The Tennessee House has approved legislation that would prohibit public release of police body-camera videos for at least a year. The Knoxville News Sentinel reports the bill potentially keeps video of alleged police misconduct under wraps for even longer. Video of possible misconduct or law violation by an officer would not be released until reviewed by the responsible agency. It would also keep video evidence used in a trial or official proceeding to remain out is public review. Civil Liberties and open recorded group opposes the plan. Some lawmakers want to delay the legislation for a year or allow further study.
