All I am saying is: Give Glass a chance.

Apologies to John Lennon, but here are my questions of the day. 

How would things have turned out differently if George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin were both wearing Google Glass and recording their confrontation? 

Zimmerman says Martin was acting suspicious and, when confronted, threatening. 

Martin can't give his side of the story. 

What if both parties were recording everything on video? Would either of them have behaved differently knowing a recording was being made? 

And if the confrontation ended the same, would the court case have turned out differently with a separate recording of each perspective?

Surveillance by police and government can be abusive. But aren't there major benefits to individual citizens being able to record their own experiences while in public? 

UPDATE: I wrote a column some time ago that relates to this concept:
