We all knew this was going to happen.
The police stopped preventing crimes, but they will prevent you from protecting yourself from criminals.
Rashes of car break-ins in New Orleans has one man fed up and fighting back.
Although he still has to replace his window, he came up with a deterrent that chased away the would-be thief Friday night.
“To see him like gleefully walk up and just smash my eighth window in the past couple months and jump in and then you know to see the detonation go off and his reaction,” the man described.
His broken window stings a little less than the other six times this has happened over the last eight weeks.
“I don’t want this guy to die for what he did, but I don’t want him to just be able to smash and grab and run away,” he said.
Surveillance video shows that the window-smashing thief triggers his loud, non-lethal triggered deterrent set up in the center console of the truck.
“He probably didn’t get hurt that bad, but it wasn’t pleasant and it might deter him and his friends and tell other people not to do this too because, without something like this, there is no consequence because they’re not going to get arrested,” he said.
This satisfaction is not something many others can claim.
Churchgoers at Sixth Baptist Church in the Lower Garden District had their cars broken into Sunday morning. Several cars were also broken into at a school function in City Park Friday night.
City-wide, New Orleans police data shows vehicle burglaries are up 28% over the same time last year. In the Central Business District, where this man lives, they’re up 116%.
“My condo is for sale. I don’t want to live there anymore because I can’t keep paying for windows,” he said. “It’s almost like a culture now on a big night, whether it’s something like the Final Four or you know, a holiday weekend, something like that, you can almost expect it in my neighborhood.”
He says his truck almost always is targeted. He believes the thieves are going for guns they assume are in trucks because he has left valuables in the past that have gone untouched.
NOPD says something rigged up to detonate can be considered a bomb and could be illegal.
This is the model for the future state: the only purpose of the cops will be preventing you from protecting yourself from criminals. If the blacks break into your house and are killing your family and you shoot them, you will be charged for racist murder.
That is the trajectory here.
Oh – and the cops will be around to arrest you for not supporting the Ukraine hard enough or not taking enough vaccines.
Black people are right about the cops.
