Steet Justice Payback
In an earlier article we learned about how some car owners are resorting to booby trapping their vehicles to prevent theft and exact a little revenge on the criminally minded. However, from that article we also learned that street justice can too easily backfire and legally make a victim out of a criminal.

Of which, it turns out resulted in the capture of some criminals and may have made an impact on deterring would-be criminals and saving at least some of the law-abiding public from a growing crime problem.
