Vid In a case which may offer a glimpse of the future of law enforcement, an American policeman has been cleared of wrongdoing after shooting a man dead - with the aid of video and audio from a headset recorder he wore during the incident. After the decision, the video was released to the public.

KFSM 5 News broadcast this report, including the police headset vid, following the decision by Arkansas prosecutors in the wake of the shooting. Corporal Brandon Davis of the Fort Smith Police Department shot dead Eric Berry, 41, on November 11 after responding to a call for help from Berry's wife and finding Berry "brandishing" a handgun which he refused to put down.

 

As viewers will note, Brandon was wearing the headset above his left ear and standing in a doorway aiming his pistol in his right hand around the jamb: as a result, Berry's actions can't be seen. However prosecutors apparently accepted Brandon's assertion that he was holding a weapon and refused to put it down when repeatedly ordered to by Brandon.
