Alpha News reporter Liz Collin rode along with law enforcement — undercover officers from the Ramsey County Sheriff’s Office Carjacking Auto Theft Team — for a look at the hot rod burnouts that have become a deadly threat all over Minneapolis and St. Paul (video below). The name of the unit denotes the frequent use of stolen cars in the burnouts. As Liz reports, it has become a metro-wide problem. Summer’s here and the time is right for burning rubber in the street, or wherever blacktop can be found.

Liz captures the threat posed by the participants in the video below. Her accompanying story is posted here. Liz does not press her hosts on what they can do to put an end to the scene, but it represents a sick update to the broken windows phenomenon. We need broken windows policing to put an end to it.
