    Perhaps it needs to be repositioned.

    Really the only good a camera might do is give a clue to the vandal's schedule so that an officer could spend an hour waiting to catch them, at a time and place they had appeared before, on camera. If they don't keep a regular schedule, it's pretty much useless, and isn't going to identify anybody in the dark.

    I suspect there are enough 'real' cameras around the airport and Crystal City that they'd be able to figure out who is coming and going to the path in the wee hours pretty fast if there were free donuts involved.

    Has anyone talked with the folks running those cameras? I would not assume that people looking for video of wild fauna would want to get involved in police work.

    My assumption is those cameras were emplaced by the park police. However, they need to be hidden better if they want to catch Miller lowlife

    You'd be surprised

    There were 2 cyclists today around 7:20 AM surrounded by about 3 police cars by the airport exit ramp to GW Parkway (south of the 2 overpasses). They were both standing and neither looked seriously injured or like they were about to get arrested, but I wonder if the large quantity of glass that appeared overnight on the trail just south of there led to an accident or something...

    I would have thought maybe it was a bike-on-car accident on the crosswalk, but I didn't see any cars stopped, and as I said, no one looked hurt...I spoke to another cyclist who was biking by at the same time as me, and neither of us could figure out what had happened.

    Maybe they were having a discussion regarding right of way at the crosswalk/stop sign, and the resulting cognitive dissonance required extra backup.

    Sorry, forgot to post this sooner, but there was High Life Low Life glass on the MVT bridge going over Four Mile Run on Saturday, Nov. 4, approx. 8am. Anyone else see it or glass in other locations that morning?
