Chicago Police Chief Endorses Law Allowing Citizens to Video Cops

In another sign that HB3944 (allowing citizens to video record police officers) is gaining momentum, Chicago Police Superintendent McCarthy has gone on record as stating that he is in favor of the proposed change.

Superintendent McCarthy points out that video can be helpful to officers in  disproving false claims of police brutality.

I would also point out that video-recording can act as a deterrent to actual brutality cases, because the presence of cameras might inhibit police officers from doing anything that might prove embarrassing if seen on youtube.
