PRD is the answer
24 October 2014 | by whitman2See all my reviews

Video surveillance HD cameras would have helped in cases like this. They are sorely needed to record activities in every public space. Every cubic inch should be covered in high resolution. There should be no expectation of privacy outside one's own home. Everyone should have the right to walk safely in public. The only way to ensure this is to have a record of public conduct. We already have some video surveillance systems in place. I myself have installed dash cams in my vehicle, and I wear a couple of concealed body cameras in public. In the near future, individuals should have the option to wear a Personal Recording Device (PRD) that uploads Point-of-View video to the Internet through Wi-Fi. That should put an end to this kind of American Tragedy.
