The cost of good quality surveillance cameras is justified by such incidents.

Really, so now it's justified. Would you take that attitude when they vandalize your property, not just others, highly doubtful.

It's easy to come up with a so called intellectual type of moronic response, yet quite un-necessary!

Where is the outrage from the liberal media? Imagine for a moment if this was an attack on an African American school bus or a Muslim van, it would be plastered all over the local tabloids.

I think that the millions we spend just on public housing for them negates your "lack of investment" theory.
