I love this.....this is just priceless. Watch what happens to these would-be package-thieves.

One guy on YouTube rigged his package with dog and cat shtt that would explode seconds after the thieves had the package in their getaway car. Instant karma.

Does this guy live right outside skid row? So many thieves in his area, I would move if so many people are that messed up and so many have to steal his packages. Hopefully the police catch these clowns for attempted robbery. I get many packages, fortunately I don't think I have ever had someone try to steal them but my porch is a little concealed by bushes out front and we have a pretty long driveway.

Scum. Karma happens and there was one YT video where the thief broke her leg while attempting to take packages. I've had two taken over the years. I have the UPS drivers cell number so we coordinate for a drop off time. If not I ask him to hold it but recent UPS protocols he relayed he may not have the option for a hold. USPS I can request a hold online. Fed Ex is an open door of delivery drivers so I gamble with them.

I have everything shipped to my office(btw, apparently you can directly mail firearms to and from the manufacturer for repair. I had a gun delivered to my desk once after Ruger repaired it).

And this doesn't just happen in bad neighborhoods. I have a friend who owns a home in a nice part of town and this has happened to him(a week after he had a doorbell camera installed). If anything, nice neighborhoods are more of a target because people are buying nice stuff.

Some people think that videos like these are staged, but I don't think this one is...otherwise I wouldn't have posted it. There are plenty of examples of this happening in real life.
