Shooting Situation Question
OK...as we all are aware - The world is a changing place.
Technology is totally amazing these days.
The Question: Now that TINY digitial voice recorders can fit right onto a keychain & store a full 40 minutes of voice recording...would we be wise to buy one - carry one - & "click it on" before any possible or likely confrontation?
I'm also sure that SOON there will be tiny recorders that will be able to store that much sound and video & can be clipped right to a shirt pocket.
I am just thinking about how much "in police cruiser" voice and video has helped good police officers later on in court.
That provides an ideal "visual & voice" verification of the actual events that unfolded.
In a civilian shooting...How will the investigating officers know that you yelled 4 times for the threat to STOP!!! advancing toward you? Especially if the shooting is in an isolated area and there are no witnesses.
How will they know in court that you tried to cross the street to get away from the encounter & tried to avoid the danger numerous times?
It would be NICE if the "Powers That Be" actually hear your voice saying: "I don't want any trouble - I just want to get out of here - Get away from my car!"...or whatever.
How will the judge know that the Bad Guy REALLY DID YELL..."I'm gonna "F"ing smash your face in with this tire iron!!!" & "I'm gonna KILL YOU!"
What are your thoughts on this?
Seems to me that it would help eliminate some impending trouble in a justified shooting scenario.
Example: Pre~Road Rage Situation...You are driving along & some crazy horn starts blasting at you...click on the recorder right then & tape whatever might happen next.
Even if worse comes to worse & you (God Forbid) end up being the victim then you could at least gasp..."I Love You Mom" :dead:
What Say You All?
Lots Of Folks Are Packing Them Around
They are new technology to me though. Like an MP3 player with lots of digital voice record time.
This one has 36 hours of voice recording. I noticed that many doctors are using them these days instead of taking notes.
