Here’s the thing about police body cameras: no one’s quite sure how they’re going to work out, how to pay for them, or who gets to watch the footage.
What is clear is that when cops are doing something like rescuing a baby from a partially submerged car, the video is likely to go viral as soon as it’s posted.
Unlike use-of-force incidents, there doesn’t seem to be too much concern about privacy issues or whether the recording was made in a one-party state or a two-party state.
If you don’t know what the difference between one- and two-party states is when it comes to recording people, it’s worth a Google search.
At any rate, the footage of this dramatic rescue is the kind of thing that can bring a lot of positive attention to officers and the agencies they work for.
