    I get better pictures on my game camera. The picture does eliminate any children or people in wheelchairs.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again. You can buy an iPhone, which you can carry in your pocket, that has an 8 MP HD-quality camera. Why can't these banks and convenience stores spend a little extra money on higher quality security cameras?

    Does it cut into their bottom lines THAT much?

    Nice, now we get a grainy black and white photo that could be anyone. Why is it, when we have the technology to read license plates from space, that a bank can't get a recognizable picture of someone when they're robbed?

    yea...it's tough to spot a criminal on the streets when there's NO DESCRIPTION! I probably saw him walking around down here, but would never know it.

    Maybe if the police in Fayetteville would release a little more information about the suspects in crimes occasionally... Photos, descriptions, etc., might be helpful in finding or identifying people from time to time.

    This happened downtown, right down the road from the courthouse, Sheriff's office and the jail. Those were some bold bank robbers.
