A Metairie man rigged a flashbang to deter people from breaking into his truck, and the incident was caught on video.
The man who rigged the flash bang said he understands this wasn’t the best way to go about deterring car burglaries, but was frustrated with how often his truck was broken into it.
He rigged a flash-bang inside his truck that would trigger if someone broke in.
Surveillance shows that the flashbang went off while someone broke into his truck in New Orleans.
The video shows a man breaking the glass of his truck and crawl inside. Shortly after the person entered the truck a flash can be seen.
The person who broke into the truck jumps out and runs away.
The man who rigged the flash-bang said he understands this wasn’t the best way to go about deterring car burglaries, but was frustrated with how often his truck was broken into it.
NOPD released the following statement about the incident:
“While we understand the frustrations our citizens have with crime, rigging an explosive device to detonate inside a vehicle is illegal and a bad idea.
“Not only is there a risk of injury to yourself and others, but there could also be serious legal ramifications for everyone involved.
“Please call your District station or Crimestoppers to report illegal activity.”
Basically, the NOPD is mad that this man is doing their job better than they ever could.
“Taking matters into your own hands” is code for “self-reliant”. The system hates self-reliant people more than the criminals themselves because they’re harder to manipulate through fear. At least the criminals serve a purpose for the system by spreading fear.
