However, if 70 people are leaving their laptops behind then I am sure many others are taking the wrong bags and/or gear by accident.

I did that once. Picked up the wrong Thinkpad. Didn't notice until I was at the gate.
Opened it up to do some work...Hey, this isn't mine.
Rush back to get mine, and "Where's the dude that belongs to this one?" Oh well. Not my problem anymore.

Have you ever been pulled over for speeding, and the cop lets you off with a warning? Doesn't mean you weren't speeding. You know you were, the cop knows you were, the person you just passed knows you were.
And if you're the mayor of the town or other bigshot, you are even more likely to be let off with a warning, rather than getting a ticket.

Clinton got let off. Doesn't mean she didn't do it.

Doesn't matter, though. This election was decided years ago.

No, people are not interested in 'you'. They are interested in that 0.5 seconds when you make the silly face when you miss the football thrown by your buddy.
This, they will then make a meme out of.

With no permanent record, that 0.5 sec would be totally unremarkable, not noticed, or long forgotten. With a potential continuous recording (even if only 10 secs at a time), they can review later, and extract those 2 frames where you look absolutely ridiculous.
These glasses just move the recording from a camera that someone will notice, to sunglasses that will go unseen.

Enjoy your meme fame.
