How do the Cops feel about it?

I don't know - as they are not saying - but from my own experience - I would say that they are not happy about it.

But they really can't complain about it can they? If they are doing no wrong - then it should be in their favor as to back up that fact (?) and they should be happy to have irrefutable evidence that they do the job properly - Right? And so be able to show without a doubt - to the public - that they do serve and protect properly.

But just prior to this camera test going live - we have a weird story show up on the news.

Flashing gang signs - Really?

#pointergate may be the most racist news story of 2014

A for the people Kshama Sawant type? One could could hope so - and for many more such to surface - Florida could very ( as well as the rest of the country ) much benefit from such.

Ya shes pretty cool. Im not too keen on the $15Now thing, but as for the rest of it, I support it, trying to get petitions right now. Need 3500 to get on the ballot, due Dec 8th I think.

Personally I think it would have been easier to crowd source the filing fee, using social and all of our activist group connections, but she wants to do it old school, which I respect. We'll see how it goes.

15.00 an hour - is - the only realistic ( at this time ) wage to mandate for all entry level workers. That is unless of course you feel that all minimum wage workers should receive public support as a given for employment and that they can then sometime down the road - graduate from having to receive public assistance to live "only" on the income from some employment.
