Hmmm

Funny place to put a red light camera. In the first direction you see, no light at all, in the other direction (away from the camera) just the on ramp for the highway. But still no red light. Also there are 3 different cameras. The first is silver, the second gold, and the third has a different base. And not one looks like it was near any intersections. So if they wasn't red light cameras what were they? BTW they don't look like any I have seen around here. But that doesn't say a lot. Stupid flash puts a spot in your eyes when it goes off at night. shock

I can only Hope, you don't think Bombing is funny

catch this moron and prosecute Her or Him to the fullest extent of the law. Vandalism isn't funny or the explosion isn't even beautiful.

If you break the law you deserve what you get. What most people don't know or have even considered is the cameras don't just do a single snap, it not a film camera it's a HD Video camera that is always running and the snap is just a frame capture.
Now if you talk to someone from Homeland Security, they will tell you they can look at the view of any one of the cameras at any time for obvious reasons.

Si if your thinking about taking your frustration out on a camera, I would highly recommend vandalism not be your approach, just because the video you watched was posted doesn't mean the poster now isn't in Jail.

Be a intelligent voter, put the proper people in office that share your ideals, and campaign aganst the officials that don't.

Don't become a statistic and become an inmate, what you viewed was juvenile and needs to be dealt with harshly.

looks like you are in the minority amongst the posters on this thread.. most of them enjoyed the video. so in your democratic world. you would be out voted. hows that for irony

P.S. i think its a speed camera .. not a red light camera.

This happened in Finland.

This happened in Finland. That might be why it looks differently.

To the people that don't think it's funny, there's nothing you can do. The camera got blown up, and some will think it's funny. There's no point in getting mad, and saying that the person deserves to be prosecuted. Of course the authorities are looking for the person. Of course they'll be in big trouble. So if some people want to laugh at something that they'd love to do, but never would, where's the harm?

Camera

Very funny!

Why destory property

I agree with BobDee. Why destory property. Nothing is gained.

This reminds me of the news report last night, where a man drove his vehicle into the front of a store. He got mad at the clerk because they didn't turn the gas pump on fast enought. what is the sense of that. sad

I say it's funny if

If the speed Camera is in a high accident area and it's there to save lives, it's not funny. If it's there for a money grab It's funny. Looks like its in a rural area. In that case I say it's funny. It's my story am I'm sticking with it. grin

I like explosions myself

When they are done in a safe manner. I do not condone the destruction of property that does not belong to you either.

AS far as the video I like the idea behind this in that they are upset at the government and are striking back. The problem is now taxes, fines and anything else they can think of will go up to replace the cost of the camera. This is the wrong way of doing this.

Still kinda of like the video even though it is wrong.

Never seen them go down

And those taxes you are speaking of, won't go up anyways?

Nicely done.

Wonder how the guy got it on YouTube without giving himself away...

It looks faked to me.

Too bad that this individual decided to focus his energy on pointless destruction. I hope he gets caught and forced to pay for three new red light cameras in his own neighborhood for punishment.

It looks hilarious, but the sad thing is the tax payers are the ones getting the shaft.

It's hard to tell where this happened at, but if the close-up of the camera with the explosive charge taped to it is the same as the explosion footage, then I would say that it is in Europe somewhere. The direction sign in the background has a Blue background and in the U.S. all I've ever seen is a Green background. Plus, the route numbers are in colored rectangles, which is how they do it in Europe. The original footage is on StupidVideos.com.
http://www.stupidvideos.com/video/stunts/Traffic_Camera_Expl... with a date of 07.10.2009. Since it's probably european, the date is probably Oct. 10, 2009.

The sad part about this is that if the person responsible continues to get away with it, then what will they escalate to. Maybe they don't like school buses going so slow, since they obviously like to speed - Hmmmm.

Weighing in . . .

While I like seeing things blow up just as much as the next guy, I think I'll leave that to the Mythbusters, Smash Lab, etc.

It's kind of disturbing to know that there are people out there that think it's OK to destroy public (or private) property and have the explosives to do it.

There are proper ways to make your voice known and get laws changed, etc. this is not one of them.

Just shows what can happen

This just shows what can happen when governments behave like thieves. Clearly someone is frustrated with all of these cameras being set up to rob motorists of their money. The better approach would be to ban the cameras legally, but if people feel they have no other recourse, they will take things into their own hands. By the way, this is not an isolated incident. It is fairly common in places where these awful devices are widespread. Hopefully, we can ban them in the U.S. and we won't end up with people feeling like this is their only recourse.

As for this video, at least they did it when no one was around to be hurt or injured by it.

I tip my hat to you good sir....

I guess pretty soon we can anticipate suicide bombers blowing up Red Light and Speed cameras. That would stop them from getting a ticket and teaching the government a lesson......

Some deep pathology has been unleashed in our country. Too bad.

When you plug "Anarchy" into your GPS it takes you to Iraq, Afghanistan, and Somalia.

That’s quite a leap to go from an act of disobedience to the actions alluded to in Jefferson’s quote. I’m more impressed by his writings concerning Virtue than I am of any of this radical libertarian’s writings about a sacrificial tree.

Why is it that people seem to have a naive tendency to overly objectify the ideas expressed in writings such as the Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence? Without question, these documents then become authoritative in themselves almost as the Word of God when people do not wrestle with the meaning of the things expressed within them.

I’d rather think that such things as Reason reside within the human mind something that is sometimes expressed as the spirit of the law, thus accounting for the correction of the original disconnect enshrined in the Declaration of Independence with the statement: “all men are created equal” while at the same time the reality of our situation then allowed slavery.

Of course, as I mentioned there’s the idea of fetishism of the law where (if I understand correctly) the law is elevated to a presumed state of near godlike infallibility and where obedience to the law is held above all other values. But here, the human conscience stands in opposition to this error so that if a particular law is perceived to be unjust, it (the law) can be disobeyed in order to follow a higher law.

I dislike being under the cold eye of the camera. It doesn’t set right with me but on the other hand I would not advocate “adolescent” violence against public property. This type of action might serve to produce the exact opposite of what was intended, i.e., increased surveillance. It doesn’t seem wise to me.

Bad--But Funny

I watch Mythbusters, so enjoy a good explosion now and then. The video is funny. But destruction of property is not so funny. Anarchy isn't funny either...

You're kidding right?

Do you personally believe that statement...or do you just want everyone else to believe it?

Hey, aren't you the same guy who had a "hard time coping with bicycles on the road" in a previous post?

And didn't you tell me to... "Go cut the lawn, take the spouse out to dinner, play with the kids, etc. etc. and quit being a worrywart about such idiotic things."... when I pointed out in a previous post that redlight enforcement cameras discriminated and gave a free-pass to motorcycles, mopeds, motorscooters, and bicycles that ran red-lights?

Now you think that youtube video from Finland is going to lead to suicide bombers? Huh?

Again, tell me you're kidding. If not let me try to put your fears to rest:

Bicycles are not out to hurt you.

Yes, red-light camaras discriminate.

And no, Finland is NOT a breeding ground for terrorist out to get you.

Now, say goodnight Gracie...

Not real

My first thought is that it's a hoax. The camera police would track down the YouTube poster real quick.

I can only hope a person like yourself will spend a lot of time in the penitentiary with your vigilantism,anachronism and terrorism thoughts,when you bring your dangerous thoughts to life.

There is a huge difference in thinking and wishing the destruction of the property of others. Then there is actually doing it. The first is healthy the second is deviate behavior. And since you condone violence I know your mind set.
Hey I want to thank you for the history lesson from 200 years ago... Like I didn't already know that....If I were you I would be more concerned about the silly laws you live under in S. CA. Go break Arnold's windshield since he won't let you use a windshield mount. You know that Sacramento has a zero tolerance policy for common sense, that's where you should focus your attention.

No, I would not consider myself "extremely gullible". And, I don't know why you would write something like that.

Your post says your guess is... "we can anticipate suicide bombers blowing-up Red Light and Speed camaras". Did I miss something?

Did you mean something other than what you wrote? If so, I am not sure how your omissions makes me "gullible".

The discussion on red light

The discussion on red light cameras discriminating, ran its course. Most likely through a red light on a bicycle.

That IS

funny. Almost spread the LCD. smile

If you don't agree

If you don't agree with something, change the subject and make personal attacks.
