If video is recoverable then the bricking process is defective.

IANAL, but it would seem to me that all you would need is one instance of them wiping video evidence to make it's way through the courts, for that practice to be banned. ..."Yes, your honor, several of us took video of these officers beating down that poor defenseless grandmother. Then one of them got on the radio, and we noticed that all of our phones went dead."

No, because in Java you declare variables to have types.

But if those types are not final, you don't know the dynamic subtype of concrete values (and the concrete methods to call) in advance, and you're forced to do the same kinds of optimizations that Javascript does. Seriously, look at current VM tech again. Type feedback and speculative inlining are of legal drinking age in the US by now.
