The ongoing debate over the release of police video is being taken up by the state legislature.
According to the Los Angeles Times, a new bill would require law enforcement in CA to release video from police shootings and protests.

There are also privacy concerns about members of the public being shown during highly traumatic experiences.
AirTalk looks at whether the rules on police videos can be standardized.
