Obama to move on police body cameras after Ferguson unrest

Laurel, Maryland, Police Officer Aaron Waddell shows the body cameras he uses during patrols on September 17, 2014President Barack Obama will seek to release funds aimed at equipping more US police officers with body cameras following the racially charged fatal shooting of a black teenager in Ferguson, the White House said Monday. Calls for police officers to wear micro-cameras fitted to uniforms have mounted since the teen, Michael Brown, was shot dead in the Missouri town in August. The decision not to charge the white police officer responsible for the shooting triggered riots and nationwide protests last week while reigniting the debate over how minorities are treated by law enforcement. Obama is proposing a three-year, $263 million investment package which will increase the use of body-worn cameras and expand training for law enforcement agencies.
