Overall, this was an interesting paper to read. I appreciate the innovation. The writing was also clear and easy to follow. Thank you for your contribution. Given the innovative method outlined, I wonder if some discussion about potential ethical drawbacks of publicly available footage, BWC video and otherwise, warrants some discussion about citizen and practitioner concerns about surveillance, digital records, and social equity?

By the latter, I mean potential concerns about who’s likeness is likely to be captured and why, what are the drawbacks to this, how should video footage be contextualized, etc.? I think reflexivity and positionality are important to discuss, too. How do these concepts factor into the methodological approach outlined?
