Doctors increasingly treat people using tiny cameras, and some patient-safety experts are urging physicians to hit the record button. Marty Makary, a surgeon at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and author of a bestselling book on patient safety, said two examples of video recording show the potential benefits for both patients and doctors. At Indiana University, he said, researchers recorded 98 colonoscopies performed by seven gastroenterologists. They were unaware that they were being filmed and researchers found wide variations in quality.

SAN FRANCISCO - At 6 feet 4 inches, JR Curley is used to getting noticed. Just not like this. Ever since he got a pair of Google Glass in November, he has been turning heads at the grocery store, in restaurants, on the street, even at Disneyland. People approach him all the time to ask about his head-mounted, Internet-connected computer, which is worn like a pair of glasses. He spends so much time letting them try on Glass that his wife has begun referring to herself as the "Glass bystander.

At the heart of the Kelly Thomas murder case is a grainy black-and-white video that covers, almost in its entirety, the struggle between the homeless man and police officers at a bustling Fullerton bus depot on a summer night in 2011. As jurors in Orange County now deliberate the fate of the officers, they must determine what that video actually shows. Prosecutors say the tape clearly presents a confused and vulnerable Thomas who died because one bully cop picked a fight and another lost control and slammed Thomas in the face repeatedly with his stun gun. In the defense's telling, the video captures a violent and errant street person who gave police the fight of their lives.

It has been five years since a commission made up of prosecutors, defense lawyers, judges and others presented its startling report detailing holes in California's criminal justice system and making recommendations on how to mend them. One of the biggest problems the experts found was dozens of false confessions - assertions by people under interrogation that they had committed crimes when in fact they had not. The same panel reported that some jurisdictions, including some California counties and cities, had successfully responded to the surprisingly common phenomenon.

With her attorney Gloria Allred at her side, model Brittanie Weaver told a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge Thursday that in secretly taking video up her dress at a pet store, Julio Mario Medal made her feel violated, humiliated and "like a piece of meat. " "This has been a time-consuming and stressful battle to protect my dignity," she said in a victim impact statement. "I was so upset by what he did to me that I missed out on career opportunities, suffered a lack of trust in those around me and withdrew from two semesters at my university.

A bystander's dark, jittery video will allow a San Bernardino County jury to witness a sheriff's deputy opening fire on an unarmed off-duty airman, and to stop, pause and rewind the frenzy that ended with three muzzle flashes and the deputy on trial this week for attempted voluntary manslaughter. The district attorney thought the digital video recording, shot after a high-speed chase through Montclair and Chino in January 2006, was such damning evidence that Deputy Ivory John Webb Jr.

Since joining the Los Angeles Police Commission last month, Steve Soboroff has been making calls to some of the city's deepest pockets, asking them to pony up the $1 million he says he needs to jump-start an ambitious project: Outfitting LAPD officers with small video cameras that would record their encounters with people. His unorthodox approach to fundraising for the Los Angeles Police Department has paid dividends and got its latest boost Tuesday when the Dodgers and members of the team's ownership group announced a $250,000 donation to the effort.

For consumers seeking video treats this Halloween, the release of the sleeper hit "The Blair Witch Project" a mere 60 days after the height of its theatrical run is perhaps more shocking than whatever it was those three ill-fated student filmmakers found in the woods. The average time it takes for a film to go from theater to video is about six months.

Surveillance video taken from a Long Beach business shows police striking a man at least six times with batons, which was not captured in a YouTube video of the interaction that has drawn scrutiny in recent days. The video, which Long Beach police released to The Times, begins at an unknown time before the 4 1/2-minute YouTube clip . The surveillance footage shows the man--identified as 46-year-old Porfirio Santos-Lopez--appearing to punch at officers before he falls to the ground, apparently after being Tasered.

Kobe Bryant wasn't at Staples Center for obvious reasons Sunday. But his prerecorded message to teammates hung in the air of the Lakers' locker room after their 91-86 victory over the San Antonio Spurs. It can't be printed here, the curse words definitely of the stronger variety, but Bryant's appeal was delivered Saturday by a 30-second video recorded on General Manager Mitch Kupchak's cellphone. Kupchak visited him earlier that day before Bryant underwent surgery for a torn left Achilles' tendon.

As digital technology transforms TV, it may also put a crimp in one of the most cherished rights of consumers: the ability to record programs for personal use. Hollywood studios and TV broadcasters have been pushing for the aggressive use of new digital scrambling tools to prevent some types of programs--particularly high-definition TV shows and pay-per-view channels--from being taped or even stored overnight.
