Schmalleger (2015) discusses installing cameras in police cruisers.
Is this a good idea? What negative impacts might occur? How might it impact policing?
What other comments or concerns do you have about the segment in the book? What does this teach us?
According to Schmalleger (2015), Weeks v. U.S. (1914) "forms the basis of what is now called the exclusionary rule, which holds that evidence illegally seized by police cannot be used in a trial".
What is your opinion of the exclusionary rule? Is this rule a good or a bad thing? If it is good, can there be times when it can lead to a bad result? Do you think that this rule keeps police in check?
