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.

    You should put those cameras on CPD tasers and firearms too!
