A White House petition is calling for lawmakers to create and sign a bill into law that would require all state, county, and local police to wear a body camera.

The petition comes amid tense protests in Ferguson, Missouri over the fatal shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown by police officer Darren Wilson on Aug. 9. 

From Whitehouse.gov:

Due to the latest accounts of deadly encounters with police, We the People, petition for the Mike Brown Law. Create a bill, sign into law, and set aside funds to require all state,county, and local police, to wear a camera.The law shall be made in an effort to not only detour police misconduct (i.e. brutality, profiling, abuse of power), but to ensure that all police are following procedure, and to remove all question, from normally questionable police encounters. As well, as help to hold all parties within a police investigation, accountable for their actions.
