ABC15 is reporting that a local man has been arrested for an attack on a photo enforcement camera:
A Glendale man was arrested after allegedly attacking a freeway speed camera with a pickaxe, according to the Department of Public Safety. Travis Munroe Townsend, 26, was taken into custody after he was caught in the act by a DPS officer, according to a spokesman.
CameraFRAUD.com issued the following statement:
There is a significant difference between civil disobedience and mindless damage. It’s unfortunate that the person chose not to follow the example of Rosa Parks or Gandhi, both of whom protested against oppressive government by thoughtfully and peacefully breaking the laws they felt to be unjust. In addition, the person arrested was not member of CameraFRAUD.com’s public Meetup group.
