We need surveilnce for our protection. Please continue reading.
The surveillance I’m talking about is NOT of the people but FOR the people. I’m talking about body cams on police, this is for the protection of the people. I would push for it to be a requirement for all police officers to be body cammed. It would be required for these feeds to available in real time, so the people can keep the people meant to serve and protect do just that. There will be one exception and that would be feeds involving ongoing investigations. Upon completion of said investigation it shall be required that all video and reports be released to the public. This is all to ensure the police do there job and to hold them accountable when they don’t.
I would push for the same for all public servants and government officials. We elect them and our taxes pay them. They are our employees and we have the right to ensure they do their job and hold them accountable when they don’t. On top of the real time stream of the feeds I would desire an A.I. program to monitor the feeds and flag incidents that may require further investigation.
As for protecting the people against surveillance we need to make it as impossible as we can while making it still possible to investigate crime. We need to have absolute proof that a crime may being commited. If the laws are inadequate to do so we need to change them. If the laws are violated by government agencies or an employee the need to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. We can be safe without infringing on our privacy or rights.
