UK Is Crazy, Really Really Needs Surveillance

A few years ago, I ran a post The UK: Post-Apocalyptic Nightmare? which engendered a lot of heated responses, focusing on eye popping crimes caught on CCTV there.

Today, I ran across another stunning example of their need for CCTV.

A report claims over 1000 ambulance workers are being assaulted each year in London, noting that

"Front-line staff are having their fingers savagely bitten by drunks and attacked with fence posts."

Speechless.

The solution they are proposing is body worn cameras. It could help document the incidents, but I am not sure how it will stop drunk out of their mind people from such crazy actions.

Is this common in the US or anywhere else?
