The next time an officer in blue pulls out a weapon, say cheese. Because attached to the barrel might be a lipstick-sized camera that starts videotaping the moment the pistol is drawn from its holster.

Such gun barrel cameras are part of a high-tech law enforcement agenda designed to help prove who's in the right--and the wrong--during a shootout. Of course, there's no accounting for the occasional "malfunction." Nor would we be surprised if some of those clips mysteriously found their way onto YouTube. That aside, it sure beats Thailand's idea of shaming errant cops with Hello Kitty armbands.
