Hopefully they dont vandalize placebo cop cars

Editor, Manteca Bulletin,
Regarding your story about placebo police cars in Manteca:

I remember reading that this was tried in New York years ago. The program was abandoned when they found that the unattended police cars often ended up vandalized and on blocks with the wheels stolen. Manteca is not New York, but I hope they considered this possibility.
