I can't see the Hamilton Police getting cameras any time soon since every budget request gets denied by City Council.

More equipment to carry and be accountable for doesn't benefit the officer. They get in trouble if it breaks, they get in trouble if they forget to turn it on, they get in trouble if they don't download it accordingly.

All SIU investigations take time just as all criminal proceedings take time. Instead of instantly screaming that the police are doing something wrong, why not consider that a great deal of time and effort goes into training so the majority of Police are doing things RIGHT.

I'm sure there are bad apples who abuse their power but these people get rooted out and identified in due course.

Believe it or not there are good Police officers out there; doing a hard job that is scrutinized by everyone as it is. Why don't we have faith in these officers to do the job they were hired to do without putting them under any more undue stress on the job.
