Kansas City Congressman Cleaver Promises To Reintroduce Police Body Cam Legislation



Congressman Cleaver's office notes a renewed commitment to surveillance of the police in the new year . . .

CONGRESSMAN CLEAVER INTRODUCES BODY CAMERA LEGISLATION

The “Cam Act” Requires State and Local Law Enforcement Agencies Who Receive DOJ Grants Have Their Officers Wear a Body Camera.

Congressman Emanuel Cleaver, II has introduced The "Camera Authorization and Maintenance Act of 2014" or the "CAM Act," a bill to encourage police officers to wear a body camera.

"This legislation is important to any and all members of the public who encounter a law enforcement officer, and it is important for the officers themselves," said Congressman Emanuel Cleaver, II. "The goal is to increase transparency, protect the rights of all parties involved, and to provide better evidence for any police investigation, both for the citizens and the officers." The bill would:

Require that all state and local law enforcement agencies who receive Department of Justice grants have their officers wear a body camera.

Create a grant program to help agencies purchase the equipment.

Set guidelines for the use of body cameras.

Create a task force to study and make recommendations on community policing and to determine protocol in body camera training. The task force is also required to study the effectiveness of the usage of body cameras one year after implementation of the policy and the impact that citizen review boards could have on police misconduct.

Provide for a report on the Department of Defense 1033 program.

Due to the impending end of the 113th Congress, this legislation will be reintroduced in the 114th Congress.

  4. We ought to have congressmen/women wear cameras so we can see the kickbacks, special interests, fucking off instead of voting responsibly on issues, furthering party agendas instead of whats good for the country, and general misuse of public funds to further their own agendas.

  5. Put those cameras at the ONLY for profit company that Cleaver was ever a part of, his car wash, so we can see the water, suds and tax payer money go down the drain.

    Like Obama, Cleave has never worked at a for profit company in his life.

    Sounds like a good idea. Do the police put the camera on the perps body when he's dead or alive?
    Do they have a "Pay your bills you deadbeat grifting cocksucker" camera?

  15. 2010 STATISTICS

    93% of murdered blacks are killed by other blacks.

    BLACKS = 12% of U.S. total population; yet are responsible for 53% of national homicides.
    1 out of 3 black males, age 20--29, are under some form of criminal justice system supervision (jail, prison, parole, probation)

    Black males under age 18 = 1.8% of total U.S. population
    However, they are responsible for:
    54.3% of national murders and non-negligent manslaughter.
    34.3% of forcible rapes
    71.4% of robberies
    43.4% of aggravated assaults
    43.6% of motor vehicle thefts

    Now, the liberals, the apologists, the enablers, the blacks who feed off poorer blacks, the dim-witted, etc., will start talking about blacks being a persecuted minority group and how they can't help themselves.
    So, let's contrast the above figures to another American minority group. A group originally brought to America for cheap labor and who experienced such discriminatory practices as the anti-Coolie Act, the Chinese Exclusion Act, the Pigtail Ordinance, internment into concentration camps during WWII, etc.

    ASIANS = 5% of U.S. total population

    Asian males under age 18 = 0.6% of total U.S. population
    However, they are responsible for:
    1.0% of national murders and non-negligent manslaughter
    0.9% of forcible rapes
    0.7% of robberies
    1.0% of aggravated assaults
    0.9% of motor vehicle thefts

    I WELCOME ANY COMMENTS, ESPECIALLY IF DR. EVANS HAS ANYTHING TO ADD TO THE STATISTICS.

  17. When the Bureau of Justice Statistics collected homicidal rates from 1980 to 2008, they found that compared to Blacks, Whites were more likely to kill children, the elderly, family members, and their significant others. They commit more sex-related crimes, gang related crimes, and are more likely to kill at their places of employment.

  19. In the United States, a White person is almost six times more likely to be killed by another White person than by a Black person, according to FBI homicide data. In 2011, there were more cases of Whites killing Whites than there were Blacks killing Blacks. However, the mainstream media obsesses over Black on Black violence and rarely mentions the problem of White on White violence.
