call me crazy, but...
- Most of the messages involving shootings in the 1st street area
mention cars speeding away immediately afterward. If MPD can't put
police there all the time, what about a speed camera? There shouldn't
be too many cars clocked overnight, & when matched up to reports of
shootings, it should be fairly easy to narrow it down to a few cars to
follow up on. Aren't there mobile ones that are hidden in unmarked
cars? I seem to remember reading that before a fixed camera is put
somewhere, there is testing done with a hidden mobile unit. These
should be deployed for situations like this.
