Might be a good idea to turn your security cameras off and or make sure your not being recorded. Never defend your property. If its not locked in a secure area you are baiting. And you are basically saying its free. Bend over and take it.

Yeah, so you can’t beat someone with a bat that took the property you intentionally set out to be taken. They did it multiple times, recorded it all and put it on youtube/fb. Prob just to get 15 minutes of fame.

Does that sound like someone protecting their property to you or someone that wants a reason to beat people? Use your brain, that’s ridiculous.

Far cry from running out of your home in an attempt to grab the bike back and leaving the bike out there on multiple occasions just to get someone to take it so you can post videos on youtube for views.

Person steals bike? No problem.

Person steals bike in set up situation and gets hurt? Oh the thief is the victim here.

Liberal logic. Leaving your bike out overnight is like letting your wife out without supervision and a burka. It's just asking for it. Leaving a bike, which is your property, in front of your house, which is your property is NOT setting a "trap".

IF that were the case, then you couldn't leave anything that you own in front of your house, because you would be setting a trap.

If I leave my garage door open while I go inside for a drink and when I look at my camera I see someone going into my garage to steal tools, does that mean I baited them because I left the garage door open?

This glorifying and protecting the criminal and portraying them as a victim HAS TO STOP. but undercover drug sale stings, undercover police prostitutes.... these are all ok right?
Cops even use bait cars to catch car thieves... but thats different because they dont beat them with bats...they use other approved methods to beat the thieves ass.
Entrapment doesn't work as a defense against police, it shouldn't work against civilians when you are stealing their property.
So, you can give your life in Service to this Nation, but IF you protect your home and property from thieves you are wrong?

I was under the impression the owners left the bike out on purpose so they could catch them and post videos on youtube.

My bad.

Do you not understand that BOTH parties are criminals (and morons) in this case?

I’d have more sympathy for them if this was a one time deal, even if they did post it on the internet to send a message. However, by doing it multiple times, they are luring people into getting their ass beat- not defending their property. Honestly they are idiots for doing this
