Law enforcement can be more accurate and fair with modern technology and recordings

Glenn Beck

Filling in for Glenn Beck, Mike Opelka is joined by lawyer and author Dr. Wendy Patrick to discuss the dilemma regarding evolving technology and efforts to ensure privacy. Mike believes that technology could betray us with "hot mic moments," however Wendy shares her thoughts on how use of technology is impacting law enforcement and legal matters.

"We live in a day and age where everything we do and say is caught on video-camera, audio recording, whether it's inadvertent, whether it's intentional, whether or not it's going to be admissible in a court room," Wendy says.

Wendy mentions how the scenario in Chicago is a representation of what's going on all over the nation when it comes to how much are we going to be able to use of the things that are recorded. "Recordings are being used not only to solve crimes but to exonerate people from committing crimes." She mentions how it's a sword and a shield in the law enforcement world with how technology is used in police work.

"So it's not a surprise that unions across the nation would be taking a look at this just to make sure that these devices are used accurately and fairly," Wendy informs.
