No, not usually. The law is typically written to specifically exempt law enforcement and emergency responders.
It's pretty sad that situations like this lead down the road to a nanny state.. but the people texting and driving don't seem to realize they're the driving it in that direction.
Also, to the comments about the popo getting a free pass, in some places LEO's and emergency response are specifically exempted under the law to use their data terminals and conversely their GPS apps.
Sorry Apple.. but as much as I would love the iPhone 6 Plus, the fact that it still doesn't have a stylus input is a deal breaker for me. I'm eligible for an upgrade in two months. So it's either a toss up between a regular iPhone 6 or a Note 4.
Personally, I'm waiting for a good decentralized solution.
Hopefully Bittorent Chat will fit that.
As someone in the business of selling law enforcement equipment, I'll tell you right now, most of the body cams available for law enforcement are compete and utter crap.
Not only that, they don't have an effective back office solution to manage all that video. Sure you can dump the video onto a hard drive, but it needs to be indexed somehow so it can be searched for later by officer name, date, etc.
A few companies are trying to make body worn cameras that don't look like blair witch recordings, but at this point, there's still at least a year away before anything usable arrives.
Stock Ubuntu.. the wifi worked well however.
Forgot to mention, I never tried installing OSX on it. I may however, once the bugs are worked out of the EFI bootloader.
You're missing a letter my friend, I said UX31LA..
PC: Gigabyte GA-Z97X-UD5H, i7-4770K, 16GB RAM, GTX 780 Ti.
Tried Mint Linux 18 Cinnimon & KDE, Ubuntu 14.04, Debian 7.6
None of them would even boot on my computer, even after dicking around with bios settings for an hour.
Laptop: Asus Zenbook UX41LA
After pissing around for half an hour with bios settings, I finally managed to get it to get farther than the grub bootloader. Things seem to work, but KDE crashes randomly, Cinnamon and Unity don't remember window locations and have their own oddities. None of them let me control screen backlighting, even after trying all the 'hacks' posted around the net.
Then I find out that video performs even worse with the open source Intel video drivers.
I'm all for Linux on servers, I own and run several, but damn, it shouldn't take a bloody engineering degree to get a GUI OS to install and work properly.

I hear Facebook is making a 3D version, but it will require a Rift to play.
> Well done Facebook. It's taken you a year to put a Samsung note display in a plastic box, and add extra cables.
Reality is overrated.
Does it really matter the how or why? It's obvious it's gone far beyond simply scanning emails to target advertisements. Today CP, tomorrow thought police.
