It’s about time!
New legislation from a Bay Area assemblyman would dramatically expand public access to police body camera videos in California.
The measure, Assembly Bill 748 from Assemblyman Phil Ting (D-San Francisco), would make public footage from police shootings and other cases considered to be in the public interest, such as police uses of force or violent political protests.
Ting’s legislation seeks to break a stalemate at the state Capitol on whether to ensure public access to body camera videos.
The bill strikes a blow directly at California’s ruling Democrats over their cozy relationship with the state’s brutal law enforcement community.
