To the editor: I agree with James S. Muller that body cameras are part of the solution to curtail police brutality. However,
Until there is total transparency, it is up to the citizenry to record all police encounters at all times.
The American Civil Liberties Union has offered us a smartphone app that ensures that even if an officer confiscates or destroys a citizen's recording or the device used to record, the footage can still become public. I urge every citizen to make use of this, because ultimately it must be we the people who police the police.
