The rush to outfit police officers with body cameras after last summer's unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, threatens to saddle local governments with steep costs for managing the volumes of footage they must keep for months or even years, according to contracts, invoices and company data reviewed by The Associated Press.
The storage expenses — running into the millions of dollars in some cities — often go overlooked in the debates over using cameras as a way to hold officers accountable and to improve community relations.

We strongly wanted. On the one hand, how can we believe that cops can protect us if their actions may depend on their mood? But then, can we really afford it?
Those costs can have a significant effect on city and county budgets.
And another issue is invasion of privacy. Sometimes the videos get leaked be it accidently or on purpose

Cameras would not be needed if we put cops behind bars for what they do. The whole reason behind the cameras is that cops get by with cold blooded murder. All it would take is to sentence a few to life in prison without the possibility of parole, word would get around, and cops would obey the same laws that you and I HAVE to obey. If cops were held to the same standards as everyone else, then cameras and other devices wouldn't be needed. Police brutality is a KNOWN, it happens, it's common, and should be punished with prison time. Cops beat, rape, and murder, then get nothing in the way of punishment. Very few ever serve time for their crimes. If cops wont police their own profession, then it's up to us to see to it that they are punished when they break the same laws that they punish us for breaking.

Cops lie for each other, cover up crimes for each other, abuse their power and authority, and are rarely ever punished. It's a brotherhood of corruption and criminal activity.They deserve no respect, and certainly don't deserve to go unpunished for their actions. Cops beat their wives, drink while driving, speed, force some victims to perform sex acts in order to let them go without writing them a ticket, and other misdeeds. Yet, our courts basically give them a free pass should they ever be brought into a court room. Save taxpayers the expense of cameras and just throw the low-life scum in prison for their actions. After several are convicted and sentenced, the rest of them will get the message and start doing their job instead of abusing their power and authority.
