Chicago Mayor Emanuel: Fear Of Being Recorded May Be Discouraging Cops From Doing Their Jobs

CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"


Mayor Emanuel says the YouTube Effect partly to blame for the rise in Chicago crime.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel has opened a Pandora’s box, saying that, “We have allowed our police department to get fetal and it is having a direct consequence.” The mayor was referring to the “YouTube Effect” is that the news over the last 15 months have impacted their instincts
— do they stop or do I keep on driving? The mayor says police say, “‘when I stop here, is it going to be my career on the line.'”

Some police aren’t happy with what Rahm Emanuel is implying about police and their work.

FOP Chief Dean Angelo says record gun seizures and a record number of arrests negates any notion that Chicago police are lying down on the job. But 9th Ward Alderman Anthony Beal says that police aren’t doing their job, and the mayor’s comments prove it. Emanuel’s comment comes in response just days after black aldermen called for the firing of Garry McCarthy.

Opponents of Emanuel’s statement criticize the justice system or media that may unfairly convict police officers, not the cameras that show the truth. Police officers have faced an increase in the number of claims against them — either unofficially at scenes, or officially through police administrative channels. Their own bodycams are welcomed by many police officers, who are relieved that their camera will show that they didn’t — as many claims say — use inappropriate force, use inappropriate language, or touch a person inappropriately, etc.


In Laurel, Md. the police department has fully implemented the use of what’s been coined the “lipstick camera,” a miniature camera that’s tacked onto the glasses of police officers. RT’s Ameera David reports.

In Laurel, Md. the police department has fully implemented the use of what’s been coined the “lipstick camera,” a miniature camera that’s tacked onto the glasses of police officers. The department says it can provide valuable evidence in court for both sides in case of a dispute, and therefore benefits both officers and citizens. But there are still concerns over the privacy issues at hand, such as what becomes of the countless hours of video footage and whether officers have the power to edit the video.
