While Rome burns
Like most cities, Cincinnati has a chubby for building a street car system in the city.
But if you look at photos and videos of streetcars in other cities you'll notice two distinct characteristics of those cars.
1) They look kind of cool
2) They're almost always empty
Case in point, this photo of the Tampa cars. Notice the one person on this car the photo is taken in and notice the whopping two passengers in the car across the way.
So while the city is spending valuable resources trying to get these crime magnets into the budget, they might actually consider using those funds for cops.
