I have just found a fantastic solution for filming police encounters.Submitted by capitalist52 on Wed, 06/15/2011 - 14:46
I was looking for a camera to use for filming myself shooting and training. Something I could put on my firearms or hat, well I found this neat little camera. The Tachyon OPs HD www.tachyoninc.com/opshd.php , this thing not only is fantastic for filming myself practicing shooting drills, but also would be extremely useful for filming police encounters. It is small, light, incredibly rugged especially with the shield installed, has an internal rechargeable battery, records to sd cards which could be easily stashed in a pinch, and has a whole lot of mounting options. Just think about it, your hands are free, your not all in the cops face with an obvious camera, and you appear as more of a bystander. I think that these cameras need to be with everyone who thinks they will have an encounter with the police. Remember that police have qualified immunity, which basically means that police can do just about what ever they want, and it is their word against yours, unless there is video evidence which says other wise.
The camera is the new gun.
