How were police unaware of videotaped beating?

I work at Courthouse East, where the assault that has now been widely viewed on the Internet took place. The article in the April 5 Sun ("Viewers of shock video shed light on Baltimore assault") states that "While police were troubled by the video, they said this week that they were not aware of the incident." There are at least three "spy eye" cameras plainly visible from the courthouse steps. Are these cameras filming/monitored 24/7? If so, someone was asleep at the switch!
