Last week, the Post and Courier reported that Charleston Police Chief Greg Mullen, has expressed an interest in the extensive use of "wearable video devices" in order to document any interactions with citizens. 

I believe, that if these cameras are properly implemented, they will help both citizens and the police. Cameras could be great tools to gather evidence and could act as a safeguard against bad conduct from the Police. 

However, in order to serve both the police and the people, these cameras must not be turned on and off only when it only suits the interests of Police. The cameras should run the entire shift of the office wearing it. The technology is available and digital memory is now inexpensive enough to archiving this information. 

The police serve and protect, they should have nothing to hide, right? Bank and retail employees are under constant surveillance and it only helps those institutions combat wrongdoing and corruption.

No need to lock down your wireless network to keep those pesky neighbors from stealing your wifi. Comcast wants to use the router you rent from them at $8 per month for public hotspots.

This article in the State newspaper, Columbia, SC, presents an interesting argument. Should private sellers of firearms be required to conduct a background check of the buyer? How would the seller go about doing that? Particularly as to protected mental health aspects?

While I do not practice family law, today's decision of the South Carolina Court of Appeals caught my eye. The part of the case of interest to me relates to computer, the internet and applicable federal law which frequently is an issue in my specialty area-criminal trial advocacy in South Carolina.

 Here, the trial court excluded evidence related to the wife's infidelity husband obtained from her email communications. The court failed to believe that the husband obtained her password by simply observing it written down somewhere.

The Court concluded that the husband violated the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, 18 U.S.C.A. § 2515 (2000) which provides that "[w]henever any wire or oral communication has been intercepted, no part of the contents of such communication and no evidence derived therefrom may be received in evidence in any trial, hearing, or other proceeding in or before any court . . . ."

Interesting stuff!
