Losing the battle against car theft.

I knew we had truly lost the battle against car theives the day I arrived at the shopping mall and was greeted by a huge banner plastered across the front of the mall crying out “Bait Cars are Everywhere!”. Implying that one of the cars might be a plant designed to trap car theives.

I have also noticed how the slogan for the program has changed from “steal a car, go to jail” to “steal a car, get busted”. Clearly they are not going to jail every time.

Technical solutions don’t fix moral problems. Time to drop the technical triumphalism and address the root issue. CAR THEIVES’ HEARTS.
