Cop turns off camera, beats up woman, gets fired, but no charges

Don't watch if you get think all cops are heroes, it may force you to re-evaluate your belief system.

There is not enough evidence to pursue criminal action against this cop? I call bullshit on this. If I were to beat my wife like that and a cop came by later, I would be in jail even if I claimed she fell. If she said I beat her, that would be all it would need. Her injuries are not consistent with somebody falling down and that would be obvious to anyone. If this were anyone except a cop accused of beating a HANDCUFFED woman like that, this would lead to prison time. Also I would like to see the part in the procedures where it says to turn off the camera as long as the detainee is still in the room.
