Police body cameras have been a big source of contention lately. With various police shootings in the US, and the subsequent protests, many have called to have body cameras introduced for officers. Well, Seattle Police have gone one step further.
The force has begun uploading footage recorded from the cameras to YouTube. Now you might wonder how they can do this with there being many members of the non-consenting public being filmed in these videos. Well, if you watch one of their videos below, you’ll see how. They essentially turn the videos into a hazy blur, using a filter to make individuals indistinguishable.
So, while you might be interested to experience life as a police officer in Seattle, be prepared to experience life as an officer with an eye condition.
