We're pretty sure this is what you'd call "irony."
You may remember an item in Hariballs about a surveillance system that supposedly catches taggers in the act. Basically, your Houston Police Department has set up a slew of real and fake cameras that are meant to "serve as a deterrent," sez an HPD spokesperson.
So you gotta love that sometime before 2 a.m. this morning, HPD's Neartown substation got hit by taggers. Our pals at KHOU report that "... expletives were written on the walls, and at least one squad car's hood was tagged."
This begs the question: Why no cameras at the substation?
