US – About 20% of the surveillance cameras in the city of Pittsburgh, US either don’t work or are pointed in the wrong direction.
That’s according to US media outlet Target 11, who reported that there are at least three incidents in which the cameras could’ve helped solve crimes, had they been functioning properly.
For one, the murder of 14-year-old Kelvin Lovelace remains unsolved. Nearly two years ago, someone shot the teen at a graduation party in the East Hills. The surveillance camera in the area was facing the trees at the time.
Lovelace’s mother, LaShaun King, said that news is devastating and upsetting to her and her family. “I don’t understand the use for them if they are not working,” King added. “All I want is an arrest made.”
