Cameras Installed to Watch Speed Cameras. What?

I know there are a lot of people out there who hate red light and speed cameras, but this is taking it to the extreme. Police in Palmer Park, MD are installing cameras to watch other cameras. Yes, you read that right. After several speed monitoring cameras were either destroyed or vandalized in the area, cameras are now being installed to try to catch the culprits, by training them on the speed cameras. Yikes, where will it end?
Here's the story from WTOP Radio.
