I was actually going to post this myself, but since no one likes me on this board, I figured what was the point?
I hope these two fucking pieces of white trash are found and thrown in prison.

I have no sympathy for POS's like these.
I was hoping that when Prince Valiant picked her up that they would have BOTH gone down.
Could have been some nice broken ribs the second time.

PS. I like you, Jim.

No doubt the thieves will sue the homeowner for her injury. (slippery grass)

My question, why did the dummy UPS driver park so far away from the house he's delivery to? No wonder packages are arriving so late.

This county is about three and a half hours from where we live.

This type of occurrence happens a lot during December when Christmas packages are being delivered on porches at various times during the day and evening. According to our police, thieves follow Fed Ex and UPS trucks around. They stay back a bit, and then steal delivered packages off of porches if they don't think anyone is home. It may only get worse as more and more consumers shop on line. I made sure I didn't leave the house on the days I knew for sure packages would be dropped off; however, one doesn't always know a delivery date.

I hope they nail that couple.

Our neighborhood puts up a lot of Christmas lights and Christmas decorations. During the last two years, obnoxious kids have stolen lights from yards, including our lights. Of course that isn't all that serious. Stealing medication or Christmas presents is much worse and just plain evil and cruel.

Yes, and irate thief returns to shoot up house and set it on fire.
How do you know he wasnt some psychic guy like Bruce Willis in "Unbreakable" - he sensed there was something wrong with the package and was trying to save the homeowner.

Or in real life he or she doesn't come back.

Every neighborhood should do this.

Sorry to hear this. I would be so infuriated.

It is sad that security cameras never deter porch pirates.

Last summer I saw what looked like my neighbor in my mailbox and I didn't receive an Amazon package I was expecting that day. If the package wasn't just lost in the mail the joke was on my neighbor being it was just a $5 bottle of spark plug lube. Amazon sent me a replacement for free.

One thing I like about Amazon's two-day shipping is that I can base my schedule around the reliable (in my area) 2-day estimate. Although it didn't prevent my neighbor from being in my mailbox even when I was home.

Yeah, what was I thinking....oh, I know: that revenge is as old and popular as sex.

LOL, show me the "Real" world where package thieves who got rigged or fake box, come back and shoot up the place.

In the REAL world, they count their blessings and hope their license plate wasn't recorded. Thieves like to get away with it and steal again.

They'll be back...trust me. They're pissed they didnt get those baby socks. Besides, if they're as rational as you think, they wouldnt be doing what they did in the first place. They'll at least return the favor in the guy's mailbox.

I've watched a number of package thieves on Youtube and the one reoccupying pattern is they only come back if they get away with it. After an exploding package, a dog shit box, etc., I can't recall a single one that has come back. At least I have a basis for my claim.

But in la la land, people think package thieves come back and shoot up the place. That's TV and movie bullshit.

I don't think that security cameras anywhere deter criminals. Every criminal just assumes that they are on camera and wears a hat, a hoodies, a mask, etc. Or they just keep their heads down, knowing that the cameras are always at eye level or above them. Even if they are caught full-faced, most cameras produce such poor images, at such poor angles, that the odds of identifying anyone from them are minuscule. Unless the criminal is stupid enough to wear identifiable clothing (and someone who knows that criminal knows that clothing and squeals), he's home free. And how many videos of recorded criminals end up on the news? One out of a thousand? Usually just you and the cops see it, not anyone who actually knows the perp.

Firstly, you're basing your claims on youtube videos?? How does that make you an expert on anything?? You gotta be joking, right?? Secondly, you keep obsessing over my example of revenge as if it's the only form of revenge possible, despite what else I wrote. Ever hear of hyperbole used to make a point? You sound like someone with Aspergers.

Yes, and even if they do care, some companies sell fake cameras; cameras that light up but arent' connected to anything -- it's show.

Plus, the likely hood of finding the guy or gal, unless the crook drops a wallet (surprisingly happens!) or has a license plate recorded, they aren't going to get caught unless they do it so often the odds are against them.


After watching a number of videos on Youtube, one thing that has struck me is how brazen they are about it. They'll park their car in front of the house, waddled up, take it and leave; so many drive up like that.

Or they'll walk up into garages or parking areas and just help themselves. This one guy had multiple people coming to his house to steal shit.

Some even smile for the camera (rare).

I can't speak for any other neighborhood except my own, but because of the area I live in, I learned a long time ago to never underestimate the criminal mind's capacity for retaliation.
Sadly, it's not just a cliche.
