The police are asking for the public's help in catching a man who keeps destroying speed-cameras, but many call the man an unsung hero.The man who began his crusade against the dreaded speed-cameras in February is back! A couple months ago, Washington, D.C., police reported that a man struck down almost a dozen cameras in Northeast and Southeast Washington, D.C., including on the 800 block of Eastern Avenue NE and around Kenilworth Avenue and Benning Road. The man was caught on camera pulling over and running out of the vehicle to knock a camera over. The man then kicks it repeatedly before jumping into the vehicle and leaving the scene.

The man appears to be driving a similar dark SUV and has the same level of hatred for the cameras. Not everyone wants the offender brought to justice. Someone said in response to a post by Fox5 DC on Twitter "Not all heroes wear capes." Another person asks, "What's the issue here?" A person even offers to start a Go Fund Me if the offender is arrested.
Nevertheless, the police are asking for the public's help in finding the offender. They believe the man drives a dark-colored Hyundai Santa Fe. The latest incident happened just before 4 a.m. on the 3700 block of Southern Avenue. The police have said they do not yet have a motive, but the motive is probably very clear to many District residents. According to the Metropolitan Police Department, speeding tickets can range from $50-$300 depending on the speed you are going. You can be given a $50 fine for going just one mile over the speed limit. The Metropolitan Police Department also explains their criteria for deciding where the cameras go. "Locations throughout the District of Columbia are selected by the MPDC based on recent incidents of speeding-related crashes and fatalities, their proximity to school zones and other places where children or other vulnerable populations are present, and known sites of chronic speeding." What do you think? Is he a hero? Should he be held accountable for destroying government property? Let us know in the comments!
