Sen. Bob Casey Jr. Changes Gun Views; Cherry Hill PD Uses License Scan; Delco Bank Robbery and Chase

Pennsylvania Senator Bob Casey Jr. (D) has long been opposed to new gun control laws, however, in light of the recent event in Newtown, CT he has reassessed his views and changed his mind. He told the Inquirer he was”haunted” by what occurred and how the weapons were used. He would support any bill that bans military-style assault rifles and restricts high-capacity ammunition clips. Casey still supports the Second Amendment but believes these are changes that need to be made to prevent tragedies like this from happening again. Casey won his second term to the Senate in November running on a Pro-Gun platform. He could expect some criticism and fall back from this decision, but he is now more inline with the rest of his Democratic colleagues.

Cherry Hill Police are using new technology to track down suspects, wanted criminals, stolen vehicles, or unregistered cars. This is all thanks to automatic license plate readers mounted on police cars. The readers constantly scan license plates as cars pass by the cruiser. The plate numbers are run through criminal databases and an offending plate will pop up on the officer's screen with the offense tied to it. It doesn't matter if the cop or civilian is stopped or driving, the scanner reads any plate that it can see. Cherry Hill PD's policy is to immediately forget any plate that isn't tied to a crime, so innocent citizens' activities aren't being tracked. Criminals driving through Cherry Hill will have a hard time hiding. Right now two cruisers are equipped with scanners with plans for more.

Three suspects are in custody after a bank robbery in Folsom, Delaware County, turned into a high-speed chase that went through Chester and down I-95, crossing state lines and ending in Wilmington, DE. Barry Griffith from Bear, Delaware, held up the bank inside the Acme on Morton Avenue in Folsom at 1:30 pm on Wednesday. He fled with two other men in a silver Hyundai. They were met by police at the entrance to I-95. The chase reached speeds of 100 mph weaving in and out of traffic. Cam Herring of New Castle, Delaware bailed at one point and was apprehended. When the car eventually stopped at the Park and Ride near Wilmington, Delaware State Police caught the driver, Joseph Campbell from Bear, DE. Griffith eluded them initially but was caught later Wednesday in Wilmington. Investigators believe he is responsible for several other bank robberies over the past few weeks. The other two are cooperating with authorities.
