Not Strange in San Antonio

In fact, this seems like a pretty good idea for fighting the tagging.
Business owners like [Benny] Ward said they are fed up with having to clean up the mess because it's time consuming and costly.

"Especially when you have to keep painting your fence over and over and pressure wash it and staining it over and over," he said.

There's one way authorities say they can catch the taggers in the act.

"Cameras that you mount at street locations. They're portable and mobile," [Leon Valley Police Chief Randal] Wallace said.

Leon Valley is considering those video cameras that have been used in other places like California to get a clear picture of taggers which helps prosecute them.

"Locations where they had graffiti where they installed the systems ... they walk up and when the light flashes they run off," Wallace said. [ellipsis in original]

Can we program them to shoot paintballs at the twerps, too? That would be cool.

I'm a little nervous on this one. Leon Valley is a bit to anxious to throw cameras out as it is. Give 'em an inch, and it'll turn into Little Britain over there.
