    Your telltale video camera shake can identify you

    HERE's a way to shake off anonymity – literally. Footage from wearable cameras contains a "motion signature" unique to you. The discovery could identify police wearing body cameras, but also let authorities single out protesters uploading footage, say. Shmuel Peleg and Yedid Hoshen at Israel's Hebrew University of Jerusalem collected footage from 34 people who wore GoPro cameras on baseball caps. They ran it through an algorithm that recognized motion signatures particular to each person.

    Life Without Police

    Among young black men in Bedford-Stuyvesant, the New York Police Department's two-weeks-and-counting "slowdown" in street-level policing isn't just the news – it's personal. Whereas white New Yorkers in Manhattan may not have enough interaction with the police to discern first-hand that drug arrests, low-level criminal summonses, and citations are on the decline, young black men in Bed-Stuy, a historically black Brooklyn neighborhood of high-rise public housing, low-rent row houses...

The 45-page report, released on Monday, follows the death in July of Eric Garner on Staten Island after an arresting officer placed him in a chokehold, a tactic that was banned by the Police Department two decades ago.

    A Pickens County Sheriff's Office deputy has been fired after an internal investigation found his tasing of an unarmed man in a wheelchair was “inappropriate” and “unjustified.” “Gracious alive, why did they tase me? I wasn't a danger to them,” said 65-year-old Parker Mansell, Jr., who's been using a wheelchair to get around since a stroke left him paralyzed on the right side of his body 16 years ago.

    An average of 545 people killed by local and state law enforcement officers in the US went uncounted in the country’s most authoritative crime statistics every year for almost a decade, according to a report released on Tuesday.
