Listening to your story about the man killed on Lousiana Ave. and how a resident was used to such sights as seeing blood on the streets, rubber gloves left behind by the police and the police tape. My question is: Why can't the police pick up their own debris and dispose of it properly? Leaving gloves behind is a danger, they are contaminated and could pose a danger to whoever picks them up. The police should carry a garbage bag in their cars for such use. I would think that would be considered as littering. Maybe we should charge them as they would fine us for littering.
