Taxpayers paid for Police body cams to keep them safe, yet Police have the ability to indiscriminately turn them off, rendering them useless to solving crimes, especially crimes of police brutality or excessive force.  
As in the case of the murder of George Floyd, all officers had their body cams turned off. If a third party hadn’t filmed the incident, there would be no video documentation of this man’s death in police custody. 
This happens time and time again, cameras do no good if they are turned off. The police have shown that they are incapable of using body cams  correctly so we need an independent organization in charge of these body cams.  Police may request a camera be turned off for personal reasons and while on break. 
This organization needs some background in law enforcement to ascertain which streams are forwarded to FBI or Police IA groups while at the same time they are released to the press. 
Law enforcement had their chance to show that their organizations are lawful and responsible. They have failed. 
Many organizations have checks and balances built in to prevent corruption. It is time for law enforcement to be held accountable for their actions.
