Business Owner Wants More Cameras Downtown
When it came to catching an accused killer, Mike Keil helped. At least, the surveillance cameras on his Doerflinger building in downtown La Crosse helped. Police utilized those cameras and many others to help track down Jeffrey Lepsch, accused of killing Paul and A.J. Petras in their photo shop. Now Keil's leading a drive to put up more cameras downtown. Surveillance that would be paid for by private business but controlled by police. He's thinking lots of cameras. We asked Keil about privacy issues
But Keil says his effort isn't meant to give police tools to spy on the people in La Crosse. Only to solve--or maybe, deter--crimes in La Crosse.
