Rogers: Cell phones best option for police oversight
Placeholder Image
Hardly a week goes by now without the surfacing of a cell-phone video of police abuse, often of minorities. These private camera videos are providing the best and often only record of police confrontations, such as the shooting of Walter Scott in North Charleston, or the more recent incident at a pool party in McKinney, Texas. South Carolina just passed a law requiring police to wear body cameras, and while they may do some internal good, don’t expect to see the images in the news.
