poetic justice really...for years those bastards have been stealing from us

and the best part is that he still has most of the camera and the cops dont know where it is. mind you, he was kind enough to give back the flash part...from the window of a moving car.

this man is a legend.

Gotta love it. There was a newspiece in the Daily Telegraph (Sydney) the other day about a speed camera catching fire and destroying a days worth of happy snaps. I think it was on Cowpasture Rd. Article said unsure if the fire was deliberately lit.
Viva la revolution!!!
