You're wondering...perhaps...how it is that we've got so many great videos of that meteorite over Russia?
Turns out there's so much corruption over there in the courts and in law enforcement in particular that the only protect yourself against false charges or claims of liability is to have proof. Hence everybody has a dash-cam in their cars.
And some of the videos they wind up with -- Russians not being the world's best drivers -- are not to be believed.
