He failed in his duties but I can understand that in the dark, he was mistaken but I don't see abuse here. The cop was seriously regretful of his actions immediately after he realized his mistake. I don't see the need to blow this out of proportion. It was a mistake, and yes he should be punished for it but he didn't do it out of malice.
What better way than to expose the computer to all the idiots in the world. I know I've certainly learned a lot exposing myself to the masses online. I'd say both my common sense and over all intelligence has taken a dramatic leap upward/forward that would not have happened if it weren't for the internet.

An anonymous reader writes "The Montréal Policemen's Brotherhood is proposing that officers be equipped with uniform-mounted cameras that can be used to video-tape various interventions. The union says in other jurisdictions where police officers are equipped with point-of-view cameras, the use of force by officers and assaults on officers drops by as much as 60%. One system is currently being tested in Edmonton, Alberta. Arguments for and against the project here (french). There are evidences cops need these cameras to refrain themselves but if cops get them, maybe being a glasshole isn't a bad idea after all." Link to Original Source
cylonlover (1921924) writes "A team of scientists at Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore has developed a new image sensor from graphene that promises to improve the quality of images captured in low light conditions. In tests, it has proved to be 1,000 times more sensitive to light than existing complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) or charge-coupled device (CCD) camera sensors in addition to operating at much lower voltages, consequently using 10 times less energy."

And it looks like you aren't capable of any intelligent response. Gun owners should be held to a higher standard of responsibility. This is not a game and peoples lives are worth the sacrifice of forcing gun owners to be more responsible with their guns.
someone stealing your car is not the same as being a responsible gun owner keeping your guns locked up. my home has been broken in to 3 times over the 10 years and NONE of my guns were stolen because I was responsible and had them locked in a 600lb safe. Your car analogy is just dribble an intellectually dishonest.
Guns get stolen from irresponsible gun owners. Those people who are negligent with such a tool should be punished.
