Glenn Grace started this petition to Corey Booker and

I'd like to have legislation passed where every law enforcement agency have their state issued body cameras always turned on. During any interaction with the public the camera can't be muted by the officer and the footage should be immediately available without any editing upon request.

Too many times the public has witnessed an officer be involved in an altercation and at his or her leisure mute or turn the camera completely off. Too many times the public has requested camera footage and the agency in question has held onto said footage for months until it could be edited in some form or fashion.

There is no transparency if the agency in question has the authority to edit such valuable material. This legislation should be passed into law so that every police officer be held accountable when they violate a person's constitutional rights.
