Camera phones to blame for violent crimes, says FBI Director

According to FBI Director James Comey, cellphone cameras and viral videos are partly to blame for the increasing violent crime rates across several U.S. cities this year.

Comey, in a forum at the University of Chicago Law School, admitted that although several other factors contributed to the increase in violence in U.S. cities, cellphone cameras have played a huge part in it, particularly because they increase anxiety among members of the police force.

He further said that, in general, the relationship between law enforcement and local communities remains strained, and the distance between the two continues to grow, “incident by incident, video by video.”

Officers allegedly feel “taunted” by young people with cellphone cameras during their encounters.

Ed Yohnka, spokesperson for the ACLU of Illinois, however, disagrees with this observation. “Police officers who respect civilians and the law will only enhance the reputation of their departments when recorded by civilians,” he said. “And officers should be trained to conduct themselves with professionalism regardless of whether a camera is recording them.”
