Down Tennessee way

Police have lost red-light cameras to traffic accidents but never to gun play. “This is the first one that’s been shot,” Capt. Gordon Catlett said of the wounded camera at the intersection of Broadway Avenue and Interstate 640 ? one of 15 camera-equipped intersections in the city.

Clifford E. Clark, 47, was charged with felony vandalism and reckless endangerment for allegedly firing at least three rounds from a .30-06 hunting rifle at the camera, knocking it out of action.

Anger management issues, dude? At any rate, not the most appropriate use of a firearm. Red light cameras kinda suck, but I’m not sure this qualifies as something that rises to the level of requiring armed insurrection.
