A Texas jury has charged former police officer Roy Oliver with the murder of 15-year-old Jordan Edwards. Oliver claimed he and his partner were in danger when he fired on a car occupied by Edwards, but his body camera footage and eyewitness testimony showed otherwise. As Edwards' case shows, body cam footage can be used to corroborate or contradict police accounts of events. But critics worry that body cameras don't do enough to protect citizens and could even be used against victims. What do you think?
Should police officers be required to wear body cameras?
