Maryland Security Cameras Installed… to Watch Security Cameras
We find this hilarious! New security cameras have been installed in Prince George County, Maryland, after acts of vandalism disabled several traffic/security cameras.
On April 6, someone shot a camera in the town of Upper Marlboro, and several weeks later a camera was found flipped over near Prince George Community College. Police say that was a "team" effort because the weight of the camera and support structure would have required several people to topple it.
Because the cameras cost (reportedly) several hundred thousand dollars, new security cameras have been installed to watch the -- wait for it -- security cameras. Police say they understand the frustration of motorists and it's not about Big Brother trying to get money from them for speeding, but providing public safety. The new cameras are an effort to try to catch the vandals.
