Proposal would criminalize deletion of body camera footage

A proposal to criminalize deleting footage from police body cameras was filed Tuesday by a Lowcountry senator. If the bill becomes law, it would be a misdemeanor to delete body camera footage with the “Intent to alter or influence the outcome” of a criminal action, criminal or internal police investigations or civil proceedings. Kimpson led the charge in 2015 to pass a law that requires South Carolina’s law enforcement agencies equip its officers with body cameras. The bill, which had languished in committee for months, regained traction when it became public that the shooting of Scott by Slager was caught on camera by a passerby who used his cellphone to record the incident. In December, a judge declared a mistrial after the jury could not reach a decision, after Slager’s defense team argued he feared for his life when Scott got control of Slager’s stun gun.

Tongan wife can prevent a husband from traveling
