New York Police to Wear Lapel Cameras?

Lawyers representing the city of New York have filed a request for a stay of Judge Scheindlin's decision and court order pending appeal. Scheindlin found components of the NYPD's stop and frisk unconstitutional in her decision and ordered several remedies, including the installation of independent oversight, changes to the UF250 (stop and frisk) form, an overhaul of the stop and frisk program itself and mandatory lapel cameras for police officers.

  Raw Story
I wonder how many lapel cameras will malfunction, be knocked off in a scuffle, be obscured behind an object...
