Or by the police themselves, as is happening in some jurisdictions now, including right here in San Diego.

I don't know if i'm interpreting your position accurately, but you seem to be saying that it's OK as long as the cops can get away with it. Your position seems to be that, as long as cops check for the presence of cameras in order to make sure that they don't leave themselves and their towns open to lawsuits, there is no real problem with them circumventing constitutional protections as long as they don't go beyond what you consider to be a reasonable level of violence and rights violations.

Is that about right?
