(CLOWNCAR HQ) Police are searching for vandals who destroyed nearly a dozen speed cameras in Washington, D.C., according to the Metropolitan Police Department.Sorry, I'm looking as hard as I can, and I can't see a downside here.
Authorities discovered 11 speed cameras throughout the nation’s capital were damaged between 2:30 and 3:30 a.m. Tuesday. Officers reported some of the cameras wiring had been ripped out from where they were mounted.
If your city is too lazy to send out officers to do traffic patrol, screw your cameras.
And frankly, a city with 77 unsolved homicides out of 116 (exactly 2/3rds) for last year alone should probably be spending its police budget somewhere besides nannycams for a ticket mill. (And of course, this has nothing to do with DC MPD's chief until late 2016 being an affirmative action incompetent bimbo with about twenty minutes' time on the mean streets before she promoted right up the ladder to chief, and finally promoted right out the door. That she's now head of security for the NFL tells you everything you need to know about their priorities too.)
Whoever is doing this, if they can't catch murderers, ROWYBS.
Hopefully they manage to take out all of the damned things in the District of Clowns.
They tried traffic cameras in Rome, and they lasted 3 days before every one of them was ripped out and stolen.
That's a moral that writes itself.
