    Eventually they will stop turning them off, or be fired for doing so, because too many cases will be lost if they do not have the footage. Had a prosecutor tell me once that juries have become obsessed with DNA evidence. That is all they care about in murder trials. The same will happen here--people will want to see the footage that captures the alleged confessions/statements against interest. No footage and the juries won't believe them.

    Footage should be required to convict, if an officer is patrolling, they must have it turned on or nothing they say should holdup in court, because it shows either malicious intent or incompetence- those officers that are guilty of this ought to be disciplined or fired.

    Nothing can be regulated perfectly. Any new technology, policy or rule will introduce its own set of new problems, you just have to try to minimise them. There are obviously practical and technical measures that can be taken to best manage these cameras but the vagaries of human nature, technology and politics will always find a way to mess things up.

    Why not stop all brutality? If the general public weren't so brutal, we wouldn't need so many police officers in the first place.
