Should Police Officers Be Required To Wear Body Cameras ?
The chart above is from a recent Rasmussen Poll -- done on July 24th and 25th of a random national sample of 1,000 adults, and has a margin of error of 3 points.
It shows that an overwhelming majority of Americans (70%) think police officers should be required to wear body cameras when on duty. This has been suggested to correct perceived police abuse. But an interesting part of this poll is that a majority thinks this will help protect the police more than it would help victims of police abuse.
