get good descriptions of the perps as opposed to just their ride....... :cheers2:

block them in, and tell them that you're a BLM blockade (just until the cops show) :evil2:

but seriously, you did what you could with your available resources. And yes, it's VERY frustrating......



He did. Didn’t you see they were “dark white skinned” :rolll

Sniper team is not a bad idea except just use a laser, seeing a laser pointer would scare me to death thinking someone had a rifle aimed at me just a thought

I was watching some hilarious videos of package thieves a.k.a "porch bandits." And how people were booby trapping them, non-lethal of course. Nobody's died from dog feces that I'm aware of..lol.
Around Christmas time, it's a real problem in some areas. Anyhow, one guy had his wife's iPhone stolen. Which was easy to trace with the "Find your phone" option on iCloud.

It seems to me that thieves are getting away with far too much! One way to curve this behavior is make it more of a gamble for them.
I'm picturing a non-functioning boom box or some other bait. With a cheap phone that has some sort of movement triggering/alert type app. The moment the phone is moved, it notifies church security. Tracking it would be easy! At least for the short term.

Terrible times that we live in, when the best that can be said is that the bad guys got away with someone's property, and at least no one died. Who cares about the hours of the person's life spent working to acquire that property, right? That is when you know the system is biased toward the criminal and against the average citizen. :banghead:

And no, I don't want to be a "test case", but I can still be angry about the whole thing. :mad5
