CBC News - ...A camera made by Axon [a.k.a. Taser International] was disqualified from the field trials due to RCMP concerns about control over the videos. "After obtaining further information on these cameras it was learned that the recordings from the Axon camera are sent to a third party housed in the United States. As a result of this, the Axon was removed as an option for the pilot project." [LINK]
What stupid moronic idiot would develop a business model where gigabytes of data, per day per officer, is sent back and forth over the Interweb-thingy to some distant location (somewhere...) and held under strict control (of someone...), all to convert what should be a hardware purchase (with logistical support) into a pay-through-the-nose-forever "service".
It's not like anyone could see this objection from a mile away...
