SALISBURY, Md. (AP) -- Police in Salisbury are asking for help figuring out who spray painted five speed cameras.
An officer on patrol over the weekend noticed that two cameras on Route 50 and Davis Street had been spray painted with red paint. The numbers "1776" and "1774" were also spray painted on the equipment. Officers checked the other speed cameras and found that the same numbers were spray painted on two cameras located on East College Avenue and one camera on East Main Street.
Anyone with information about the vandalism is asked to call Crime Solvers at 410-548-1776.

O_o

So, who is at X1774?

I'd help by buying him more spray paint.  He'll be caught eventually if he keeps doing, right?
 
2013-09-09 01:13:17 PM
Yup we will get right on that. I always figured a good way to mess them up would be to smear vasaline on the lens or lens cover. It would be harder to spot then.

You want my help with one of the most corrupt police organizations on the planet?
yeah, soon as I get done blowing the Pope.

black spraypaint on a black lens
or a .17 pellet
or if you're particularly ornery, a .22 from a silenced rifle.  You do know how to make a silencer for a .22 right?

He needs to spray the cameras with the same color as their housings.

A bamboo pole topped with a small sponge with black grease smeared on it might suffice.

if this keeps up, they might have to send cops out to watch the cameras. while they're out there, they might even write some speeding tickets.

P.$. I think I $till owe them $ome money for a ticket. Good farking luck with that. I will never, ever pay it.

Too complicated.

Use an empty 20oz or 1liter soda bottle taped to end of barrel.

I'm ok paying for a ticket as long as I make collecting it more costly than the ticket is actually worth.

1774- The Intolerable Acts, including warrant-less, unreasonable search and seizure.

1776 -  We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

If they catch this person he should insist on trial by jury.

FTA: The numbers "1776" and "1774" were also spray painted on the equipment.

Maybe it's unfair to profile, but those numbers cause me to suspect that young men on sport bikes, and young asians/latinos in hot-rodded imports are not to blame.

Narrow your search to white guys in American vehicles that received at least two tickets from the vandalized cameras in the last 30 days.

You're welcome.

Around here, the speed cameras are at ground-level, so you don't need a pole anymore.   In some areas where vandalism has become a problem, they have installed a camera to watch the camera.  It's only a matter of time until they install a camera to watch a camera to watch the camera.  $afety is just that important.

Watch the number of accidents increase at those intersections.  The culprit should be charged with negligent homicide for every death that occurs as well as be marked as an accomplice to any infraction observe at those locations.  This should happen until such time the cameras are fully functional again.

Also, the individual should have to reimburse the city for estimated monies lost as well as face criminal charges for vandalism.

I'm a white guy in that area, but I drive a Nissan and haven't gotten an automated ticket in over 4 years.

Not that it was me, but I'm totally sympathetic.

More effective than mine, but not as simple or disposable.

I call it a wash. Use either or.

It would really help to convince me that this wasn't about money if companies didn't do the setup for free and take a straight cut of the profits.

How does this not quality as illegal and immoral?

You mean the same Maryland police who just illegally released the names, SSNs, DOBs, places of birth, etc. of thousands upon thousands of MD citizens to members of the general public because they can't keep up with their paperwork?  Link

Yeah, fark those guys, fark them and the horse they rode in on....

No, you are still good. Your criteria ruled me out and I didn't do it.  So far you're golden.
