Lakin's curator insight, May 14, 12:46 PM

This is related to government and law because it is involving drugs and the law enforcement. Law enforcements want to start buying heroin antitode because it help or prevent a overdose. Many law enforcements are for this. Will this affect more people abusing heroin since law enforcement is for this?

 

Reed Klunder 's comment, May 15, 3:58 PM
I do agree that the law enforcement should go for this because heroin takes awhile to get out of the system. They don't want these criminals doped up on heroin while they are in prison. They want to get it out of their system as soon as possible so they can act like a normal human being, the officers don't want to deal with mindless people.

With police officers starting to wear these cameras, it will likely be something that I do when I get to the police force. I think it's a really good thing to require these because it will keep cops honest and prevent a lot of the brutality that happens. I would have no problem wearing one as an officer.

Andrew Beighley's curator insight, May 14, 3:58 PM

This article is about a new law that would make it mandatory for police to wear body cameras. wearing these would help to keep police officers from commiting any wrong acts like police brutality because they know that they would be being watched and recorded at any time. I think that this is a good idea because it would make sure that police are not abusing their power.

Jared Orth's comment, May 17, 2:36 PM
I think this would be a good idea, not only would it keep the police from abusing their power but also would see a lot that would go on if a cop were involved with some sort of crime.
