    After Ferguson: Calls for Police 'Body Cameras'
    NEW YORK — Aug 23, 2014, 6:42 AM ET
    By BARBARA ORTUTAY AP Technology Writer
    Associated Press
    What if Michael Brown's last moments had been recorded?

    The fatal police shooting of the unarmed black 18-year-old in Ferguson, Missouri, is prompting calls for more officers to wear so-called body cameras, simple, lapel-mounted gadgets that capture video footage of law enforcement's interactions with the public. Proponents say the devices add a new level of accountability to police work.

    "This is a technology that has a very real potential to serve as a check and balance on police power," says Jay Stanley, senior policy analyst at the American Civil Liberties Union.

    The case supporters make is simple: Cops and criminal suspects alike are less likely to misbehave if they know they're being recorded. And there's some evidence supporting it. In a recent Cambridge University study, the police department in Rialto, California — a city of about 100,000— saw an 89 percent decline in the number of complaints against officers in a yearlong trial using the cameras.

    The number of times the police used force against suspects also declined. After the trial, the cameras became mandatory for the department's roughly 100 officers.

  • So yes, there will be a jump in pre-market on Monday. If the NASDAQ index stays neutral or positive and does not tank, this stock will Break $9 on Monday or Tuesday.

    One of the suggestions that has come out of the protests in Ferguson, MO is that police officers should have to wear cameras to monitor their interactions with the public. Based on speculation that this will go into effect, investors have been pouring their money into shares of Taser International and Digital Ally, companies that make video surveillance equipment.
    Stock for Digital Ally is up 100 percent to $7.86 per share since August 9, the day that Mike Brown was shot and killed by a police offer, Darren Wilson. For Taser, it’s up 25 percent to $15.55 for the same period of time. Digital also says that inquiries about their products have spiked.
    The Mayor of Miami-Dade county, Carlos Gimenez has already promised to make body cameras mandatory for all officers in his jurisdiction, one of the largest in the country.
    “I want a camera on every police officer,” Mayor Gimenez said at a town hall this week. “I think if there had been a camera, a lot of what happened could have been avoided,” he added.
    “Gimenez’s strong words put Miami-Dade… on the forefront of a national debate over police cameras in the wake of the Ferguson shooting of an unarmed teenager by an officer,” The Miami Herald said.
    There are a number of others who also support the move. Cameras have been found, in a study in Rialto, CA, to improve the behavior, with complaints about aggressive policing dropping nearly 90 percent. Even the public behaved better with the cameras rolling.

    Digital Ally Continues Yesterday’s Upward Momentum

    Published: August 22, 2014 at 3:29 pm EST
    By: Bill Ashton

    Digital Ally, Inc. (DGLY) is up over 13% during trading today, following the 21% gain it recorded yesterday. The continued momentum can be attributed to a potential countrywide order for Digital Ally’s body cameras, to be worn by police officers. Police brutality has become a national conversation after a police officer shot and killed an unarmed 18-year-old, Michael Brown, in Ferguson, Missouri, one of several similar incidents in the last two years.

    Strong protests and violence in the city followed, as people took to the streets to demand justice for the police officer Darren Wilson’s allegedly unlawful actions. Authorities responded by declaring a state of emergency in the city and deploying the National Guard to curb the protests.

    On August 18, The Wall Street Journal published a report that detailed the benefits of body cameras for police officers. The report highlighted the case of Rialto, Ca, where the adoption of the practice for over a year resulted in a 60% decline in the number of cases in which officers used force against citizens, while complaints filed against the police dropped 88%. The same day, the Times reported that the Mayor of California called for the passing of an ordinance that would mandate all police officers across the state to wear body cameras.

    Fort Worth, Texas plans to have 600 cameras deployed by end of year.

    But not all of these guidelines are being adopted. In Mesa, Ariz., where the police department now has about 160 cameras, a pilot test showed that when officers were given the discretion to record, many decided not to do so. Now the department has a mandatory recording rule, according to Mesa’s chief, Frank Milstead. Fort Worth, which plans to have 600 cameras deployed by the end of the year, does not require recording in most instances, though officers are encouraged to capture encounters with peopl

    You will definitely see a closing over $9 sometime next week. Clearly, your head and shoulders charting isn't working.

  • michelle_michelle34 by michelle_michelle34 Aug 22, 2014 3:18 PM Flag

    I am confident by end of year to see that with new sales.

  • More volume today than yesterday. And price is higher. That is good!!!! And end of day they are chasing the stock.

  • And volume of 7-8 million each day. This points to accumulation and big further interest next week!!!!! Pay dirt.

  • michelle_michelle34 michelle_michelle34 Aug 22, 2014 4:22 PM Flag

    Actually if you look at the chart it has been 4 days of higher closing price. That is a very strong signal of continued interest and new people chasing the stock up.

    Digitial Ally finds fresh friendly reception among investors

    By: Gary Strauss August 22, 2014 12:53 pm

    It’s been a heck of a week for investors in Digital Ally DGLY and Taser International, makers of video surveillance equipment used by law enforcement officials.

    In the wake of unrest over the death of Ferguson, Mo., teen Michael Brown, Digital and Taser have soared on speculation that larger numbers of law enforcement agencies will have their cops wear body cameras, which could provide both video evidence of interactions with suspects and help curtail potential violent exchanges.

    Digital surged more than 21% in early trading before closing up 13% to $7.94 Friday. Shares have jumped over 100% since Brown’s Aug. 9 killing by a Ferguson Police Officer. Taser, TASR whose main products are electronic stun guns, eased 1% to $15.71. Still, Taser is up nearly 27% in the wake of Brown’s death.

    A Cambridge University study found that complaints against officers in Rialto, Calif., were down almost 90% during a recent year-long study.

    “This is a technology that has a very real potential to serve as a check and balance on police power,” Jay Stanley, senior policy analyst at the American Civil Liberties Union, tells the Associated Press.

  • Chief Milstead, of Mesa, said that in addition to reducing complaints, the cameras have been helpful in interviewing witnesses and suspects after a crime. “When you get them on video, they’re locked into a story that you can play back in court,” Chief Milstead said.

    Cameras have also helped train new police and confront problem officers. “We had a lawsuit we just settled, where you could see the officer was about to go toward this woman, and just then the camera turns off,” said Michael Chitwood, the chief of police in Daytona Beach, Fla. “When the camera comes back on, her front teeth are knocked out.”

    The officer claimed that the camera malfunctioned, but a forensic examination by Taser concluded that the camera was working perfectly.

    “We settled the lawsuit because of that question, Why would you want the camera off?” Chief Chitwood said. “You turn the camera off because you knew you were going to knock her teeth out.” The officer later resigned.

    In Rialto, in 2012, there was 24 complaints about excessive force by the police. In 2013 after cameras were on all police, the excessive force complaints dropped to 3. Think of the the tremendous savings of legal lawsuits.

    Rialto Police Chief Tony Farrar believes outfitting police officers with body cameras is going to become the norm.

    "This is something that's changing the face of law enforcement," he said.

    Farrar is the first police chief in the country to outfit all 75 beat cops with body cameras worn on lapels or eyeglasses. Others are now looking at Rialto as a test case for their own department-wide programs.

    "People tend to behave a little better when they know they're on camera," Farrar said.

    Wrong. 4 days of increasing closing price and 3 days the volume was between 7-8 million shares.

    That tells you there is demand.

  • You can feel the pressure about to explode.
