Mike Barnicle with U.S. Sen. Tim Scott on body cameras for law enforcement

As the idea of body cameras on law enforcement officers gains support across the country, MSNBC's Mike Barnicle discusses the issue with U.S. Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC), who has provided committee hearing testimony in favor of requesting federal funding for local law enforcement departments that seek access to cameras and quoted a study that found the technology has led to a “90 percent in drop in complaints against law enforcement officers, and a 60 percent drop in force used by officers." But there's the lingering question by local law enforcement departments about what strings will be attached to the funding. Asks Mike: “You think providing body cameras is part of the federal government’s plan to take over local law enforcement?,” Listen to Sen. Scott’s answers here. On MSNBC.
