Illinois state trooper Tasers to have video cameras

Illinois State Police will soon have a new crime-fighting tool — a Taser cam.

Eventually, every state trooper will carry a Taser to subdue drunk drivers who become too aggressive when they’re pulled over; and each Taser will be equipped with a video camera to record each encounter and ensure the police are acting properly.

The officers will get their Tasers after they take classes on how to use them.
