Read Part 1 for Images and a description of the Skybridge vandalism
Whatever you say about Alderwoman Howard, I believe she sometimes has some very good ideas. She was quoted in a QCTimes article about the Skybridge vandalism as saying " After the last vandalism, it was my understanding that the casino was suppose to use its security personnel to patrol the skybridge. We need to have another conversation to see how they are addressing that. "
IOC basically replied: Who, us? We don't have nothin to do with that thing. (Paraphrased... heavily)
All Systems Normal indeed... daily vandalism.
IOC might say that they have no reason to send their security folks across the skybridge into the north tower, after all, there's no IOC offices over there....
Rhythm City offices directly to the north of the Skybridge, nearly within sight of the vandalism.
Despite yesterday's daylight vandalism, I would suggest that the lion's share of Skybridge security is needed for night time. Even detailing one of their security guards to spend half his time from 9pm-5am patrolling the skybridge would only cost about $30 a day. Ten or twelve grand a year to prevent more $3000 window breakings, graffiti, nudity or bizarre middle age propositioners seems like a bargain to me. Or the city could hire someone full time to patrol the Skybridge, and the areas around the Figge, RME, River Center, etc. Or someone could cough up money for some decent cameras to keep an eye on the bridge.
There are plenty of solutions, but Rhythm City should be a part of it.
After all, its got their name on it.
