Police searched for a boy with special needs who was reported to have been inside the Mustang.

Not just a kid, a special needs kid. I guess if you're going to go big, you might as well go really big.

Mustangs.

Serious business.

Hmm. I could put a tracker on my car so that I can locate it with my iPhone.

It would be nice if there was a better response besides: Too bad, so sad, go fark yourself, bus stop's that-a-way, here's your premium increase for being a victim.

Really big is "Locked in the trunk along with an unconscious cop, driving toward the river or a volcano."

I need to buy one of these.  I have reoccurring nightmares of walking out to the parking lot somewhere and my car is stolen.

Rent a Camaro to run down the Mustang?
Then shoot the special needs kid?

Odd.  I had that exact dream (nightmare) two nights ago.  My son was very sick and I needed to get him to emergency.  Interest level of the other participants in my dream: zero.  Possibly irrelevant detail: it was parked in a hotel parking garage.

My 2017 Pacifica minivan has this as a feature.  You can even make the car honk or flash its lights from your cell phone.

/costs extra each month, though, so I don't do it.

Mine is usually at the school parking lot.  Wakes me up in a cold sweat.  I put a lot of effort into personalizing my car(s) in real life and that carries over to the ones in my dreams.  Odd that some I've yet to own like a 911 or Vette are in there, but at least I'm dreaming cool cars rather than Camry type stuff.  Now if I could just keep them mine.

Shoot the hostage?

FTFA: "The Mustang and the 17-year-old car thief were found four hours later, about a half-mile from where the vehicle was stolen."

Most people can walk a half mile in tennish minutes at a leisurely pace.

I push a certain sequence on a custom phone app that opens the box of Japanese death hornets hidden under the passenger seat.

It's sad that the owner of the car felt he had to "up the ante" so the police would take the theft of his car seriously enough to try to locate it.

/Also sad that he was almost certainly right

Getting NYPD to show up and then get out of their car to do something resembling police work has been a problem for a while. 10 points for creative thinking and getting the cops to do something besides drink coffee and eating.

Alternative facts are strong in this one.

I'm not saying what he did was OK. I'm just saying the police don't exactly try hard to get stolen cars back.

My brother in law had his car stolen from outside his workplace a few months ago. He had a tracker in it and was able to pinpoint exactly where it was. The police didn't care. They took no action. They waited like a week until the car had been stripped.

This morning, a man here in Minneapolis tracked his stolen Jeep (perhaps with AirTags) & got in a shootout with the thief.  One of them (I believe the thief) is wounded to the hand + head.  Reportedly, fire dept washed off 2 different pools of blood.  Casings everywhere.  Details emerging, but sounds like shiat down - perhaps ala Dirty Harry.

If the cops aren't going to do their job, the people will take matters into their own hands.  No, selectively enforcing traffic regulations only on black and brown people and harassing gay people at the club isn't doing their job; rather the opposite of it actually.

If he'd said a special needs kid AND a blonde high school cheerleader, he'd have had it back in fifteen minutes.

not long ago when we lived in Galloway Ohio USA there was a rash of car thefts in our quiet HOA neighborhood. the local PD make it clear it was a gang of locals from 'across the tracks' and there was nothing the PD could do about it. PD advised people if you want your car back go find it yourself.
