The debate over body cameras seems to be missing a larger point: These cameras might very well give valuable information on what happened, though this is cold comfort to the victims and their families.

I am wondering why the discussion isn’t more about nonlethal solutions, like pepper spray, bear spray, beanbag guns, Tasers – even flashbang grenades and other devices that avoid deadly force.

I think expanding police options can only be a good thing and prevent needless tragedy.
