Maybe some LEO's can chime in with the law's view on this.
What's to prevent us, the public, from private rolling bike theft stings. Targeting high theft area's like Metrotown's underground parking etc.
When there was a spree of crime in my neighbourhood a few years ago, some neighbours and I took turns doing late night patrols with flashlights, walking dogs or in pairs.
The problems went away immediately.
Any suggestions or brain storming of ways to effectively implement some sort of public response to these scum sucking low life thieves? All without endangering ourselves or breaking laws.
