New York AG announces police body camera reforms following Daniel Prude’s death

Sept. 21 (UPI) — New York Attorney General Letitia James announced that from now on her office will release police body camera footage when an officer kills an unarmed civilian instead of leaving the decision to do so to the local authorities.

The police reform was prompted by the death of Daniel Prude who was killed earlier this year in police custody and by the fallout caused by local officials releasing such footage months after the incident occurred.

In a press conference held on what would have been Prude’s 42nd birthday in the city where he was killed, James said her office will be taking over the responsibility of releasing the police body camera footage as leaving it to local authorities has caused confusion, delays and the hampering of transparency.

“We will no longer wait for local authorities to determine when videos should be made available to the public, and

NY attorney general will decide when to release body camera video in police officer-involved civilian deaths

New York Attorney General Letitia James said Sunday that her office will now decide when to publicly release body camera footage of police-involved deaths of unarmed civilians to avoid a repeat of what happened in the wake of Daniel Prude’s death in Rochester.

“Up until now the release of footage has been up to the discretion of local authorities, but this process has caused confusion, delays, and has hampered transparency in a system that should be as open and available to the public as quickly as possible, publicizing the footage, as soon as we have shown it to the deceased family,” James said in a press conference Sunday.

James traveled to Rochester to make the announcement on what would’ve been Daniel Prude’s 42nd birthday. She met with his family before the press conference and told reporters she promised them justice.

MIT Engineers Have Created a Completely Flat Fisheye Lens

Illustration for article titled This Perfectly Flat Fisheye Lens Could Help Shave Down Camera Bumps

Fisheye lenses make for some cool photos, but their most distinctive feature is that the glass is curved. The need for multiple bits of curved glass makes fisheye lenses both bulky and expensive. However, engineers at MIT and the University of Massachusetts at Lowell have figured out a way to make a fisheye lens that’s completely flat and could be applied in consumer devices, medical applications, and more.

The method of flattening something that is known for being bubble-like is pretty clever. To do it, the engineers used something called a “metalens,” or a flat piece of glass measuring just a millimeter thick. On the back of the metalens, they then carved teeny structures to scatter incoming light in a way that produces the same type of ultrawide, panoramic images a fisheye lens would. More specifically, the metalens is made from a transparent piece of calcium

New body camera policy in New York aims for more transparency after death of Daniel Prude

New York’s attorney general said Sunday that her office will begin “proactively” releasing police body camera video when unarmed civilians die at the hands of officers, a move prompted by the suffocation this year of Daniel Prude in Rochester.

State Attorney General Letitia James said the new policy, which is effective immediately and aims to bring more transparency to investigations that her office is handling, will no longer allow local police agencies to determine when to release video.

“This process has caused confusion, delays and has hampered transparency in a system that should be as open as possible,” she said. Instead of waiting “months and months,” James said, her office’s special prosecutions unit will begin releasing video after it has been shown to victims’ relatives.

James said the policy was necessary to “avoid the situation
