Cameras-pedestrians, police officers would be largely unusable - The Point

This had to be an innovation, ensuring that the police controls are smooth and burr-free. But the reality is quite different. Cameras-pedestrians who equip the forces of law and order would be in reality for the most unusable, reveals Le Canard enchaîné.

For shooting video is correct, it would be desirable that another officer takes position behind his colleague with another camera at the moment of the action.
