Who could have guessed this would happen? Or that cops wouldn’t like being recorded?

Police officers in Rialto, Calif., carry cameras to record their every action while on duty. The city says the program has reduced complaints against police officers by 88 percent during the first year.

  1. bobbo, cops are alot like ex-wives in so many respects says:

    Hmmmm, what are the pro’s and con’s of adding this notion to my discussion with the CHPD that they should stop forcing me to allow ex-convict drug abusers into my home?

    Ha, ha. They aren’t talking to me now. Imagine anyone not kissing their asses…. blue or not.

    Sad, but who else are you going to get to function in such an environment???………………….Oh >>>>>same people WITH A CAMERA.

    You gotta love the singularity and the phenomenon of unintended consequences.

      Freedom, other people doing what you don’t like.

    • MikeN says:

      It’s not your home. You didn’t build that.

      • Tim says:

        Well, you might have built that but you failed to go through our office properly so that we will be along shortly to shoot you.

        • bobbo, Oh LORD-----you have given us dictionaries but the HEATHENS refuse to read your good book says:

          More likely—tear it down.

          • Tim says:

            And shoot you if you are on sight. Because the cop guarding the guy with the wrecking-ball is a pussy-ass chicken shit AJ squared away jarhead gobot that would feel threatened if the potential to be yelled at existed where others might hear it.

      • bobbo, Oh LORD-----you have given us dictionaries but the HEATHENS refuse to read your good book says:

        Mickey—what a rare flourish of humor you demonstrate. I knew there were depths you your shallowness.

        Yes, indeedy, Lodger is moving out of my owner occupied domicile as I speak. Stealing everything she can along the way….. like a divorce, money well spent.

        CHPD sent email saying they should have more info soon. 3 State attorneys have already said they aren’t following the law, but they are securing their own “Formal” Opinion.

        Can Nirvana be far behind?

        • Tim says:

          You are fucked. They’ll just call you ‘Dorner’, shoot everybody in a car or truck, and call it a day after setting you on fire and say you were protesting something irrelevant {it will be proven because they will find your driver’s license at no less than six different locations}.

          Enjoy your fifteen minutes of flame… err, fame.

        • MikeN says:

          So now her druggie friends will be out to get you?

          • bobbo, Oh LORD-----you have given us dictionaries but the HEATHENS refuse to read your good book says:

            I don’t think so. But that can change on any single “hit.”

            I am amused. Trying to get “the system” to recognize basic human rights set forth in the constitution. Such a fine line. Not going postal, not whining incompetently like LL.

            Call me Pangloss.

    In the less alienated past this function have been done by the community itself – counteracting proven psychological phenomenon of becoming (more) tyrannical when given a power over others with a social feedback. As we have given more powers to the police (hence limiting ability to do social feedback) and social setup changed to a very alienated one (we do not want to give even a little social feedback that we can) , technological feedback replaced social feedback that have vanished. Yes, in modern society these cameras are greatly needed.

    • Tim says:

      Yes. I was coherced into going in and making a formal complaint against an officer and general proceedure, years ago. The complaint needed to be made yet I did question the voracity of the individual that goaded me into doing it. I’ve been on a shit-list, hands up, got any grenades or knives list everytime I’m within a square mile of the pigs ever since.

    Potential for a new reality TV series. Filmed entirely in donut shops.

  4. MikeN says:

    From the looks of it, it looks like it is recording the public, not the police. Does Mark Perkel know you are supporting this government surveillance? When he finds out and asks you, just tell him you are proving that you are not a traitor by supporting the government.

    • Tim says:

      My million-sequin polyesther mirror-shirt is making a comeback though it still does not breath very well.

  5. super77 says:

    I’d like to see what happens if and when the LAPD gets hold of these things. Will the stats be in the same ballpark?

  6. Little Brother says:

    Funny how those in government will actually do their jobs once they realize someone else could be watching. (Not that ESPN is any great example since they can’t/won’t attach cameras to members of Congress like that.)

    I just wonder how long it will be before these cops realize no one of any significance is watching and that they will still be able to get away with most of the things they’ve been doing all along. About the only difference is, they won’t be able to lie about what they were doing since they will now have big brother looking over their shoulders – almost literally. (Not as though big brother is any great factor when he’s clearly locked up behind that great blue firewall called “classified information”.)

    Of course, one of the downsides for the public could be that it gives cops more of an incentive to “shoot first” knowing that there is actually [editable] evidence (beyond their already court approved impeccable testimony) to back them up whenever someone goes for a wallet or for any other reason puts their hands out of plain sight — or makes a sudden move due to epilepsy, Parkinson’s or being tazered!

    • Tim says:

      Putting *eyes on* congress critters would get the videographer dissapeared for child porn — Blackmail is how this gubment is currently is directed and they don’t like competition weakening the power structure by mainstreaming it.

  7. Hmeyers says:

    X) The job of a cop is to deal with troublemakers.


    Y) Troublemakers like to make trouble.


    Z) Troublemaker on camera = caught in a lie.

    Connect X -> Y -> Z.

    • Tim says:

      Yea. I wish more cops would just set themselves on fire instead of clogging up the court system with bullshit.

      • Tim says:

        I’d probably give YouRube the $.99 to see that one unless I cammed it out in front of the house. The pigs have been taught *us against them*… so, be it.

      • Tim says:

        I mean, hired-due-to-mental-deficiancy *servants* burn just as good as any other witches on the list.

    • Tim says:

      I’ve got a *no hesitation* trainer target of a cop in quick sand to help me hone my reflexes to not reveal potentially unlicensed rope.

    • Tim says:

      The job of a cop is, first and foremost, to be an enforcer of edicts only some of which are actually *law*. He is the cohersive force of violence and threat of violence which is the State tool of choice for subjugation of citizens and of conditioned learned helplessness of society through continual percieved threat.

      The preferred method of the cop is troublemaking. Let it be known that every back-photon shot forth from the eyes a cop has but one single directive — to spray Trouble on all it interacts with. The preferred technique of a cop is trickery upon the
      individual to cause him to give up his rights — This trickery is also backed up with the threat of violence {Incarceration is violence. Resistance is death}.

      An individual at peace with himself and all those around him suddenly has his door kicked in by Officers Friendly and orders barked at all in the room. They are made to lay on the floor with hands on neck while Trouble is attemting to be sprayed all over
      everything. One of the individuals’ friends was a fat asthmatic who lifted up and turned his head a little for a gasp of air. One of the troublemakers then shoves his gun into the nape of his neck and holds his knee in his back until fatso who couldn’t follow directions very good suffocates. The State consoles the individual grieving over the loss of his friend that sometimes people get killed when they are associated with potential criminal activity.

      One Fourth of July, group of young friends decide to get together and go camping. They are doing this to escape the past week of all-night ‘woop woop’ and occasional yelling up and down their otherwise lonely back country road. There has been no
      *crime*, or anything; But the road is a bypass off the main thoroughfare which has been clogged by a turnstill Trouble-chechout with too many dirty old bats spread against their carts imploring the poor handsome, young bag-boy to check their pockets for coupons.

      They have gone far off the beaten path. They are at the back of the woods in a field by a stream where the fishing and the talking has been good and they decide they didn’t miss personal fireworks firing at all. The camp fire is down to a deep, sanquine glow and they are bedding down open-air for the night under a clear and starry July sky with one lone thunderhead in the distance giving them an incredible show of natural firework
      heat-lightning. All fall asleep at peace with themselves and everything around them.

      Un-beknownst to them, a cop has also made his way down the muddy, winding trail and snuck up to them. They awake startled by Trouble barking orders and taking stance with drawn and trained weapon threatening to kill the old and well tied-up dog which had dared speak to him out of turn. Now they just stay locked up inside listening to the ‘woop woop’ all these years since.

      Cops are alot like firefighters as they are both paid with public funds. Cops make it part of their job creating Trouble so that revenue is generated while deterring crime engineering society — They don’t sit around twittling their thumbs until they are needed. Firefighters don’t drive around kicking in doors and dropping lit cigarettes from their lips and white phosphorous from their pockets behind every couch they think flame may be hiding nor do they typically set fire to every citizen they interact with. O.K. So there are perhaps a few minor differences.

      Sometimes {usually to cover our own asses} it is necessary to initiate interaction with police. Let us consider, as an example, our dear resident bobbo.

      What bobbo has been forced to do is a careful balancing and ballistics act to lawfully remove an unwanted boarder. This is akin to going to the fast-flowing Strom of Trouble and attempting to use a dish to direct some of the State cohersive force toward said boarder. But, bobbo must be careful to stand just in the right position and enter the dish just so or else he could find himself and everything around splashed with mis-directed Trouble, as well. — If they come to his home, then he will have to remain very still and submissive while forensics determins that his Merry Methmaker 9000 is not really some
      forbidden two-cup Pyrex and tealeaves operation in disguise — God help him if the dinger dings before they have completed their investigation.

      • MikeN says:

        I thought you were supposed to let bobbo do the long-winded stuff?

      • bobbo, Oh LORD-----you have given us dictionaries but the HEATHENS refuse to read your good book says:

        Parts of that were excellent, showing its only a first draft. The rambling dark images reminded me of beat author William S. Burroughs.

        Cops are dangerous and I’ve been more than pulling their tail.

        When my trespassing lodger moved out, they said the issue was now only theoretical. I said “No–you are still violating the law.”

        Next steps.

        Change the calcified CHPD for my communities benefit, or put my tail between my legs for my own?

        I HATE making choices. And owning a gun would not even help. Ha, ha.

  8. deegee says:

    Recording a video is meaningless.
    Cops (and/or their lawyers) are already altering or editing or deleting or “misplacing” the camera footage before it gets to court.
    Do an interweb search on it and there are plenty of stories on the news media sites.

  9. bobbo, Oh LORD-----you have given us dictionaries but the HEATHENS refuse to read your good book says:

    Ha, ha. I just assume that if not now, eventually, the video will be a live streaming affair connected to the DRONE. AI will determine the guilty party according to their advanced algorithms and like a god, justice will be dispensed from the sky.

    All bow down before thy God Zod!!!!

    You got to love the singularity.
