I understand but question your methodology

A guy in Knoxville had enough of the red light cameras and put a few rounds in one. You’re probably better off trying to vote the bums out.

    I question his methodology also. They’ve become experts at this sort of thing in Britain, where the preferred method is to pour some gasoline in the well of a tire, hook it over the camera, and set the whole thing on fire. Much quieter and works on pretty much all models.

    I say he’d be a lot better off at refining his tactics on the scene.

    Use a paintgun – just make sure to expend all your ammo before leaving the scene ūüôā

    I wonder how much a camera is worth, as well as how long it takes to replace one…

    I hate it when people do this. It is vandalism. It makes gun owners look bad. Just vote against them in the next election.

    Er, there’s a big difference between road signs, and cameras. I’ve never vandalized a road sign, but would love to remove the cameras. Since those who seek to monitor us are not easily dissuaded, guns are one option.

    Yes there is a difference between road signs and cameras but vandalism is vandalism no matter what’s being vandalized.

    Each of those GATSOs has a rather spendy Digital SLR camera in it.

    Think “ebay”.

    Back in 1971 or 1972 there was a stretch of highway in Texas called Spur 303 that had window-level pole-mounted speed cameras. These cameras would photograph your front license plate and stamp your measured speed on a picture for a citation and fine by mail.

    (These were not impervious to buckshot and replacement costs were high.)

    An acquaintance (allegedly) employed another, less destructive approach … since motorcycles had no front license plate, he would don a full-coverage, dark visored helmet and roar down the road at maybe twice the speed limit. Noting the ‘flashes of the cameras’ as he passed.

    Again, and again, and again … Until the flashes stopped, indicating that the film was expended.

    The cameras have been removed for more than thirty years since.

    There’s a reason most of those camera housings are bullet-proof. The fiery tire seems to have been pretty effective. I saw an entire website dedicated to GATSO fire photos.

    If I were this guy, I’d ask for a jury trial. I know if I sat on the jury I’d stand up and applaud the guy.

    I’m sorry to everyone here, but what he did was not vandalism. It was sabotage. There is a distinct and important difference.
