Police officers in Ferguson, Missouri, have begun wearing body cameras after weeks of unrest over the shooting death of an unarmed black teen by a white officer and sharply differing accounts of the incident, officials said on Sunday.
Michael Brown, 18, was shot multiple times by Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson on Aug. 9, sparking nearly three weeks of angry protests in the St. Louis suburb and drawing global attention to race relations in the United States.
Law enforcement and witnesses gave differing accounts of what transpired before Brown was shot, with police saying the teen had struggled with the officer. Witnesses say Brown held up his hands and was surrendering when he was shot multiple times in the head and chest.
The discrepancy has revived calls for officers across the county to be outfitted with body cameras to help capture an accurate record of police-involved incidents.

Re: your "rule about naked people" -- How about people who take nude photos of themselves not be stupid and use storage devices that can be hacked, like cloud storage (or take any risks close to that)? Just HOW much personal responsibility does your generation need to shed before you get it through your thick skulls that it only costs $20 for a decent external hard drive these days? :|

Cauldrons varied around the world.
Most started teaching with pewter - though the metal was lead based and was, as such, poisonous it cooked slowly and allowed corrections to be made.
Later brass, or bronze or copper would be used, reducing the time it took, leaving less time for corrections, all the better for noting those of skill.
Some places, such as Germany, went straight for iron. Though it was the hardest to enchant, though it nullified fae ingredients, it worked well and lasted long, and the potioneering theory learned from finding replacement ingredients made them some of the best potioneers in the world.
In America native wixes used no copper and those that did were both feared and respected. If they could fight a mishibizhiw for their copper then surely they were either dark or powerful or possibly even both. 
Different cultures gave different metals different meanings.
