Buried at the bottom of a WRAL story that purports to be about technology reducing privacy, but is actually about the amount of accountability being introduced by ubiquitous video recording technology: (emphasis added)

Wake County Sheriff Donnie Harrison says more and more people locally are using their cell phones to record arrests that occur in public and that more people submitting complaints are using video.

When we’re doing our job, we shouldn’t have anything to worry about,” Harrison said. “That’s why I wish we had cameras in every car that we have. We have so many complaints that come in that are false. It helps us.”

Wow. We’ve been saying that for years, but to hear it out of the County Sheriff’s mouth…

Anyone running against him is going to have to make a strong case to one-up a guy who’ll go on record as saying that.
