Metal detecting finds abandoned property. It's the law, it's legal, it's abandoned.
How would you know that? What’s the difference between something shiny covered in dirt and something something else, dumpster diving is abandoned property

From a different angle think of it like rodents if you put a trap where the rodents have plenty of food your less likely to get one. Now put the same trap where the rodents have no food your guaranteed to get one every so often.

Because there are actual laws governing metal detecting. Maybe you should look into it.

Yeah.


City Finds Success With Bait Car Program
The Houston Police Department saw a 20 percent reduction in auto thefts in 2008. That translates into a savings of roughly $42.5 million for insurance companies in Houston alone.

"Seventy percent of the people that we arrested in 2008, for example, had criminal histories, prior arrests," Smith said. "They're not opportunistic thieves. They're genuine criminals who need to be taken off the street."

How do you conclude they are crackheads with no link provided, Auto thefts have nothing to do with what we’re talking about

If there aren't any rodents your trap won't catch any. It only works when they are in the area where the trap is laid.

This is a bait car. Rather than catching thieves stealing cars it catches thieves stealing from cars. I just posted evidence the tactic catches criminals. If you think otherwise please show me evidence all these are actually just good kids who would never steal anything otherwise.

My point being that they Target the poor communities because rich people are less likely to break the law and the use of resources couldn't account for 1 or 2 arrests when they can get 20-30. And buy law I mean steal stuff from other people's cars.

Yeah and I’m sure anyone who has ever broke one of those metal detector rules has no soul should be arrested and is also a crackhead?

Amazes me we have people here trying to make excuses for people jacking shoes. It doesn't matter what's stolen the point is the person is stealing. Going in to a car and taken stuff that doesn't belong to you is no diffrent then breaking in to someone's house and taking what doesn't belong to you.

Today we make far to many excuses for unacceptable behavior. I took a stick of gum when i was a kid my parents made me return it i was grounded for a month and i was forced to spend that summer mowing the store owners lawn weekly. I have never taken anything since why because i learned something.

Really how do you figure they could easily set up where they offer inside information on a trade or the opportunity to evade taxes and catch some of em

I’m also sure kids in those neighborhoods would probably steal concert tickets, Kylie Jenner lip gloss, or iPhones or something idk if they set up tents outside and wait days I’m sure they’ll grab one if they were left unattended in the streets

If they get caught using a metal detector to steal from someone they should be arrested, don't you agree?

How do they get the offer to evade taxes into a truck? Fortunately they aren't racist like you and DO go after inside traders with sting operations. They don't care about the things you care about, they go after all the criminals.

Again different culture and Parents which is plural, And I’m not saying what they’re doing isn’t wrong just saying police should at least do it in other communities not the poorest ones in the city, Where I grew up we didn’t get grounded, Actually we couldn’t come back in the house until a certain time lol

So everyone that has answered that they would never steal i wonder now if you are prepared to back up that claim if you were to go on skid row for a while?

After all we should be able to admit that necessity can play a huge role in decision making.

Some people even feel that garbage cans are private property.

What's illegal about picking up a $100 bill lying on the ground .. who does it belong to?
The poster earlier said they’d return it to the police station apparently they’re the most honest person of which I’ve ever had the privilege to converse


I did. The amount I picked up was perfect to have been someone's entire part-time pay cashed. Someone might have been relying on that. How can you just walk off with it?


Very honorable.

If a 17 year old Black kid in A large city found a few hundred bucks, what do you think his comfort level would be taking it down to the police station to turn it in?
I'm just speculating, but his decision making process might be different.

It's the difference between picking someone's pocket and finding some money on the ground. We aren't talking about a pair of Nike shoes on the ground, but in a truck.

If an officer walked around with his wallet half hanging out to make it easy for someone to steal his wallet in an undercover sting are you going to cry foul on that too?
