Frank M. Conaway Jr. wants police officers to wear cameras.
Conaway represents Baltimore city’s 40th District in the Maryland State House of Delegates, and has apparently “drafted legislation requiring police officers to have cameras placed on their person,” according to a letter to the editor he sent to the Baltimore Sun and posted to Twitter by Sun reporter Carrie Wells.
He’s calling for consideration of the legislation following news that 25-year-old Donte Bennett was shot and killed by Baltimore police officers in pursuit. The Sun reports that officers were “fighting with [Bennett] before he took out a handgun and was shot.”
