Capture

That would have been cool if Bill Clinton would have had one. If Ted Kennedy had had a body camera, ho, man!

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Walter in Long Island, it’s great to have you. I’m glad you called. You’re on Open Line Friday. Hello, sir.

CALLER: Hello Rush. Good afternoon.

RUSH: Thank you.

CALLER: I’d like to say I’m a first-time caller but I’m a longtime fan.

RUSH: Appreciate that.

CALLER: Back in the old WOR Channel 9 days. And I’d like to say this comment. From the most transparent administration in history, I’m trying to understand the body cameras for cops push by the administration. If we apply the fairness principle or simply, like you say quite often, what’s good for the goose is good for the gander, shouldn’t politicians doing the public bidding also wear body cameras? I’m talking on a local, state, and federal level. And I’m thinking of putting something on White House.gov, something to the effect of, “Mr. President, why don’t you lead and put on the first body camera.” How about that?

RUSH: Politicians, body cameras. That would have been cool if Bill Clinton would have had one. If Ted Kennedy had had a body camera, ho, man! This guy may be on to something here. I’ll bet you originally thought, “Ah, this is kind of kooky and Rush will have fun with this.” But this guy’s gotta point. The whole notion of body cams on cops, let’s be honest, you can make a case for it, but what’s the impetus? The impetus is they’re a bunch of frauds and cheats. The impetus is that the cops are the problem. The cops, the cops are the problem.

We need body cameras on the perps. We’re way of out of phase on all of this, folks. We are just totally out of phase. We’re almost to the point now where the Sharptons and Jacksons of the world may as well come out and say, “Crime is legal as a form of getting even for what happened at the founding.”
