Realistically the only time the footage would be viewed would be when there's an offense that warrants it, such as an officer shooting a suspect or a reported abuse. There's no way you could have every officer wearing a camera and every moment of video reviewed. Most of the solutions I've seen that are in place now don't keep every minute of every day recorded. They buffer 30 minutes or so and when the officer hits a button to indicate it needs to keep the footage it does.

Think about the drawbacks to flying cars: 1.) Amount of energy required to keep a car in the air versus on the ground. 2.) How many broken down cars do you see on the side of the road every day on an average commute? Now imagine they all crashed from an altitude of 100' or more. 3.) FAA would never allow flying cars to travel at low altitude over residential areas, thus forcing all flying cars to fly over existing roads, negating any benefit of a flying car, since it would still be "stuck in traffic" 4.) They'd have to have VTOL (Vertical Take Off and Landing) or we'd have to have runways built at every house, commercial building, etc. Until they come up with an unlimited source of energy, a mechanical device as complicated as a flying car that never breaks down, and sufficient airspace to make it practical, flying cars will remain science fiction.

I still remember WordPerfect 5.1 running on DOS, once you had all the shortcut keys memorized, was lightning fast and did just what it was supposed to. I get so pissed off clicking on the little blue lightning bolt every 5 seconds to undo something Microsoft thought it was helping me "fix."

Adapt. Enjoy. Survive.
