What a tragedy:

Once again a rapist was caught on videotape, and once again cops failed to see him, police sources said Thursday.

A 19-year-old woman was raped at knifepoint inside the Van Dyke houses in Brooklyn early Thursday – a housing complex with more than 200 cameras supposedly monitored around the clock by the NYPD.

Roughly 224 cameras feed live video to 30 small TV monitors. Each camera’s image flashes for only seven seconds.
