    Istook: Body cams for politicians' million armed FedGov agents.

    Mr. Obama says police body cameras would address the “simmering distrust” between law enforcement and communities of color. That distrust is tiny compared to the gap between Washington, D.C., and the rest of the country. And before buying cameras for local police, Mr. Obama should get them for the 25,000 armed officials in more than 70 federal regulatory agencies. Those are non-military and non-law enforcement agencies, yet some have commando squads and SWAT teams; they conduct raids not to halt violence but to enforce their regulations.

    There have been other counts of FedGov armed agents numbering ~1,000,000.
    I am responsible for my writing, not your understanding of it.

    Mr. Obama proposes $75 million in matching grants, footing half the bill to buy 50,000 body cams. America has almost 500,000 sworn local and state officers, so this covers only 1/10th of them.

    so $3000 for 1 camera? More wasted tax payer money...
    Armed and annoyingly well informed!

    There are two constants when dealing with liberals:
    1) Liberals never quit until they are satisfied.
    2) Liberals are never satisfied.
