    Having that evidence for everybody to see the encounter, beginning to end, would matter a lot.

Regardless, camera or no camera he is still out of a police job at Ferguson.

    That's my point. The camera is not perfect in all situations. Given there was initially a big struggle (he was shoved and struck several times) there is a good chance that the camera wouldn't record anything beyond that missing the critical moments. not saying cameras would be bad or not useful just not 100% reliable or solve all problems. In this case it could possibly not mattered at all.

    I agree with "Go-Pros"... But just beware what you wish for...False narratives like the one employed here would be gone for good with something like that...

    I support them too, but they will still find a way to introduce the false narratives.

    Oh they'll try alright, but as with this case will look increasingly foolish in doing such.
