at this study in the Milwaukee police department just a level under patrol officers in Milwaukee the receive body cameras we work with them to conduct what's gonna randomized control trial or be assigned a two hundred fifty officers to receive cameras two hundred fifty to not receive cameras and we follow them over an eight month period to see how body cameras affected please behaviors and clean the interactions what we found overall was that sitting planes went down so as to the war cameras were less likely to have complaints against them use of force did not change among all officers and the interactions with citizens did change a little bit you would think that this would have a moderating effect on everybody that police wanted to be on their best behavior that the public would not make outrageous claims of there with this camera there yet I understand that there are policies that allow a lot of discretion officers may turn off the cameras the departments may or may not release video it it seems to me that that leaves an awful lot of grounds for perhaps undercutting the credibility of the cameras yeah that's the only concern then and one thing to remember here is that even though we've been talking about like Camelot and there's there's still a relatively new technology and a lot of departments are still trying to catch up to best practices of the time so a lot of department simply rolled up body cameras without understanding how to use them bass and so you're talking about the plane cameras to eleven hundred officers training them etcetera etcetera they're still playing catch up a little bit in terms of those policies so that's absolutely correct there's departments are using them perhaps not the most transparent way and I can undercut their credibility why would it not be in the best interests of the police to do run the the cameras all the time if I were a conscientious officer I would want everything I did recorded yeah I think the returns on the bench that best interests of the department as a whole is simply cost instead subsiding shockingly expensive to many people how much it costs to retain body camera footage integrative Armand have to maintain it for at least thirty days and more often it's it's ninety two hundred eighty days and and I'm out of a server Stacey have to have the whole that much high quality video footage is very very expensive and so that's why the women when officers turn on their cameras and sometimes it might limit that too much again losses too much discretion in cases you you indicated when you appeared on my nighttime talk show that the Milwaukee police force is about eleven hundred officers and that too have continuous coverage by those officers and and the storage that would be several million dollars that that seems awfully high yeah that's correct I mean the I mean even even with the way they're using right now which is you know pretty well busted their day the department is mandated that officers turn on the cameras during most interactions with community members and most officers follow that mandate even in that sense I think they're spending over a million dollars per year just on the video footage retention has it is so they would increase that words there on all the time we're talking about a ten fold or even twenty fold increase in costs because you are buying a certain amount of credibility for the police department that is worth something it is yeah and I think that's where that's where the balancing act is happening to try to determine how much they can afford how much officers are more cameras all still meeting the bottom line what is the public response regarding the use of these cameras overall very positive so we did a survey of committee members in Milwaukee and there's been several national surveys I'm asking very similar questions at the national level and every study that's ever been done has found that people are very positive and one officers have body cameras but of course that's usually what the cabbie out that they're actually using them frequently turning the cameras on and using them to improve transparency accountability what recommendations would you make based on on the study the that the police departments around the country should do it in your view cost of course allowing for it to happen yes we do we have a number of recommendations first and foremost is that you have a very well developed policy and in in your police department before you implement the body camera program so be very stockholders number resources out there for departments to draw from and they're creating their policies but has the very thoughtful make sure it's very clear when officers can turn on the cameras are when a when a when a mustard on the camera's on make sure you have a process in place to actually review and check to make your officers are complying and then of course when we're when we're talking about releasing body camera footage department seem to be very clear what their policies are and be proactive in releasing footage anytime there's a major incident because that that's only gonna boost

"After members debated articles for most of the day yesterday and didn't cross the finish line John Laurence reports after fourteen hours of debate house judiciary chairman Jerry Nadler calls a sudden timeout before taking final votes the committee is in recess G. O. P. ranking member Doug Collins immediately voiced his opposition you chose not to consult the ranking member on a schedule issue of this magnitude so typical this is the killer this is a kangaroo court they were talking about one major result of Nadler's last minute delay the votes weren't taken in the middle of the night we want to do it in broad daylight so first thing in the morning so everyone can see exactly what's going on Republicans say this move was a case of show boating Collins was less than pleased with that first time out we didn't know we had plenty of more members and other things we could have often been here all night we chose to say we set all we need to say they said all in the same we're finishing is a that was the most lack of integrity thing I've ever seen by a member of especially a chairman another result of narratives move no additional amendments can be offered which means no more debating Friday's vote is expected to go along party lines a full house vote on the articles is expected next week if president trump is impeached the matter then goes to the GOP led Senate I'm John Lawrence the topic continues at twenty one till with Jim Bohannon we're talking with John Malcolm vice president for the institute for constitutional government and director of the center for legal and judicial studies at the heritage foundation online at heritage dot org and that in a way it's it's it's it's rather sad to all this is so predictable then they'll be a house vote before Christmas which will be largely party lines the president will be impeached and the new year will start off with a Senate trial in which bar nibbles block buster of revelations there will be an acquittal of the president it does seem rather odd that deserves everybody knows this dance step we have to practice it anyway yeah look but I I think this is a real shame so sue the Jerry Nadler who is presiding over there the hearing is going on now should meet the same Jerry Nadler who said in nineteen ninety eight when we were talking with the Clinton impeachment hearing you said the following there must never be a narrowly voted impeachment when impeachment is supported by one of our major political parties and opposed by the other such an impeachment will produce divisiveness and bitterness in our politics for years to come and will call into question the very legitimacy of our political institutions I wish that did today's hearing now that would listen to that turned out there but we are have been parked down this road and is it's going to and exactly the way you just said there will be an almost exclusively party line vote to impeach the president in the house and it will be an almost exclusively of not exclusively party line vote to acquit him in the Senate looking ahead to that the Senate trial and it is easy to do that of course because all that we have just said it is barring a stroke of lightning is exactly what's going to happen the Senate trial other been various reports there have been reports that the senator Mitch McConnell of Majority Leader who will call the shots and again the constitution gives Congress the house pretty much total discretion in impeaching the Senate pretty much total discretion in conducting the trial of McConnell is reported to be in favor of a slam bam thank you madam speaker approach to get out of the way that we can improve the new nafta and a host of other things the president I've heard reports is in favor of more of a show trial the Democrats were so happy with what they've done let's let the whole country see exactly what it is that they have done that I heard another report that said well no maybe the president's now leaning more toward the Mitch McConnell idea of get out of the way what difference would it make whether it is a lengthy trial or a quickie trial in the Senate well the result will end up being the same in all likelihood he will end up being acquitted and not removed I mean look I think that senator McCain all is saying you know trials are unpredictable things in some of the senators including Republican senators are a little bit unpredictable to the votes aren't there now we know the votes aren't there now let and this and go about the task of getting your reelected in getting these Republican senators re elected the president would like to be able to to show the how unfair this is Britney love to hear from hunter Biden on others for you not only don't know exactly what the hunter Biden's of the world would have to say but that might also give the Democrats a chance to call people like John Bolton Mick Mulvaney you don't know exactly what they're going to say so I think at the end of the day McConnell gets to set the terms of a lender probably be shorter than the president would like but we'll see is there any likelihood at all of the Democrats have an advantage to keep secret a lightning bolt an absolute bomb shell that that we've not heard a word about during the house intelligence committee hearings nor the house Judiciary Committee hearings they're going to drop it at the Senate trial in hopes of swaying awful lot of Senate Republicans it would take twenty of them have to go along with the the forty seven Democrats do you think there's any possibility of that kind of a bomb shell as it being hidden out there I have a hard time imagining that that could possibly be the case but then again if you had told me when Brett Kavanaugh is having his confirmation hearing that there was a woman named Christine Blazey Ford out there I would have said no way same thing with Anita hill and Clarence Thomas so I have a very hard time imagining that particularly since is already been tried before the house intelligence committee but yeah you know I I knew in Washington I.
