How Video Cameras Have Changed The Way Crimes Are Solved

With the news this week that the terrorist suspects in the Boston bombings were caught largely due to the video of retailers along the street-front, the question arises how has video changed the way suspected criminals are apprehended?

In the Boston case, the video surveillance of retailers provided the most helpful evidence in resolving the case.  Cameras are everywhere nowadays and they are being used more and more in criminal cases.  In one recent Los Angeles case, a video camera outside a storefront caught cops lying in a police report about the details of the stop and arrest of a suspect.  The video was used in Court to show the police were less than honest in the case.  This case shows that not just criminals are caught, but also law enforcement themselves.
