    Trigger-happy neighbors?

    . Interesting observation. Take away their guns before a trigger-happy neighbor shoots a kid with spray paint.

    Given our relatively small footprint, it seems we are lagging behind with the aggressive installation of video surveillance cameras around Rec Centers, parks, etc. How many residents have now had to resort to their own video surveillance systems to track porch package thieves, vehicle burglaries, hit and runs, etc.?

    Would like to see this issue addressed by our Police Chief, Mayor and Council.

    There was also a grafitti incident within the past couple months on City property along Community. Seems likely that the perpetrator lives in the City, perhaps on the West side.

    Knowing how trigger-happy my neighbors are, it really seems like a stupid idea to do stuff like this around here. Then again kids (assuming this was done by a kid) don’t always understand the potential consequences of what they do.

    I would think there would be cameras around the Rec. Center.
