Maybe you have to leave fast, so you have to take a quick shower, and meanwhile cook -insert some microwave food here-. It's a good plan, so you get out of the shower, dress quickly and you can already eat what you just "cooked".

I think he means having a microwave that knows exactly how to cook the food depending on the code. I usually cook everything for 50 seconds, or if it's really cold, 1:30. Sometimes the outsides are burning, but the middle is cold. The code would instruct the microwave to heat at high for 1 minute, let stand for a bit, then heat at medium to finish it off. Leaving you with the perfect leftover lasagna that tastes like it just came fresh out of the oven!

Or do what the people who make vocaloids do. Have him record syllables and sounds in different tones and expressions for later use. Not only would it prevent the need to have him recite every word, but it would be a lot faster, and more realistically possible.

Just a thought...Id love to see Go-Pro on serving men and women in Afghanistan, So they could get good quality documentaries from the Solider POV and not have civilian cameramen running about in a firefight and potentially hindering soldiers and reducing combat effectiveness also they could justify what was happen down there, (Or prove they done something wrong), and have proof to back it up.

You know the cameras would be "out of order" all of a sudden at some point, right?
#547 to #31 - John Cena (08/03/2013) [-]
This idea is really good. Also politicians should wear go pro cameras all the time so we would see if there is some funky business going on. Maybe doctors as well, just to be sure that they don't kill people. Maybe every company that repairs stuff, so we know if they are actually fixing **** or not. AND my neighbour also, he is a bitch I wanna know what he does all day. might as well everybody....
#257 to #31 - John Cena (08/02/2013) [-]
A camera doesn't compare to the emotion and intensity of actually being there during the time; If something like this were to happen it would be taken out of context too much, and if a cop did the right thing in the moment and the camera didn't catch something that the cop did, and the cop reacted it could really **** over a cops career, and in all reality, cops have instincts that you just can't feel on a camera recording causing cops to do these actions, sincerely a real cop.
User avatar #53 to #31 - hatbraze (08/02/2013) [-]
Oh just shut the **** up. Yes, sure its a fine idea. Now lets record everything that citizens do at all times as well because everyone will think that idea is JUST as reasonable. Oh wait, the NSA did that and everyone flipped their **** because its a breach of privacy.

Citizens aren't entrusted with guarding the lives of men and women around them. And it said active duty, not everyday life, so basically if they have nothing to hide, there should be no problem.

Finally we could skip the month long trials because 'we don't have enough proof'.
#306 to #31 - wewumbo (08/03/2013) [-]
Are we going to ignore that fact that its 'publicly available'? The only way that this would work is to have the recorded actions of the policemen stored away until needed, then releasing it in court of what have you. If the government didn't hold onto the information prior to actually needing it, or even worse they live streamed this **** you would have people constantly watching the police. Im not sure that is a good idea considering criminals can pretty much track the police, pretty ironic eh? Police brutality is bad but this isnt the way to stop it, courses to becoming one should be more stricter. IDK red thumbs maybe? I just didnt expect anyone to think this was a good idea but you dont have to take my word for it I aint even American (ASSUMING this was directed to American policemen?)

Well that's because it would be during the cops job, obviously. Not their personal lives. People want their personal, at-home lives to be private. Why would they care if they have a camera on them when they're at work? They're not going to be having sex with their wife while on duty.

In a normal job in an office, your boss is always watching you and you are surrounded by coworkers. A cop is often by himself with no one to monitor him, meaning he can get away with things people with normal jobs can't.

With most (I'd say most being an understatement) cops being great, there's no need to equip them all with cameras.
User avatar #477 to #427 - deathstare (08/03/2013) [-]
Turns out I wasn't working today, wasted gas...
Anyways, as police are in a position to easily wrongfully convict someone after planting drugs, or assaulting them, and most usually have the court side with them- It would make sense for them to always be monitored. In this world, the case is always the spoiled apple ruins the bunch. I think the safest option would be to have the camera's on while on duty. It's a way to make sure nothing illegal or wrong happens, as well as enforcing professionalism while dealing with the public. To be honest, the person who refuses to show, usually has something to hide, and good cops have nothing to hide.
User avatar #516 to #477 - wolvesbrickwall (08/03/2013) [-]
So then why do people have a problem with NSA? I mean if you're a good person, you have nothing to hide.
User avatar #576 to #516 - deathstare (08/04/2013) [-]
NSA is completely different. They're not paying the public, they only want to monitor them. It also goes against privacy acts in that the a person has the right to his/her own privacy while s/he is not working. The policemen are working and they are in a position to easily alter someone's life

So just because some are cunts (there are cunts in every job), all of them deserve to be constantly watched? Why don't we just monitor everyone while they are working? That we if you **** up on the job, or do something wrong, the company has evidence to reasonably fire you.

Some cops (and I say this from experiences told by people abused by the police in my country, Spain) can harm innocent people a lot, people that simply don´t deserve such punishment get police brutality from ************* who use their power to hurt a person, and most of them get away with it. They can even kill them. That isn´t so frecuent in every job.
It´s actually a very good idea to record policemen while on duty.

P.S: You can see videos of spanish manifestations in wich the cop tries to break the camera of the recorder (often using some excuse) so there isn´t any evidence of them abusing their power.

Well than advertise that for the police officers of Spain. I'm assuming the main argument was referring to the U.S.
User avatar #320 to #312 - rapsuskiller (08/03/2013) [-]
I think this could be referring to any country, or the whole world.

They aren't being watched, they're being recorded.
More often than not, it won't ever be seen. But if a citizen declares that the cop was out of line, they can investigate it. It's as much for the fair treatment of the people as the ease of the judicial system.
User avatar #73 to #72 - wolvesbrickwall (08/02/2013) [-]
Isn't that the same as the NSA "recording" what a citizen does? I mean most citizens are innocent, and anything recorded about them won't ever be seen.
User avatar #74 to #73 - oharo (08/02/2013) [-]
No, because everyone has a right to privacy.
Due to the power of being a police officer, and the potential for corruption, recording their actions *while on duty only* is justified imo.
User avatar #75 to #74 - wolvesbrickwall (08/02/2013) [-]
I think you're overestimating the power of a police officer. I'd rather the every action of Congressmen be watched than a cop, but i guess that's just a matter of opinion.
User avatar #78 to #75 - oharo (08/02/2013) [-]
Well I think both should.
You'd be surprised what a cop with low morals will do when they need to meet their quota. One pulled me over (I made a rolling stop, fair enough) and was adamant that I wasn't wearing my seat belt. It was only when I said that I'd contest that charge in court that the officer backed down.

Now, a camera wouldn't have helped there, but some people can be brutalized for no reason. The camera prevents that.
User avatar #79 to #78 - wolvesbrickwall (08/02/2013) [-]
I don't blame the cop for that. You think he likes being a dick? Maybe, maybe not. I'd blame his boss, the one telling him that if he doesn't bring in some more "revenue" by the end of the month than he'll be let go.
User avatar #82 to #79 - oharo (08/02/2013) [-]
Regardless for why the cops behave like they do, the camera prevents them from brutalizing citizens for no reason. That is why I'm in favor of it.
User avatar #83 to #82 - wolvesbrickwall (08/02/2013) [-]
I just don't think it's fair to the cops who do serve with honor and integrity. Well if it's ever to be it'll go through the public and voting and such, so it's up to the people.
User avatar #116 to #83 - oharo (08/02/2013) [-]
I agree that it sucks that honest cops would have to do it. But I still think the benefits outweigh that. But yes, it'd be down to the people's votes.

Anyways, it was nice to have a civil debate over something, man. Good talk.

Some jobs require the employees to be under constant surveillance. This is nothing different.

A lot of departments are starting to use lapel cams. The ones that I know about from my city's department have to be turned on when the officer interacts with the public. I don't see an issue of invasion of privacy when they're only used as a tool to gather evidence, saving tax dollars in court fees. The cameras protect the rights of civilians, too. An officer will be less likely to abuse someone, knowing it's being recorded and that it would be reviewed in court. When either side makes a case against the other, the video doesn't lie. What makes people feel paranoid about this?
#80 to #31 - ScruffytheJanitor (08/02/2013) [-]
They already have dash cams on their vehicles. It's also impossible to have ALL the video publicly available because that **** would take up so much space. Imagine being the guy who has to do that for the LAPD. Uploading 12 hours worth of video for around 9,000 officers every day. Do you know how much space that **** takes? A minute of FRAPS recording is already 4.45 gigs.
#442 to #80 - thefates ONLINE (08/03/2013) [-]
Sounds beneficial to the economy to have all of those new jobs to store the video!
Especially beneficial if we produce the storage systems and cameras here or in Canada.
#517 to #442 - ScruffytheJanitor (08/03/2013) [-]
Even if they had enough people to upload the sheer volume of videos that would be produced, no internet is capable of uploading 31399200 gigs of video a day, nor a website able to handle that amount.

the cop wearing video cameras is ******* ridiculous, you know how much that would cost to equipped everyone with a camera and have to save all the footage ever? It would be billions of dollars each day of unnecessary costs for paranoid ***** .

Cops, unfortunately, are humans. Humans are prone to mistakes and other human errors. Even more unfortunate, cops are in a position where mistakes can REALLY hurt or affect people.

I think we should do anything in our power to stop things like this from happening. If we have to outfit every cop with cameras, so be it.

I fully agree that cops are humans who make mistakes every now and then. But this also works both in favor and against the use of cameras. If they do cross the line then the camera shows exactly the needed evidence to why they did, so it's a good thing they have to wear it. But if a little mistake is ripped out of context and then used against the cop, he might get punished really hard for just pushing away someone who's been harassing him just out of sight of the camera for example .... So it's a good idea, but we need to be careful on how to use it if it does get implemented.

I was also thinking what about under cover cops, then they could easily have their cover blown..
I liked most of these ideas but I agree the cop one was ******* dumb.

First off it wouldn't be as expensive as you think, expensive yes but rather than every cop wearing video cameras what about just ones specific ones that have been complained about frequently, like if a cop had been reported as always using far more force than necessary or misused authority.

Homeland Security spent $430 Million on radios nobody even knows how to use. At least cameras would be useful.

I don't think people would ever leave their houses. They'd just download audiobooks featuring Morgan Freeman's voice and then they'd have substantially less socks.
