The Canucks have a good idea here. . . .
Placing "Bait Cars" in areas where car theives operate. Film the crime from inside the car, notify police when one is hijacked, and disable the engine via remote control before they can flee. Then make a website so everyone can see what jackasses car theives are. Deterrence coupled with some pretty lock-tight evidence for prosecution. Right on, yeah, eh!
Of course trying to use techniques like this in the U.S. would bring the A.C.L.U. in force, and get challenged by every race-baiting politician out there.
They have some cool videos, funny, tragic and scary. [Note: Getting the videos to play is a bit tricky, look for the "High" and "Low" Resolution links under the parental advisory tag.]
