ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - The sheriff of New Mexico's most populous county will not require his deputies to use body cameras because he says the media would use the video to unfairly criticize the officers. Bernalillo County Sheriff Manuel Gonzales told KOAT-TV in a story Tuesday that the video "gives a lopsided, one-sided story." His stance has drawn criticism from the American Civil Liberties Union and the New Mexico Foundation of Open Government. Bernalillo deputies have been in nine shootings in the last four months.
