NYPD May Get ‘Pistol Cams’

from new york post: The makers of a small, digital camera that attaches to the barrel of a gun say the device would have ended any dispute about what happened in the Sean Bell shooting.

By using the mini-cams to review their actions, “hopefully, [officers] will make better decisions under the most stressful circumstances,” ex-Assistant District Attorney Bill DeProspo said. Although a judge last month cleared three police officers of any crimes in Bell’s death, the training and procedures that the cops followed face almost certain review.
