Puddle Jumping

There are plenty of things to write about today, including Mayor Foxx's contentious dealing with Charlotte's City Council as he keeps trying to raise our taxes for expensive projects even most in his own party voted down several times already.  Some on City Council who are opposed to Mayor Foxx's plans have said they feel Foxx has threatened them politically for not backing him his nearly $1 Billion plan.

Police Chief Rodney Monroe presented to Council how he wanted to keep not only the millions of dollars in surveillance equipment added for the DNC Convention (shock, surprise) but also wants to access private and university cameras so police can collect additional information through those cameras as well.  Monroe wants to expand the Shotspotter program (technology that purports to zero in on gunshots and report them to police real time) to private property in more areas.  

Instead of that, watch this video.  Feel good.
