I accuse you of murder and rape. Under CAS process, I need no evidence other than this email saying you murdered and raped, and you would be immediately convicted. If you would like to appeal your sentence, you may pay a fee and then prove that you did not in fact murder and rape. While your conviction is under appeal, the sentence will still be carried out.

At the beginning of the digital revolution it was common to say that digital was killing music. The reality is that digital is saving music.” - Edgar Berger, chief executive of the international arm of Sony Music Entertainment
I was told by a neighbor that someone at Bob's house practices witchcraft. They sent a snapshot of candles being burned. As it is statistically more probable that a female would be the witch, we investigated bob's household, but having not found a female presence, we assume it must be him practicing witchcraft.
Your test for witchcraft, while accurate, amounts to due process giving him the opportunity to prove he is not a witch. If we are truly to follow the same tactics, we should simply burn him at the stake, and if he wants to appeal afterwards, he may pay a $50 administration fee.
Wouldn't the smart thing be to hook the camera into the car battery, so as to prevent such a problem?
I suspect it is more likely that the Police Union demanded it to prevent recording of "private matters" that happen on the job. On occasion, we all have to make phone calls home, etc while at work. Even the police, while on the job, have the right to some form of privacy during those situations.
I recommend giving them a button to "redact" the footage by flicking a switch. Similar to commercial skipping technology in DVR's. Don't erase it, but mark it so that any normal monitoring of said footage would be "skipped" unless there was specific reason to go back and view it - such as a claim of excessive force.
When Righthaven finally got bitchslapped into oblivion, I was sad. I didn't know where to turn for my Stoopid Troll entertainment.
Then I figured out how to "Keep Calm and Carreon" (You see what I did there?) but that seems to have been short lived too.
But now, I have John Steele and Prenda Law. I have to tune in daily to see what antics they will be up to next. Every day it's a new episode! I want to see what silly things Brett Gibbs will get into today. Will he finally get the discovery he seeks? Or will the real Alan Cooper one day mysteriously walk into the courtroom? What role does John Steele play in all of this? The season finale is heating up to be one of TechDirt's most exciting ever.
