When I'm shopping, I always look for the store with the "Thieves will be shot" sign.
I know the chances of being mistaken for a thief are pretty low, but I do like just a little bit of danger.

Gunslinger013: I'm glad someone mentioned the family. Maybe if the family would teach their children it is wrong (and dangerous) to steal the property of others we wouldn't have this problem.


FARK YOU AND YOUR PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY!!!!

Endive Wombat: hillbillypharmacist: Death is totes the right punishment for stealing a car.

So, devils advocate time...

Who says that the theft of my car is any less important than the theft of anything else or anyone else's possessions?  I've worked honestly and hard to be able to buy my car, I need my car to get to and from work, run errands, and to experience life.  The very act of stealing my car is prohibiting me from doing what I need to do in my life, and prohibiting me from enjoying my life the way I want to...you are negatively affecting my livelihood and my ability to get around in a meaningful way.

What is valuable to me, may not be as valuable to you and vice versa, that being said,who are you to tell me that my possessions are not worth defending if someone is trying to take them from me?
If you are willing to steal a car, you have to accept the possibility that the car you are stealing means a lot to the person it is getting stolen from.


If I adopt your valuation that a radiator is worth a life, can I shoot you and just give a radiator as compensation?

Do people who shoot thieves get time in South Carolina?

The other half of his "securtiy plan" is to have gunshots pre-recorded and play them randomly throughout the night. Thieves will hear the gunshots and figure someone else just got shot and get moving in reverse quick-like.

Only if they stupidly report the murder to the police. Just dig the bullets out and dump the body on a disused road. If anyone knows what he was doing when he went missing, they won't talk to the police.


He was just getting his life turned around, and was about to sign a record deal...

Dancin_In_Anson: henryhill: Please come steal my stuff, I have no fence or security system

And we're back full circle to where it's the fault of the business owner. Maybe he should stand trial.


Well, if he didn't want his stuff stolen, he shouldn't have dressed it like that.

/am i doing this right?

I can't get TFA to reload, but did I read that the sign had been there for three months, but the last robbery was two weeks ago?

You're gonna need a bigger sign...

Katolu: Insurance will compensate you for your loss. Will you compensate the family of the person you kill?


But my car/stolen item holds sentimental value to me that cannot be equated in monetary terms.  Why should I have to?  It is not my problem that their family member chose to do something illegal and got killed in the process...

Why should I have to compensate a thief's family?  What, the family relied on stolen goods as a from of income, and now that I've taken out the main breadwinner, the family is now at a loss and has to find real jobs?

How the fark do you get these stolen from you?

It's fairly easy to steal these things with a truck and a trailer.  I would recommend getting a substantial locking gate instead of shooting people.  Also I would imagine that they're stealing these things at night when there's no one around with a gun anyway.  The cheapest option would be to get a large ill-tempered dog.


Hmmm... automated turret?
