Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill wants police departments to get body cameras, before they're eligible for federal funding. She said it would be a "great legacy" to come out of the death of Michael Brown. He was the unarmed teen shot to death by a Ferguson Police officer on August 9th. McCaskill, a Democrat, said police are now at a disadvantage. That's because people on the street can take video of the end of a police encounter and not record the first part of an encounter. It could give the impression an officer over-reacted, when they haven't. McCaskill made the proposal in response to reporter questions during a visit to a business in Springfield. "We've now got to work on a variety of issues that are bigger and frankly more important in some ways than this incident because we need to impact police officers all over the country," Senator McCaskill says. "One of my ideas that I am hopeful I will get the Senate to embrace and ultimately become law, it seems to me that before we give federal funds to police departments, we ought to mandate that they have body cams." Ferguson Police do not have body cams and do not currently use patrol car dashboard cameras, either. That means no official recording of an arrest or confrontation is created.
