Signs of the Crimes or Cut Off in Their Crime

Outside a Local Supermarket.

These days seems signs like this one
Increasingly appear
And they are simply not done
To instil needless fear,

For filching and hijacking
Are daily facts of life,
Crime cannot be sent packing
Without a lot of strife,

Solution was suggested
By a good friend of mine,
Don’t get these folk arrested
Or make them pay a fine,

Just place spring-loaded blade
Instead of an alarm,
Beneath the chassis laid
To do some useful harm,

For crooks with legs chopped short
Are less inclined to try
Activities the sort
Of which we now decry.

    Will not be funny when something goes wrong and amputate the car owner’s legs. Still a good way of thinking…maybe a kind of switch in the car that one can activate during a hijack, to electrify the criminal, when he opens the door.


  3. Sadly, this would not be allowed. An electrified seat that gave them a shock [like an electric fence] would also work, but we are not allowed to abuse criminals. They have rights you know.

    I don’t know about there, but here you’d get sued . . . and lose.

    . . . best also plan for discrete disposal . . .
