If anyone should be going to jail it is the officer involved in this case.
If anyone needs to be video taped, it is the police. I say people should do it more often, not less. I also think laws should encourage the taping of police encounters. They are often dangerous, and often the events of them are disputed. Video tape of police events will encourage good cops to be good cops and help remove the bad cops.
On a side note, I bet no officer is going to complain in a case where an abuse claim is made, but the video proves it to be false.
