Farmington Daily Times (Newspaper) - September 12, 2015, Farmington, New Mexico Washington body cameras show More than the facts How and when the Public gets to see the footage still remains up for debate by Quwwn Sullivan the annotated pre Washington a a Seattle Man was arrested in january during a demonstration to protest police violence. Though he has yet to be charged with an offence his arrest captured on police body camera recordings. Along with his full name address phone number and birthrate a Are Public records. The use of police body cameras like those used in Seattle is spreading to keep officers honest about using Force against citizens. But How and when the Public gets to see the footage is up for debate months after the arrest of Michael Moynihan. The 32-year old Seattle Man the Seattle police depart ment said his Case is under review. Moynihan said he rapports police wearing body cameras but his own experience shows the unsettling consequences a a that a a very dangerous weapon that they have there Quot Moynihan said. Videos of police shootings across the country have become critical to determining what happened in situations that turn deadly. In some cases strapping cigarette pack site cameras to officers uniforms has been framed As a Way to curb police brutality and Stem deteriorating Trust in Law enforcement. Its not that simple. While the recordings May help get to the truth of an incident with police they also record distraught victims grieving family members people suffering from mental illness and citizens exercising their rights to free speech and civil disobedience. Cameras May solve one problem but create others. A any policy that categorically Shields or opens up body camera footage is probably wrong Quot said Jay Stanley a senior policy analyst with the american civil Berties Union. The use of police body cameras is still in its infancy with no official count for How Many of the 18,000 state and local departments have turned to them but dozens of agencies across the country Are testing them and Many have plans to Roll them out More broadly. Some existing Laws that govern what information is released to the Public Are on the chopping Block As Seattle police officers move in to make an arrest in january during a Black lives matter demonstration. States try to strike the balance Between a citizens right to privacy and making officers answer for their actions. A policy to release All police recorded videos could mean footage of the inside of a persons Home or a Hospital would be available. But if the policy is not to release footage in order to protect a person s privacy that could mean a video of an officer shooting someone would not be made Public defeating the main purpose of the use of these cameras. A what started As an Effort to capture or prevent bad police behaviour i think now we re starting to see the realities of it capturing True human suffering Quot Frank Straub chief of the Spokane Washington police department said earlier this year at a policy forum on Capitol Hill. The solution is somewhere in the Middle. Some departments redact the faces of bystanders or those arrested or blur a video so much that Little is recognizable. Others wont release video if its part of an ongoing investigation. Some policies allow officers to turn their cameras on and off. Even completely uncensored footage May not Crys Walize an incident because its taken from one officers physical position often a moving one. This can create shaky footage and in some cases wont capture All details of a violent encounter. State Laws vary about what the Public can see. Existing recordings Are covered under these Laws such As videos from cameras mounted inside patrol cars. But body cameras produce More footage than dashboard cameras footage that can show officers inside Peoples Homes and other private places body cameras have become an easy political answer to the Complex problem of crumbling Trust in police. In South Carolina for example police footage initially released after an officer shot a suspect in april showed the suspect running away during a routine traffic Stop. Cellphone footage from a witness told a different Story and the North Charleston mayor quickly called for All uniformed officers to Wear body cameras president Barack Obama supports using them and his administration has pledged millions of dollars to local departments police in Seattle received so Many requests for body camera footage under the states open records Law that the department decided proactively to release videos on a youtube Channel that Are censored beyond what is required by the states Law police say they re blurring the videos in order to protect the privacy of those recorded. Some Are blurred beyond the Point of recognition. An activist who once pushed the department to be More transparent is now working on the project Seattle police spokesman Sean Whitcomb said.
