CCTV - Police Brutality captured but not prevented

With the conviction of Custody Sergeant Mark Andrews for his assault on Pamela Somerville we might think that CCTV had worked. On the contrary it failed completely to prevent his crime.

This Daily Mail article has details. One suspects that had she not been older, small and a woman - or, perhaps more tellingly, 'middle class' - less fuss might have been made.
