here is the tech support webpage for the company that makes the oakland 
police chest-worn cameras.  which apparently sometimes "malfunction":


here is a snippet from a story about someone arrested saturday night:

Prosecutors said Casillas, a philosophy major at San Francisco State 
University, had struck one officer in the face with the bicycle and 
injured another who tried to stop him. He pleaded not guilty Thursday to 
one felony count of assaulting a police officer.

Briggs said that according to police reports, three officers who witnessed 
the alleged attack were wearing video cameras on their chests, but all 
three said the devices malfunctioned.

Briggs alleged that officers had beaten Casillas, and that authorities had 
later denied him medical attention for cuts to his face and abrasions on 
his arms and legs.

"If the police say what happened happened," Briggs said, "my client should 
not have those injuries."
