Video: Car Owner Booby-Traps His Truck So When These Thieves Show Up, They Got A Big Surprise – The Police Urges Residents Not To Take Matters Into Their Own Hands After This Video

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.

Video below:

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.

You can always count on the cops to take the wrong position.

Yes, call the police. They will show up eventually to fill out a report.

It would be terrible if somebody did that with a grenade. Imagine if someone did that with a grenade and it went viral and it started to become a thing. Car thieves would start blowing up all over the place, then the survivors would start thinking twice about doing that. That would be terrible. Nobody would want to see that.

Police opinion to the contrary, I think this is a GREAT idea. If I knew how to rig such a thing, I’d do it.

I think it’s a great idea! If more did this it would definitely have an hope others try it and it has some affect at putting a dent in the massive numbers of car thefts and car break-ins occurring around the country.

When governments were formed, WE, THE CITIZENS ceded a LIMITED AMOUNT of authority to form law enforcement agencies to KEEP THE STREETS SAFE.

AT NO TIME DID WE SURRENDERS ALL OUR RIGHTS to a bunch of fumbling morons.

Since our law enforcement system is broken and crime is soaring in every State what are the alternatives to keeping scum away and protecting our property and family. Many of us cannot hire private security like the Politicians who caused the problem by DEFUNDING the police which they deny they did. Fortunately videos of them doing so do not go away.

When the police won’t or can’t do their job, we have to take care of ourselves!

Start rigging explosive packages so they can steal them. Fuck the law! They’re more interested in the criminals than hard working, honest tax payers!

The law has been turned against us and is NOT on our side.

What’s wrong with deterrence? The guy didn’t get hurt and the owner still has to deal with getting a broken window fixed. And the cops are discouraging this?

I think that it is a very appropriate method of theft deterrence, but doesn’t help much with the vehicle damage. Too bad that it didn’t blind the thug.

We need laws that one’s vehicle is an extension of one’s house and castle wherever it is.
