Potomac?
      I (the consumer) will give you freshly printed 'Federal Reserve Notes' that lose value every year in exchange for your efforts to secure my privacy.
      vs.
      I (the Government) will give you the Full Gibson (Guitar) treatment, seize your materials, audit your books, ruin your business, stop your banking transactions and arrest or kill anyone who tries to interfere, stop, or even watch what I am doing to you; unless you cease and desist with this idea that people should be allowed any vestige of so-called privacy or rights.

  6. Hey....if you're not doing anything wrong why should you care if you are being filmed?

    Cuts both ways.

  7. So government doesn't have a problem recording EVERYTHING said and done on cell phones, computer, ipads etc., along with using facial recognition software to track people through video cameras, gets upset when we record them, and then turns off devices that record them? What was the definition of tyranny again?
