David Brooks, surprisingly on-point today about why privacy is so critical to individual freedom pic.twitter.com/XZ8bpGDsVN

Fixed: Surprisingly off-point today...Because whatever the merits of our hero's arguments about privacy as GG reads them, the clear thing is that they had nothing whatever to do with his subject of cop-cams, unless that "intimacy" with the police goes a lot further than I'm comfortable with.
I find the timing Mr. Brook’s interest in “privacy” with Police body cameras concern trolling given we just passed the 1 year anniversary of a public resource stealing, welfare dollar swallowing Nevada cattle queen’s pointing guns Federal agents trying to enforce the law to thundering conservative applause and then he went on to tell us all about “the problem with the Negra” which didn’t get the same applause, but a quite fist pump when the cameras were off and a house full of “Strict Constitutionalists” for the summer. The spring of 2014 saw the Conservatives all jump on the “sacred privacy and anti-police militarization” band wagon for a few months until Ferguson made them return demanding everyone else have an unquestioning respect for authority and demanding municipal police forces meet all “problems” with a disproportional show of force. Now as body cameras and private citizen footage continues to show the result of the Conservative “law and order” approach to policing Mr. Brooks needs to rush out and muddy the debate with straw man argument.
