Maryland police erect CCTV cameras to watch CTV cameras

TO Maryland, where CCTV cameras are being erected to watch CCTV cameras. CCTV camera vandals are thought to be operating in the area.

Prince George’s County Police Maj. Robert V. Liberati outlines the dream:

“It’s not worth going to jail over a $40 ticket or an arson or destruction of property charge.”

Is Mr Liberiti – what’s in a name, eh, readers – asking?

Local news reports that camera are being attacked, like the speed camera shot with a handgun and the camera that had its four legs severed.

Liberati adds:

“It costs us $30,000 to $100,000 to replace a camera. That’s a significant loss in the program. Plus it also takes a camera off the street that operates and slows people down. So there’s a loss of safety for the community.”

The community, meanwhile, seems to think otherwise…
