Cop films chap on body-worn cam because he 'complains about cops a lot'. Chap complains

I'd always assumed that police bodycams were like dash-cams, always on just in case but on a loop so only a few hours data kept unless there was a reason to retain a clip. Looked at another way, if they can only be used when plod is anticipating a problem then surely plod should be defusing that problem. How does the camera differ from having a second plod alongside to act as a witness? Surely the cam is better than the possibility of the 2 plods colluding in a "creative" version of events.
