If you want to stop people like this from doing things like this when you catch them punish them in public. Peirce field is big enough to hold such events. You could sell tickets for 10 bucks. Line up a slew of criminals that were caught this week... And Flog them with a bamboo cane.... That would be worth 10 bucks of anyones money and the money could be filtered back into the City.... What.... Thats better than selling advertising on Busses isn't it?
