Transit cameras have been reported as playing a major part in catching Ferrari’s alleged murderer. Seattle Times:

Although Seattle has no stationary public crime cameras and police aren’t allowed by law to to use red light cameras to help solve crimes, there are a large number of cameras on King County buses.
Ferrari was shot while driving in the Central District on May 24. He is said to have been active on this blog.
I’ve since learned that Justin was a frequent reader, and commented under the user name justinf. Here are search results of all of his comments at STB. From what I’ve read he was intelligent, interesting, and knew his buses well.
