After-freddie-gray.htmlIn a year of violent police encounters, much of the conversation has been about cameras: Who should have them, what can they achieve and how can they improve the broken relationship between the police and African-American communities?

Copwatch, an organization created to document police activity and possible harassment, has been at the forefront of the activity since its founding in 1990. But in the wake of Michael Brown’s death in Ferguson, Mo., last August — after a white officer shot him and left his body in the road — the movement has gained a new urgency.

The deaths of Eric Garner in Staten Island, Walter L. Scott in North Charleston, S.C., and Freddie Gray in Baltimore have fueled more outrage and debate because in each case, raw video propelled the incidents into public discussion.
