If a public servant has a propensity to abuse a delegated power then that power should be rescinded and abrogated.
Fully agree with this.

Just looking at the items the tech business claims will be improved or identified:

when gun is unholstered
when gun is fired
which direction
exact location

Was any of this information an issue with Michael Brown that might alter the outcome? ...or any other LEO involved in a shooting? I don't see it.

makes officers safer
monitored when in danger
document abuse of power

I'd sure like to hear the story behind these claims.

...and I can see this creeping into every hand gun increasing cost and extending every trial involving handguns.
