Reducing crime by removing pay phones

Just one question: If public pay phones attract criminals like moths to flame, shouldn't that make it easier to catch them?

The claim that they use it for "anonymity" is horse-hockey. The same anonymity is available to pay-as-you-go cellphones. Ask Sasktel how many paygo phones "Mickey Mouse" owns. If this is the brightest idea they have...

What's really funny about this is that someone can buy a pre-paid cell phone from the 7-11 at the very same intersection.

I'm concerned that removing these payphones may actually increase crime in the area. If there are no phone booths, how's Clark Kent going to change into Superman?
