Cops Are Buying Cameras. Should You Buy the Camera Company? 

On Monday, December 1, 2014, President Obama vowed to build more trust between communities and police. According to WhiteHouse.gov, “Part of the proposal is a new Body Worn Camera As Partnership Program, which would provide a 50 percent match to states and localities that purchase body worn cameras and requisite storage. In fact, the proposed $75 million, three-year investment could help purchase 50,000 body worn cameras.” 

This is great news for underserved communities. But it is also great news for Taser International, a leading provider of the video-cam of choice for police officers, the Taser Axon Flex.

Could cameras on cops prevent future Ferguson and Staten Island tragedies?
