Where are the comments from City staff? Why are they yet again refusing to answer questions about whether the cameras are even working? This is the second death that's happened recently for which the city's refused to answer any questions!

Who do they think is paying for the cameras -- and paying their salaries??

RIP to mister Lee. His life was taken too soon. This is not a time to bring up comments about cameras etc. Save that for another thread. I hope his family can find peace during this difficult time.
