Happy Saturday y'all! Below, I have rounded up some things for you to think about this weekend:

1. There have been a few instances of police-murdering-civilians this week, and this article delves a bit into the issue of using body cams. The article is definitely worth a read, but the TL;DR is: when body cameras are used to hold both suspects and police officers accountable, that's transparency, whereas when they are only used to hold suspects accountable, that's a method of surveillance.

That's all for this week's edition of Weekend Thoughts. Until next week, keep thinking wilder.
