aint those cars remote stoppable and pretty much everythings under police control so they cant even open the windows etc
but even if i saw a car with gold bricks on the backseat with the engine running/keys in the ignition i'd smell a rat and perhaps use the wing mirror to check my hair while spotting the cameras and then walk away towards the nearest large van making piggy noises

I wasn't trying to get people to believe car theft wasn't a problem....herr derr yourself.
What I and many like me are trying to tell you stupid people is that this type of police work is entrapment. No matter what the outcome is.
The police spend money on a vehicle to "bait". They spend man hours to "watch" said vehicle. They spend lots of money to catch a "criminal" to be placed in the judiciary system.......I.E. more money for THEMSELVES.
What everyone is saying about the reason being to stop car thiefs is utter BS IMO. If they wanted to stop car thiefs in an area, they could spend a HELL of a lot less time and money just patrolling the area. But that doesn't bring in revenue for either the police department nor the judicial department, the private prison complex, etc.
My argument is not to coddle to these car thiefs (I myself think they are despicable).
But, I WILL NOT condone the police becoming criminals themselves to catch a criminal.
Get it yet harr dee harr harr.......?
