Tired of that CCTV camera? No worries, these two gentlemen can take it down in no time.





It happened on Dorning Road, Swinton, at about 1.30pm on 7 May 2011.

The vandals used a portable saw to cut through the CCTV camera pole, causing it to collapse and transmission was lost.

Police
have now released CCTV footage taken from the camera seconds before it
was cut down and are appealing to anyone who either recognises the
offender or who has information about what happened to come forward.

Chief
Inspector Vinny Greener from the Salford Division of Greater Manchester
Police said: "The CCTV was put up after residents complained about
antisocial behaviour on their estate. Within days of it being in place
it led to the arrest of a wanted man and has already provided evidence
regarding antisocial behaviour.

"Clearly its presence is
upsetting the criminal fraternity and it has been deliberately attacked
in broad daylight for all to see. I want to reassure people that the
police, Salford City Council and City West are working together to
identify those responsible. Anybody who has any information regarding
this please let us know on 0161 872 50 50 or contact Crimestoppers
anonymously on 0800 555 111."

  • Good for them. If there is supposed to be a large anti-social problem in the area, the police should have patrols in the area to catch them.
    Instead, all over the UK there are thousands of cameras that film crime happening, but does nothing to prevent it. Then the public is expected to look at any footage the police release and identify the criminals. Id rather have the police on the street preventing the crime from happening in the first place

    Anyone in their right mind won't say anything. Who wants that camera aimed in their yard and private property?

    • @quasimodo Shouldn't be romanticising the activities of scum. Chances are these guys terrorise the neighbourhood and make life impossible for what decent residents there still are there. Their actions are NOT to be applauded.

    • @wattage2000 Totally agree. If the estate wasn't such a high crime rate shit hole, there wouldn't be any need to fit cameras.

  • I don`t understand why or how the English let the state go this far in infringing their right to privacy. England was once a very proud nation, a world superpower which stood firm when virtually the rest of Europe was under the boots of Hitler`s dogs.

    You guys let the nanny state get the best of you, and look how much worse off your country is for it. In many English cities, one cannot leave ones home without cameras tracking their every movement.

    The sad part is, most people are too apathet More..

    • @dogpiss You make a lot of assumptions about me, pal. I don`t live in Suburbia. I`ve lived my entire life in rough areas. Been robbed, been in scraps. Seen it all.

      That said, I`ll never understand the English mentality where so many people are so happy to be monitored 24 7.

      See my post above about those giving up liberties for security deserve neither and will lose both.

      If you`re happy to have the state watch your every move then you`re wrong in the head.

    • @dogpiss Gangs aren`t purely a UK phenomenon, chap. Believe it or not, organized crime isn`t strictly confined to your little island. People are shot, stabbed, robbed, raped you name it everywhere. You seem to be under the impression that it only happens where you live, and the only way to stop it is to treat everybody like a criminal.

  • What's crazy is that in the UK someone actually monitors all these cameras in real time, as shown in this clip. Couldn't these thousands of people be doing something useful?

  • England is the most "big brothered" country on the planet. CCTV's are not to be placed around residences, and citizens are VERY vigilant - and rightly so - to their right to privacy.

    Put CCTV cameras up in residential areas to watch for "antisocial behavior," expect them to be taken out like this, again and again.

    Hats off the the residents protecting their privacy.
