Coral Gables is Watching You!

Natalia Zea with CBS 4 News reported yesterday that the Coral Gables Police Department has a new weapon in the fight against graffiti in Coral Gables.  They have acquired, by means of $7000 from a federal grant, a portable security camera that they can position wherever they want in order to get a good look at any would-be Picasso’s trying to paint the town.

I for one have rarely seen graffiti in Coral Gables, one of the reasons I love it so much, but that isn’t to say there will not always be some hoodlums (that’s right I said hoodlums) that are looking to make a mark.  Boy it’s basically impossible to avoid really bad puns while writing this article.  These scofflaws and ne’er-do-wells are obviously trying to earn their stripes by causing problems for the City of Coral Gables.

But will the camera work?

Well I was kind of hoping $7,000 would buy at least 2 cameras.  I don’t think it will take long for those scallywags to catch wind of the video camera’s location and then, oh I don’t know, go spray their evil ink in another part of the city?  Well hopefully they do not read The Coral Gables Blog, or watch CBS 4, because if they do they are now aware of the camera’s existence.  In any case hopefully the one camera will catch some mini-Michelangelo in the act and then they can make him or her pay for the camera and for the cost to clean up the mess they left.

I went looking for grafitti in Coral Gables, I didn’t think I was going to find any and then I found this!!!
